hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2006
On tap at the Springfield, PA location. On the beer menu as "Uncle Festerís Oatmeal Stout". Poured a dark brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate and roast. Tastes of very light oats, chocolate, caramel, and a very light coffee bitter finish.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2009
On tap at the Cambridge location (250909). Very dark, very smooth with a creamy head (presumably nitro dispense). Some chocolate with touches of burnt malt. Rather restrained in the flavour department. Quite sweet. Pleasantly drinkable but a bit short of depth of flavour to counterbalance the sweetness.

PorterPounder (5363) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2004
On tap at Washington D.C. location. Has a slightly stale aroma, reminiscent of overripe milk. Decent dark appearance with a creamy off-white head. Has a slight coffee bitterness to it with some underlying cocoa notes. Too thin of a mouthfeel for a stout. Had much better stouts.

egajdzis (5270) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2004 Poured black with a dark tan head. It had a sweet roasted aroma of hops and a taste of chocolate, roasted barley, and oatmeal. I was hoping they'd have this on cask, but they got rid of their cask taps recently!

TheBeerGod (5178) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2004
Had this at John Harvards in Washington DC on 4-24-04. Dark brown to almost black with a foamy tan head. Creamy, roasted malt aroma with some milk chocolate notes. Creamy mouthfeel with more malt and bittersweet chocolate. Finish is some and contains light bitterness towards the end. Good beer!

TomDecapolis (4437) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Rating #900...made a trip over to John Harvards in Springfield with my brother-in-law...kind of disappointing overall. This one was the best of the 8 sampler I had. Billed as "Uncle Festerís Oatmeal Stout. Poured a dark brown with red when held to the light with an average light tan creamy and lightly lacing head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, lactose and light coffee. Flavor of light coffee, roast and cocoa.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Sample at the JH in Harvard Square, Cambridge. Thick slowly-diminishing head with huge lace over a midnight body...roasty, semi-sweet cocoa nose, lightly vinous...body much more grapy, sweet chocolate at the front but sour wine turning vinegary towards the finish, thin and syrupy...starts ok but ends up being fairly gross.
