On tap at the Bruery, 100 customers, 2-3 dudes working the bar. Long lines.

Beer is black, very thin ring of beige head around it.

If this is a cookie aroma, then these are prune flavored cookies. I did not enjoy the smell. Came in expecting some nice cookie type of smell, anything but.

Taste, thin, bad mouthfeel. Where's the smoothness of the oats? Where is anything that tastes like a stout? There's some mild bitterness to the beer, but it just seems like a mess. There's nothing to say positive about this. Its thin, it lacks good flavor, what is there is neither oatmeal nor cookie, it tastes like a real stout was blended with water and prunes. Pass.

Nitro

The Bruery
Placentia, CA

Black in body with a moderately-sized dark brown head. Some nice retention and a bit of cling to the glass, but not as much as other nitro-stouts I'm familiar with. Pretty enough, though relatively standard for a beer of thie style.

Roasted malt and a bit of coffee in the aroma. Simple and straightforward. I don't get any oatmeal or raisin cookie in the aroma. A bit disapointed.

The flavor is very roast-forward with a touch of coffee and some sweetness. Very simple. No raisin or oatmeal, as with the aroma.

Medium bodied, creamy, silky carbonation.

I think the name does this beer no justice--inappropriately named. Leads to certain expectations which simply aren't met. Regardless, this is a straightforward, tasty, very drinkable stout.

On nitro tap at The Bruery in Placentia, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, toasted oats, and slight cocoa. Taste is much the same with a cocoa flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
