A 22 ounce bottle from FluffyMcTingle; thank you once again! Bottled in 12/2011, and split into tulips this evening.

Pours black and develops approximately 3 centimeters of thick, tan head. Retention is stupendous, with a minimum of a thin layer of bubbles still coating the surface even late into the drink. Additionally, gobs of wet lacing adorn the glass. I couldn’t ask for anything more here.

The aroma is of oatmeal, subdued coffee grounds, mocha and cacao, faint roasted nuts and grains, a touch of caramel malt, hints of vanilla, and brown sugar. A good amount of sweetness to balance out the grain and oat aromas.

It tastes of hearty oatmeal topped off with chocolate and vanilla, served with a side of sweetened coffee. Really, a delicious breakfast served in a glass. Nutty hints and traces of vanilla play well with the faintly roasted grain flavors. Very well done here.

Mouthfeel is wonderful as well. Sure, it coats the palate on first drink, but it removes itself promptly without a syrupy or sugary aftertaste; only the best of the oats seem to linger on the roof of the mouth. Ample carbonation helps with this and to pull out the more delicate flavors.

Ultimately, this is a phenomenal brew. It really does bring notions of a delicious, hearty breakfast to the forefront of one’s thoughts (and tastebuds). Off the top of my head, I can’t think of a better oatmeal stout, making this one worth all efforts of seeking out.

4.39/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22oz bomber poured into an oversized snifter.

A: In color, it's as dark as brown can get before it becomes black. A one-inch khaki colored head soon settles into a thin slip. Lacing is sparse and thin.

S: A delightful aroma of freshly ground coffee beans wafts out of the glass. I could smell it long before I got my nose in there to sniff. Oats manifest themselves in the form of a starchy and somewhat spicy aroma. Hot cocoa and vanilla bean underneath the coffee scents. Very faint and vague darkfruit and only a suggestion of acidity. A good strong nose.

T: Rich, earthy coffee tastes open. Vanilla bean and creamy hot cocoa meld with the coffee to create a beautiful flavor combination. Oat contribution is multi-dimensional and adds starchy and spicy tastes along with a creamy impression. Dark chocolate and some acidic bitterness ride up on the palate toward the finish, along with hints of some herbal hop tastes. Long, impressive finish showcases rich coffee, layered chocolatey flavors, and maybe just a kiss of smoke.

M: Thick, but not too heavy. Very full, creamy, and fluffy. Carbonation is moderate, tight, and a bit prickly. It's nitpicking really, but the carbonation feels a tad too aggressive, and it takes away just a bit from the overall smoothness.

O: This is one amazing beer, and the best local brew I've had in a very long time. It can hold its own with the likes of Founders Breakfast Stout and Peche Mortel. I predict that this will be a highly sought after trade item once word starts to get out about this great beer and this great brewery.

Notes: Wormtown may just be the Northeast's best kept secret at this point. The few beers I've had by them have been stellar.
