Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, acidic malt, some coffee into a bit of grass, some slight fruity notes as well. Taste was a mix of caramel, dark chocolate, hints of vanilla into some acidic malt, roast, touch of coffee, finishing fairly bitter.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Black in color with a small khaki head. Nose opens with roasted malt, coffee, and a slight smokiness. A weird prune aroma and some acidity. A bit of alcohol, too. Tastes of roast, ash, and char. Somewhat smokey, a decent of coffee, dark chocolate, and prunes. Kind of alcoholic and astringent, too.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Pours a dark, reddish brown with a creamy tan film of head.
Aroma: Chocolaty roast and grassy hops.
Taste: Dry chocolaty roast, spicy hops and toasted grain.
Mouthfeel: Very thin, medium carbonation.
Overall: Nothing at all like a 7.3% Oatmeal Stout, but rather a dry irish stout. The best beer Solvang makes.
