I had this at the Brew Pub. Served in a sample glass.

Appearance: The beer pours almost black with a layer of thick off white head. The head fades to a thick ring around the pour.

Smell: Smoke and some roast with a dark fruit note. I was surprised to find not much sweetness at all in this beer.

Taste: Just as the smell lead me to believe, there is hardly any sweet component to this beer. Tons of roasted malt and smoke. I also got some dark fruit and a burnt malt flavor. The finish reminds me of a camp fire.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is a bit thin with tingly carbonation and a very dry finish.

Overall: There is a ton of burnt malt here, really roasty. I don't think I need more in the future, but It was still pretty good.

This beer poured out as a nice looking black color with a light brown head on top. It's creamy looking, it's got a light lacing and strong retention. The smell of the beer is roasted, it's a little sweet smelling too. Good malt profile on the nose not much hops. The taste is also roasted, some sweetness to it with a subtle bitter chocolate flavor in there too. The mouthfeel was creamy and smooth. Very drinkable beer. Overall it was really good.

Pours a deep amber color, almost black. A nice, creamy, off-white color one-finger head that remains throughout most of the beer.

The scent was of light roasted malt, notes of coffee.

The taste was of roasted malt, with some notes of chocolate and some faint notes of coffee.

Full body, very creamy and smooth, low carbonation.

This was a really nice beer, the balance of the flavors was perfect and was pretty easy to drink.

Pours a dark brown, light red tint, thin cap of creamy off-white nitro pour head. Scent leads with an odd rusty, earthy and mineraly profile, moderate notes of roasted grain, chocolate and coffee. Taste leads with roasted grain, moderate amounts of coffee and chocolate, faint dark fruit and again a minerally taste. Medium bodied, even with nitro pour, lightly dry, lacking full creaminess expected from combination of pour and style. Some good things going on here, but nothing overwhelmingly good.

A - A thin fingers worth of lush ultra creamy eggshell colored head... The color is a deep dark brown that lets a bit of light leak in around the bottom of the glass where it displays a reddish hue.... Mostly still with limited carbonation...

S - Faint chocolate... Coffee... Some light dark fruit notes...

T - A good bit of molasses... Light chocolate notes... Perhaps a hint of coffee... Some very lightly roasted malt notes...

M - Medium bodied... Limited carbonation... Silky smooth... A bit of chalkiness on the finish...

D - A respectable stout... Not sure I would have pegged it as an Oatmeal Stout though... The nitro-tap pour adds some nice character...
