I enjoyed this on Nitro pour at the pub served chilled in a glass.

The color is black except for a brown hue at the base with creamy light beige head and small bead with head retention good and lace that sticks well. The aroma is roasty with a sweetened coffee type odor with mild caramel and roasted malt scents. The feel is smooth and rich with moderate roasted grain and nitro feel giving a cask-type creaminess with mild sweetness mid palate with light toasted texture continuing into the semi-dry finish.

The taste is very mild for the style with subtle malt and gentle roasted quality yet there is a moderate amount of that roastey flavor with slight grain sweetness and caramel with subtle yeast smoothness and low bitterness in general. This is a very drinkable stout which is more on the sessionable side, but has enjoyable flavor and is quaffable in every way.

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
