3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a black color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma was toasty malts, vanilla and merlot. The flavor was butter, dry and bitter with a tangy merlot presence and hints of coffee and chocolate. The finish was long with merlot and coffee. Full bodied and smooth. Odd but interesting.

On tap at the brewpub 6/8/08: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a frothy dark tan head. Lightly sweet roasty dark caramel nose has notes of coffee and licorice. Body starts fairly full and milky sweet with some earthy licorice and dark chocolate bittering notes before a drier roasty finish. A pretty nice oatmeal stout.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub Another master craftmanship by this brewpub. Only mild roast, and only 4.8% a.b.v. Very opaque brown with a light brown head. Taste a bit as if on nitro-tap. Creamy mouthfeel consistent with that. Cold coffee and chocolate, great bittersweetness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On nitro at the brewpub. Arrived at the table black with a moderate creamy off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left patchy lace. Very pleasant aroma of roasted malt along with some chocolate. The flavor is lightly roasted malt with a bit of chocolate. Incredibly smooth and silky on the palate, and the addition of the oatmeal adds depth and body to the silky smoothness. This is simply a very, very nice stout.
