2.28/5  rDev -43.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

On special for $4 at Sheffields (anything for $4 in Chicago tends to be worth looking at).

A - Solid black, brownish on the edges, head is much lighter than expected. No lacing, sides clean.

S - Roasted malts, tiny bit of oats, some coffee, not really a ton going on, but it does smell like a stout, weakly.

T - Very blah. Tastes uneventful. Mild malts, a touch sweet, but there is just nothing going on here, kind of just is there in your mouth, and then it's not. Quite lacking in taste.

M - Has the consistency of some horrible health drink that went flat and is overly watery while carrying a stronger taste than the body should hold. Not good at all, almost spit out of your mouth bad. Too flat.

D - I wouldn't want to drink this again, poor mouthfeel and taste rates it low on this particular variable.

2.45/5  rDev -39.7%
look: 5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours close to black with ruby hints around the edges. About 2" of light tan head forms which has extremely good retention and lacing.

Smell: A touch of roast, chocolate and coffee. Pretty weak smell overall.

Taste: Weak roast and chocolate with an odd fruity finish. Nothing in the way of smooth oatmeal and rich roast and chocolate flavors.

Overall: Medium bodied with low carbonation. Pretty good here. I did not care for this oatmeal stout much. Maybe due to the fact that it was on nitro tap it killed the flavors, but I found it pretty weak all in all. I'd try this out again if given the chance.

Serving type: nitro-tap

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

A-Black with tan foam that hangs around for half a pint

S-Roasted chocolate malt

T-Dark malted with chocolate notes, slight bitterness from malts

M-Pretty light for the style and for how it looks it will be.

D-Average for the style, could have a few.

Overall-One of my favorites from Summit, which tends to go a little heavy on the bitter hops for most of their brews.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Served in a 16oz chilled pint glass at JL Beers in Fargo, ND
Looks like espresso during the first second of the pour followed by the nice cascade effect from the nitrogen and just under two fingers worth of creamy nitro-head. Smell is very similar, espresso and coffee, with a very slight sweetness of chocolate. First taste is of roasted barley finishing with a malty sweetness. Full Bodied and lingers for little while after it's gone. A very nice alternate to Guinness for desert.

S- Faint nose of coffee.

T- Smooth, slightyless sweet aftertaste.

M- Silky and on the watery side of things.

Served this Oatmeal Stout on tap, in a pint glass. Poured a very nice dark brown color, almost black, produced a tan average head, retention was average and it left ample lacing on the glass. The aroma of this stout consisted of roasted grain, and milk chocolate. Full bodied, this stout is smooth, creamy slick- You notice the mouthfeel almost before you taste anything. Roasted grain, milk chocolate, a splash of coffee complete the flavor profile of this beer. Excellent session beer, very nice example of a traditional oatmeal stout.
