4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Bottle. Pours a clear dark black with tan milky head. Aroma is roasted oats and chocolate. Taste is very creamy with toasted oatmeal, chocolate, and a little bitterness. Excellent brew.
Re-rate: Tried this on cask at the brewery. Wow, very good. Very smooth.

hands-down their best beer, worth stopping in for. A low ABV and one of three good casks on that night. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Very dark brown, with a delightful bubbly mocha head, lace. Roomish temperature, it would have been interesting to have it a bit colder and then go through a flavour range. Tastes of chocolate and licorice along with mouthfeel of oatmeal. Sourish finish.

Dark black with off-white, getting towards brown, head. Beautifully creamy, silky oatmeal mouthfeel. Sweet without being cloying. Sweet chocolate, some roast, some bread. Lingering bittersweet finish. Seasonal brew, available through the winter months, and just what I need to get through a stupidly-cold January night in New England. IMO, the Pint’s best brew.

This offering from the People’s Pint pours a delicious onyx black with a tan head that starts thick and frothy but dwindles down to a thin lace. The aroma is sweet, oats, caramel, chalky powdery essence, chocolate, and herbs, but hard to depict. The taste starts chocolate malt upfront, a hint of sourness is present but nothing that makes the beer off. The body is syrupy, well crafted, playful and makes me think about every sip cause there is something new each time. Overall this is a good oatmeal stout one that I will be going back to.

On cask at the brewpub. Nice, crisp heart fall soul-warming roast aroma. The cask lightness really made this one drinkable, while satisfying the craving for dark, dark, dark beer. Balanced.

Totally natural, delicious sweet stout with just a hint of acridness to balance the sweetness. Creamy body, so quaffable.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2006 i have tried several of this brewery’s offerings that are available at the bottle shop i work at. This one is my favorite. Nice chocolatey, roasted oatmeal flavor with a very smooth finish. Good Balance--Not overly sweet like some sweet stouts. Now I want to venture down to Greenfield and try this on tap!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle via trade with 46er3498 - Thanks Tom! - Pours black with a short offwhite head that stays only briefly. Aromas of chocolate, oatmeal, and roasted malts. Flavor is milk chocolate, lots of roasted malts, and oatmeal. Rather light in body for a stout and somewhat watery on the palate. Dry finish and a lingering sweet aftertaste. Not too bad..

Growler from the source. Filled my pint glass with this bewitched black/brown (mostly black) potion. The 1/4" head faded pretty quickly into a nice thin ring that leaves some nice lacing along the edges. Coffee, chocolate, licorice and a nice subtle hint of oatmeal in a very mild aroma. Bitter sweet taste. of oatmeal and coffee with the tiniest hint of oatmeal and licorice. A nice after taste that doesn’t last for more than a minute or two. Silky smooth feel with a really nice thickness without being at all overwhelming. This is a mouthful at a time beer. No sipper, no gulper. But you should sit back and enjoy.
