Black color with the thickest head that won't go away.
Nice chocolaty aroma, it feels real. Hints of oatmeal and roasted, not burnt malt.
Flavor of creamy chocolate, chalky yeast, sweetened coffee, roasted malts and vanilla.
Dry aftertaste with a long roasted note.
Smooth medium body with low carbonation and a nitro feeling. It gets much lighter once nitro fades away.
All right Oatmeal Stout (or Brown Ale?), a session stout if you will, one of the easiest to drink. Tasty, but it doesn’t expect as much complexity as other of their dark beers, though some is likely masked by the nitro.

Nitro-tap in a shaker pint at Monelli's restaurant

A- Near jet black body. 2-finger, tan head sustains itself at a solid finger and leaves awesome rings on the glass.

S- quite roasty. Sweetened, dark roast coffee with hints of chocolate.

T- roasted malts hit heavy at first. Warmth mellows the bitter coffee and rounds out with sweeter qualities (vanilla, chocolate, even sugared coffee).

M- classic nitro feel, smooth and creamy.

O- a dangerously drinkable beer, though the lower ABV makes for less danger and more enjoyment. 2 pints could have easily become 3 or 4 with more time and less to do in the morning.
