4.68/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: Deep, beautiful blackish-brown with a one-finger tan head.

S: Chocolate and roasted coffee highlights, roasted malts.

T: Delicious chocolate and roasted coffee malt hits immediately with the sweetness and smoothness of the oatmeal, but with the slightly dry finish of a dry stout. Fantastic flavor.

M: Creamy and smooth, yet also wants to remind slightly of an Irish stout in the finish (hence the title). The flavors wash over the taste buds and flavor abounds, and it leaves a smooth, sweet aftertaste.

D: Very delicious. I could have one [or several!] of these every day and not get tired of it. I paired it with their hamburger, whose meat is marinated in the same stout along with worcetershire and garlic. So very good.

A - Deep dark brown, opaque. little head with little lacing.
S - strong roasted coffee aroma, very intense
T - An abundance of roasted malt flavor gives it a coffee taste accompanied with layers of oat and chocolate flavors. Very tasty stout.
M - low carb with good body. enjoyable and refreshing.
D - This was my favorite of all their styles on tap. I could drink this all night if I was forced to.
