Thanks to Bob, Michelle, and mostly my baby Jana for the 12th annual Indiana Microbrewers Festival today! On tap @ the fest. Nose of coffee, vanilla, oats, and flowers. The beer is black. The fully lasting brown creamy head leaves good lace. The brew is very well balanced, and has moderate acidity. The long finish is of espresso. The full soft body is creamy and the finish feels dry. Lafayette was definitely the biggest surprise today! I made a new friend.

Had this one on draught as part of a sampler at the brewpub in Lafayette, Indiana. Opaque dark brown pour with a coffee and soy sauce nose, very sweet chocolate and bitter coffee balanced out into an outstanding oatmeal stout.

mmmm...the perfect end to my meal at the brewpub. first sip revealed a definate chocolate and coffee taste. almost like capuccino. smooth and silky for sure. not too sweet like some sweet stouts though. just the right balance. later, i also noted some molases and a bit of an anise taste as well.

From a growler. Just about opaque black with a small frothy tan head. Coffee and chocolate evident in the aroma, a touch of oatmeal and caramel. Medium bodied, low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. The flavor was malty mocha with a hint of oats. Pretty good stout.

Draught during my Great Lakes area brew tour. Black pour with some ruby, small white head. The nose is of oats and chocolate. The oats are definitely in the flavor, but not as strong as other stouts of this style. The chocolate character is well rounded and appropriately sweet. A bit of bitterness is noticeable in the form of elusive, piny hops. The finish is dusty but mainly sweet like milk chocolate. The mouthfeel was reasonably silky with a fairly low level of carbonation. Had this for breakfast on a Thursday. What a great way to start the day!

Block (1432) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Sampled at the restaurant. Really nice dark black color with almost no head (most likely because I had the sampler and they were poured early). Light aroma with stronger coffee and roasted malt flavor.

Growler thanks to Bobby91w. Very, very, nice, although maybe more of an oatmeal porter than stout, like CharlesDarwin said. Pours a nice brown with a red hue. Nice aroma: oats, cinnamon, cookie dough, and chocolate. Flavor is much the same, tastes a bit like an oatmeal cookie with hints of roasted barley and maybe even a touch of coffee. Nice local brew that I was glad I got to try.

It does go down "silky" as the description says. Milk chocolate, candy, syrup, oat flavors. Some roasted and smoke notes as well? In the middle malted milk, and milk duds. Really good long finish. Super thin and watery, which adds to the ease of drink.
