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.

Can: Poured a black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with light black chocolate notes is quite enticing. Taste is a mix of light roasted malt with some chocolate notes with residual sugar notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Very well brewed for the style with good drinkability.

On tap at the stubborn goat. 4oz taster @ 5.4%: Almost opaque black color with a copper hue. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, roasted grains, and herbal hops. Slick and smooth medium body with a moderate crisp. Medium strength finish, a bit chalky, rich cappuccino feel and soft tobacco. Good balance but slightly dull. Overall good quality craft.
