brewpub draft, on nitro

a: pint glass serving, deep brown in color, appearing black in the dim old basement pub light, with a full head of mocha colored nitro carbonation, retains a full layer with nice lace

s: nose of bittersweet chocolate and smooth deep roasted barley, cream and coffee, earthy hops and a mineral note, quite nice

m: medium-full body with a typically rich, creamy nitro mouthfeel and delicate carbonation

t: opens on the palate with a blend of bittersweet chocolate and deep roasted barley, some dark toffee sugars, coffee and cream, nice mineral touch with an earthy hop profile, mildly bitter with a lingering finish

o: a great oatmeal stout, lots of character in a drinkable, attractive package

I had this at the Brew Pub. Served in a sample glass.

Appearance: The beer pours almost black with a layer of thick off white head. The head fades to a thick ring around the pour.

Smell: Smoke and some roast with a dark fruit note. I was surprised to find not much sweetness at all in this beer.

Taste: Just as the smell lead me to believe, there is hardly any sweet component to this beer. Tons of roasted malt and smoke. I also got some dark fruit and a burnt malt flavor. The finish reminds me of a camp fire.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is a bit thin with tingly carbonation and a very dry finish.

Overall: There is a ton of burnt malt here, really roasty. I don't think I need more in the future, but It was still pretty good.

This beer poured out as a nice looking black color with a light brown head on top. It's creamy looking, it's got a light lacing and strong retention. The smell of the beer is roasted, it's a little sweet smelling too. Good malt profile on the nose not much hops. The taste is also roasted, some sweetness to it with a subtle bitter chocolate flavor in there too. The mouthfeel was creamy and smooth. Very drinkable beer. Overall it was really good.
