From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #67 (August 2012):

LOOK: Tiny bubbles, black, big head

SMELL: Charcoal, faintly acrid, Mexican chocolate, burnt raisins

TASTE: Slick, creamy, smooth, medium body, tart, burnt toast, semi-acrid, mild oat sweetness, modest hopping, grapeskin; burnt, dry-ish finish

Dedicated to the collapse of “The Old Man of the Mountain,” granite ledges in the White Mountains of New Hampshire that looked like an old man. A bit off kilter but still noticeably within the style. We’d hoped for more balance, but the burnt flavors wanted to take over with each sip.

Serving type: bottle

Had this one on tap. Although the head was not as robust as I would have thought for an Oatmeal Stout, the aroma was great. Lots of roasted malt and a hint of smoke. The taste followed the same theme with a slightly sweet malty start, but then a roasted and smoky finish. I really liked this beer and how it wasn't just a sweet, thick stout. Had no idea it was only 5% abv. Good for them packing all that flavor into a lower abv beer

Serving type: on-tap

Black with a smooth blanket tan head. Great retention but not the perfection I expect from a nitro tap.

Smells like dark roast malt. Tastes like it too. Light body, a bit water if you're looking for a dense, chewy stout.

My favorite from Woodstock Inn. It's neither complex nor chewy but I love it as a sessionable stout when the mood hits for dark beer.

A fine way to wash down a Moosilauke summit.
