Had this on-tap at the Mountain Sun Pub

Nearly opaque, lots of lacing.
Spicy nose

Excellent bitter but smoothed out overall.

Clean feel with more carbonation than many stouts.

7.5% ABV according to the pub menu.

This is one to seek out if you're at Mountain or Southern Sun.

for the most part it seems like stouts are what these guys do best. this might not be their most ambitious take on the style, but its a really tasty beer. heavy on the oats, this is a great showcase of what they can do in a beer in terms of both flavor and body. through the cloudy near black beer i can pick up their slightly sweet, starchy earthiness. its a great compliment to the very bitter dark barley in this one. notes of coffee and char from that, without much sweetness in the center. there is a richness to the beer despite it being dry. thats the oats. they make it fluffy and big feeling, without being heavy. it flows and then lingers, the feel is great. it could stand a little more carbonation i think, but the smoothness from the oats makes me miss it less. some hops on the back end too, but the dark malt and oat duality is what i will remember this beer for. on the negative side, its just a touch tannic, like it may have been sparged a little too hot, has that grain hull thing going on a little bit, but i love the heavier handed use of both dark barley and the oats. well done overall, really drinkable for what it is, and a perfect companion to their best in town chicken wings!

One of six stouts we shared last night at the Vine Street Pub during Stout Month. Poured from the tap a shiny black color, with a thinnish white head. Aromas of coffee, oats and roasted malt. Medium bodied and silky, with coffee, roasted malt and oats.

Near balck color with a silky tan head. Good retention and lacing.

Aromas of complex malts and candy. Some floral hops, dark fruits and bitter molasses.

A delicious blend of sweet oats, buttery malts and ripe dark fruit all surrounded by bitter earthy hops.

A thick body with just enough carbonation. One of the best oatmeal stouts I have ever had. Nice job on this one Sub.

Stout month at vine street. A dark pour, near black, perhaps a bit light on the edges. Soapy brown head had some good lacing, looked a bit chocolatey.
Coffee and burnt caramel in the nose, some cocoa and plum. Taste bordered on strong influence of coffee, but it sweetened up a bit with some fruitiness. Caramel, cocoa and brown sugar in the back..
Good snap to it in the end, good finish.

I really like this stout. I've become a bit spoiled by so many imperial stouts that something with a lower abv doesn't pack a flavor punch I want. This is still a strong beer (7% abv, I believe), but it's not in the 10-20% range of imperials. That said, I feel this does pack in a lot of flavor and aroma and is very smooth. Heavily roasted malt with notes of chocolate and caramel and coffee come through beautifully, but commingle in a way that creates nice complexity. The oat evens everything out and gives it fantastic body. I wish this was a year-rounder at the pubs. Oh and the name is great too!
