This was my second tasting at the Four Seasons Brewery - and I was so glad I had chosen this oatmeal stout.

Dark rich in color, almost black, the scent was light in coffee and caramel as was the taste, but it all mixed very well as the stout was like velvet in my mouth. I was impressed as the light carbonation - perfect in my opinion - that just added to the overall experience with this offering. I walked away impressed with this little brewery tucked away in Western PA.

My first beer from Four Seasons Brewing. Easy drinking Oatmeal Stout with hints of chocolate and coffee flavor. Pours dark like Guinness with a nice foamy head. Smooth drinking with hints of chocolate and coffee flavor throughout. Would definately get this one again and would definately go back and check them out again.

Pours a dark brown, almost black color with an off white head. Lacing is evident showing a well hopped, clean, heady brew.

The aroma has the hint of black patent malts and coffee, with some herbal piney hopppiness also.

In the taste, plenty of roast and smoothness from oatmeal, making for a good full bodied stout. Hop presence is strong, with ample herbal, pine and earthy flavors to compliment the bitterness. Still damn smooth, very nice brew.

Very smooth clean taste, no cloying aftertaste, smooth creamy head. Coffee and chocolate notes very well blended making this great with food.

Like all Four Seasons beers, the Dark Side of the Pint oatmeal stout is highly drinkable. Think Guinness, but with more flavor. The beer is black in appearance with a light smokey smell. Unlike many other craft brew stouts, this beer is not particularly strong in chocolate/coffee flavor, which I personally prefer. Dark Side of the Pint is just a good, smooth stout that goes down easy on those cold Latrobe winter nights.
