On tap at Oggi's Pizza and Brewing Company in Santa Clarita, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, slight cocoa, and a weird plastic smell. Taste is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, and coffee grounds. There is a medium roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the plastic aroma I am getting from this one is odd.

9/10/11

On tap at Oggi's Carmel Mountain.

A: Black with a creamy tan head.

S: A pleasant blend of coffee, chocolate, and earth. There's a moderate roast with evident molasses and a faint nuttiness.

T: Dry roasted coffee with notes of earth. Lots of dark chocolate and roast. The beer is moderately bitter. There's a light nuttiness accompanying blackstrap molasses and a moderate sweetness.

M: Full in body with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is creamy and sticky.

Overall: A solid Stout.

On tap at one of the Oggi's locations in San Diego, CA on 6/30/11.

A - Black liquid with walnut brown highlights and a finger of creamy tan head on top that retained excellently and deposited an intricate web of lacing all around the glass.

S - Roasty nose with hints of chocolate and coffee as well as earthy hops. Toasted oats and grains as well as a hint of wood and alcohol round out the aroma.

T - Like the aroma, the flavor is quite roasty up front with hints of chocolate and coffee, then segues into more earthy, woody terrain in the middle, resulting in a moderate bitter finish. However, there is mild lactic sweetness to balance the earthy bitterness of the stout.

M - Medium bodied with a smooth, oily texture and modest carbonation. Finish is semi-dry with a moderate hop bite on the palate.

D - Pretty good roasty stout that is kind of dry and sweet too. Almost like a cross between a milk stout and a dry Irish stout.

Now if Oggis ever takes this beer away I will stop going back. This is the best beer they have and keeps me going back. Love my Wednesday Happy Hour.

A: Awesome pitch black.
S: Roasted Coffe, mocha, chocolate, raisins aroma-just like heaven
T: Rich moca kicks in. Coffee is prenent
M: Rich full body. Have had this many times, and good when carbnated well. When it is flat it is a shame.
O: All of the above.

On-tap at Oggi's Tustin

A: The beer pours just about black with a finger of tan colored head.

S: Something is obviously amiss right away. Green apple, booze, vinegar, and nail polish remover. There is some roasted malt aroma in there too. Maybe a bit of char and coffee.

T: This is a beer that hurts to drink. An enormous amount of nail polish remover and extremely acidic. It burns the throat and tongue a bit. Some harsh roasted malt and maybe coffee, but it's sort of hard to tell/care.

M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation.

O: Simply painful and atrocious.

This beer is a good example of what a stout should look like in a pint. Its a pitch black without any head stability which is a disappointment. There isn't a really good aroma from this brew which comes as a surprise. I get small hint of dark chocolate that's it. It leads me to be curious of the taste. It taste of black coffee and dark chocolate in the beginning and finish way to quickly like a Irish stout. Overall its a nice brew for such a commercial company like oggis.

3.48/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The presentation was nothing bold, the beer was black - no question about it, but lacked a good decent finger of head. The head was minimal and light tan.

Smell was average for any other brewpub stout you might imagine. Super dark roasted malt.

Taste was better then I thought it would be. Very smooth drink with a bite during the finish, a certain spice that I couldn't place but was very direct and I just burped another taste of it (two hours later).

Average on everything else. This is a standard stout and I really don't desire another.
