Picked up a growler from the alehouse and drank it the same day.
A nice finger of tan head on a black body. Looks good.
The aroma is coffee, chocolate and cream. Quite nice.
The taste has a solid bitterness throughout. There's a coffee and cream flavor too.
Smooth texture with low carbonation and a heavier body.
A solid stout and sessionable at 4.8%

Had a pint on tap at the brewpub. Foam tasted of intense semi-sweet dark chocolate. Very good body, excellent stout character. Well-balanced tastes of chocolate, malt, some hops--a fine oatmeal stout. Bubbles a little coarse for nitro, but a very minor drawback.

Nitro daught at City Tavern in a shaker pint. Nothing overwhelming, but nothing terrible. Middle of the road oatmeal stout. Probably won't get again, but it's a decent beer.

A - Pours a dark black with a big thick covering of creamy brownish head. The head hangs around for quite a while leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of deep roasted chocolate malts and a bit of sweetness and oats mixed in as well.

T - Starts off with some light roasted chocolate malt and a bit of sweetness and oat flavor. Through the middle a bit more sweet milk and oats come through. The finish is a mix of roasted and sweet chocolates that linger.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer feels smooth and very creamy. The beer has an very nice texture from the oats and nitro serving.

D - Very drinkable and smooth and creamy. Nice roasted flavors and sort of light but not empty at all.

Pours a four finger light brown head over a pitch liquid with clear brown edginings. Smells roast, dry earthy hops, and some cream.

Tastes potent roast, to the point of being ashy and somewhat sour. With a flavor this intense, I would expect it to be ery dry, but it's actually got a supporting sweet. Not enough depth of other character to carry the intensity through. Iron ans cherry-like sourness. Mouthfeel is md light with some oat character. My teeth are almost sticky as if from all the tiny roast suspended particles.

Draft @ SMF, Ten-22. Dark black color with off white head, very creamy (nitro tapped). Nice roasty aroma. A little too bitter for an oatmeal stout. Good creamy mouthfeel. Overall, kind of out off balance. Maybe too much going on?

Deep roasted brown in color. Smell is roasty coffee and hints of malt. Taste is more of the same with a nice creaminess. Overall a very good creamy stout at 4.8%.
