A: Served a dark brown-black color with a creamy tan head that fades slowly to lots of lacing.

S: Nice rich aroma of roasted malt and grain, with a bit of chocolate and coffee.

T: Flavor of roasted malt, some grain, with a mixture of chocolate and coffee. There is a mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Fairly full body, smooth and creamy with a velvety texture. Very good balance

Easy drinker. Excellent stout, a good example of the style. Well worth checking out.

Came to the table with a foamy, tan, 2 finger head and a dark black color, with streaks of red when held to the light. The taste and aroma have coffee, oatmeal, and chocolate. Smooth and creamy, medium bodied, the carbonation is fairly light. Nice drinkability, with a mix of sweetness and coffee bitterness. Nicely made.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Serving glass: Poured from tap into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Jet black with thick creamy tan head expected for a nitro beer. Fantastic lacing lines.

Smell: Dry roasted aroma with chocolate, light coffee and oats.

Taste: Somewhat sweet creamy taste with light roasted character, highlighting light coffee, milk chocolate and oats.

Feel: Exceedingly smooth and creamy but maybe slightly thin. Expected nitro feel, which is quite nice.

Drinkability: Very easy to drink with more flavor than a typical nitro beer. Great Oatmeal Stout overall.

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.

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.
