Had this on tap at Brown's. It pours nice and dark with a small off-white head. There is a good roasted aroma with a bit of sweetness. The taste is really good. It has the classic oatmeal smoothness and a good amount of sweetness and roasted malt too. The slight disappointment is in the mouthfeel. It is a bit thinner than i would like. The drinkability is high though.

12oz bottle with no bottle code poured into a pint glass. Paid $8.99 for a six pack.

Appearance - Black body with a creamy light brown head. Okay retention with no lacing. Recedes to a quarter inch cap and holds. I've had this on tap many times and this is how it has looked, although there is usually less retention.

Smell - Silky smooth milk chocolate. Nice sweetness provided by the oats. Subtle dark fruits and a smoky backbone.

Taste - Woody smoke hits the tongue hard with some very light rasted malt. The chocolate and dark fruit are present and help balance out a bit of the smoke. Sweet finish with some light smoke lingering.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and supremely smooth. Moderate carbonation. One of the highlights of this beer.

Drinkability - This beer drinks very nicely. The unique flavors of woody campfire smoke mesh well with the sweetness. Everything is brought together by a great smooth light body. I've had this with some heavily smoked BBQ before and it is sublime. Damn good. One of my two favorite oatmeal stouts alongside Ipswich.

Had on tap at Dinosaur BBQ Albany

Appearance: dark brown in color, minimal head, clear

Smell: sweet nut and toasted malt

Taste: sweet nuts and oats, toasted malt, and a touch of maple

Mouthfeel: sweet, medium light bodied, low carbonation

Drinkability: A nice, sweet, sessionable oatmeal stout. A nice representation of the style.
