We are huge dark beer fans and this is our favorite 'every day' stout. Pours beautifully and has that great 'Guinness' appearance. Packed with flavour, never disappoints. We get regular growler fills from Old Saratoga Brewing Co, tasting room. $7

It pours almost black, but in reality it is a very dark brown. It sports a mocha head with moderate retention and excellent lacing that cascades slowly down teh sides of the glass. The aroma carries hints of smoke and dark chocolate. Lots of burnt malt detectable. The taste follows suit. Slight smokiness with a lot of grain. bitter chocolate in teh finish with a slightly sour aspect. the mouthfeel is a little light, but the carbonation follows suit nicely. Very nice beer. hearty, yet surprisingly mellow.

a: Black as night with a 2 finger chocolate colored head. Light ring lace and good head retention.

s: Smells of roasted coffee, chocolate and malt. Very smooth and creamy. Very smooth balance of smells.

t: Thick and malty. Coffee taste is strong and bitter with nice hop tones. Very rich and firm. Nice strong beer.

m: Full bodied, creamy, chewy. Really fills the mouth

d: Very drinkable and smooth. Great after dinner beer.

Dark and rich with a tight carbonization. Good value at TJ's.

One of my favorite oatmeal stouts. I love that it is located locally, and that I can stop in for samples. Their whole line seems to reasonably priced. Last year I only bought a six pack then I found out it was seasonal. This year I already have a case, and I am headed to Minogues for another growler of it Yum!
