On tap at Eccentric Cafe. Served in a 16oz imperial-like pint glass. Pour was completely black, head was white but not very substantial. Smells like oats and vanilla but very faint. Medium mouth feel with relatively low carbonation, and a bit tangy. Bitter oat-y taste with some malt and vanilla mixed in. Pretty low-key, nothing outstanding but solid and good. Finish is all vanilla.

Pours a deep dark brown with a nice tan head. Chocolate/espresso aromas. Tastes just like it smells, deep coffee and chocolate flavors.

Bellís rocks, and so does this beer that seems kind of intimidating to those who donít typically drink stouts. Itís timid yet full of flavor. Iíd drink it again and again.

Very smoky scent and taste. Heavy and thick, like a fat black female NYC cab driver thatís smoking with window barely cracked. Perfumed to mask the smoke but not working. Like the style, but shocked that this is an oatmeal. Was thinking it would have a touch more sugar and less bitter. Still enjoyed, and think that Bells needs a better name on this baby. Maybe ABW Smoky. Tap

Draft pour at the source. Pours a darker brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has that sweet oath, toasty taste I love in oatmeal stouts. Moderately sweet, but toasty. Medium body, velvety mouthfeel, and moderate carbonation..

On Draught
Pours basically black with a decent head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is roasty & chocolaty. Itís got some caramel and some light sweetness. Clean, inviting, and rich all around.

The flavor is rich & roasty with a nice mild sweetness. The bitterness is moderate and well employed giving a sensation of dark chocolate and coffee.

Just sort of real stouty. Simple and enjoyable.

Tap @ Bells: Deep, rich black color, almost oily with a foamy film that builds up on top with a nice chunky collar laced around the edges. Creamy oat forward aroma, light milk & cream sweetness with soft cocoa nibs, bakerís chocolate, & hints of caramel-like sweetness. Flavor contains a bit more roast & even some light coffee bean, although the presence of semi-sweet, creamy oats is still very much the front runner. Milk chocolate & oats play well with a leafy & lightly earthy hop profile. Finished with notes of chocolate covered burnt grains. A nice & easy drinking stout.

Mmm stouty! I got this at a tap takeover because I had never heard of it before... Itís great, one of those stouts that has that stouty creamy attitude but still manages to be somewhat refreshing.
