Enjoyed on tap at Endion Station. Pours a dark chcolate brown with a creamy tan head that persists nicely.
Aroma is roasty, chocolate, a bit of coffee, maybe a touch of dark molasses.
A tasty stout. Lots of dark chocolate and roasted notes, a bit of coffee, a hint of sweet brown sugar or caramel.
Great mouthfeel, smooth and creamy, luscious.
Outstanding.

From a mini-growler (crowler?) into a nonic. Pours a fabulous thick dark brown almost black walnut with 2 fingers of thick khaki head with great retention and decent lacing. On the nose, nice: roasted grains, a little faint dark chocolate, some bitter coffee. Taste and mouthful, this is really good: follows the nose, but a little more chocolate, a little less coffee, good integration of flavors that starts around midway and carries on through the end. I don't get much vanilla, for which I am grateful, though there is some cream. It has a sweet edge to it that does a little battle with the hints of coffee bitterness. Quite full bodied, malty, with a very smooth mouthful, and a dry finish. This pretty much nails what I take to be an oatmeal stout's goals. Here's what would be fun...a side-by-side of this one and summit's oatmeal stout. My money would be on this one.

Above average but not spectacular in every aspect. Coffee notes and smooth drinking

Coffee and chocolate nose and a little sour, grain, oats, roast and toast on the palate with traces of caramel and chocolate. A little bitter from the roast on the finish. Full bodied with medium carbonation.
