On tap at Village Draft House.

A - black with a reddish hue; thin, soft layer of brown head

S - roasted malts, faint charcoal, a hint of chocolate

T - creamy, roasted malts, a bit bitter, a hint of coffee

M - medium to full bodied, smooth, a bit crisp, maybe a little overcarbonated

This was a nice, easy to drink, stout. The oats did a great job of adding a bit of smooth, creamyness to the texture which enhanced the drinkability for me. I felt this beer was just slightly overcarbonated. The carbonation was crisp which I thought worked against my palate and detracted from the flavor a bit. Otherwise, yet another solid New Holland offering.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours completely black, with a nice frothy very long lasting head. Aroma is of roasted chocolate, coffee, and molasses. Slight bready aroma. Taste is similar, coffee and chocolate character right up front, oats and bread. Mouthfeel is very thick and creamy. Medium carbonation, and full bodied. Nice toasted malty finish with slight bitterness, overall a very well done stout.

Pitch black appearance with a frothy tan colored head. Rolled oats, wheat bread, dark chocolate, Roasted coffee beans and rich molasses are all apparent and comfortably dominant in the aroma. Soft onset of bittersweet chocolate and molasses with a thick roasted backbone on the first sip. Oatmeal, bready malts and some hints of fermented fruit make their way into the body. Chocolaty, toasty finish. Really great oatmeal stout, highly recommended!
