A - Pours a dark black with a big thick covering of creamy brownish head. The head hangs around for quite a while leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of deep roasted chocolate malts and a bit of sweetness and oats mixed in as well.
T - Starts off with some light roasted chocolate malt and a bit of sweetness and oat flavor. Through the middle a bit more sweet milk and oats come through. The finish is a mix of roasted and sweet chocolates that linger.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer feels smooth and very creamy. The beer has an very nice texture from the oats and nitro serving.
D - Very drinkable and smooth and creamy. Nice roasted flavors and sort of light but not empty at all.

Draught at the brewpub. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Smooth coffee and oat aroma. The flavor is smooth and has a robust oat mouthfeel that balances a nice mellow dark roast coffee bitterness. Lightly sweet and robust for a regular strength stout. Very tasty.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Apparently black color, attractive nitro head appearance. Aroma is earthy roasted malts, cofee, but sharply acidic spent grounds in character. Balanced malts, very earthy once again - a little much. Some smokiness is present. Thin, papery acidic finish. Not my thing.
