From one of favorite breweries, Rogue, from Oregon. Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout is my standard for Oatmeal Stout, and this is almost as good. Rogue seems to alway knows how to make sure the brew has character. This outmeal stout is smooth, and, at the same time, has that kick that Rogue loves to add. Pours thick, little lacing or head, a bit musty espresso followed by a slight bitterness. Excellent, maybe great, but not perfect.

12oz bottle, no freshness date
A 4.25 - thick and black, creamy light brown head hangs around for awhile
S 4.25 - roasty, chocolate, oat, smoke, earth
T 4.25 - roasted barley, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, oats, earthy
M 4.25 - creamy and smooth, fullish body, very balanced, finishes semi-bitter and pretty clean with some slightly chalky dark cocoa lingering
O 4.25 - very impressive oatmeal stout. I don't know why I don't go for more Rogue beers, but for some reason I don't.

Roasty and bitter, but there's not enough depth here for me. Would like some sweetness or something else (vanilla, toffee, hops?) to distinguish this beer. As it warms up, the coffee turns more towards espresso. Wish it were not just a one-note beer.

I probably would never visit this again, although it's perfectly drinkable. There are better stouts for the money (looking at SN Stout)
