The aroma of the Mendocino Oatmeal Stout promises lots of oatmeal flavor along with oily hops and perhaps some molasses. Full of big, earthy flavors, this is a very smooth stout. Roasted oats dominate (as they should), followed by bittersweet chocolate, bourbon, and wood. Floral hops make a nice presence at the end, but don't overshadow anything.

Quite quaffable, but I wouldn't be opposed to more oatmeal in this

Sampling right now on 3/6/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a really dark brown/almost black in color with close to a 1-finger beige head that settles down to around the sides on top. Some spotty lacing is seen with each sip but not a lot. The aroma is of roasted malts and coffee for the most part. the taste is pretty much the same with a hint of bitter-sweet chocolate in the mix as well. A real light bitter finish.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch and a half tan head after a strong pour. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, oats, coffee, and chocolate. I think the taste is just like the aroma, except that that there's a bit of dark fruitiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and has a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a good Oatmeal Stout, definitely worth trying.
