On Nitro from the brewery.
A- Dark brown, nearly black. If you didn't hold it to the light, you would swear it was none more black. The cascade was a little weak but oh well. This provides the great head. Thick lacing.
S- Aroma is very soft and subtle. Not intimidating at all. Light chocolate and roasted oats.
T&M- Very creamy and soft texture. Roasted oats are smooth and not harsh and cocoa is left on the palate. Not very bitter but a slight burnt coffee in the aftertaste. Medium-bodied with that great feathery carbonation from the nitro.
D- This doesn't come out to assult your senses. The taste begins to grow and become more complex and you really start to appreciate this beer. Like Guinesss, made to drink a ton off by being ultra smooth and sessionable. I just wish they would brew this more often, not just around Irish Fair time.

On-tap (nitro) at Stub & Herb's on March 25. Summit's common draft-only option, and one I've been meaning to try for years.
The pour is beautiful. Dark brown, nearly black, with just a shade of light coming through the edges. Two fingers of dense pillowy head. Outstanding retention, lacing that could define the word.
Smell is deep roasted, woody, a touch charred, with a hint of fluffy-sweet from the oats. Would be nice, if it were a bit more robust.
Taste is quite good. Clean and rich, starting out lightly charred, then drifting to a smooth sweetness, then fading back into a soft bitterness. Layers of flavors, all good. Yum.
Feel is outstanding. I've had beers on nitro that felt flat and dull, but this has enough prickle, and enough smoothness, that I'm fully satisfied. Almost thin, but the oaty fullness saves it from any such problems.
A top-notch low-ABV oatmeal stout. Smooth, flavorful, rich. I'll be drinking more of this.
