Pours a black color with a thick frothy one and a half finger head that is tan in color. The head settles but gives way to some decent lacing. The aroma is of chocolate malts and oatmeal with a hint of coffee. The taste has a nice roasted malt backbone with notes of chocolate, sweet oats, and coffee present. Big flavor. The mouthfeel was moderately carbonated, but slightly over carbonated for the style. The drinkability is very high, other than the mouthfeel everything about this beer left you wanting more. The mouthfeel is also a minor thing with this taste.

One of my top stouts so far. I've had it from several places but the brewpub in Thomas is the place to hit up for the best sampling of this brew.

A: Coal black, just like the name! Light brown head disappears quickly.

S: Strong coffee and hop odor with even a hint of smoke in there

T: I love coffee and the great coffee tones in this made my tastebuds dance with joy. Also chocolate and malts flowing together with a hint of smoke again. All flavors were very well-balanced.

M: Finishes more hoppy than expected. Feels very rich and thick in the mouth.

D: Very heavy, can't drink more than a couple before you get full. Its a wholesome beer, almost like you don't need to eat dinner, just grab one of these!

Appearance: black in color with a big 3" head that slowly falls to a thick surface foam. Some moderate lacing paints the glass.

Smell: roasted malt and softer chocolate tones are detectable.

Taste: roasted malt, dark chocolate, prunes, milder coffee tones, and some oat presence. Bitterness is mild.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Smooth from start to finish. Long lived aftertaste.

Drinkability: this beer was easy to drink and it hit the spot. A few can be easily had in a session.

An excellent oatmeal stout! It has a wonderful dark appearance with an excellent rich aroma, with a very soft hint of the oatmeal they put into it. It pours great, leaving a nice head with very good lacing. The taste is great, a true oatmeal stout, unlike a lot of stouts that just have a slight hint of oatmeal, this one has a strong flavor, but not so much that it's overpowering. I tried a taste of it at the brewery and was impressed enough to bring a growler home, which went much too fast. Luckily, I can also find it locally here in Morgantown, WV, at Black Bear Burritos.

Good, smooth beer. Low carbonation (at least the one I had). Overall, I would recommend this beer. Mine was in a can, not the bottled variety.

Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of an off-tan color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong roasted malt, hint of coffee, and a hint of sweet malt. Fits the style of an Oatmeal Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable dryness. Tastes of strong roasted malt, hint of coffee, slight alcohol, piney hops, slight chocolate, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, average appearance and aroma, but good complexity and blend.

Now for the taste, it is bold with roasted flavors. You do pick up on some nice mild sweetness and smokey flavors in the taste. This brew does go down smooth almost to smooth. The body of Miner's Daughter Oatmeal Stout is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. This is a bit lighter than most stouts on the market.

Got to try this on a recent visit to West Virginia. Tasty and very drinkable. Probably not as much punch as I would expect in an Oatmeal Stout, but a pretty good local option. Worth trying, but I don't think you would see much distribution outside of West Virginia.

From the taps of Black Bear Burritios in Morgantown, WV. Pint glass, dark brown, black color, good cocoa head, fair lacing, high carbonation.

Smells smoky as hell, with tosted malt and oats. Not a hop to be found, but if that's what I was looking for, I'd not be getting an Oatmeal Stout, now would I?

Crisp taste on palate. Smoke is present but doesn't dominate. Earthiness to the grains.

Good, dry mouthfeel, settling into a fullness as the beer develops on the palate. Drinkable is good. Could see getting another or two, easily.

Bottom line: the new guns in Dubbya-Vee have a good one to start with.This easilly hangs with the WVBC Oatmeal. Now, let's see them do something different for the Mountain State.
