A terrible beer and I'm sorely disappointed because I was excited to try a new Oatmeal stout. Color is fine, head is light tan, and the body is pretty light but has good mouth feel. The taste though, horrible. Strong metallic flavors, rather repulsive and completely overwhelming. Foul after-taste. Not sure if this was a bad batch, the cans were stored incorrectly or what, but I can't image they wanted it to taste this way. No date on the can, bought the same day it was tried, April 16 2017.

Looks like a stout. Doesn't taste like a stout. The label says it is on the light side. That being said, I still expected it to taste "stoutier". Tasted sort of like if Budweiser made a light stout. Not recommended.

Draft at Foxfire Grille, Snowshoe Mountain, WV. Has a fairly grapefruity hop aroma with a dash of roasted coffee thrown in. The body is dark brown to black and the finger sized tan head fades immediately. Fore is grapefruit and mild roast. Thin body. Sort of a black pale ale, but not a particuarly good pale ale....and a fairly crappy stout.

Canned 05/06/15

Pours a dark black body but small head. Flavor is weak charcoal, very watery and the feel is a little bit chalky. Totally not what i expect from an oatmeal stout.

Maybe this one had been sitting around for too long before I opened it... tried it out of the bottle at a ski resort in WV. Tasted a little too light and watery for a stout. A little toasty with notes of chocolate, but lacked the heaviness I've come to associate with stouts.

Mountain State Oatmeal Stout

Had fresh, in a mason jar, at the brewery.

A: pours pitch black with very little head. The mason jar probably isnt helping with head retention... 3.0

S: Roasted Malts present but a bit "watery". Not the strong nose that I like. 3.0

T: roasted malts present, but not overpowering. Bitterness on the back end keeps this beer balanced. Oatmeal flavor can be hard to find... 3.0

M: thin and light. A bit watery. 2.5

D: reasonable. Would have another, but not if better options were present. 3.0

appearance: pours a dark black, clear and transparent brown when edges held to light, light carbonation, slight bubbly creamy foam, leaving slight ring of lacing, did not appear to be thicker or more viscous that usual.

smell: roasted malts and oat scent are light but noticeable, no discernable aromas that stand out other than that.

taste: malts are bold yet mild, toasty oats with very slight notes of coffee, the taste of the alcohol is there and the hops contribute to an adequate bitter finish.

drinkability: nothing to rave about, but for a basic oatmeal stout, it has all of the elements.

Had this on tap at a restaurant in Harper's Ferry. Was excited to try some new WVA beer in a style I dig.

Poured black with a moderate creamy tan head that stuck around for a while. Minimal lacing, but a nice looking beer.

Aroma was my favorite part of the brew. Mostly sweet malt balanced with toasty grains, with just a hint of grass and spice.

Flavor was balanced roastiness, a little malt sweetness and appropriate bitterness - a nice stab at style. Until, oh wait, a nasty finish of cooked vegetables comes through at the end. Unfortunately, the off flavor really killed the drinkability for me.

Mouthfeel was solid, appropriate moderate chewiness, very smooth, for an oatmeal stout.

This would have been a solid brew sans the off vegetal flavors...

Bottle share, thanks to Jeremy. And a tick for WV. Black, but kind of flat, toasty but dull. Dry finish, sort of metallic. Must be made out of coal...

Had on tap at the brewery. Pour is dark hazy honey brown. Nose has nutty and caramel malt with a floral green hop balance. Taste is sweet, loads of caramel, lightly nutty, faint citrus, hop sweetness, herbal and green with light peppery spice and lingering bitterness. Body is syrupy, decent carb, fairly dry in the finish.
