Had on draft at the brew pub. A pretty basic stout that is easy on the palate. Overall, not too shabby.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Tap] Had this at an event and a couple of smokers were nearby, so Iíll do the best I can on this rating. The beer was the typical dark brown stout with a smallish brown head. The aroma was really simple with lots of roasted malts, moderate sweetness from the oats, coffee, and a little chocolate. This beer is really nothing remarkable in its uniqueness, but everything is just in fantastic balance. Chocolate, coffee, bittersweet roasted malts, everything you would expect. Fabulous stout. Wish I could find it everywhere.

Bottle at Andy and Maxís fantasy tasting - arouma is oatmeal and chocolate, roasty malts. This beer would be so good if it was a little younger, but this bottle has some oxidation on it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2010 Bottle (pre-batch numbers) Past its prime, unfortunately. Pretty thin but only slightly oxidized.Very dark black with just a bit of head. Semi sweet and pretty dry. Drinkable but really a shell of a beer. Iíll have to catch it on tap one of these days.
On tap. Still thin and dry with a slight acidic taste to it. Surprised about the body on this one, but the oatmeal treatment does seem apparent.
