3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transferred from old tasting notes. Tasted on tap at brewpub, Nashville, Tennessee, USA in standard pint glass. Poured an opaque, very dark brown, almost black color with creamy, full, beige head with good retention and even a little lace. Flavors and aromas characteristic of a good oatmeal stoat: malty, bready, caramelly, toasty, roasty, with balanced bitterness and hints of coffee, chocolate and dried dark fruit. Very good.

Backlog from 12/09. Tap. Aroma all about chocolate with touches of dark grain. Flavor remains all about the chocolate, lightly milky but still plenty of cacao goodness. Straightforward but very tasty.

Had this at the Beer Seller. Decent stout, but pretty forgettable. Worth a try but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark almost black pour with an off white head that stays forever. A toasted malt flavor. A nice taste that starts sweet and goes dry qucikly. A light bitter finish.A decent mouthfeel but just a tad watery with very good carbonatioin that makes for a smooth palate. Not a bad brewpub beer.

On cask at the brewpub; pint glass. Poured with a medium fluffy ecru head that lent a creamy texture to the body, mostly lasting. Lacing was meager, "racing" was too. This would make a pleasant session stout because of its simplicity; that same simplicity keeps it from impressing me that much. Dark brown/black in the glass with a bit of light shining through. Aroma of bread dough and a hint of molasses and faint overall. Sweetness of powdered sugar and cake balanced by the oatmeal mustiness, which was more of a counterpoint than a feature (which, personally, I didn’t mind, as I don’t like a dominant oatmeal flavor in my beers). The roasted malts are very understated and, along with a very slight caramel undertone, only serve to round out the straight-forward milk-chocolate base flavor. Smooth and creamy; medium bodied. This is a stout that women would like.
