Nice flavor but a bit too carbonated IMO.

S: deeply roasted grains; bittersweet chocolate;

T: deeply roasted grains up front with an underlying sourness; smoky finish with moderate bitterness;

M: a little thing; moderate carbonation;

O: the smoky finish was a pleasant surprise, but the rest was a little boring; the sourness in the flavor wasn't to my liking;

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.

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

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.
