Had a pitcher of this on-tap for $10. After having the mediocre-at-best Pale Ale, I figured this would at least be better... and it was. Roasted coffee and chocolate flavors, along with a slight "twang" on the finish. Not of the highest quality, but it was still a pretty tasty, relatively thick stout. The highlight of the beer was probably the color and head -- the smell was also very pleasant. The taste, while having a thick mouthfeel with a good amount of coffee and chocolate flavors, wasn't as "popping" as the majority of ones that I have had. Pretty forgettable, but much better than the pale ale and cream ale.

Technically this is an oatmeal stout. It tastes "fine" in the same way that cheap beers taste fine. I had this beer as part of a sampler and it was perhaps my favorite of the batch but that is not praise. At least with this one it seemed close to the style.
