Pours an extremely dark brown with a tan head, looks pretty good. Smells of roasty malts, bitter chocolate and coffee pretty good but a little restrained. Taste follows the nose, it seems like it could be better again feels a bit restrained. The palate isnít what I expected, itís a little thin and watery, they really need to make this thicker, all in all itís decent, but go with the imperial stout, they really went all out on that one.

Sample at the brewpub on 7/23/11. Darkest brown pour with a thick tan head. Roasty aroma to the point of char with some light chocolate notes as well. Roasted malt flavor with chocolate and a burnt coffee finish.

On tap at the brewpub...thin, watery black beer. The only hints of hints of coffee and chocolate were in the description. Not good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty average stuff. It had the typical dark brown stout color with a tan head. The aroma was a slight roasted malts with a little bit of coffee. It had an average weight palate that was a little creamy from the oatmeal. The carbonation was a little low as this was the nitro version. Decent roasted malt flavor with a slight hop bitterness. Easy to drink but not unique.

Iím not usually an oatmeal stout fan, but this is really good on nitro. It has a smooth finish.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pint at the brewpub. Another thin, sudsy head. Nice smoky aroma on this one makes me want to dive in. The beer delivers a robust, roasty, fireside flavor with a fun bitter finish. Only downside on this is that itís a bit on the thin side. (#3821, 1/26/2010)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a thick, foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted, smoked, and charred malt with some parmesean cheese. Flavor of chalky bitter chocolate and a weak malt base. A decent stout but nothing special.
