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.

This came out a nice dark brown with a decent tan head. Lacing is evedent on the glass, and some pretty ruby hues show through when held to the light.

Aroma of dark roasted malts and lightly roasted coffee. Taste is roasty and smooth with a bit of hop bitterness. Really a nice creamy oatmeal stout. Nice feel and after two pints I could have continued drinking this for an entire session if I wasn't driving.

Pored dark brown with a nice, tan head that left lacing upon the pint glass emptying.
Smells of roasted barley, black malts and carmalized grains and floral backdrop.
Taste was roasty, malts expounding into a bitter hoppiness at the finish.A tad harsh roastiness was also evident, but not at all unpleasant.
Mouthfeel was fairly solid.

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.

On-tap at the brewery, served in a Mason jar. (Gotta love WV!)

Pours coal-black with a nicely retained, rocky tan head. Decent lacing and head retention. Aroma was a decent blend on the oats and pale chocolate, plus some coffee and biscuity malts. Overall, I would've liked it to be a bit stronger.

The flavor was a very satisfying blend of creamy oats, cocoa, roasted malts and a hint of earthen hops. Very smooth mouthfeel, but a bit light body-wise (I blame the 6% ABV limit...), although this did make for an extremely drinkable oatmeal stout. I would definately have this again, and am kicking myself for not grabbing a growler of this in addition to the Almost Heaven Amber that I purchased.

An excellent oatmeal stout! It has a wonderful dark appearance with an excellent rich aroma, with a very soft hint of the oatmeal they put into it. It pours great, leaving a nice head with very good lacing. The taste is great, a true oatmeal stout, unlike a lot of stouts that just have a slight hint of oatmeal, this one has a strong flavor, but not so much that it's overpowering. I tried a taste of it at the brewery and was impressed enough to bring a growler home, which went much too fast. Luckily, I can also find it locally here in Morgantown, WV, at Black Bear Burritos.

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.

From the taps of Black Bear Burritios in Morgantown, WV. Pint glass, dark brown, black color, good cocoa head, fair lacing, high carbonation.

Smells smoky as hell, with tosted malt and oats. Not a hop to be found, but if that's what I was looking for, I'd not be getting an Oatmeal Stout, now would I?

Crisp taste on palate. Smoke is present but doesn't dominate. Earthiness to the grains.

Good, dry mouthfeel, settling into a fullness as the beer develops on the palate. Drinkable is good. Could see getting another or two, easily.

Bottom line: the new guns in Dubbya-Vee have a good one to start with.This easilly hangs with the WVBC Oatmeal. Now, let's see them do something different for the Mountain State.
