Sample at the brewpub. Pours pitch black with a wispy tan head and thin spotty lacing. Pleasant aroma of coffee and malt. Smooth and rich mouthfeel with toasted malt, coffee and chocolate flavors. The finish is bittersweet chocolate with a lingering touch of hops afterward. Solid all around.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black ale that turns out to be cola-colored when held up to bright light. Small, very creamy, khaki head. Good retention with stratus lacing. Malty and toasty nose... vanilla, cocoa and nuts. The flavor is perfectly balanced with tangy hops and other wonderful, roasted flavors, molasses and chocolate. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, pleasantly bitter, lightly burnt finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Coles in Buffalo listed as Blast Furnace Oatmeal Stout. Black body with a small off white head. Muted roasty malt aroma, flavour is likewise. Mild roast in the flavour with very small touches of dark chocolate and lingering roast in the aftertaste. Average to medium palate. (3+) Bit simplistic but pleasant enough.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Cole’s, Buffalo NY. Pours a dark reddish-black with a spare off-white head. Mild aroma of oil and roasted malt -- it smells nice but it’s a little odd for a Stout. Flavour of roasted malt, chocolate, oatmeal and a touch of hops. Medium bodied. Pretty good, I’d gladly have it again.
