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.
