We are huge dark beer fans and this is our favorite 'every day' stout. Pours beautifully and has that great 'Guinness' appearance. Packed with flavour, never disappoints. We get regular growler fills from Old Saratoga Brewing Co, tasting room. $7

It pours almost black, but in reality it is a very dark brown. It sports a mocha head with moderate retention and excellent lacing that cascades slowly down teh sides of the glass. The aroma carries hints of smoke and dark chocolate. Lots of burnt malt detectable. The taste follows suit. Slight smokiness with a lot of grain. bitter chocolate in teh finish with a slightly sour aspect. the mouthfeel is a little light, but the carbonation follows suit nicely. Very nice beer. hearty, yet surprisingly mellow.

t: Thick and malty. Coffee taste is strong and bitter with nice hop tones. Very rich and firm. Nice strong beer.

One of my favorite oatmeal stouts. I love that it is located locally, and that I can stop in for samples. Their whole line seems to reasonably priced. Last year I only bought a six pack then I found out it was seasonal. This year I already have a case, and I am headed to Minogues for another growler of it Yum!

12oz bottle pulled from fridge and allowed to warm up for about half an hour. no freshness date. poured into a bulb style glass.
pours out a opaque black with 2 fingers of biege creamy expresso like head. faded to a smooth creamy thin layer. just tiny bits of lace. very dark, the color and head are reminiscient of a RIS.
the first thing that jumps out at me in the aroma is smoke. behind that there is some roasted/ burnt malt, and a bit of lacto and oatmeal like creaminess and just a hint of dark fruits.
wow, very tasty stout we got here. follows the aroma with a nice balance of smokey burnt wood, heavily roasted malt, and oatmeal/ lacto creaminess. behind that, theres a bit of dark fruitiness, raisons, dates, figs, etc.
smooth creamy medium body. adequate carbonation for the style.
very drinkable beer, drank 4 of these new years eve with a few other beers no problem. and for 7$ a sixpack, you cant go wrong at all. definatly improved my overall opinion on mendocino brewing company. the welcome addition of smoke really made this beer for me. highly recommended IMHO.
