Served in a shaker pint glass at the brewpub.

Just off the train from a day-trip to the City, time to relax with some dinner and some beer. This one pours a dark garnet-brown topped by a finger of ashy tan foam. The nose comprises cocoa powder, light roasted malts, mild coffee, light maple syrup, and light molasses. The taste brings in more of the same, along with more roast and a touch of ground clove. The body is a straight medium, with a nice nitrogenation and a subsequently silky feel. Overall, a nice oatmeal stout, one that drinks dangerously easily...

Trades the disaster of a beer in mexican cerveza for this. Nitrogen is awesome!.

A-dark black body with a coffee tan head that sticks around for a while. Why can't all stouts be nitrogen infused?

S- nice creamy coffee smell. I would drink this for breakfast

T-follows the nose. Creamy roasty smooth. Beautiful. Needs a little bit more body though.. that's my only knock on it.


M-medium body and so smooth

O- very impressed with this beer. If they could ad just a touch more to the body it would be all 5s
