Barcade. Pours a nice deep dark black body and a nitro tight head. Aroma is nutty, doughy, almost yeasty with a good full oat profile- roasty and coffee hints. Smooth moderate sweet caramel malt, full oats, creamy, nutty, and good full fresh chocolate with a light bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking. Nice.

On cask at Dive 96 in NYC. Pours black with little head to speak of. Aroma is roasty but very faint. Flavor is roasty and finishes clean, not overly burnt. For cask pour this felt thin; I would not have guessed this was from a cask. Eh...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Peekskill Brewery. Pours a dark black with a small light tan head. Slight contrast of sweet malt and roast on the nose, but it’s a little shy almost. Thin to medium bodied and a roast flavor that borders on being burnt, and a little bitter. Ends with a soft light bitter with a little astringency.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro at Brazen Head. Standard brown-black color with a creamy light brown head. Milky aroma. Flavor of sweet chocolate, almost a "Bosco" flavor, with a nutty graininess underneath. Very faint roasty bitterness at the end. Lotiony mouthfeel. All in all a smooth and fresh chocolately stout that made for a nice brunch.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at Bellport Cold Beer and Soda. Thank you to Dave for letting me tap the cask, my first one! My virginity has now been broken. Pours very dark brown, not quite black, with a thin, bubbly, tan head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt and a few notes of coffee as well. The flavor is char, roasted malt, and perhaps a touch of coffee. Characteristic bitter Sixpoint finish. If there are oats in here to lend smoothness, I’m not getting any of it. A solid stout nonetheless.

Nitro at Sunset Grill. Aroma is really light. Grainy, sour coffee, bitter chocolate, but only kinda. Not very balanced or unified.

Gravity cask from Gingerman in NYC with some buddies from work. Dark muddy color, zero carbonation. I took this for a bold porter than a stout. All around good.
