Pours a dark black color with a clean malt aroma. Taste is simple malt with a mild roasted caramel flavor. The tiny bitterness at the end of the beer quickly disappears. The oatmeal flavor is evident in the aaftertaste. Wish this beer was more complex.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very drinkable stout. Not overpowering on body or flavor. Hints of roasty chocolate. They did a good job creating a very middle of the road stout that doesn’t steamroll the tastebuds.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nitro tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours very dark brown/black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of smooth burnt malt and chocolate. Med body or better. It’s quite smooth (nitro?). Has Burnt malt, chocolate and perhaps vanilla. Maybe a touch of smoke. And a little coffee. Finishes drier than not, and arguably just on the bitter side. Quite nice.

I’m not a stout drinker, but this beer convinced me to try out stouts again! It’s very balanced, not too much coffee and not too much chocolate flavor, yet very velvety and smooth! Talking with people in the tasting room, many said that this was the best stout they’ve every had! And I agree!
