4.33/5 rDev +6.4%
First off, this was slowly and properly poured at Stub & Herbs in Mpls. Appearance is a deep jet-black with a gorgeous frothy tan head that you could float a quarter on. Aromas of roast malt and dark bitter chocolate are everywhere with a hint of grassy English hops. Flavor is....well, silky smooth and oh so creamy again with the roast malts and dark bitter chocolate. Hop bitterness and flavor are just enough to balance out the sweetness and creaminess. This is a great quaffing beer and if I would change anything it would be to allow the oats to come through a bit more. This was more like a Guinness than an oatmeal stout but an awesome stout nonetheless.

Appearance is very good. Lots of head and a fair amount of lacing.
Smell and taste are very good. The smell is a bit weaker than the taste. The oatmeal really comes through while drinkin and expecially as it warms.
Mouthfeel was very good, medium in body.
Drinkability is good, only inhibited by the mouthfeel being a bit heavier.

Served in a nonic pint glass
The beer is a deep opaque brownish-black with a tan head that dissipates into some spotty lacing down the glass.
Great aroma from this beer: Nutty malt, chocolate, toffee, a light hop odor as well.
This is a great tasting stout loaded with flavor. A burst of milk chocolate, then nuttiness, oatmeal, a little vanilla and a lingering bite of bitter dark chocolate. Surprisingly layered.
The mouthfeel is spot on: smooth and creamy with little carbonation. Nearly perfect.
Overall, this draft-only beer from Summit is a great example of the style and I'm pleased I got to try it.

Served in a nonic pint at the Milwaukee Ale House.
A: Dark brown with the deepest mahogany. Mocha colored head which stuck around for half the beer. Better than average lacing.
S: Roasted malts and hints of dark chocolate. Vague smell of oatmeal cookies.
T: Roasted oats, chocolate, malty deliciousness.
M: Thick, oily, low carbonation. Exactly what a stout should be.
D: Very high. At 4.7%, it's extemely sessionable, and a great winter warmer. I couldn't wait to order a growler of this.

On tap at the brewery. Heavy cascading action as I watch being drawn off the tap. The head is thick and creamy. The nose is mildly malty and smells almost "creamy" with some touches of smoke. The flavor is consistent with the nose. Rich and creamy mouthfeel with a slight touch of smoke flavoring. Clean finish that is very light considering all that is going on. The rich flavor and mouthfeel and the fullness of the flavors would lead me to expect more of a residual aftertaste. It stays pretty clean and the creaminess begs to be sipped again.

I was given this in a shaker pint.
Appearance- Look at that beautiful, black body! No highlights on this one whatsoever. The head is about a finger, very dense, and a light tan in color. It almost looks like a head off a nitro-tap, but I am assured it is not. And the sheet lacse is fantastic.
Smell- The head is slightly roasted, just a little bit of sweet, caramel-like malt. There is some oat in there, but it is crazy big.
Taste- The sweet quality is apparent immediately, slightly toffee and a little dark fruit. There is some roastiness and oat that follows into a decent finish. This is really good!
Mouth feel- Well, it goes down easily. However, it is just a medium body and a little watery on the tongue. I would appreciate a little more creaminess.
Overall- This is a really solid stout. It tastes great and feels pretty good. I would have this again and again.
