I so looked forward to this beer on the flight I tried because the 4 before were horrible and the Oatmeal Stout followed suit. The ingredients did not mesh. The appearance was ok, but on tap it came with a very minimal head and thats usually my favorite part of a good Oatmeal Stout. If you'd like to try a nice Oatmeal stout stick with Samuel Smith or Blue Point Brewery

Sorry to be a downer, but this beer was full of diacetyl during our visit to the Union Square location. Very dark cola color, but not opaque. Came topped with a 1/2 inch of tan frothy head. A lot of butter in the aroma, but to be fair, perhaps some toffee as well. The roasty finish couldn't make me forget the initial buttery rush of flavor at the start however.

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer pours a jet brown body with a cloud of light tan head floating in the middle of the glass and is a bit bubbly. The body is too dense to see any carbonation.

S-The big coffee aroma was a bit like coffee grounds with some dark chocolate roasted malt hints to follow.

T- There was a slight sweetness to the big coffee flavor and notes of cocoa with a watery taste to follow. The finish tasted like a cigar butt and was enhanced by the astringent mouthfeel.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a slight watery texture followed by an astringent finish.

D- This was a tough beer to get down. Some of the flavors were interesting but the astringency and taste grew as the beer warmed.

Pours a nice dark brown color with an off white head. There's some good roasted malt in the nose, along with the usual suspects, coffee and chocolate, but it's all a bit on the weak side. The taste mimicks the nose, but is unremarkably light and watery. A poor example of the style. The finish is thick, and viscous, creamy, but the flavor is like watered down embers. Not pleseant.

I part company with the other reviewers on this one. It is a decent looking beer, with a dark mahogany hue. This dry coffee stout has quite a bit of carbonation for the style. There are some chocolatey notes but what is most memorable is the chalky flavor, the slightly burnt molasses note or two, and the coffee and mocha underpinnings. This one had no real discernible oatmeal creaminess one would expect for the style. I give this one a big miss.

On tap at the Heartland Brewery on 43rd.

The waiter really pushed this one on us. Blah blah blah awards blah blah blah. This guy was comparing all stouts to Guinness...come on! Honestly this stout did nothing for me. It pours a deep brown almost black color with red highlights and an off white head. The nose is of straight black coffee and burnt grain/malts. This stout is crazy high in licorice flavor, also burnt wood, burnt malts, coffee/mocha, and cream. Heavy medium body. I wouldn't even go for another shot on this one.

Got a pint of this at the brewery.

A: Pours a dark black body with a tan head with low retention and some lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: A dark, roasted smell with some coffee undertones which was quite enticing.

T: A nice, roasted taste, but seemed a little watered down. Some coffee notes were evident in the aftertaste.

M: Fairly thin and a little watery. This beer even seemed a little too thin, even for a stout.

D: An ok combination for mouthfeel and taste, but nothing overly impressive. I was expecting a little more from this beer. You can drink it, but I can't say it's a good representation of the style.

Had on nitro-tap at the Lower Manhattan location by the pier. Pours a thick dark brown with a nice inch of head. Nothing but the faintest smell of roasted oats in the nose. Taste is more roasted oats and some cocoa bean. Mouthfeel is very creamy and smooth. Not a bad beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured almost pure black with a thin white head.

Didn't have much smell could get malts not much else.

It didn't have a huge amount of flavour I could get malts and some bitter hoppiness.

Felt smooth in the mouth with a little carbonation.

Overall not the best oatmeal stout, pretty mediocre.
