Oatmeal Stout by Blue Point Brewing Company

Off to New Brunswick we went to try a new place for lunch.  The George Street Ale House just opened its doors in January.  They have a nice selection of craft beer on tap and even more in bottles.  I figured why not have a nice pint and a burger to end the first quarter of my quest to drink 365.

Beer #91 is Oatmeal Stout by Blue Point Brewing Company.  This beer is an Oatmeal Stout with an ABV of 4.5% that is brewed on Long Island in the great state of New York, the Empire State.

The waitress delivered the beer to me in a Blue Point pint glass.  The stout was dark, almost black but not quite.  The head was small and tan and it left some nice residue on the glass as I drank it.  I took a whiff, the nose was very muted.  I could pick out some roasted malts and a bit of chocolate but that was about it.  I took a swig and was disappointed.  It had a very light coffee taste with just a bit of sweet roasted malts and not much of anything else.  I didn’t pick up the oatmeal or any of the chocolate I got in the nose.  The mouthfeel was light and watery with very little in the way of carbonation.  It was easy to drink but I wasn’t hankering for another.

This was an average Oatmeal Stout at best.  Breakfast Stout by Founders is a much, much better beer of this style.  This was a disappointing way to finish off the first quarter of my 365.  The food on the other hand was very good.
