an offering 16 times the size of a danish pour. rich and thick, pretty roasty for a sweet stout. The nitro is strong and gives it that great european head. Ashy finish, a full bodied beer for lowish ABV

Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. roasted malts, coffee, medium sweetness, and faint vanilla. Good, not great.

On tap at the source. Comes to the table a solid black with a small tan head that seems perpetual. Smells of caramel coffee and a hint of chocolate. Little if any hop is present in the aroma. The flavor is roasty with coffee and burnt sugar with just a hint of chocolate and a light fruity tartness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick sweet mouthfeel. Good stout, but lacking something that I can’t quite put my finger on. Needs a bit more creaminess in the mouthfeel for an oatmeal stout too.

BVery (5935) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. Deep cola pour with a frothy head. Roast oat aroma. Taste is a bit lower on character than the aroma. Not bad.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2012
On draught at the restaurant, served on nitro. Pours dark brown, opaque, with a creamy 2-finger head with nice retention. Aromas of caramel, toffee, maybe some cherry. The flavor is roasty chocolate and light coffee, sweet initially, moving to a lightly bitter finish with flaked oatmeal. Creamy and smooth. This is pretty nice. [1031]

Waterbury (37) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pours black with a medium cream head. Moderate body, nutty and malt with heavy oatmeal and a bit of alcohol. Short and dry finish. Guiness like

AirForceHops (2939) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Draft. Typical color. Ok , thin tan head. Light spider web lace. Nose is mostly roasted malt, light coffee. Body is very light. Easy going simple, striaght forward stout. The brewers example of a dry stout. no flaws. Decent. Sweet stout??? I don’t get sweetness much at all.

jkwood04 (3744) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2012
On tap in a shaker. Pours black with a small, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some light oatmeal and dark chocolate notes, and floral hops. Flavor the same, and there could be more oatmeal to it. Smooth texture. A decent beer.

kidmartinek (3507) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Dark black. 1+ inch head easy. Lasts as long as you need it to. Heavy lacing. Boxy, woody, caramel malt aroma. Caramel and roasted malt flavor. Nice hoppy finish. A satisfying stout to finish.
