4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Town Hall. Perfectly black stout with thick tan head. Wonderful aroma of chocolate and coffee along with hazelnut. Very creamy, thick, and powerful tasting stout, having similar, though milder, flavors to much stronger imperial stouts but without the overwhelming hit of alcohol. Good bitterness balances the sweetness. Excellent, especially at its (in house) price.
Growler. No head. Bold. Quite thick and creamy in a wonderful way. Sweet. Vanilla rounds out to caramel. rosenbergh (11613) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2016

On tap at the Brewery. Pour is deep brown with a big khaki colored head and great lacing. Roasty, cocoa, graham crackers, marshmallow, some caramel and brown sugar in the aroma. Taste is cocoa, coffee, somewhat earthy, lightly grassy, brown sugar, light cinnamon and bread. Medium body with medium carbonation. Solid stout, but could use some more body.

On tap at the Brewery/Brewpub -- This was the best of the flight. Great aroma, flavor and body. Fits the Oatmeal Stout category perfectly. VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
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. That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2014
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. italianjohn (3163) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2014
