Tap at the G Man. Very thick dark brown to black hue. Soft tan head. Lots of roasted malts on the nose. Some caramel and bitter notes. Very little chocolate; was hoping for more. Flavors of roasted coffee ground, dark chocolate and bitter black malts are sent my way. Finishes with tons of coffee. Slick feel, easy finish. Very well done.

Draught > Gingerman. First off, the palate on this sucker is great. Creamy, thick and a little dry. This taste just what an oatmeal stout should taste like. Roasty and dry and little bitter coffee flavors but not so much that the oat flavor is covered up. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells delicious, but the flavor doesn’t quite hold up to it’s aromatic expectations. Pretty dense deep dark silky black color with a fine off white head. Chocolate-roasted malt aroma. Flavor isnice and tasty, not overly malty or rich. Reminiscent of an Irish Stout, yes, but made quite nice with the chocolate and touch of coffe. Not over-Oated like other oatmeal stouts... A great balance and nice recipe. Smooth mouthfeel, and the same while going down the hatch. Slight bitter in the finish, but joined by a light sweetness. Nice job!
