I dropped into the Heartland Radio City for on of these simply because I knew it was on nitro.

My bartender was an utter tool.

Served in a pint glass.

A: Frothy and bubbly, like most respectable nitro pours, with a nice healthy, mocha-colored head that retained itself throughout the session.

S: The nose was understated overall, yet I still got a decent aroma of dark malt and grains.

T: While this was fairly light overall, I appreciated the tempered coffee bill here and the pleasant roasty, malty taste.

M: The nitro pour did wonders for the creaminess. Foamy, like a milkshake, and no booze detected.

O: Along with "Red Rooster," this was my favorite Heartland Brew to date.

On-tap at Heartland Brewery Union Square, New York, NY

A: The beer is clear but very dark reddish brown in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high dense beige head that eventually died down, leaving a collar around the edge and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderate aromas of chocolate and roasted malts in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but has a bit more complexity with flavors of roasted and burnt malts along with notes of semisweet chocolate and hints of roasted coffee beans.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied, slightly airy and very smooth and creamy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a bit of dryness in the finish.
O: This oatmeal stout is very easy to drink; it’s light-bodied nature makes it not a bad selection of you want to have an oatmeal stout in the warmer months.

Had this beer as part of a flight at the Radio City location. Cool and in sample glass.

Nice and thick light tan head with a very dark brown body. Light smell (faint coffee).

Dark toast flavor, creamy flavor. Dark chocolate.

Light mouthfeel and slick.

Excellent representation of the style. Authentic.

Nitro tap from the Heartland Brewery near Rockefeller center. 50th street maybe?

Poured a thick black color with frothy cream colored foam full of some good ol' nitrogen.

Smells grainy with some sweet malts. Couldn't detect much else.

Oaty taste that follows up with some sweetness. Some very subtle coffee undertones, but I would like them a little more prevalent.

Very smooth, pretty light body.

Overall, well balanced and quite sessionable. Not the most amazing/interesting flavor but it's thoroughly enjoyable

Poured almost pure black with a thin white head.

Didn't have much smell could get malts not much else.

It didn't have a huge amount of flavour I could get malts and some bitter hoppiness.

Felt smooth in the mouth with a little carbonation.

Overall not the best oatmeal stout, pretty mediocre.
