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.

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).

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.

I received a great package of Blackstone goods in a trade with unclejedi and must thank him for allowing me to try this.

The beer poured from my growler to my Blackstone pint glass a very dark brown/black with a large tan head that left spots of lace around the glass. Smell was a light fragrance of roasted malt. Taste was rich, creamy, with more roasted and caramel malts. Feel is somewhat chewy and med. bodied. This is a very drinkable and well crafted brew, I could easily polish off the whole growler in a session and be very satisfied.
