[Backlog 2013.] Draft at Pony with Linh. Pours a deep blackish brown body with nice off white head. Aroma is deep roast, roasted malt and bitter cocoa. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of roast, light coffee, bitter chocolate and oat. LilBeerDoctor (4032) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2013
On nitro tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a thick foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, lactose, light chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, light char/burnt malt, bitter chocolate. This is a decent oatmeal stout, drinkable but nothing special. Smooth nitro mouthfeel.

Served a deep dark brown with a hint of ruby. A Lasting tight head graces the top of the sampler glass. To the nose it is sweet chocolate, the olfactory equivalent of a tootsie roll. Smooth and light on the tongue, this beer quickly wins me over with its subtle maltiness and subdued hops. An easy choice for a winter session beer. Has a pleasant roasty character without the burnt or bitter notes characteristic of some other examples of the style. On tap at the brewpub in Glens Falls. freeski919 (5) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 29, 2012 does not count
Draught poured as part of sampler at the brewpub. Poured black with a thick off white head. Malty richness in the flavor with caramel notes. Thick, creamy head with a solid bodied beer. Significant contrast to the other brews at this brewery. jmulv (336) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2012
I really liked this one. Pours a deep brown with a medium tan head to it. Taste is very malty - chocolate, cocoa. Finishes smooth and dry. Pretty thick. Very good stout. Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Growler. Pours dark red, dark brown in the glass, with a small tan head. Aromas of coffee, raisin, chocolate and some cherry, and mildly tart fruit. The flavor is slightly bitter cocoa and earthy bitterness, sweet chocolate, and mocha. Creamy, with low carbonation and a dry finish. Pretty good.  ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 23, 2011
A - Pours a bark brown-black color with a big two fingers of thick brownish head. The head hangs around forever, finally reducing down to a still sizeable layer leaving lots of lace on the glass in the process.
S - Aroma is a mix of lots of roasted sweet caramel malts and some oats. There is also a touch of coffee and caramel in the background.
T - Starts off with some sweet roasted caramel malt flavor with some oats in the background. Through the middle some sweet milk flavor and some chocolate flavors come through. The finish is a mix of roasted caramel and coffee flavors that linger nicely.
M - Medium bodied with moderate-low carbonation. Feels super smooth and creamy. Finish is really creamy and roasty with some nice sweet notes.
D - Very drinkable. The nitro tap really creates an outstanding looking beer here. The flavors are all really nicely balanced and the beer feels really great.
