First had: on tap at the brewpub

Typical stout in appearance, dark brown-black with a solid cap of tan head; moderate retention and lacing. Basic aroma, dark roasty malts, toasted oats, notes of baker's chocolate. I thought this one was quite tasty, with good solid flavors of dark coffee and semi-sweet chocolate, dark malts with a very slight roasty bitterness. Medium body, mouthfeel was a little on the thin side, but improved as it warmed. No surprises here, just a good stout overall.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a dark, slightly dull, brown to black coloring with a tall, frothy, foamy, light tan head that has some staying power. Aromas of toasted oats and chocolate, both sweet and bitter. Flavors are thin at first, but then they get very rich. Bittersweet and syrupy rich chocolate flavors overshadow the dry feel the body of the beer starts with. Clingy lacing left along the glass as you drink, the aftertaste is candy sweet, with a touch of bitterness. Cloying, slightly lingering aftertaste. This would make a great ice cream float, but otherwise it's a little rich and unbalanced for my tastes.
