4.21/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

On tap at the Happy Gnome in St. Paul, MN. Served in a 16 oz. glass.

Appearance: Color is a dark brownish black with a lot of rising cream and bubbles from the nitro. Settles into a three finger off white head with good retention. Lots of creamy lacing is left.

Smell: A roasty, sweet, and very creamy malt forward aroma with good hints of chocolate and oats. Dark roasted barley malts with good hints of chocolate, oatmeal, chocolate milk, cream, and coffee as well as some grains, toast, and yeast. Sweet hints of brown sugar. Nugget hops add some bitterness. A very solid creamy chocolate stout aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a very creamy and nicely sweet dark roasted malt driven taste with nice notes of chocolate and oats. Upfront dark roasted barley malts with a solid taste of sweet chocolate, oatmeal, cream, chocolate milk, and coffee. Also some notes of toast, grains, biscuit, and yeast. Slight taste of sugar sweetness. Balancing bitterness from the nugget hops. A very solid nitro chocolate stout taste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a high amount of carbonation. Very creamy and silky smooth. Finishes fairly dry.

Overall: A pretty good nitro take on a light oatmeal stout. Good creamy chocolate notes with some balancing hops towards the finish.

Serving type: nitro-tap
