On tap. Very smooth stout here, one of my favorite Summit offerings. very dense thick head with small bubbles and long retention. Guinness-like comparisons are legit...

Had on draft at the airport. The nose is initially slightly sour/acidic. The sour note is also in the flavor, roasted malts bring on some chocolate and coffee character. Not bad, but I do not care for the sour note throughout.

tap at Tracy’s Saloon for int’l stout day, what more can I say this beer is pretty well defined and true to the style, its a flaked smooth bodied stout with all the essentials, not a strong tasting brew but a nice first beer, or a great dark beer to fool your friends.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Black with whispy, tan head / Dry, earthy, toasty nose of coffee and chocolate / Medium body, a touch thin, grassy and sour, / Weedy, sour flavors of chocolate, dark roast coffee, and caramel / Pretty much dreadful. Wonder if something is wrong with this barrel.

Sampled at the Artisans Craft Beer Festival 2012. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt and nuts. The taste was the same. A good Oatmeal Stout.
