my first beer from Davidson bros, and its a winner. nitro tap does this a lot of favors I have a feeling. the pour is rich and creamy brown, just like a Guinness, with the same thick tan milkshake foam. the nose has some coffee amidst the dark roasty barley and the slightly spicy yeast. the flavor is bitter dark chocolate, earthy raw coffee, and a sweet oatmeal cereal finish. very complex, very layered, very well balanced, a perfect illustration of the style. the lower abv makes it easy to drink a lot of, even though its got a lot of body and only soft carbonation from the nitro. I love the creamy feel, I love the depth of flavors, and I will be keenly looking out for more stuff from these guys.

Got a 20oz pint at Drop Off Service in the East Village. It appeared pitch black with a thick tan head. This is a rich and creamy oatmeal stout, but not too heavy. It's got that great toasty, cookie-like roast of a good oatmeal stout. The finish had a pleasant dry bitterness with a little cocoa. This is a tasty beer, definitely worth a second pint.

Poured in a pint glass. Looks just like a guinesse, a little heavier in body. Not quite as airy in the glass. The beer sits a little heavier, obvisouly cooked in an open kettle, it sits heavy in the glass. A tan fizz holding lots of roasted oat smell. Creamy oat texture in the beer as well. Finished with some coffee chocolate bitterness. Body is light with a creamy finish. Overall:Dangerously sessionable stout at 4.5%.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a bark brown-black color with a big two fingers of thick brownish head. The head hangs around forever, finally reducing down to a still sizeable layer leaving lots of lace on the glass in the process.

S - Aroma is a mix of lots of roasted sweet caramel malts and some oats. There is also a touch of coffee and caramel in the background.

T - Starts off with some sweet roasted caramel malt flavor with some oats in the background. Through the middle some sweet milk flavor and some chocolate flavors come through. The finish is a mix of roasted caramel and coffee flavors that linger nicely.

M - Medium bodied with moderate-low carbonation. Feels super smooth and creamy. Finish is really creamy and roasty with some nice sweet notes.

D - Very drinkable. The nitro tap really creates an outstanding looking beer here. The flavors are all really nicely balanced and the beer feels really great.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is very dark brown in color. It poured with a finger high creamy tan head that has good retention properties and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light aromas of roasted malts in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some notes of chocolate and coffee in the flavors.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, creamy and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is very easy to drink because it’s not as filling compared to other beers in the style. I could easily have a few of these in one sitting, as the low alcohol content makes it sessionable.

Everything about this beer I had at Amity Hall on nitro tap was average. It's definitely not bad. It's also not terribly impressive. Just another local.

Like the Murphy's I had night, this is just one of those slightly malty dark in appearance light in impact brews that passes in the tongue intended for drinkability and not much else.

I can't knock them for that. Except I was drinking for taste. It's well composed but totally watery. No hops, the malt character isn't pronounced, and it's meager head even on nitro tap is just like... Meh.

Meh.

3.03/5  rDev -20.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3

A: Black body with a dense tan head. Great lacing.

S: Strong aroma of roasted coffee & dark chocolate malts. Getting some smoke which is weird.

T: A faint roasted malt upfront with notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Slight oat flavor that is cut by a subtle smokey taste. Finishes slightly bitter.

M: Extremely thin for the style. Watery texture, medium body, light carbonation.

O: I love oatmeal stouts, but this one was just off. I think if the mouthfeel was a bit more chewy and the taste didn't have a smokey flavor, I may have rated this higher. I probably would try this again in the future because I love the style, but I would be nervous to down another watery stout.

barcade in brooklyn on tap.

a. almost black, but closer to brown, looks light. not much head to report on. laces a little.

s. oaty woodsy smell. very coffee. wish it was stronger.

t. almost tastses like guiness. disappointed, but it has really nice coffee and dark chocolate after tones and an oaty finish that really improves on the beer's impression.

m. average. low carbonation, but very light for a stout. thus the 2.5

d. easy to drink, but not real enjoyable. but a good effot on the oatmeal stout from this upstate new york brewery.
