on tap at the source. their signature ale. dry and roasty with lots of malt. more of a brown ale. Not a good example of an oatmeal stout, that's for sure.

On tap at the Stubborn Goat in Halifax. Dark, dark brown with good head. Chocolate on the nose and strong chocolate on the finish. Silky smooth.

On tap at The Auction House in Halifax, and tried again from a growler fill at Rockhead.

L: Pours a very dark with some amber colors when held up to a light. A slightly disappointing creamy/light brown half finger head.

S: A nice earthy roasted malt and coffee scent, very pleasing

T: Coffee and malts right away and a dark chocolate finish, slightly bitter but overall very tasty.

F: Creamy but surprisingly lighter than I originally expected. Light to mild carbonation.

Overall this is definitely one of my favorite oatmeal stouts, very tasty and pleasing. Extremely excited for them to release the cans as finding a growler fill for this can be tricky at times
