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.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Climbed the carriage trail with this one on 7/26/2004. 16-oz. pour at the Woodstock Inn Brewery in a shaker glass.

An eighth of an inch, creamy, mocha-colored head, and very tight; thought we might be able to stand a quarter on top of it, and one of my so-called friends, Jim, tried to do just that, much to my chagrin. Deep, unfathomable, jet-black hue that Kumar said reminded him of the dark side of the moon. Jumpy blackberry and junipers on tongue, with a creamsicle sweetness following afterwards that dissipated quickly with little clinging. Further notes of charred oak with some roasting peat that were pleasant additions. A medium-bodied, and very clean, stout.

Serving type: on-tap

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

Blue Echo and I swung by the Woodstock Inn and Brewery after hiking up Cannon Mt. We were in the mood for something dark and hearty, and the oatmeal stout seemed the best bet. The obsidian brew was poured into a takll shaker glass, with a lingering nitro-tap head. The brew looks like a beer for guiness fans, but packs more flavor and body. The aroma is of burnt grains and the flavor profile is a bit more complex, but not outstanding. The dominant notes are burnt malts, oatmeal, and nuts. There are some subtle chocolate and toffee flavors and a bit of a sourdough finish. It's a solid, full bodied, and drinkable brew.

From a 22 oz. bottle with an expiration date of May 2012. Sampled on March 9, 2012. The pour is about as oily black as an oatmeal stout should be with an adequate mocha head. I'll give the apperance a 5. The aroma is enriched with dark malts, oatmeal, and coffee grinds. The body is thinner than I would like in a stout. The flavor also has a coffee-like character with a bitter and moderately dry finish. It is not all that bad.

Had this one on 12/26/06 at Harlow's Pub in Peterborough,NH

AP: looks hefty, deep and dark. Pitch black color, with a remarkably smooth and even mocha-frothy head. The head very dense and very smooth, much like an Irish Stout i.e Guinness and Murphy's Draught style.

Nose: Nutty scented malt with cream, mild chocolate and oak scents.

Taste: The first hit is a mildly bitter roastie malt and nutty flavor with slight vanilla current, charcoal...much roastieness!!. There is also some red wine like sourness as well in the finish.

MF: Very dry, Full body. Ultra smooth and thick feeling.

DA: This is a very easy to drink style and one of my favorite's. This one looks and feels good, but the overall flavor was sub par at best. For me to NOT want another Oatmeal Stout is very strange.

Serving type: on-tap

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.
