Tap at Rogue Bar SF. Pours a sexy black with a tanned head. The aromas showcase a complex blend of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and alcohol. Oats become more evident in the taste. Like your morning porridge in coffee and chocolate. Pretty good stuff.

650ml bottle. Looks really nice, huge tan head, black body. Aroma is not strong. Tastes like an oatmeal stout, dark malt, little roasty, Cascade hops make it a little tangy. Overall, it was a nice beer, but not what I look for in a stout. Good, but I don't get the hype around it.

500ml. Pours a nice dark black with a three inch dark tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, smoke, oat, coffee, some fruit and some hops. Similar malt forward aroma. Has a solid body with a dry and bitter finish. Very easy to drink, enjoyable and a solid beer all around. A beer well worth having again, especially at its price point ($6 in my area).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
$5.99 for the 650mL bottle purchased from town. To oversized brandy snifter, it pours a turgid syrupy black with a thin, sudsy beige head 1 fingernail in length, Aromas of oatmeal, candied sugar, sugarplums, charcoal, sesame seeds, and booze. Tastes the same with the addition of English yeast, American hops, marsh rosemary, ginger, and dark chocolate by swallow. Thin, smooth, and warming. Can’t believe I haven’t ever tried this.
