Deep mahogany with almost no head. The aroma has an interesting mixture of chocolate covered raisin, licorice, and bubblegum. It has a medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. The taste is sweet up front with a more roasted finish.

On draught at Bailey’s Taproom. 2010 vintage. A deep, oxidized aroma. Hints of dark chocolate, oats, and almost a barrel aging. Well worth the try.

Great. Pours with carpet lacing, black with some clear ruby tinges. Aroma of booze, cereal, sugar and creamy consistency. Leave is sour and a little bitter. Good for oatmeal stout. Tap at Hopcat.

Nitro draft at Khyber Pass. Pitch black pour with a huge creamy tan head. Not much aroma due to large head. Tastes like an uber-dark chocolate malted milk shake. Creamy and sweet up front then switches to a lingering finish of nice bitter burnt barrel notes. Creamy mouthfeel, assisted by the nitro. Pleasant dark earthy flavors as well.

Tap at Jacobs Pickles UWS.. Pour is a muddy brown with thick root beer float head. Aroma is sweet oats, oak, chocolate. Taste is coffee, sweet chocolate, oak, vanilla. Thin body with velvety texture. Not at all what I was expecting from an oak aged oatmeal but interesting in a very unique way.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On nitro tap. Pours a dark brown, almost black permitting very little light through. Caramel nitro head as expected, about a finger high. Underlying oatmeal stout is apparent with notes of chocolate and nut above. Palate wasn’t excellent, I was expecting slightly better. Solid choice, excellent on nitro.

Nitro draft at Hopcat. Black with typical nitro head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter cocoa, slight oak. Flavor follows suit and offers a slight smokey, burnt aspect to the billing. Basic and simple, yes. Enjoyable, absolutely.
