On tap, Cincinnati

Pours a dark black, almost opaque, foamy khaki head. Smells of dark toasted malt, black licorice, cocoa nibs, char. Tastes of coffee, roasted malt, char, dark chocolate, oats & caramel. Medium/light body with medium carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and finish. Nice toasty oatmeal stout

Served way too cold. Had a nice nose, but came off very thin on the flavor and mouth feel until it warmed up to the proper temp.

Next to the IPA, this was the best they had to offer. Rich, creamy and dark stout. Light on alcoholic content for a stout. Light in the mouth and finished smooth without any lingering taste of oatmeal.

I went to the Rock Bottom in Cincinnati, though because it's a chain I am going to assume the beers carry over the same. I ordered a flight of six of their standard beers and as I tried each one I found that each was spot on to the style. The remarkable thing is how unremarkable the beers are. Don't get me wrong, they are well worth the try and certainly above average but they are produced for a mass market. So as lazy as it may be I am going to simply say that this beer was a text book example of the style without breaking out and setting itself above.
