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.
