COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a nice, easy drinking, sessionable porter. Its a deep brown color with dark, ruby highlights. The oats add a nice complexity to the chocolatey character.

Draft. Poured ruby brown with a small tan head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma and flavor. Also roasted malt, a hint of fruit. Easy drinking and tasty. Low bitterness, moderate sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel but also, oddly, slightly thin.

Tap. Pours dark brown with thin, fizzy off-white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is oatmeal, toasted malt, figs, dates, faint earthy hops, and milk chocolate. Flavor is bland milk chocolate with sweet malt and dark fruit; dry finish. Medium body, low carbonation, and low warmth.

6/6/11. First to rate! On tap. Opaque black pour with brown edges under a tan head that fades fast. Distinct but light roast aroma with a touch of chocolate that reminds of an Irish nitro stout. Light chocolate flavor with a bit of lingering roast. Thin mouthfeel, a bit easy drinking.
