Deep are dark. Ballast point rarely disappoints. Great Stout with light flavor but missing a final chocolate touch. Tap

Pours dark black with white head. Tried it on nitro on tap at home brewerymart in San Diego. Looks great but looks can be deceiving. Very smooth, almost soft taste but something is way off. Not the best stout or oatmeal stout I had. Kind of disappointing actually.

Pours a deep brownish black on nitro tap wroth creamy tan brown head that leaves great lace. Aroma of big dark chocolate roast with hint of soy and oatmeal. Taste is all of that with the earth dropped off and bigger chocolate. Creamy smooth mouth from both the oatmeal and the nitro, very nice.

Chocolat au lait, petits fruits, pain grillé sur un confortable tapis malté bourré d’amidon moelleux. Belle finale douce amère et une sécheresse moyenne.

it was pretty nice, but below average for what they were pouring Monday. Perhaps a little too light and easy drinking to be great, though it’s roasted malt and coffee flavors are nice - if a bit on the mellow side."
