A: [3.00] Dark black body. The head is a khaki brown with *very* aggressive bubbling. I am accustomed to beers with a fairly stable and inactive head this looked like I threw an Alka Seltzer in it. Lots of vigorous popping bubbles. The can has a born on date (I think). It is Oct of 2013. So this is 11 months old. The head settles into a thin film.

S: [3.75] Coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Very classic stout aroma.

T: [3.50] Nice charred wood flavor - a smokey taste. There is some chocolate on the finish. Much more coffee as it warms.

M: [2.50] A little too carbonated. I don't think a stout should have a "sting" on the tongue.

O: [3.25] I "stole" this beer from my dad's fridge. I am not sure how he acquired it - he only drinks AAL. I am sure it has been tucked away in there for months. I know nothing about this brewery or their products. This beer is decent (It is definitely the best thing my dad has). I think it if was inexpensive I'd kick back with a few. The carbonation is the only thing that is really out of whack. Everything else plays well enough to be enjoyable.

Poured a very dark opaque chocolate color with a 3F head in stein.

Aroma is quite good-light chocolate, and fruit- cherry(?)

Mouth feel is relatively mild.

Taste/finish: light roasts, malty, some fruit. The taste and finish are similar to a Bock.

Overall- a very easy drinking stout. Enjoyable, especially when one is not in the mood for
an over-the-top stout, high ABV beer.

On tap at a Western Massachusetts diner on July 28, 2013.

It was a deep dark black pour with a modest beige head and very opaque. The head faded after a moment or two.

I did not pick up much in the way of oatmeal on the nose but I did get a decent dose of coffee malts and subtle sweetness.

The body was around medium with some light astringency.

The taste was also on the slightly sweet side with a moderate lingering dryer finish. Some smoke too. Oatmeal stout? Not sure if it fit the profile I am used to but it did remind me of an Irish Dry Stout.
