Had on draft.

Pours a deep brown with a finger of creamy tan head. The head has great retention and lacing.

Unfortunately there is just no aroma. No matter how much I shove my nose in the glass, I barely get anything. Maybe some chocolate and a hint of malts. Disappointing.

The flavor doesn't fare much better. There's some notes of chocolate and dark malts with a hint of roast, but it's entirely bland. Guinness is more flavorful.

The feel is great for the style. Soft and creamy, with a fluffiness making the beer seem heavier than it is. Carbonation on the lighter side.

Overall, a bland and mediocre stout that just lacks flavor and aroma. I appreciate subtle, straightforward stouts that aren't assaulted by adjuncts, but this is too subtle.

This is one of the smoothest beers out there. Almost a silky feel, but lacking a little in terms of sharp flavors

Had a pint with brunch at the FPBC Grill and Tap in north Scottsdale today for $2.00.

Pint was served with a small nitro head.

Nose was mild roasted sweet malts.

Taste followed the nose; medium roasted malts were sharp enough to grab the palate's attention with hopping adequate enough to keep the sweet malt base balanced fairly well.

Mouthfeel was light and not overly satisfying.

Overall a decent flavored beer that is worthy of a shot.

First had at Four Peaks, Terminal 4, PHX, on draft into pint tumbler. Rather authentic, light (on the oatmeal and otherwise) English-style stout, with all the good and bad inherent in the style.

Got a pint of the Oatmeal stout which was to my surprise served nitro style. It was pitch black with a good 2 finger foam head. The mouthfeel was obviously soft and a pillow to my tongue. The was of a slight chocolate taste with a mild bitterness. Aroma was roasty coffee nose and overall a solid stout.

On nitro into a shaker pint.

On tap at the brewery. From notes. Reviewed 9 January 2016.
4/4.25/3.75/4.25/3.5
Black dark. Mocha head.
Smells like chocolate and deliciously roasted malt. Some toffee.
Rich and creamy, with little other than sugars going on in the maintaste. Hint of caramelization. Milky and fun.
