I had this on tap at Ballast Point. It pours a very dark cola brown and opaque. The head is a light taupe color. The head fades to a thin cap quickly. Coffee nose. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Creamy to the finish. Standard stout. But, miles better than Guinness.

Serving type: on-tap

I had this at Ballast Point in Little Italy.

The beer is dark brown, nearing black, with a thin beige collar. Aromas of chocolate, dark malt, grains, bread. Some dark fruit and raisin notes in the flavor. Really smooth on the palate due to the serving medium. Well balanced and easy to drink. Good stuff.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Draft at Winberie’s. Dark chocolate pour with minimal head. Thick, chewy oatmeal/chocolate/raisin mouthfeel. One of the first where the oatmeal plays a strong starring role against the other flavors here. Creamy, smooth and delicious. Need to find more of this.

Reviewed from notes taken last week in San Diego.

A-Pours a coffee black with some brown on the edges. Small light mocha head brown with decent retention. Spotty lace after a creamy thick nitro cascade up to the top of the glass on pouring.

S- Nitro seems to not release aroma as much for me. Cocoa powder and toasted oats with some black roasty malts.

T- More going on here as flavors release nicely, cocoa powder desserts and a fresh bowl of oatmeal. Roast cracked mash grains, toffee, caramel and some dark fruits, milky sweet and espresso hints.

S- Silky nitrogenated body with the obvious lack of carbonation bite, smoother. Finishes with a slight roasted bitterness.

Solid unsweetened cocoa powder forward and nice oat feel. Roasty grains with some fruit. Nitro doesn't really enhance it all that much for me.

Serving type: nitro-tap
