Enjoyed a pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. Color is a nice inky oil slick black with reddish highlights near the bottom of the glass. Smells spicy and burnt, with some hop resins, nuts, and a slight red berry fruitiness hovering over singed caramel, wood char, and dark roast coffee. Palate is simultaneously roasted, nutty, and slightly tart, with coffee and chocolate flavors providing the base while redskin peanut, lemon rind, and chalky minerals add nuance. Reminds me of a thin to moderate bodied top-tier Irish dry stout with an extremely smooth, creamy mouthfeel. The smoothness has to be experienced to be believed. A drinkable oatmeal stout that has some hop presence and is curiously devoid of prominent sweetness. Screams "American" when compared with excellent British examples like Samuel Smith and not in a bad way.

Serving type: on-tap
