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.

Very enjoyable beer. When this brew arrived very little head was left. Not sure if it dwindled down before arrival or what. Loved the nose. Nice chocolates, coffee, roasted. Complimented this brew with some red velvet cake, went very well! The decadent notes in the beer with the decadent flavors of the cake are hard to beat. Nice smooth mouth feel. Definitely something I would drink again.

Well, this is a weird beer. It looks tasty, the mouthfeel is great, the aroma is solid if perhaps a touch over-roasted, but there's something just a little bit off on the taste. If I knew more about how to catch beers with infections that haven't fully taken over yet, I might be able to describe it better, because I have a sneaky feeling that's what's going on here. There's a tart, slightly fruity flavor in the back that really doesn't fit the beer's flavor profile. It's too bad, because this would be a tasty one otherwise.

22 ounce bomber

It's extremely dark. There's simply nothing light about it. The head is a bit thin and not all that impressive and that's what keeps the score down.

As you'd imagine, it's a malt bomb. There's a bit of a chocolately scent to it, but caramel dominates. Slight anise and vanilla hint to it.

There's some malt to it, as well as a splash of hops, but it's lacking in lots of things. Caramel is all that really comes through and it mostly tastes like a watered down coke.

Needs some work. It's got a thin, watery feel. Somehow, it finishes with a carbonated bite but there's something missing that binds everything together. It's got a smoothness to it, but the watery feel early on and the carbonated feel in the swallow keep the smoothness underwhelming.

It's an easy drinker. ABV is only moderate at best. There's no alcohol or hop presence. It looks and smells pretty good, but it tastes and feels more like a water down soft drink.

The latest offering from my Long Island beer haul.

Dark brown with a peaceful blanket of beige retention. Leaves a few flakes of retention but not much. A dusting of lace if you will.

Char, ash and Raisinettes at first sip. That ruckus fades after a bit and leaves a quite pleasing dry roast oat aroma.

Tastes like watery chocolate and odd roast malt. There's an off flavor there that this beer is soaked in and I can't place it exactly but another review said chlorine - that's about right. Chlorinated.

This wasn't very good.
