Dark ruby, almost opaque color, steady brown head. Light toasted aroma has dark chocolate. Light-bodied. Toasted, coffeish, a bit ashy oatmeal stout with soft but weak palate. Must be stunner with right food.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro pour at the source. Creamy and full bodied, but not too heavy. Some light chocolate, a touch of coffee to the nose. Very dark pour with the cascading creamy nitro head. Some hoppy bitterness in there too. Solid oatmeal stout, and a good session brew.

On tap at Founders. Black with a light tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate, little bit of a caramel note too. Taste was primarily chocolate, very creamy and smooth. Beautiful lacing that covered the inside of the glass. This was very tasty for a low abv nitrogen dispensed beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Pours with a near black body and a lasting tan head that leaves great lace behind. Aromas are roasty, coffee, espresso. Coffee forward, but a bit of a dry and chalky note. Flinty. Flavors are of coffee, bready, nougat, nutty, and cereal grainy. Smooth, malty and bready. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Very dark but clear with some red. A thick light tan head survives to the bottom. Nice tan lacing. The nose is coffee with chocolate. But the next sniff is oatmeal. The flavor is really muted, nitro style. But a bit of cocoa peeks through. Good and the Guinness lovers will like it. But I want some un-muted.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours black with a moderate-sized nitro head. The head remains and leaves lots of dense lace. The nose has plenty of sweet, roasty malts, along with grain, earth and a hint of hops. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout with roasty elements, earth and hints of coffee and smoke. The finish is moderate in length with roasty malts. On the palate, it is full in body, with a creamy thick texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice moderately sweet roasty nitro oatmeal stout. The nitro inhibits the aroma a bit. 2011-08-16
