Sample pour of deep murky with deep khaki head. Nose is sweet malt and bitter malt, dirty... Not fantastic. Flavor is similar, oats, rich malt, slight alcohol... Not amazing...

Howler from Growler Country. Pours dark brown with a tan head of tiny bubbles like a dry stout. Light aroma of sweeter malt, a little roasted oats and maybe milk chocolate. More roasted malt in the flavor. Finishes with bitter baking chocolate. Fine.

Poured a black color with aromas of oats, light roast, and a touch of malt. Flavors were the same but had some off flavors, not overly enjoyable for a stout.

On draught at Oldsmar Tap House. Brownish-black pour with a medium thin tan head that diminishes steadily to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, dark chocolate and slight hops. The finish is roasty with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
