Served on tap into a pint glass

A- Poured a really dark brown with nice frothy mocha colored head that left splashy lace

S- Big sweet belgian chocolate,

T- Big dark cherry, sweet belgian chocolate, and Dr. Pepper like flavors. Some light roasted coffee ground notes. Lots of sweet caramel and bready malt character

M- Very creamy and smooth, medium to full bodied, finished dry, soft carbonation

O- Really nice sweet stout with complex flavor profile and a wonderful smooth mouthfeel. A top notch stout.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

A nice oatmeal stout, Nebula poured a typical dark brown-black with a patchy tan head. Smell of dark malts and licorice. Taste was a smooth blend of chocolate, raisin, and licorice, with definite pronounced tones of--as my astute wife noted--Dr. Pepper. Definitely an interesting flavor to pick up in a stout. Heavy-medium mouthfeel, and pretty smooth. Nice drink overall.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Dark black colour with brown hightlights. Foamy tan head. Poor head retention.

Decent roasty, nutty aroma. Mild coffee. Slightly herbal.

Nice roasty coffee with a touch of caramel sweetness. Light earthiness. Moderate bitterness. Good.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A balanced but full flavoured stout. Not too big on either chocolate, roast or coffee. Good.

A: Dark brown/black color with a medium bodied head that sticks around for a little while.
S: Oats, honey, coffee, chocolate amongst other things. A very nice smell.
T: Tastes just like it smells. A pleasant combination of coffee, spices, chocolate and oats.
M: Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.
D: One of my all time favorites. Block 15 hit the nail on the head with this one. It's delicious and smooth. I rarely visit Block 15 without ordering at least one of these.

Block 15 now calls this a Naked Oat Stout. It states on their menu that they use golden naked oats, rather than rolled oats in the recipe. Visiting from Portland a few times a year, it is good to see the subtle tweaking this brewpub is doing. Their beers are becoming really outstanding. Pours a jet black pint with a full finger tight brown head. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, burnt sugar and molasses. There is a lot going on in the flavor world here, chocolate cake, nuts, and a tiny bit of roast. Mouthfeel is full, but not cloying with an amazing smoothness.
