3.43/5  rDev -9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Near black pour with just a hint of brown around the edges. Just shy of one finger khaki head. Very light retention. Very thin lace.

Nose is mainly milk chocolate. Light roast coffee and just a hint of hop presence.

Smooth milk chocolate hits first, followed by a sweet finish with a hint of tobacco. Light coffee and mild hops add to the dry end.

Pretty easy to drink. No risks here, just a decent glass of stout. Nice creamy body, without feeling heavy.

You could do worse than this if you want a dark beer in Nashville. (529 characters)

Poured from 12 oz bottle into snifter.

A: Pours dark black with one finger mocha head that leaves some nice lacing.

S: Roasted malts and coffee mixed with light chocolate and vanilla.

T: Again, roasted malts, lactose, chocolate.

M: Full bodied and a bit chewy. Almost like a bowl of oatmeal. Finish is a little sweet and slightly bitter.

O: Nice basic oatmeal stout. Not crazy outstanding, but I could make this a regular buy. (440 characters)

Poured from a growler to a pint glass.

Pours almost black, very appealing to the eye. Head poured to about 1 finger of a nice, dark khaki. Rapidly dissipates to a thin coating. Lacing is very fine, and notches as you drink.

Smell is a gentle roasted coffee with a hint of sharp hops.

As for taste, it is not as strong as I expected. It is a very well balanced flavor, starting with a nice sweet malt, a neutral middle, and a finish of vanilla and a hint of bitter hops.

The brew flows well over the tongue, very creamy and light. It lingers for a few moments and quietly fades out. Not drying in the least.

Overall, I was quite pleased with this local brew. It has definitely earned a spot as my session stout. An easy drinking stout with good, even taste that was quite good to drink. I am quite excited to pair it with some different food to see how it melds. (866 characters)

Had this one on tap at the Beer Sellar, after being offered a sample. Good looking beer, black in color with a thick, brown head. Good stability and thinck lacing. Smell had some roasted malt and a bit of chocolate. Very malty sweet taste, but I found myself wanting more flavor. Also found it a bit thin, not a full body like I was expecting. A good oatmeal stout, but I think I have had better. Still gets good marks, but I will always score a small local brewery a bit higher (just my opinion). (497 characters)

Had this one on tap at Blackstone ... presented as a semi-opaque black color with a thick, persistent head and good lacing. Nose is of roasted malt grains and a touch of cocoa. Predominantly sweet. As expected, very malty in tatse with some residual hoppiness making this one rather dry in it's finish. Lingering nutty character. A little thinner than I would have liked, but a good meduim-body none the less. Just a bit thin overall. A decent oatmeal stout to be sure. Not the best and not the worst ... not the best beer on tap at the Blackstone either, but worth a pint for sure. (582 characters)
