3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... Pour midnight black with a small, fizzy, tan head. The aroma is roasty and incredibly chocolaty. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor is roasty and singed with a generous unsweetened cocoa component. Crisp, watery finish with a hint of acrid cardboard. Resembles a dry stout more-so than an oatmeal stout, but the mouthfeel is a hint creamy without the support of nitrogen.

Draft at the brewery. Nose is full if chocolate and coffee. Pours a pitch black with light brown head. Taste is dark chocolate with coffee and some silkiness. Finishes dry and a touch watery. Some graininess in the malt flavor. Pretty nice but a touch thin.

Almost black in color. No muddy taste at all compared to darkstar. Smooth. It has a lip smack taste. Would order again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. Dark beer with some cola shades at the edge of the glass. Beige ring for a head. Light roasted grain, puffed cereal and chocolate in the nose. Soft mouthfeel like I expect from an oatmeal stout. Flavors of milk chocolate, some lactic sense, roasted grain astringency and a bitter grassy finish. Nice beer.
