On tap at brewpub. A ruby reddish black with a short lived white head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roast. Flavor is roast, coffee. Finish is dry, coffee bitterness. Light body, watery mouthfeel, average carbonation. Flavorful, but lacking in body and complexity.

Part of a flight at the taproom. Notes just say surprisingly sweet without being cloying. Not crazy about nitro beers usually, but this one was very pleasant.

On tap at Town Hall. Pours a very dark brown with light passing as crimson when backlit. Aroma is mild and sweet chocolate malt, caramel and oak. Flavor is same with slight off flavor I’ve tasted in home brews. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, bittersweet finish.

On tap. Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, light oatmeal. Taste is very smooth and the flavors are there. I was expecting the roastiness to hit me in the face a bit more but it was well-balanced.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap pour at brewery. black pour with a thick tan head..aroma is what you would probably expect...roasted malt, sweet chocolate, oatmeal notes, hint of something burnt...melds together nicely. flavor is very forward with the same...chocolate and roasted malt, a slight lactic note, oatmeal...good stuff though, and this would stand out in a row of oatmeal stouts IMO. palate is chewy and thick, but not overly so. good beverage, this one exceeded my expectations.
