brewpub draft, on nitro

a: pint glass serving, deep brown in color, appearing black in the dim old basement pub light, with a full head of mocha colored nitro carbonation, retains a full layer with nice lace

s: nose of bittersweet chocolate and smooth deep roasted barley, cream and coffee, earthy hops and a mineral note, quite nice

m: medium-full body with a typically rich, creamy nitro mouthfeel and delicate carbonation

t: opens on the palate with a blend of bittersweet chocolate and deep roasted barley, some dark toffee sugars, coffee and cream, nice mineral touch with an earthy hop profile, mildly bitter with a lingering finish

o: a great oatmeal stout, lots of character in a drinkable, attractive package

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.
