3.01/5  rDev -17.3%

Poured dark opaque brown with dark tan head, 6 fingers of dark tan head. way over-carbonated. I've drain poured over carbonated home brews that had less carbonation than this. I let it sit 15 minutes and repoured... still 4 fingers of foam.

Aroma is steel, grass and grains. Sadly the nice grain notes are not the centerpiece.

Flavor starts to make up for the two fatal flaws... some clean hops, chocolate malt, coffee and chocolate hints

Mouthfeel is lively with all the CO2, not bad.

Overall, a nice attempt flavor wise, but not something I'd grab again. I have to assume I may have a flawed bottle, as others are complaining about the lack of head (it all ended up in my bottle!), and generally I like Tenaya's offerings

3.18/5  rDev -12.6%

Dark brown with amber glints in the Duvel tulip. Modest nose of dark roasted grains. Not much in the way of foam though the carbonation in the mouth is quite pleasantly fizzy.

Smooth and on the grainy side. Quite dry with a fleeting malty richness. This tastes more like an amber ale with the addition of blackened barley. A hint of winey mouthfeel. Not one of the better stouts, but maybe the oatmeal just doesn't help a lighter stout with less of the dark malty backbone. Not much bitterness. This tastes more like a Schwartzbier topped off with a little Amber Ale.

From the 22 oz bottle bought at Whole Foods in Chandler for $5.49.

Las Vegas is known for a few things, but beer is not one of them. Tenaya Creek hopes to change my mind. And with 22 ounces, there's plenty of nectar to convince me. On to the beer:

Half an inch of beige head rests on top this nearly black beer. Retention is okay, spots of lace stick to the glass. The aroma offers the sweet creaminess of oats, and some roast from the stout. Not bad, I say. Many oatmeal stouts go to the sweeter side, though Hauling Oats straddles the middle of bitter and sweet. Some sweet oats attempt to bring the beer to the sweet side, though roasty and astringent malt brings it back to the center. A squeeze of hops add a refreshing change of pace to this stout, as for a moment I though it was going to continue as a seesaw between the malt and oats. It's medium bodied with a lower intensity of carbonation, which gives the beer more of a coating texture.

It doesn't break my thinking of what Vegas stands for, though I'll take an oatmeal stout as a secondary attraction.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 22/12/13

A the darkest brown very deep dark cola edge, two fingers of mocha foam has decent retention hanging on for a few sips and leaves a couple random patches of lace

S nutty, chocolate syrup, root beer, some cold coffee, faint tea bag, and a little burnt wood and dark fruit

T more of the same really, a little sweetness, burnt coffee, some burnt brown sugar, decent oatmeal stout

M lighter side of medium, not that thick for the color, lots of bubbles they flatten out quickly, a little slick after the fact with some lingering char

O decent brew, dark roast plays a big role, not lacking anywhere but nothing really stands out either

one of those beers that I'd happily drink if there was nothing else around, nothing memorable but nothing to be ashamed of either
