32oz growler purchased at Beer'd a few hours ago. Pours a dark brownish black color with a 1/2 inch of head. Some lacing. The aroma is sweet with vanilla and caramel. Some earth and malts. The taste is dark chocolate and vanilla with some sweet oats and caramel. Some bitter black coffee towards the end with more of the vanilla and oatmeal. Caramel finish. Creamy, velvety mouthfeel. Minimal alcohol presence. Very drinkable but hearty Oatmeal Stout. Overall, a solid beer.

I am sampling a 2 L growler picked up at the brewery and poured into a snifter. The beer pours a rich dark brown with some creamy tan head that foams up to a surface layer and fades quickly to a sturdy edge layer. The aroma is dry chocolate and lots of roasted malt.
No hints of booze or any real hop presence on this nose.
The first sip reveals an average body and very smooth textured beer with fine rolling carbonation.
The beer is very easy to drink and the smooth body only makes it easier to go down the hatch.
Flavor is roasted malt and dark chocolate. I also get some faint coffee bean, but no hops or booze on this beer. Very drinkable and smooth. A well made CT beer in a hearty style that I find very enjoyable this evening.

Thick, creamy and tastes like tobacco! Jet black, light-tan head w/ 1 finger of head. On cask. Delicious!
