Draught at the brewpub. Pours black with amber edges and a rocky tan head. The aroma is sweet chocolate, some berries, and lots of grain. the flavor is bitter chocolate with some caramel and earthy hops everywhere. Strong toasted oat notes take over the finish. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at brewpub. Black pour with a thick creamy light brown head (on nitro BTW). Roasty burnt toast malt aroma. Nice roasted malt flavor with tons of coffee in the finish. Silky smooth mouthfeel from the nitro, like slipping into bed naked with quality silk sheets. The addition of oats adds a little body. Overall, a good true-to-style nitro Irish Stout. Shame there’s no way to get this to go.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub, poured black with a nice tan head. There was a watery feel to this beer and it did not seemed very well balanced.

for a stout i thoguht this was thin and lacking in taste. It looked really good but beyond that there wasnt’ much to it. perhaps i got a bad batch. If i’m ever up in selinsgrove i’ll have to try again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pitch black hue with a tan, creamy head. Chocolate, coffee, oats, dust in the aroma. Moderate to heavily sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: smooth, but this would be better without the "nitro kill".

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On nitro at Pub. Pitch black, smooth creamy head but fades. Lots of roasted barley with hints of chocolate and nuttiness. Fairly sweet with some oil-like quilities similar to sam smiths- from the oatmeal. Should be labelled an oatmeal stout due to the 15% organic oatmeal used in the mash.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On nitro at the pub. Smooth and innocuous, creamy, like all nitros. Nose largely chocolate and roast. Tan head and good body. Sweet and roasty throughout with a clean finish and no bitter kickback. Good lacing. This would be be better off the nitro.
