First had: on nitro at Rogue, Portland, OR

Poured black with a starkly opposing creamy tan head. Gotta love nitro. Aroma was as expected: dark roasted malts, toasted grains, notes of coffee and cocoa, with promises of earthy hops. Taste followed the aroma: dark malts and grainy oatmeal, roast and toast, cocoa, some coffee bitterness, and a hint of earthy hops. Smooth, though not as full-bodied as expected from a oatmeal stout on nitro...about medium-bodied I suppose, but still smooth and easily downable.

Poured into a pint glass. Reviewed alongside Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout.

A: Dark brown/black with three-finger, tan, frothy head that lasted a long time. Really good lacing.

S: Some chocolate, oats and hops. Mild.

T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Very roasted flavor. Oats, chocolate, and coffee. Finishes the same as it starts.

M: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Very creamy and smooth.

O: This is an outstanding Oatmeal stout. Wonderful head, perfect roasted flavor and so creamy. I wish the nose was a bit more interesting. Overall, I liked this better than the Breckenridge.

i usually don't go for the nitro and i've re-realized why. i know why places push kegs with nitro but, for pounding on the bar, pick a lesser beer to do it with

the top 20% arrived a khaki froth, neatly sequestered from the 80% of blackness below

the nitro seemed to lock in the flavors of this otherwise pungent brew. i bet the tight bubbles don't burst and release their empyreal scents like they ought. once i tip a few sips, the cloud parts and singed delicious permeates. wonderful roastyroast

similar experience with tasting the beer: it feels subdued and nitro has a definite flavor (or at least contributes to a distinct flavor). the beer's balance between sweetness and stouty astringency is superb, and hop flavors even play a fantastic part on the stage

suuuper smooth oatness (and someone would probably try to convince me the nitro contributes to this, too). one of the most drinkable stouts around

starting off the new year with a rogue breakfast, having this and the hazelnut. after hearing lots of good things about this one, i feel let down a bit. poured a dark brown with a half finger of mocha colored head that leaves very little lacing as the drink disappears. smell and taste are both the same with faint hints of roasted coffee, chocolate and the oats seem to be the last thing you experience. maybe it's just me, but i like the oats to play a more prominent roll. has a medium body with ok carbonation and a bad bitter finish. wish it was thick and chewy so i could enjoy the oats. this is just an ok oatmeal stout.
