Picked up a fresh growler at the brewery today, man, that place is even crowded at 4:30 in the afternoon.
The color is a spot on jet black but the head is only temporary and unimpressive by stout standards. No lacing either. The nose is a strong blast dominated by roasted malt although there may be more there.
The taste is likewise strong and likewise dominated by several different malts. A bit of a sour taste initally but it's not an unpleasant thing and soon gives way to a mellow sweetness. Mouthfeel is very nice if not overly heavy. Overall though this is still a solid meal..God knows how many calories.
Nothing bad about this beer for stout fans. Very solid across the board.

On-tap 1/7/07 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of roasted oats, strong coffee, some chocolate and caramelized malt.

T: Taste is malty and rich with flavors of coffee, oats and a hint of chocolate. After-taste is only slightly sweet.

M: Very smooth, medium-to-heavy body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Very tasty, goes down easy, just a little filling, this one borders on being a coffee porter, which I like, a good twist on the Oatmeal Stout style. I liked this beer, but I’d just like to see a little bit more of a kick to it.

Pours black with a large tan head that descends to a lasting thin cover. Sheets of lacing stick to the glass.

The smell is of chocolate with roasty, slightly earthy, notes.

The taste is of chocolate, hint of walnuts, with a roasty semi-dry finish.

It has a velvety smooth, slightly oily, medium body.

Very easy to drink, this is an enjoyable stout!

Dark, nearly black in appearance. Tan head with a bit of lace.

Smells of rich, roasted coffee and dark chocolate.

Sweet tasting with a dry finish. Definite hints of chocolate and coffee, with a burst of sweetness towards the end. Dry finish. Not as thick as other stouts but very rich and satisfying.

Cask-conditioned at The Ginger Man, Manhattan. Black in colour with a good tan head and good glass lacing. Aroma was moderately malty. Taste was smooth with roast malt dominating, with dark chocolate notes also in evidence. Dry, clean finish. A good, easy-drinking stout which benefits by being in cask form.

A very dark/black color with a nice tan head that dissapears by the time you have imbibed half the glass. A very appealing smell, sort of a sweet aroma- very fresh to say the least. As for the taste, this is a rich, sweet oatmeal stout, with nice mellowness to it. It's maltiness hit hard in the beginning, but my palate became used to it, so I did not perceive this beer as too sweet. I also do not think this beer is as heavy as other oatmeal stouts, which is a nice balance. I felt I could have had more of them, which is always a good sign

The beer pours a deep dak black color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is awesome. It has a dry oatmeal scent along with loads of black patent and chocolate malts. The taste is good. It has a smooth black/chocolate malt flavor that goes down easy and finishes dry with an oatmeal feel. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a good oatmeal stout. It has good flavor and a kick ass aroma; a good drinker.

Swung by the brewery after work to check things out and it was hopping. Beer was a deep watery black with off white bubbling. Smells great of chocolate roasted malts. Tastes just as nice, but the flavor has a lot more roasted character to ot. This is a really tasty oatmeal stout with a great body and fantastic drinkability. Almost like an oatmeal stout crossed with a porter from the watery porter tingle. Pretty thin for an oatmeal stout.

Growler from local beer store poured into a tulip glass. Served chilled but not cold.

A- Black with thin cream colored head which dissipates quickly and leaves an espresso type crema.

S- Vanilla and chocolate with faint roasted coffee notes.

T- My favorite feature of this beer. Dark chocolate, roasted coffee, malt and a little smokiness.

M- A little thin and watery for a stout but goes down smooth. Light carbonation felt in bubbles on front of palate. Leaves a pleasant toasted malt aftertaste on back of palate.

Overall I like this beer a lot, somewhat reminiscent of a coffee or a chocolate stout.

On cask at the Pizza Plant,poured a near opaque black with just a hint of ruby in the body with a creamy mocha colored top that stuck around till I finished my pint.Unsweetened chocolate and earth dominated the aromas,not very sweet at all flavor wise unsweetened chocolate and earth dominated the flavors almost like a dry stout.Body was a tad thin but it lent to its drinkability as it went down easily.One of the few stouts I have had on cask,a flavorful if no frills oatmeal stout.

A - Dark brown pour with a white foam. Lacing streaks down the glass. Foam retention is minimal.

S - Nice scent of dark chocolate, toffee, and oat flakes. There is a slight smell of sweet maple syrup as well.

T - Has an early sweetness of rich chocolate. The body of this beer is full of rich, dark, malt. Finish has a hearty finish of oatmeal, and syrup.

M - For a 5% stout this feels much heavier. Balance is good. Easy drinking stout. Leaves a rich cocoa flavor on the palate.

O - One of me favorites from Blue Point. Wish this was in a 6 pack.

Poured a very dark brown hue with a two finger large bubbled head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell was all coffee and a nice roasted grain aroma. A lingering sweet aroma as well.

The taste was dominated by coffee and roasted malt. A nice sweetness cut by an appropriate hop presence.

The mouthfeel was full, but clean.

A good drinkable stout. A nice American adaptation of the style.

Pours a light brown, thick, choppy head. It sort of looks like seafoam, but in a nice sort of way. Head remains and coats the glass down as the beer empties. Smells a little sweet, somewhat fruity. tastes light, with subtle flavors, making it very drinkable
