Dark, British-styled ale noted for malt flavors reminiscent of dark chocolate. Rich and delicious.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a black colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is toasty and roasty with some licorice and dark fruits. Richer and medium sweet dark chocolates with a light caramel and some grassy hops alongside the roasts. Flavor is similar. Roasts, toast, and some chocolate up front with a caramel sweetness, dark fruits, and a light licorice spice. A nice grassy hopping comes in again alongside the roasts as this finishes clean, dry, roasty, lightly bitter, and balanced with a nice caramel and chocolate sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid oatmeal stout. Just enough of a smooth sweetness balanced well with a nice roasty, grassy bitterness. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

~ 5 oz sample glass at the Rock Bottom in downtown Chicago. The pour is a brown light copper with a smallish off white head. The aroma is toasted lightly sweet malt, along with a hint of grassy hops. The flavor follows the nose, nice firm malt sweet backbone, with a light drying hop finish. The palate is medium bodied, nice active carbonation and a clean dry finish. Of my 4 samples, this was the easiest drinking, but it also lacked a bit of a defining character. This is probably an example of a beer that a sample likely doesn’t give a true sense of the beer.
