Draft at Would of Beer. Pours dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Taste is smooth and creamy, light chocolate, light coffee, bready and slightly sweet. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like bitter coffee, sweet syrup, and semisweet cocoa.

10oz on tap at Neonís. Pours black in color. Light brown head. Just a bit of it, but itís a nice color. Decent splotches of lace. Kind of loose. Medium body. Smooth, kind of velvety, creamy texture. Lightly chewy. Light carbonation. Nice milk chocolate, oats, moderate sweet taste. Very light bitterness. Good oatmeal stout. Nothing crazy about it, but itís a well-done, smooth example of the style.

On nitro at Tap 25. It pours a deep brown with red highlights. Light tan colored thick head. The aroma is nicely roasted with some coffee and hints of chocolate. The flavor is cocoa, coffee and roasted malt. Dirty, roasted finish that borderlines on ashy. I expected more of a coffee flavor, but it was still pretty decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had this at Ballast Point in Little Italy.
The beer is dark brown, nearing black, with a thin beige collar. Aromas of chocolate, dark malt, grains, bread. Some dark fruit and raisin notes in the flavor. Really smooth on the palate due to the serving medium. Well balanced and easy to drink. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I do enjoy a fine dry stout and this oneís a class act. Perfect in terms of appearance: pitch black with deep ruby red highlights, and a super thick cappuccino-like head. Nutty, sweet, burnt toast aroma. Flavors were similar, lots of nutty sweet malts and burnt toast, along with a slight smokiness. I wanted a bit more punch from the flavor department. Mouthfeel was light and easy, donít want to quite say íthiní. Had this one on nitro at the brewery (5%abv).

Spoiled this was on a nitro tap. Beautiful brown with a solid chocolate milk brown head, solid other then two tiny bubbles. Nice smells of chocolate and nut. First sip is all cream roasted bitter coffee with a cream head undertone.
