3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub; 4.7% ABV
Black color, brown head. Very smooth, a bit creamy, with a mix of roasted malt and dark chocolate, but the nitro is a killer and it doesn’t express itself fully.

3.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(on cask) slight sulphur bitter in the nose, behind the roast & coffee notes. Mild bitter roast that dances above all before being pulled down & drowned by the frey between coffee and chocolate.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Jet black with a tan head, looks delicious. And the aroma roasted grain, chocolate, coffee, and licorice. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel, perfect amount of bittering hops, this could possibly be one on the best oatmeal stouts Ive had to date.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Government Camp, Or - on tap at the brewpub. Dark brown leading to black pour with a thick mocha colored head. Aroma has a nice chocolate essence to it with some coffee back end notes. Flavor mimics the aroma with some licorice added in for good measure to accentuate the coffee and chocolate and sweeten it up a bit. Thick, oily mouthfeel. My pick of the sample to enjoy a pint of .
