Blue Point Oatmeal Stout Brewed by Blue Point Brewing Company -
Patchogue, New York
Oats aren’t just for breakfast you know? Commonly referred to as a “meal in
a glass,” our Oatmeal Stout is definitely the one meal of the day you should
not miss. A rich, deeply malted extravaganza of a beer, Blue Point Brewing’s
Oatmeal Stout is a dark beer drinker’s dream come true. We use pale,
crystal, chocolate, and roasted malts with just the right amount of flaked
oats added to produce an uncommonly silky brew. This full-flavored and rich
tasting legendary dark beer is a romantically delicious microbrew to share
with someone special, at anytime of the day or evening. 30 IBU. 5.2%
Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 1 finger fairly dense tan head
with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy
lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee,
caramel, oats, toast, light char, herbal, molasses, and dark fruitiness. Nice
aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of oats, roasted malt, chocolate,
caramel, coffee, light char, toast, bread, toffee, light citrus, and light
herbal. Lingering notes of oats, roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, coffee, light
char, and herbal on the finish for a bit. Nice balance and robustness of
flavors; no cloying on the finish at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a
fairly creamy and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well
hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice
oatmeal stout. Nice balance and robustness of flavors; very smooth to drink. A
very enjoyable offering.
Blue Point Brewing 101:
The Blue Point Brewing Company is Long Island’s only microbrewery. It was
founded in 1998 by two long-time friends, Mark Burford and Pete Cotter.
The brewery was inspired by their life-long dream and built from a rare
assemblage of equipment collected from breweries around the country.
Blue Point's storage tanks, fermentation vessels, and other brewing equipment
were also gathered from other breweries like Frederick, LaJolla, Red Hook,
Pilgrim and others.
The brewery’s unique direct-fire brew kettle, dismantled brick by brick from a
brewery in Maryland and rebuilt in Patchogue, imparts a lightly toasted, complex
taste to produce a line of ultra premium microbrews.
Located in the 1970’s Penguin Ice Factory on River Avenue in Patchogue, Blue
Point Brewing Company’s 5000 square foot facility gives them ample space for
brewing 10,000 kegs of beer a year. Kegs from the brewery are unpasteurized, and
delivered cold to ensure they are as fresh tasting as possible-a feature only a
local brewery can offer.
