Had this on nitro at Whistle Binkies. Pours a dark brown/black color with a creamy tan head that left sheets of lacing down the glass. Very nice! Aroma was a little light, some watered down roasty malts, hints of chocolate. Taste was very nice. Roasted malts were in good supply, some chocolate and coffee notes, and a nice creaminess. I for one do not like nitro-tap brews. While the flavor of this beer was spot on, the body was off for me. Yes, it was creamy, but it was definitely missing that carbonation bite that would have really made this beer sing. The nitro basically ruined this for me and made a good beer less drinkable. It just seemed like flat, watery beer. Where is the body on this thick tasting brew?? If I could find this carbonated with CO2, I would enjoy it much more.

A: Dark brown/black with a solid cream-colored head; beautiful looking with great head

S: Heavy oats and dark chocolate malt--so malty

T: Creamy with, again, a heavy oat presence; fairly simple but so delicious; subtle chocolate and vanilla beans

F: Incredibly creamy; great mouth coat and feel

D: Nearly chuggable, however, the incredible presence of oats makes the beer become slightly tedious toward the end of the glass

On tap at Stub and Herb before a Gopher basketball game. Ordered with a signature burger. Great combo!!!!

First thing you notice is it's pretty much jet black. Nice off-white head with impressive lacing. Smells of roasted malts and dark chocolate with some coffee scent present. Tastes much like it smells but the smoothness is what gets me. So smooth its almost incomparable. Very creamy. Can't detect the oats as much as I would like but definitely a strong choice.

May I suggest pairing this brew with a Signature Burger (at Stub and Herb in Mpls of course), sub fries with the 10,000 Lakes dressing (great both on the burger and with the fries). A solid choice for anyone before a sporting event or just out for dinner.
