On-tap at Alpine brewpub. Served in a taster glass.
A - Dark brown with khaki head, about 1 finger. Head is very thin and bubbly. This beer is probably better suited to a nitro tap.
S - Smells like coffee with a touch of chocolate and milk.
T - taste follows the nose to a good extent. A bit of burnt malt and brown sugar followed by a bit of bitterness and a toffee/coffee finish. Average considering the style. Not big on flavor, but also easy to drink and not a strong alcohol taste.
M - thin and high carbonation. Not a good aspect for me. I was surprised how watery this was for a stout.
O - a decent, light stout, but a little too watery for my tastes. I wouldn't be opposed to having this one again.

On tap at the brewpub in Alpine.
Appearance: Clear dark-red brown but opaque in the glass; the decent looking head soon reduces to a thin ring. Essentially no lacing.
Aroma: appealing mix of medium and dark malts with a hint of caramel.
Flavor: lightly sweet; ample dark roasted malts; a touch of coffe in the aftertaste and a hint of molasses earlier on..
Feel: Medium-light body with low but lively carbonation.
O: a fine stout.

Got in a trade with swingracex. 22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, oats, and light earthy hops; with good strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt, oats, and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice oatmeal stout. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, oats, and light earthy hop flovors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
