Black pour with a good tan head. Aroma is heavily espresso dominated. Flavor follows suit. Great coffee flavor, but too one-dimensional and dry. Not sweet enough for an oatmeal stout and little, if any noteable oatmeal flavor.

Not quite black. A ton of foam. Silky body just like your mom. Rich and fluffy. Toasty and some cocoa notes. Not bad. Had this on tap at Heartland Brewery in Times Square

Nitro tap! 3/4" beautiful solid cream head, surface is perfectly smooth. Opaque black. Gentle black licorice with slight chocolate aroma. Thick and creamy mouthfeel with light dark chocolate taste. Seems like a mismatch of flavor and density, makes for a session able stout...but not so much at 6%.

Draft at the brewery in New York City pour is a black color r with a very creamy tan head with excellent lacing. Nice roast the aroma of coffee and chocolate. Creamy mouth feel but a little bit flat somewhat of a sour taste but very nice and Roasty

Definitely a good stout. Tried it over the summer at the Flatiron location, then tried it again at the 8th ave 42nd street location. Wasn’t as good as I remembered but not a regret to try again. Poured from tap with little head, though it did settle from brown to black as expected. A good consideration is that it stays consistent from beginning to end.

Growler from wifey. Poured a flat body dark chocolate brown. Aroma/flavor is nice and buttery, ugh. Additional notes of oak, melted chocolate, burnt grains. Body is slick and full. Meh not too good.

Slightly sweet roasted malt aroma with oatmeal. Taste is same. Very smooth, full flavored and a nice beer. Bitter finish. Worth drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very sweet and milky stout with a chocolate body and thick head. The flavor is straightforward but very well put together. A great example of a sweet stout.
