First had: on tap at the Boilermaker, Philly, PA

Poured like a typical stout, dark brown-black body, foamy tan head; moderate retention and lacing. Aroma of roasty malts, cocoa, toasted grains. About the same in the taste, big on the roast, dark malts, grains, a bit nutty, and a touch of sweetness with a counteracting touch of bitterness in the finish. A little thin in the mouthfeel, about medium-bodied. Nothing really distinctive going on here, but still a solid selection.

Poured from bottle to pint glass the beer arrives a deep rich dark black with brown edges, some retention and lacing. The nose is a pleasant blend of roasted malts together with prominent sweetness, but not overly so, and a hint of the oatmeal. The flavor also starts with the roasted malt immediately on the tongue. As the beer develops a biscuity malt base becomes more prevelant with a mild bitter and earthy mild hop character, chocolate hints, and again a malty sweetness. The oatmeal provides a nice full body. Medium carbonated. Overall, this is a good beer! A treat to have sampled, wish I had more.
