Draft. On tap at Town Hall Tap on nitro. Super dark brown color, almost black, with a tiny bubbled tan head. Roasted malted, coffee, and dark chocolate notes in the nose. Nice lace on the glass. Smooth, velvety medium mouthfeel, mmmm only nitro can be this smooth. Very smooth flavor, roast coffee and dark chocolate notes with an overall nice rounded out flavor. Tasty. Ends fairly dry.

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.

On tap at Green Mill in Uptown

A: Jet black with a creamy thick head. Nice cascading affect as it settles. Very visually appealing. Tons of gooey lacing.

S: Roasty toasty malt, a little cream and a hint of coffee.

T: Toasted malts, oats, sweet cream, a hint of chocolate. There is a little bit of coffee bitterness that balances out the sweetness. Clean creamy finish. Awesome!

M: Wonderful. Silky smooth full bodied, but it doesn't seem overly heavy. Very low carbonation, just how I like it in an oat stout.

D: Very very drinkable especially with the lower abv. A session stout for sure.

I love this beer. Best offering from Summit. Wish more places had it on tap.

a= pours an almost jet black with a nice creamy white head off a nitro tap with beautiful lacing on it.
s= oatmeal smell comes through quite a bit but the thick creamy head covers the odor a little bit
t= a little subdued and dissapointing. tastes a lot like a guiness but better. more flavor in the carmel malts and chocolate flavor.
m= smooth and very creamy
d= very good. pretty decent. i wish it wasnt on nitro tap, it prolly woulda had more flavor.

Appearance: After the cascading bubbles from the nitro subside, there's a nice head on top of a black beer.

Smell: Chocolate malts.

Taste: Mostly dark chocolate and coffee flavors, somewhat sweet without much bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Creamy.

Drinkability: Smooth and flavorful, easy to session.

I've had this at a few places around town now, it has taken its place atop my rankings for Summit beers. This is quite good and I'm glad I tried it!
