On tap at the brewpub.
Near black body with a decent head.
Medium-full body and light soft carbonation which, with the smoothness from the oats, makes this feel like a cask ale.

Tastes more like a dry Irish stout. Nice but not to style.

Nitro-tap at District ChopHouse & Brewery, Washington, DC

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a finger high light beige head that has good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dry, roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: Much like the smell, the taste has flavors of roasted malts. No bitterness is perceptible, but there are enough underlying hops to mask away any sweetness from being perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little airy and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There are slight amounts of dryness.
O: This beer is easy to drink because it feels a little lighter in body compared to other beers in the style.

A: Dark brown body with a two finger, beige head. Good lacing.

S: Oatmeal and roast. A little less bitterness than is typical for the style.

T: I really don't get a ton of flavor at the start of the sip. Then roastiness and oatmeal creep in, and is joined by baker's chocolate at the end. The aftertaste lingers for quite awhile - coffee and bitter chocolate.

M: Full and creamy, though a little too much carbonation.

O: Big, enjoyable flavors. Not overly complex, but certainly enjoyable.

The food is great.

Poured on tap into a shaker pint glass.

A real soupy frothy cocoa brown head on this beer, milky looking too. It sits on a simple dark walnut black/brown body. Really like that head color.

Smell is a faint on almost everything except one thing. Faint milk chocolate, no roast character, but a distinct smell of milky cream that predominates.

Taste brings a little more than the nose. Mild malt and milk choclate, some small tobacco on the finish of cigarettes mostly, but a big distinct milky taste in the palate. Very creamy in feel and in taste in the palate.

It's overall pretty good but kind of light, and a heavy emphasis on this cream texture and in taste also. I was hoping for some more flavor but otherwise it's a good solid beer and easy drinking also.
