Tap @ Free State. Dark brown color pour. Aroma of roast, distant coffee, some molasses. Very complex flavor. Not what I expected. Roast, bread, coffee, woody hops. Nice bitter finish. Very good. Lots of hop character in the finish. Woody.

Had on tap at the brewpub while visiting the university. Smooth and creamy, but not deep, complex, or roasty enough. Has a smokey-bacon type flavor... on purpose? Doubtful.

Growler from Kerrianne our wayword son, the Lawrence drug mule, with many thanks. Superb traditional oatmeal stout nose with lots of chocolate and oats. Taste is very smooth with almost no viscosity. Great back-end taste profile. I can feel my cholesterol going down as I type.

Black pour with brown tint, tan head with beautiful lacing. Aroma is the norm of roasted malts of coffee, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor starts sweet, finishes bitter. Unfortunately, this had a metallic aftertaste but at least it didn’t linger...velvety and smooth otherwise.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Free State during the 20th anniversary. Pours a very very deep brown, almost black body with a good looking, full and fluffy, tan head that dissipates very slowly and remains nicely laced. Soft, but solid aroma. Some light smokiness, swift roasts, sweet caramel malts, and some creamy light chocolate hints. Flavor is very soft and delicate as well. Good amount of sweet coffee roasts as well as a subtle smokiness. Light milk chocolate and a bit of astringent citrus in the end. Slightly chocolate, smokey, light bitter aftertaste that lingers for a good amount of time. Palate is very smooth thanks to the oats and medium bodied. Overall, a really nice oatmeal stout. Full of flavor and gets better as it warms. Nice body and aftertaste. Really glad I came to this brewpub.
