On tap @ the Chophouse. First off another horrible pour by the bartender. Black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted grains, chocolate and a smoke. Bittersweet chocolate flavor. Creamy mouth feel but thin on the finish. Decent beer.

Location: Tap at the Brew Pub , 8/7/09
I liked this one a bit more then the Bourbon version. I found the Oatmeal to be lacking (hardly detectable) mostly, I just got roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee. Anyway, it was a touch thin, and a not overwhelmingly good, but a nice stout, my second favorite beer of the visit (losing by a nose to the Brown).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Black with a creamy tan head that leaves some lace. Coffee, roast, and lightly sweet dark chocolate aroma. The flavor has a light roasty edge, low bitterness, low hops, and just a light sweetness. Smooth due to the good carbonation level, and probably the oats, but too thin for a 6.2% oatmeal stout. Balanced and smooth, but lacking and great or interesting flavors. The best of the bunch overall, though not as great for the style as the light lager.
