Has a nice balanced roasty flavor. A bit earthy with a clean finish. Not thin, but a bit lighter than some of this style I’ve had. Very sessionable.

A nice find on tap at the Greenhouse Grille in Fayetteville, AR. Dark appearance with a thick, creamy, tan head (though not much of one). Sweeter than most and a bit on the watery side. Thanks to Anthony for the suggestion.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Flying Saucer in Little Rock, AR for Stout Day 2012. Pours a black body with a thin, creamy, brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is richer, smooth dark chocolates with some roasts and a good amount of earthy hops. Light oat notes with a touch of caramel. Flavor is similar. Smooth, richer chocolates throughout with a nice oaty feel. A balanced roast and a good amount of earth as this finishes clean, dry, and lightly bitter. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid oatmeal stout. Smooth, clean, and balanced with a solid flavor. Glad I got to try something from this new brewery while I was in Little Rock.
