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.
