3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. A fine, fine stout indeed: velvety foam, terrific smooth body and a delicate oat-ish character. One of my favorite stouts, good to drink at all times, even non-fans of the genre are impressed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ok. I really don’t remember rating this, but there it is - marked as Saturday, the note saved while I was at the Magic Beer Room, so that makes sense. Dark brown body, tan head. Nothing marked by a mixture of yeasty and chocolate notes, both in the taste and the aroma, and a marked "no". So, yeah, not impressed. Should rerate, perhaps.
