3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Pearl Street. Really dark brown with a medium-brown frothy head that is fully lasting. Oak is the first thing I pick up in the aroma, beneath that some hazelnuts and earth - blindfolded, I’m not positive that I could have told you that this was a stout. Flavor is mildly sweet up front with a moderate roast and a dry cocoa powder finish. A solid stout, not sure what is up with the aroma. They need to use this as the base for their chocolate stout to make a really top-notch Billy Bonka.

I love how smooth and perfectly balanced this is. It takes full advantage of the local water source. A must have if you can get your hands on it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black pour with a tight tan head. The aroma is fairly cocoaish. Soft blackberry fruit and a soft oaty sweetness as well. Very rich and creamy palate. Its got a nice soft herbal chocolate flavour on the back. Pretty damn nice stuff.

Very easy drinking stout. I was impressed how great this beer tasted followed by a very smooth easy finish. Was lacking a little flavour and bitterness for a stout, but otherwise awesome! Highly recommend this beer even to non-stout fans

Very nice stout, it has an easy drinking taste for a stout. It is light for a typical stout. It is good that it is lighter because it is the brew pub,soy sauce,

Awesome Oatmeal Stout. If Pearl Street hadn’t sold me before, I was in at this point in the sampling.
