A good standard oatmeal stout from Mendocino. This one pours a dark brownish black with a
huge tan head that dies down to a nice thin layer and decent clinging lacing. Nose of deep
dark chocolate, caramel, and coffee. Smooth oatey goodness brings this one full circle to bring
about a roasted coffe and dark chocolate flavor up front and on the back with a nice smooth
mouthfeel and a light bitter chocolate aftertaste. Very pleasing for the stout lovers out there,
with the added smoothness that oatmeal brings. A most solid stand by stout.

03/18/14 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Not what I expected. Most oatmeal stouts I've tried are very smooth & on the creamy side. This taste is much less viscose & a tad bitter, almost acidic. Not bad but with a 6% ABV the cost in terms of my alcohol consumption 'allowance' out weighs the enjoyment factor. Gnome sane?

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.
