Notes/Commercial Description:
Coal Black and creamy smooth, this beer holds a light tan head and is surprisingly light in body - so it won't fill you up.

Draft at Foxfire Grille, Snowshoe Mountain, WV. Has a fairly grapefruity hop aroma with a dash of roasted coffee thrown in. The body is dark brown to black and the finger sized tan head fades immediately. Fore is grapefruit and mild roast. Thin body. Sort of a black pale ale, but not a particuarly good pale ale....and a fairly crappy stout.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

L - It looks black until held to the light and some ruby red highlights come through. It is topped with three inches of tan head that leave some lacing on the glass.

S - I smell some dark chocolate and roasted malt giving the slightest burnt toast aroma.

T - The taste is similar to the smell. The roasted malt comes through more. It has a modest bitter finish.

F - Medium

O - It's better than their Seneca Indian Pale Ale. It's decent and quaffable. It pairs nicely with Loretta Lynn's "Coal Miner's Daughter."

Mountain State Oatmeal Stout

Had fresh, in a mason jar, at the brewery.

A: pours pitch black with very little head. The mason jar probably isnt helping with head retention... 3.0

S: Roasted Malts present but a bit "watery". Not the strong nose that I like. 3.0

T: roasted malts present, but not overpowering. Bitterness on the back end keeps this beer balanced. Oatmeal flavor can be hard to find... 3.0

M: thin and light. A bit watery. 2.5

D: reasonable. Would have another, but not if better options were present. 3.0

One of my top stouts so far. I've had it from several places but the brewpub in Thomas is the place to hit up for the best sampling of this brew.

A: Coal black, just like the name! Light brown head disappears quickly.

S: Strong coffee and hop odor with even a hint of smoke in there

T: I love coffee and the great coffee tones in this made my tastebuds dance with joy. Also chocolate and malts flowing together with a hint of smoke again. All flavors were very well-balanced.

M: Finishes more hoppy than expected. Feels very rich and thick in the mouth.

D: Very heavy, can't drink more than a couple before you get full. Its a wholesome beer, almost like you don't need to eat dinner, just grab one of these!

Got to try this on a recent visit to West Virginia. Tasty and very drinkable. Probably not as much punch as I would expect in an Oatmeal Stout, but a pretty good local option. Worth trying, but I don't think you would see much distribution outside of West Virginia.

Reviewed from notes. Had during a stop during our drive through West Virginia.

Pours very dark with a slight tan head. The nose brings some slightly-roasted malt and a little bit of chocolate. The taste is mostly roast and doesn't bring too much else. A bit dry and overly bitter from the roast. Drinkability is good enough, but this is a bit one dimensional and doesn't hit the right spots.

Growler from brewery. Pours a black with a very small light-brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, some chocolate, coffee, oatmeal and slightly nutty. Flavor is of coffee and oatmeal, but is fairly watery. Good beer, very drinkable but not a great stout.

3.03/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

appearance: pours a dark black, clear and transparent brown when edges held to light, light carbonation, slight bubbly creamy foam, leaving slight ring of lacing, did not appear to be thicker or more viscous that usual.

smell: roasted malts and oat scent are light but noticeable, no discernable aromas that stand out other than that.

taste: malts are bold yet mild, toasty oats with very slight notes of coffee, the taste of the alcohol is there and the hops contribute to an adequate bitter finish.

drinkability: nothing to rave about, but for a basic oatmeal stout, it has all of the elements.

On tap at the grill in Snowshoe. Pours black. Aroma was toasted malts and bread with some hops in the background. Body was somewhat watery for a stout, but very smooth. Flavor of bitter-sour hops balanced by toasted malts with a long coffee finish. Quite average brew but at least drinkable.
