On tap at the Union Square location. Pretty decent stout but what makes this an "oatmeal" stout not just a stout? I don’t taste much of a unique oat taste. Chocolaty, dry and malty toasted flavors. Full bodied.

Keg Pint at Heartland, Empire State Building, New York in March 2013 - Opaque Black. Very malty; roasty malts, oaty, lots of coffee and dark chocolate, caramel, hints of liquorice and nuts, some smoke. Creamy and smooth; well balanced. Sweet roast malty throughout developing a dry roast bitterness at the finish. Liked this a lot. Nice Sweet Stout!

Ed5388 (1727) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2014
5oz sampler from the brewpub NYC. Pours a dark brown/almost black color with ruby red highlights, and a thick creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, vanilla, wood, and dark chocolate. Taste of cheap roasted coffee, vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate, and slightly boozy. Mouthfeel was kind of flat.

Slipstream (1932) - USA - DEC 14, 2013
On tap at Heartland Union Square. A lightly sweet stout, with a little roasty/ burnt toast flavor and sugar. The menu said it was an award winner. I wonder what award it won - the average award?

Mörkbrun med litet ljust skum! Inte mycket doft men lite kaffe! Smakar kaffe och choklad! Ingen kolsyra och väldigt len smak!

jflopsu (439) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Pours a dark black with light brown head. Has a caramel, coffee, and chocolate aroma. Taste is similar to a (good) Guinness with chocolate and coffee. Has a rich and thick texture.

Tricker (260) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2013
Bière de 6 % d’alcool. Elle possède un col laiteux ainsi qu’une mousse très épaisse. Elle est limite d’être une bière noire, elle a une ressemblance avec un Guinness. Elle possède un goût de chocolat et de café, de type expresso et/ou capuccino. Elle possède une légère amertume en finale. Elle possède un goût de caramel restant en bouche. Succulente !

Good coffee and dark chocolate aromas. Dark with hue of caramel against direct light, good head good lace. Medium to full body, malty and sweet, with hints of dark chocolate beans. Nothing extraordinary. Just a good stout.
