3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Pours opaque black with a small brown head and little lacing. Aroma is strong coffee and dark roasted malts. Flavor is about the same, with notes of vanilla and molasses. Medium sweet, lightly bitter on the finish, and a light citric astringence. Body is medium to full. Nice beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Truly a pitch black body, a few fingers of fluffy khaki head recede to a thin cap that goes on to retain from start to finish.
Loads of fresh oatmeal, milk chocolate, some faint dry flaky hops, fresh cream, some brown ale characteristics.
Super smooth and velvety, oatmeal, slightly bitter chocolate... incredibly smooth and easy to drink. I think this growler’s gettin’ kicked tonight no problem.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some pulls from my wife’s two pints at Town Hall. This one pours a dark brown with a finger of beige head that dissipates into a film and ring. Notes of roasted malts, chocolate, oats, cream, caramel, toasted nuts, vanilla, and toast. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Roasty, sweet, and right to style.

On tap as part of the sampler tray. My first taste if town hall beer. Coffee flavour. Bit too cold for a stout

Growler to glass. Pours dark brown black with a quick khaki head that dissipates to a thin ring around glass. Aroma has roasted malt and cereal with a touch of soy. Taste is bitter roasted malt and black coffee with some cereal and soy or faint peat and prune flavors. Palate is full and slick with a dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Town Hall Brewery. Good mild chocolate and sweet roast aroma. Black. Mild creamy chocolate flavors; some balance in mid palate; final peters out rather quickly. Smooth, medium body, and a bit fizzy. Okay. Tasty. but nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at TH 20Aug2012, Of course it looks great, and smells great but the body is too thin, the oats dont seem to add much to make it smoother, fuller or creamier.. your average roast flavor makes this a solid beer but not superb

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid stout. Roasty, with a nice mocha backbone shoring up a moderately sweet center. Mildly bitter lingering fade, with even more chocolate and coffee popping up. I could definitely use another one of these.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampler at the brewpub. It poured a very dark brown color with a thin foamy brown head. The aroma was of dark roasted grains and ripe plums. The taste was of roasted grains, almost smokey with ash, vanilla, chocolate and juicy fruits. A very decent Stout.
