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!

2004 draught Cambridge. Pours a dark, nearly opaque black with light burgundy hints on the edges and a small tan head. Aroma is light, slight oat notes and brown sugar at the most. Flavor, however is quite an improvement on the normal flavor I get from this brewery(which is usually lacking). Good oat grist chewiness to the body, dark malts balanced with a firm but light sweetness while there is an ever so subtle prune-like or vinousness to the finish. Lightly floral hops and just a well-rounded flavor overall. Grows better as it warms, which takes a while as this is served incredibly cold. Smooth medium body, low carbonation, light roast, low astringency. Of my recent visit, this is the only thing I would order again.

I have a hard time distinguishing all the oatmeal stouts out there, and this one didnít stand out from the others (insert your favorite standard description here). However, itís a nice selection from a microbrew that doesnít have a lot of excellent beers.

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.

Black, whispy tan head producing a bit of disappearing lace, roasted and chocolate aroma, rich roasted malt flavor, touch of chocolate, some oily oatmeal character, non-offensive malt bitterness that slowly grows until it becomes offensive

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!
