Poured into a pint glass in the restaurant. Served at 55 degrees from a cask. They had the option of cask or nitro.

A: Deep black. A finger of chocolate-brown head with a little retention but held to the of the glass the whole way down.
S: Not too potent. Roastiness.
T: Sweet with light hints of chocolate. Roastiness. Finishes with slightly bitter, hoppy bite.
M: Smooth, watery, not too thick.
D: Solid stout. Good to drink warmer on a cold December day.

Stone House Stout on nitro

Pours a dark brownish black, off white creamy head and sheets of lace. A little roasted malt and coffee in the nose. In the flavor, roasted malt with a touch of smoke, nice and peaty. Other than that, a mild stout with good roasted flavor. Smooth and creamy medium bodied feel, typical of a standard oatmeal stout. Similar to other nitro stouts on the market, this one being more flavorful.

Oatmeal stout? Not so sure about that, has the flavor profile of an Irish Dry Stout, think Guinness. Have had numerous times both from nitro and from cask, both very tasty. Simple and solid for the style. Kind, gentle stout that is good for beginners who want a simpler flavor profile. While their Buck Snort Stout is more complex and their Catherine the Great is well, on another level.

Came to the table in a standard pint glass jet black when held up to the light there was a noticeable ruby tint running thru it a large creamy cascading light mocha colored head from the notrogen disspensing atop.Aromas are a bit light with some roasty malt mainly and some burnt character.Flavore are lighter as well somewhat roasted and bitter with an iron-like taste to it as well even a tinge of leafy hop in the finish.A milder oatmeal stout the nitro pour gives it a creamy mouthfeel, not bad.

This stout was just a little too smooth for my liking. Not enough good roasted stout character. It was very drinkable, but the nitro seemed to inhibit the full flavor of the beer. It had a nice black colour with a slightly off-white head. I would like to try it on cask sometime.

Part of a 5oz sampler platter.

Black & opaque in color with the standard long lasting & ever clinging cream colored tight head, it was slightly bitter, perhaps wee burnt, muddy, uneven. This may be par for the course for oatmeals, I have not had a lot of exeperience with them.

The more I drank, the more a slow burn rose in taste, with a slight hopped finish on the swallow. I will revisit this one in the future to sample its obvious rawness again.

Pours a deep amber to black in color with a creamy light tan head. In the aroma, roasty malt and a hint of coffee. In the taste, roasted malt and a small nuttiness. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry roasted malt in the aftertaste. More flavor than a Guinness, but pretty close to it.

A - dark with a bit of orange around the edges. Short tight tan head.

S - mild. Some smoke and roasted scent.

T - well grounded. Smoke, roasted barley, mild bitter in the after taste.

M - thinner than expected. No tingle or real coating.

D - easily drinkable, but it is not strong enough of a flavor to go for often. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Pours a dark cola like color with a thin off white tan colored head. There is a little lacing present. The aroma is of roasted malts and some nuttiness. The taste is of a roasted malt backbone with some nuttiness and oatmeal over tones. The mouthfeel is medium bodied. Overall it is a smooth drinkable beer, nothing harsh to upset the palet.
