Had on-tap at the brewhouse in Anchorage.

L: Pours a dark black color with a thin tan head.

S: Very mild nose... roasted coffee and cocoa.

T/F: Expected roasted grains and espresso. Mild chocolate. .. almost tart at the finish. Too thin for the style... needed more heft in the body... smooth but almost watery.

O: Pretty middle of the road for the style.... not awful by any means too thin and I didn't enjoy the tartness at the finish.

Pours a nice dark and rich color with a thin tan head. The smell has some oat and chocolate notes. Overall the feel is nice and creamy, but the flavor didn't quite hit enough malt and oatmeal for this type of beer. Not bad, just not great.

On tap at the brewery, Anchorage, AK. Pours black with long lasting, foamy beige head. Aroma is of chocolate, toasted, nutty malt, vanilla and dry fruit. Body is medium, creamy and smooth. Taste is of chocolate malt, vanilla, coffee, herbal hops and dry fruit. Finish is long and dry. Lovely stout.

Pours black with a nice creamy khaki head. Aroma is roasty, a little burntness, a little bakers chocolate, sugars from the oats, and a touch of bitterness. Flavor pretty much followed suit. A medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, decent oatmeal stout. Nothing ground breaking, but enjoyable enough. Would drink again.

On tap at the Glacier Brewhouse in Anchorage.

A - Served a dark brown with a nice creamy dark tan head. Great retention and silky lacing left on the glass.

S - Coffee, chocolate and malts.

T - Similar to the smell, more of the oats did come through here.

D - Silky smooth body with nice carbonation for the style.

O - I enjoyed this one. Silky smooth and chocolate oats, what else can you ask for?
