On tap @ Piece as Roland the Headless Oat Stout. This wasn’t bad, but it could have used some improvement. A bit of chocolate and caramel in the nose and a bit of sweetness from the oats, and maybe just a hint of gamey leather there as well. Good roasted flavor throughout but was just a little bit light in the loafers. Needs some tweaking and it will be delicious.
On tap at the brewpub. Dark pour with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet grain, a little coffee, and roast. Taste is bitter chocolate, coffee, and grainy. Great finish. crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2015
Draft. Dark brown pour. Nice dry smokey element to go with some coffee. Nice little stout. ilovedarkbeer (2741) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Pours a black brown color with a small light brown beady head. Notes of coffee grounds, dark chocolate, smoke, and brownie. Dry mouthfeel and a short finish. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Full flavor and full body on a lower ABV beer. Well done. Black thick pour from draft at Piece. Tiny tan head. Oily oatmeal sweet and vanilla coffee tastes. Roasty aroma. Very good Lubiere (13911) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
A dark brown stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, sweet caramel chocolate malt with light butterscotch. In mouth, a sweet fruity chocolate malt with light coffee notes, a bit cloying. On tap at brewery.

Pretty deep cloudy brown with red tinges. Small tan head. Light coffee notes, molasses. Light dry bitterness, lingering sweetness. Heavy body, pretty chewy. Fine.

Love this oatmeal stout from Pece. Strong flavor of coffee and oatmeal. Ella like coffee and pours black with a tan head. Had at piece. This place really needs new beers.

Had on tap at the source, served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark black with a thin tan head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to thin ring and leaves some splotchy lace on the way down.
S: Dark roastiness, velvety caramel and espresso sweetness all fill those nose. Is this seriously the same beer I had at GI Stout Fest? There is a nice milk chocolate flavor as well as some toasted oatmeal malts to round it out.
T: Caramel sweetness and fudge brownie are present up front with a rich espresso flavor and a roasted malt body to smooth it out. There is a mild green hop bitterness on the finish.
M: Medium bodied with a nice carbonation. The body is creamy in nature also. There is a mild roasted bitterness on the finish.
O: I had this at GI Stout Fest and was slightly underwhelmed. Granted Piece just sent some growlers to GI that day, but it is day and night between fresh from the tap and 4+ hours of an open growler. Rich and creamy, this is a must try.
Serving type: on-tap

On draft at brewpub, pours a dark brown, almost black color, aromas of roasted malt, oats, and some light chocolate. Flavors are the same, light on the palate, a nice sessionable stout overall. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2012
