ROGUE (2200) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - DEC 29, 2009
On tap at brew house. Poured a dark black with a creamy, tan head and decent lacing. Smells of roasted malt and faint chocolate. Taste is roasty with hints of chocolate and coffee. Some hopppiness is there to balance the malt. Dry finish. Medium bodied and velvety smooth.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. Watery mouthfeel, chocolate aromas with some light creamy oat aromas. Flavor is chocolate malt with caramel light creamed coffee. Rather mediocre

chriso (7513) - 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.

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

Dark brown color with mostly lasting, light-brown head. Minimal translucence. Aroma is of faint coffee notes, provided by the burnt malts. Initial taste is sweet, moving quickly to a light bitter finish with a short duration. Beer presence leaves, leaving a chocolate taste. Light on the mouth, it has a watery texture with faint carbonation.

Taste does not hold up to the promise of the appearance and the aroma. Too thin for a stout. Reviewed on January 20th, 2007.

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.

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.
