7/10/13 notes: Mellow, nutty, toasted notes emphasized. Not too much oats, a bit simple. As others have noted, the nitro might be washing things out. Light body for the abv.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nitro tap at PPC. Thick and creamy nitro head atop clear brown. Nose is muted lemon. Taste brings malted milk balls, although overall bland. Thicker body, no bitterness. Mild spice and dairy....thick and creamy. Perfect 360 lacing but on nitro. Not much going on here as with the other stouts on tap today.

Beautiful cascading nitro pour. Black beer with a thick khaki head. Roasted malt, licorice, coffee, and cocoa powder. Some hints of dark fruit and earthy hops. Somewhat bitter flavor of roasted malt, cocoa powder, and coffee. Lightly sweet from licorice and dark fruit. Earthy hop finish.

Nitro draft at PP Carlsbad. Very dark brown, near black, with a tan nitro head. Smooth milk chocolate, oat creaminess, mild roast, notes of coffee, and light hop bitterness. Nothing special really, but this is decent. The nitro mutes out the flavors though.
