$ 2.75/10 oz draft at Beer Run, Charlottesville, VA
Aroma of roasted malt
Head gone, thanks to the bartender – all we got is a 2 mm ring
Lacing none
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor of roasted malt, slight bitter chocolate; no hops, no alcohol, nodiacetyl
Palate medium, slightly creamy, lively carbonation.

Drinking local and I really love a good oatmeal stout. Unfortunately, this wasn’t it. It lacked the silky smoothness of an oatmeal stout – just not up to snuff.

On tap in a shaker pint, the beer is jet black, oily thick, with a thin layer of clingy, tan head. Aromas of subtle toasted grains, hints of coffee, and subtle chocolate. Very muted nose. Flavors are heavily roasted and bittersweet, with solid notes of chocolate, sasparilla, vanilla, and tangy cream, all on a toasted grain backbone. Smooth, light body, with a roasted and bittersweet aftertaste. Smooth, soft, slow finish, with a bittersweet linger.

Growler into a Spiegelau stout glass. It's a deep brown bordering on black. It has a big pillowy medium tan head with great retention. The aroma is fairly rich, with a grainy sweetness and a little bit of booze. The taste is much the same. Neither are very complex but it is good. The body is lighter but not thin, mostly smooth with just a hint of carbonation.
