Mayflower Brewing Company - Winter Oatmeal Stout, poured into a Craftgeer snifter.

Look - Pours thin viscosity black with a small foamy head that dissipates quickly and no lacing.

Smell - Aroma is chocolate, oatmeal, and roasted malts. Well rounded. Big oats. Sweet.

Taste - Thin but packed full of oats with a side of roasted malts, tasty.

Mouthfeel - Thin with moderate carbonation. Lingering oats. Zero booziness and easy to drink but the brew starts to lose steam here a bit.

Overall - For a non-imperial (read: thin) oatmeal stout, this is good.

It tries to make a decent head. It doesn't. It tries to smell nice, it does a better job at that. It tries to taste good, and it does. It tries not to feel too heavy. It's medium.

It's a beer that keeps on trying. It isn't going to move on to the olympics or be a professional. But it might have a really good college career that leads to a good job and a happy family. It has to work for it, but it ultimately is comfortably successful. Upper middle class.

No one will write a book, or even a post, about this beer. But people who meet it will say, 'oh yeah! That guy! That was surprisingly good!' when they hear it mentioned in passing.

"PKG 11/26/13" is printed on the label.

I poured aggressively and got a finger of rich brown head. This fizzled away in seconds, leaving me nary a ring to enjoy in my glass. The body is a deep profound brown that borders on black, and it does not show any sign of lacing. As I look down into the beer, I can see minute bubbles popping on the surface.

Richly roasted malt and light yet rich aromas of coffee and chocolate abound.

Oatmeal and roasted malt are strong up front. A little roasted nut flavor with earthy tones fills it out. Doesn't make a big deal of itself, and honestly isn't very impressive.

The mouthfeel is a little disappointing. It is light-medium bodied, and seems to go down way too easy. It is a little too carbonated in my opinion. It leaves a hint of a coating on the tongue.
