From 06/18/11 notes. Had on nitro-tap at Franklin's.

a - Pours a dark brown color with no head or carbonation, which is expected.

s - Smells of chocolate and roasted malts mainly. Chocolate is a little sweet and very nice.

t - Tastes of sweet chocolate, cream, oat, and roasted malts. Again, very enjoyable.

m - Medium body and no carb, very smooth and creamy. Very easy to drink.

o - Overall a really nice oatmeal stout. The nitro-tap was great and made the mouthfeel perfect. Would definitely order this one again.

On nitro at the brewpub the other day. Beer is dark brown to black with a soft head of small nitrogen bubbles. lacing on the glass, aeration is low.

Aroma is mildly sweet but overall weak.

Beer is smooth and medium bodied, creamy in the mouth, mild sweetness up front, some roastiness in the back, I'm not getting much of the oats except perhaps in the filled out mouthfeel but overall it's a decent beer.

A - Dark brown cloudy brew with a small head and no lacing.

S - Apples with charred, coffee and caramel malt aromas.

T - Burnt malt, coffee, oatmeal and caramel malt. Tart apples in the aftertaste with a seltzer water and a lingering sweet burnt malt and coffee.

M - High carbonation, very thin for an oat stout. Pretty refreshing.

D - Good. A refreshing drink that went well with the food at Franklin's happy hour.

This is a 2L growler of Oatmeal Stout, poured at Franklin's in Hyattsville. I am drinking it from a DuClaw Naked Fish nonic.

Appearance: The stout is pitch black. When held to light, deep brown colors emerge but not much else. There is little head in the glass.

Smell: Deep roasted malts dominate the aroma. From time to time, the sweet smell of oatmeal peeks through.

Taste: The stout has a full deep roasted taste. Becaues there is not a significant amount of carbonation, the sweetness of the oatmeal takes a bit of time to come through. But when it does, a very sweet flavor emerges that leaves a long finish in the mouth.

Mouthfeel: The ale is smooth and sweet, giving it nice characsteristics that stand up to the roasted malts well.

Drinkability: I have a growler and plans to finish it today, so that drinkability is good.
