On tap at the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis. Served in a shaker glass.

Appearance: Color is a dark blackish brown. Moderate amount of bubbles and about one finger of beige head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A roasty and fairly sweet dark malt forward aroma with a scent of chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Dark roasted barley malt with hints of dark chocolate, coffee, smoke, biscuit, oatmeal, and yeast. Sweet hints of brown sugar. Subtle hints of dark fruit along with some earthy hops. A very solid smokey aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a roasty, smokey, and sweet dark malt driven taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Dark roasted barley malt with good notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and smoke along with some oatmeal, biscuit, caramel, and yeast. Sweet note of brown sugar. Slight dark fruit presence. Light backing notes of earthy hops. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, silky, and pretty smooth.

Overall: A pretty good smokey version of an Oatmeal Stout. Good roasty chocolate, coffee, and oat notes with a nice touch of smoke.

This poured with a dull ebony hue and a thick brown head that coalesced well across the center.

The aroma has a dry smoky characteristic with a tinge of chocolate malt and a weak oatmeal.

The flavor is very well balanced between the smoke aspect and the stout. The smokiness is easy and never overpowering so allows the chocolatey malt and oatmeal to come through, especially at the finish.

The feel is dry but has an added velvety smoothness that lifts across the palate. Not a lot of carbonation I would say it's below moderate.

The category of smoked stout is not available so oatmeal stout will have to do. The smoke character is so well done that even if smoked beers is not your thing I believe this one may turn your opinion.

Aroma is fairly smoky and peaty, with roast malt and oat nuttiness finishing out.

Flavor is chocolatey throughout, with a touch of dark fruit character early, finishing roasty, slightly bitter, with soft smoke lingering in the aftertaste. Another well crafted Hammerheart brew. Finished a touch overly bitter.

Appearance: Black, good head.

Smell: Bit of dark chocolate, coffee, bit of smoke.

Taste: Dark chocolate to start, mild sweetness throughout, light smoke in the finish.

Overall: Brought home a mini-growler of one of Hammerheart's year-round beers. It's a solid oatmeal stout with just a bit of the smoked malt that Hammerheart likes to use in most of their beers. Good beer.

Deep, dark blackness, lush tan head, leaving some film behind.

Aroma: cocoa and coffee, creamy, sweet, malty and delicious.

Taste: here comes the smoke, but it's just a hit, nothing major, a little trickle on the palate that rests awhile and lightly lingers. Rich, malty, full-bodied, and exceptionally smooth. There's a flash of bitterness, swiftly smothered by toasty/roasty malt. Liking it lots.
