In short: A typical roasted creamy oatmeal stout. Good execution of a standard style.tom10101 (6084) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
How: Nitro-tap at brewpub.
The look: Black body topped by a medium tan head.
In long: Nose is big straightforward pleasant roast, nothing more, nothing less. Taste is pretty much what you can expect from a roasted nitro oatmeal stout. Burnt grainy oatmeal, lactic notes bringing a milk chocolate sensation, light coffee notes, green herbal hops. Some bittersweet black chocolate in the after-taste. Full creamy mouthfeel. Typical example of the style, I feel like I’ve had a beer like this 100 times before and I could have another 100 and not complain. And despite all the talk lately on the TV I guess I really don’t understand what people mean when they say New-Hampshire is a swing State because the brewpub staff told to put my pants back on.
Can (12 oz) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Split 2-ways.

Appearance: Black with a medium thick and easy to revive creamy brown head and good lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malts, caramel, vanilla, herbal presence and light ashes.
Taste: Similar to the aroma, but more expressive. Caramel, roasted malts, vanilla and light ashes. Sweetness level is moderate. Light bitterness.
Palate: Meidum to full body. Medium carbonation. Silky mouthfeel. A tad creamy too. Roasty finish.
Overall: Very tasty oatmeal stout and quite decadent for a 4.9% abv beer. Interesting interpretation of the style. Good balance. Loved it.
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a nice black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about forty five seconds leaving some light clingy stringy lacing.
The smell started off with a nice sweet to roasty coffee. Eventually, as it warmed, there was a nice sweet milk chocolate and a touch of bitter dark chocolate.
The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and blended nicely. The aftertaste was really nice as it combined all the previously mentioned flavors in a sticky fashion. A moderately quick sweet finish clings nicely.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs smooth and lets in a nice graininess from the oatmeal.
Overall, sweet stout or oatmeal stout. Whatever it is, I’d have again. thornecb (5912) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Pours black into a tulip. Mocha head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Chocolate and espresso aromas. Thick and dry with sweet hot chocolate upfront turning to licorice before the lasting espresso finish. JulienHuxley (5809) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2015
Sample on tap at the brewpub. Deep black pour with reddish hue and an immortal creamy tan foam. Aroma is nice and roasty, light fruitiness, oatmeal. Taste is bitter, nice roasty/sweet balance. Palate is light bodied and silky. Good.

Une canette acheté à Waterbury. Un liquide noir avec cette mousse crémeuse et bien dense. Un nez bien rôti et torréfié avec du lactose et des fruits foncés. Des saveurs bien agréables, généralement fruitées, rôties, fumantes, délicieuses, chocolatées, crémeuses. Une sensation en bouche des plus plaisantes. Belle texture presque soyeuse. Une finale amèrement noire. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Another good dark beer from Millys-. Pours a nice deep dark brown verging on black and a nice lasting head. Aroma id nice dark roasted barley- light coffee, dark chocolate sharp and bitter, almost a slight tartness. Flavor has more of that real acrid burnt malt almost a sharp acrid bitterness- roasted barely- coffee, and a light sweet caramel flavor. Finish is a bit too dry but still good. muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2005
New England Road Trip Easter ’05 with MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere, beer #20. Small sample at the brewpub, also in the company of Volgon and brewer Dirtymike. Near-black, oily-viscous body with a lasting head...dark, roasty nose, chocolate and licorice...very sweet body, balanced-just-by espresso...smooth body, could be fuller. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2005
Moderate roasty malt aroma with a chocolate character and some raisin-like fruity esters. Opaque brown-black with tan head that recedes slowly to ring. Raisins and roasts play nicely together in the mouth with plenty of malty sweetness. Medium body is somewhat slick in texture with low carbonation. Sampled at the brewpub with dirtymike, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Rastacouere and Volgon. johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Can from Bert’s
Chocolate caramel coffee and molasses with bits of sulfur or mineral water. Decent brew.
