Draft. Poured ruby brown with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma and flavor were lots of roasted malt, light chocolate and coffee, earthy hops. Medium mouthfeel. Nicely done. One of the better beers sampled in one evening at Church Brew.

Tap at CBW, a dark stout, with a lighter body.. sweeter roast than traditional which makes perfect sense, was told this was their oatmeal stout by the server.

this poured a medium to dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of milk chocolate, some graininess, herbal hops and medium roasted malts. Flavor was nice roast character, a little earthy, not overly bitter or too sweet, very well rounded and a nice simple stout.

Very light mouthfeel. Great minty aroma and heavy mint taste. Lighter on chocolate than I would have liked.
