Draft at the brewpub.

Pours clear dark brown, pretty light for the style, with a small tan head.

Aroma is roast, coffee, and anise. The anise and stronger coffee notes separate this from the porter.

Flavor is also roasted malt, coffee, and anise, with just a touch of chocolate. Pretty tasty, but not quite as full-flavored as I'd like for the style.

Medium body with a mouthfeel that falls a bit short of the mark. A little astringent without much oatmeal smoothness, despite the fact that oats were used.

Pretty drinkable still though. An above-average but not great stout overall.
