Well, hello oatmeal stout.
This pours a dark chocolate color with thick, creamy foaming atop of it.
There’s a light roast aroma with some candied stone fruits lurking around and a faint coffee smell. I think that nitro changes the aroma on beers, making it weaker, and this does nothing to dispel my perception.
The beer itself tastes creamy with a bit of roast and a mellowed dark chocolate. Best part is the (heh) mouthfeel.

On tap at the Ballast Point Tasting Room and Kitchen.
Opaque brown-black with a very durable, creamy beige head. Plenty of spotty lacing.
Feel: light-medium body that seems too thin; Medium carbonation.
Smell: Moderately strong mix of dark roasted malts. Hints of dark fruits. Approaches 4.
Taste: inferior to the aroma, partly because it is less complex and fruity than hoped but also due to some burnt grain qualities, especially in the aftertaste.
O: a bit disappointing, but only because this brewery has so many great beers.
