Bottle shared with my neighbor, Thanks Bill.

Appearance: dark and creamy with a nice one finger tan head.

Nose: slight chocolate notes with some roast and a touch of sweetness

Taste: thin mouthfeel especially for an oatmeal stout. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, low bitterness

Overall: I'm so used to drinking big Imperial stouts that I forgot how drinkable lower gravity brews can be. I could easily have another pint of this.

A nice little oatmeal stout on tap at Bull Run Restaurant in Shirley MA. Poured into a pint glass, it was dark with cereal malty nose and balanced oatmeal, chocolate, and coffee. found the mouthfeel to be thick and smooth, not watery as others have described, perhaps due to draft.

22 oz bottle was poured into an imperial pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger mocha head that has reduced to a thin layer. It is pitch black with no clarity or bubbles coming up the side of the glass.

Smell: roasted coffee, chocolate, sweet and bready oats, burnt molasses, and some dark fruit aromas.

Taste: Same as above with some lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, lingering bitterness, medium carbonation.

Overall: Not a bad oatmeal, but I would go with others. I was expecting more sweetness from the oats, but I will take it for what it is. Still a good beer though.

Pours dark brown/black with a dark tan head. No lace.

Some molasses and charred malt in the nose.

Nice french roast coffee and dark roasted malt. Some rich sweetness from the malt, and the oatmeal comes thru. Nice bitterness balancing out the end. Not an intense brew though.

A little watery for the style, but still on the full side.

Overall, a good standard oatmeal stout.

22oz bomber poured into an oversized snifter.

A: Opaque black with a quarter inch of beige head. The head sputters out rather quickly. Lacing is sparse and spotty. I'd expect better head formation and retention from an oatmeal stout.

S: Dirty, gritty yeast. Estery smell of white grapes and prunes. Roasted malt scents of fudge brownie and cocoa in the background. Starchy oats. Maybe just a light herbal hop scent.

T: Opens with hints of licorice and black pepper and juicy, slightly tart fruity tastes. Dirty yeast provides a backbone. Grape juice, plum, and tart raspberry. Sweetness comes mid palate with tastes of cola. Cocoa, caramel, and brownie. Turns smokey and starchy toward the finish. The finish is the shining point of this beer. It is smokey, oaty, and layered with chocolatey flavors.

M: Full and relatively thick in the mouth. A bit slick and oily. Almost no carbonation.

O: A fairly mediocre beer. It could do with a little more carbonation. The yeast flavors are a little too dominant, as with many People's Pint beers. There are some lovely malt tastes, but rather than let them be the foundation of the beer, the yeast seems to take on that role.

Notes: Not bad at $6 a bomber if you feel like taking a chance on it, but there are other oatmeal stouts I'd much rather have.
