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.

deyholla (6568) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 16, 2011
Bottle thanks to a trading partner. Pours a near clear deep brown with a light brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma is quite rich with dark chocolate, roasted malts and a bit of a backing dark bread note. Flavor begins with rich roasted malts and is joined by a rich a chocolate note. A nice beer.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
Deep brown pour with a tight tan head. The nose is softly toasty with a light touch of cocoa. Soft and chewy palate with a little bit of toffee. Soft toffee and some lean malt as well. A nice fruity character through the middle of the palate. A little bit of red licorice fruitiness. Interesting stuff.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 19, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark ruby brown with tall, rocky, orange-hued khaki head. The aroma is obvious nuts and berries that I always get from oatmeal; a little bit of chocolate and a slight roasted note are also in there, would make for a good breakfast bar. The flavor is grainy with a slight roasted/burnt character, then some toasted nuts. Some dry, distant cocoa lurks back there somewhere. It finishes with a slight sourness that leaves a woody aftertaste. Pretty good stuff.

Butters (3745) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Very dark brown pour with fair tan head ring that fades quickly. Roasty, almost coffee nose, and the flavor is similar. Some cardboard, astringent. And the finish is old bitter coffee. Silky thin on the tongue. meh. Iíve had better from these guys.

Bottle. Dark brown that letís plenty of light through. Flavors and nose consist of light coffee and milk chocolate. Not a complex beer but very clean, smooth, and sessionable.

CanIHave4Beers (3209) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle from Durhambeer! Pours a deep reddish brown with a medium head and some lace. The aroma is nutty with nice vanilla tones, lightly roasty, with just lots of malty goodness. The flavor is very roasty with some burnt ashy toast lingering in the background throughout. The beer is nutty and plenty fruity with a good deal of chocolate and bitter both from roastiness and moderate hoppiness. Slightly sweet but certainly not cloying. A very nice porter indeed.

devilben02 (275) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Pours a deep chocolate brown with a thick tan, fluffy head. The aroma is clean but earthy, with notes of coffee and milk, along with a kind of mineral quality. The flavor is a little bitter and earthy in a not-entirely-pleasant way at first, with a taste of dry grain husks. As the beer warms, though, it smooths out nicely, and notes of nicely roasted malts and bittersweet milk chocolate come through. The medium-bodied texture is decent, but it seems a little under-carbonated Overall, it is a solid, smooth porter with some nice flavors, but something seems to be missing.

wedgie9 (1860) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Tasted on 1/4/11 from a 12oz bottle sent to me in a trade. Pours a very dark, almost opaque amber with a thin beige head that recedes to a decent collar. The nose is very roasted with some vanilla, nuttiness, and dough yeast. The flavor is roasted and nutty throughout, with light hints of vanilla and cocoa nibs, and a bitter roasted finish. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter roasted and faint vanilla finish.

NachlamSie (2749) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2010
12 oz. bottled in October 2010, purchased at Bruisiní. Pours pretty dark with some ruby highlights. A small ring of tan head forms. The aroma is chocolaty with nice oat goodness. Very light hints at dark roasted coffee are also apparent. The flavor is not super heavy, but there is plenty of bittersweet roastiness and oat smoothness to entertain my palate. Dark chocolate flavors are also pleasant. Itís a really solid, middle-of-the-road example of the style. I fail to understand the score of 65.
