On tap at Portsmouth brewpub. Pours out a dark brown topped with a nice brown head. Aroma was nice with lots of sweet roast malts, chocolate, and a little smoke. Taste was more of the rich roast, coffee, pit fruit, and a little bitterness on the end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Goodgrief. Pour was typical for an oaty stout, perhaps a bit short on the head but good nonetheless. The aroma was chocolate syrupy, grains, and a touch of smoke. Flavor followed, the oats breaking up the sweet chocolate syrup, smoke firming it up, caramel, and molasses too. Not a bad brew, hard to get good oat stouts in bottles, so cheers, cheers! Thanks, Tom!

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2010 Dark, nice head, some lacing. Strong roasted aroma...smells like breakfast. Lots of roast, bitter, but pleasant. Lots of chewy oatmeal flavor. Amazingly smooth in the mouth. Really odd to have a beer so smooth, yet so bitter. Pretty good.
