3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the San Antonio Saucer. Poured a near opaque body topped with 1-inch of creamy, off-white head that left lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is roasty, fresh coffee, light sweetness and some milk chocolate. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate, day-old coffee and lightly sweet. Very fine carbonation with a full mouthfeel. Short (coffee) bitter finish thatís slightly earthy. Better than expected.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On nitro at the Kalamath brewpub in Denver. Pours a cascading, deep brown body that ends up black and leaves a finger-width, very creamy, brown head that takes fovever to dissipate and leaves lots of lacing. The nitro takes a bit away from the aroma, but not as much as most. Rich chocolates, caramel, and a soft, sweet roast. Flavor is more enhanced with a nice, sweet, creamy roast. Some very rich chocolates and cream, caramel, and a hint of hops as well. Finishes very smooth, somewhat dry, and roasty with plenty of chocolate. Lengthy aftertaste of sweet cocoa and roast. Full, smooth, creamy body. Overall, a nice stout. One of the better nitro pours out there. It would probably be better without it, but it remained aromatic and flavorful. Glad to have had at the brewpub.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro tap at the Saucer SA. Dark black pour with a creamy milky head. Has an interesting aroma; pipe tobacco, cough syrup, and attic dust. VERY creamy mouthfeel. Cough syrup flavors remain, but introduces rich coffee bean, bitter malts and dryness. The finish is actually pretty gentle. If only the syrup flavors would dissipate, this would be rockin.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Breckenridge Ball Park Brew Pub in Denver. The beer is an opaque dark brownish-black color with a medium thick and creamy tan head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Doughy malt, chocolate and roasted notes in the nose. Medium, smooth body with flavors of sweet roasted malt, chocolate and mild coffee. The finish is short and roasty with a touch of coffee on the back end. Slightly above average overall.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a very dark brown almost black with a large frothy tan head that lasts awhile leaving good sticky lacing. The aroma is a sweet roasted malt with chocolate and caramel.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap at Breckenridge brewpub in Denver - Pours very dark brown with a big tan head that laces heavily. It has a rich aroma of chocolate, coffee, and dark roast malt. The flavor is big on the coffee and dark roast malt with the bitter roast and maybe some hops lingering in the finish. Itís full bodied and quite good. Itís interesting how widely the ratings vary here and makes me wonder if the quality of some batches was lacking. This one is excellent though.

Bartender indicated this was the oatmeal stout on nitro. A dark stout with a thick resilient moka head. Aroma is more subdued than the OS, doughy and pleasant. In mouth, a silky stout, very sustained chocolate bitterness, yet balanced. Medium bodied. On tap at Ballpark brewpub 24 Jan. 2009.
