Undated 22 oz bottle served in a snifter.

This Oatmeal Stout pours very dark mahogany but is clear and the bottle lacks sediment. The small tan head is short-lived and lives scant lacing.

Hints of dried fruits, bourbon(!) and faint coffee add to the flavor which is, as expected, dominated by roasted grains. The oatmeal is evident in the aroma, flavor and soft feel. No burnt grain.

Feel: Well chosen low carbonation. Medium-full bodied. Nicely smooth.

Pours black with a light tan film for a head.

Mild smokey and toasty aromas with a hint of cocoa.

Flavor is smokey and toasty, some light coffee bitterness.

Medium body with a soft carbonation on the tongue.

A pretty decent stout, okay flavor, but not fantastic. There are better oatmeal stouts.

Pours a dark brown color with a slightly off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, charcoal, somewhat meaty. Brewed with oatmeal but not nearly as smooth as some of the more famed versions of the style. Thin, boring, not really flavorful. Roasted malt, faint hops, bit of coffee. Thin, over force carbonated mouthfeel. Most American breweries take on this style and are much more inspired. Sub par.

This brew pours an extremely dark brown body with a tan head that vanishes, completely, within a minute.
The aroma is dominated by the roasted malt, with notable dark chocolate notes.
The flavor is rather flat in all regards--the roasted malt, the coffee notes as well as the chocolate and the non existent oat flavor. Nothing jumps out at all and nothing says "nicely balanced".
The mouthfeel is light and thin and just as underwhelming as the taste.
Overall, given the fact that Blue Point is a great brewery, this is an astonishing dud.
