On tap at Barley Brothers, Winnipeg. Compared this back to back with the Russell Porter, and they both had similar roast elements to them. Black body obviously. The palate was a bit thicker and nicer on this one. Overall a decent stout.

TheRyatolla (6) - CANADA - JAN 4, 2013 does not count
Nice aroma coffee and chocolate, Black as coal with cappuccino head. Tastes nice with a medium finish but not long on finish or very robust. All in all a good stout if your not looking for a meal in a glass.

brokensail (13757) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Black in color with a creamy khaki head. The nose is heavy on the roasted malt and coffee. There’s a touch of toasted bread, some cocoa, and maybe a little bit of ash. The flavor is a bit on the watery side. A fair amount of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate, though. Not as rich and creamy as most oatmeal stouts. A bit of ash and soy sauce.

gramity (1581) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2012
Black pour with a large beige head, left chunks of lacing as I drank. Aroma is slightly acidic and roasty, with coffee roastiness coming through. Tastes quite nice, with a smooth chocolate roastiness. Not much char present. The oats make an appearance and more of a light acidicness. Has a moderate feel to it, and no alcohol heat. Very easy drinking as stouts go.
