COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Old Neighborhood Oatmeal Porter will take you back to the good old days. This classic dark ale is rich and robust, yet silky smooth. Its distinct roasty essence is deliciously balanced with a slight sweetness creating a porter that boasts intense flavors.

Had this one on-tap at City Bev in town. The pour created a massive tan head on top that lingered for most of the session. The frothy cap produced aromas of roasted malt, chocolate powder, and a slightly chicory fade on the finish. Nice toasty nose. The mouth on this one is a bit thin and lacking in carbonation. A little too slick for me, but that could be the fault of the tap, not the beer itself. The flavors are as good as anticipated. Big roasty notes that aren’t charring or unpleasant in any way. Mild chocolate flavors add a touch of sweetness that prevents this beer from becoming too woodsy and burnt. Good balance of flavors going on. There is a slight metallic finish, but it fleets away quickly. This was good, but I’d love to revisit this is in bottle form to see how the mouth is remedied, if at all. This keeps reminding me why ME is one of my fave NC breweries.

Draught. Poured a very dark brown with a very small head to it. Good roasting to this with some other underlying malty tones. Nice and smooth drink.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2013 12oz bottle. Poured into pint glass brownish black color, very little off-white head. Aroma of coffee and smokey malt. Taste adds some light chocolate milk. Lighter then expected but smooth. Not bad.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2012
Bottle from bruisin ales. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Dark chocolate on the nose. Hints of cocoa on the tongue with a slightly bitter finish. Not as silky or as creamy as I was expecting. Solid but not spectacular example of style.

Boring and very simple. Taste is light chewing on oats. Residual sweetness and a bit thin. Oats dominate and its really not an interesting flavor to dominate something.
