Tap@wkk. Black, guiness- lkke frothy head. Roasty, soft some milkyness on nose. Med light bodied, soft smooth. Bit weak, but always been a fan of guinness, and this is pretty close. Same sort of weak soft roasty, drinkability.

Keg at Draft House Hammersmith, as ’Founders Nitro Oatmeal Stout’. Served ultra-cold. Opaque black, small dense tan cap, full lacing. Aroma is light filter coffee, some metallic notes. Body is fairly light, soft carbonation. Taste is lactic and creamy, smooth malt, light coffee and ash. Some good features here. It’s essentially like a sweeter lactic version of Guinness. Very drinkable, but nothing special.
