Sweet aroma, with strong oatmeal (surprising to smell) and roastiness. Pitch black in color with a tan head. A sweeter stout with a nice roast finish; quite smotth...as suggested.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Pizza Port San Clemente. Clear, deep cola pour. No lace really. Dark cherries and cola in the nose. Taste is richer macadamia nut and coconut oil with a slicker mouthfeel. Big silky oat character to the point of almost diacetyl but there is none in the nose. Very yummy, oily stout. 5.5% is hilarious. Not as clean as the Pier Rat Porter.

On tap at PP San Clemente. It pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is roasted coffee, mealy oats, and grains. The flavor is roasted and a bit cola like with some density on the palate, but without much substance. A little bit of coffee comes through in the finish.

On tap at The Monk. Pour is black with a small cream head. Lots of roasted notes on the nose with some additions of light chocolate and coffee. Sweet chocolate in the flavour, some moderate bitterness but nothing big or over the top. Not bad
