4.05/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Dark pour, nearly black. Thick tan head sticks around.

S: Coffee and chocolate smell, like a cold mocha

T: Chocolate hits first followed by the barest hint of coffee bean.

M: Creamy, heavy, and tasty mouthfeel. Smooth on the swallow with the bitterness hanging around.

D: Good for maybe one or two, but the thicker aftertaste and richness of this brew will not encourage too many.

Serving type: growler

Pours dark brown with a creamy chocolare brown head. A deep creamy, roasty, coffee and dark chocolate aroma. Flavor reminded me of a dry stout more than an oatmeal stout and I think this beer would have been better on regular tap rather than nitro. Roasted malt, coffee, dark bitter chocolate and dry. A nice creamy mouthfeel. Overall, an alright brew. Lacking the sweetness I look for in an oatmeal stout though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Served on nitro-draught into a pilsner glass at Coopersmooth in Fort Collins. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a two finger head of excellent cream, great thickness, and very good retention. Colour is a solid black.

Sm: Nutty, with strong caramel, light notes of rich chocolate, and maybe vanilla. Some milk notes. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Nicely milky, nutty, and slightly caramely, with light chocolate and very subtle cream. Complex enough, but relaxed. Slightly layered and deep, which I like. I dig it! Very nicely balanced and built.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Nicely complementary of the taste, but downright wrong for the style. It feels more like a porter than a stout (even considering the oats).

Dr: Quite drinkable and good, but lacking in complexity. I wouldn't seek it out, but it's pretty good. It does need some work, but I'd try it if you come across it.

Pours very dark black with a chalky colored creamy head that fades slowly and leaves ok lacing.

The aroma is of dark chocolate, earthy musk, and roasty coffee beans. Earthy and grassy hints at the end.

Out of balanced. Burnt flavors override and roasted notes are overpowering. Finish is too hoppy with a bitter, aspirin like flavor that lingers in the back of the throat.

Creamy, rich and smooth.

Overall, my least favorite beer here.

4.33/5  rDev +23.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

A - Black with a creamy brown head that shows pretty nice retention. The head looks thick and fluffy, and some big waves of foam wash down the glass after a swirl but only leave a little lace behind.

S - Fruity and yeasty. I smell dates and prunes along with black coffee and chocolate chips.

T - Warm chocolate chip cookies and fudge along with coffee with lots of half-n-half. Rich and sweet. I didn't know that this was an oatmeal stout when I ordered it, but I remember saying something to my fiance about how creamy and sweet it was and how I thought that it must be a milk stout. I was close!

M - Creamy and full bodied with a mellow silky carbonation. Almost chewy...like a warm chocolate chip cookie fresh out of the oven.

D - A really pleasant and rich stout that shows some really nice complexity, but might be a little too sweet and rich for sessioning.

Serving type: on-tap

3.58/5  rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 3

Completely opaque black-brown body under a creamy light tan head that lasts to the bottom of the glass, leaving sheets of lacing. Good stout appearance. Note that this beer comes from a nitrogen tap, not carbonated with CO2.

Smell (not very assertive) is burned chocolate, toasted oats, roasted malt, and coffee.

Taste follows the smell to a "t," with the burned chocolate dominating. Nice sour/sweet finish from the toasted oats.

Mouthfeel is absurdly rich and creamy, silky smooth and slurpalicious. (Long proteins from the oats.) It's the best feature of this brew.

Drinkability is a bit low for this style: I think 6.2% is pretty high for an oatmeal stout. I mean, I like the taste, love the mouthfeel, and would enjoy having two or three of these, but that ABV is on the high end.

Overall a worthy malt-bomb from a brewpub more noted for its hop-dominated beers. Give it a try.
