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.
