Received as an extra from Tieman. Thanks again Dan!
Poured into Jester King tulip glass...
Appearance: Classic, deep, and opaque obsidian color. Small mocha colored head. Very attractive stout.
Smell: Lots of cocoa, coffee, some smoke, nice roasted notes, I get a little brown sugar, and the slightest hop presence.
Taste: Great roasted malt and smokiness right away, followed by coffee, chocolate, hops, and a bit of an astringency (certainly not overly deterring though, but there regardless). There are some subdued sweet notes on the finish, but they seem tame thanks to the coffee and roast flavors. Really nicely integrated stout, everything is working together.
Mouthfeel: Really nice, mellow carbonation. The body of the beer isn't thin and isn't overly viscous; it's really at a great moderate body. I keep coming back to the term 'classic' to describe this beer. It seems to epitomize the style, and allows for a very enjoyable and easy drinking experience.
Overall: A wonderfully executed stout. I would gladly have this again. I was lucky enough to try this brewery's "Hoppy Poppy" along side this (thanks again Dan), and am really impressed with Figueroa Mountain's offerings.

Pours a cola color with a tight tan head that leaves little bits of lacing.
Smells of coffee and roasted notes.
Tastes of the roasted notes with a slight sweetness. Coffee and cocoa notes lead off with a slightly burnt overtone. Slight roasted and earthy bitterness comes through. Mild brown sugar sweetness comes through along with some of the oatmeal. I also pick up dark fruit notes as it warms which complements some of the sweetness.
Mouthfeel is medium-full with a smooth amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is a good oatmeal stout, but is not quite cost efficient ($9 a bomber).

22oz bottle split two ways – standard pint glass
Notes from 10/18/13
A: Inky black body, dark as can be with an oily sheen. Fairly poor head retention and virtually no stick or cling to the glass.
S: Rich espresso melds with cocoa and dark malted grains with a faint hint of smoke on the trailer. Fairly clean aromatics with some deep roast character.
T: Dark roast grain and toasted cereals fuses with some smoky espresso beans and a touch of bakers chocolate. Nothing harsh or abrasive here. I am getting some faint dark fruity esters as well. There is a low amount of hop bitterness and no alcohol comes across in the flavor. Very smooth balance and rich robust flavors. Really quite tasty.
M: Somewhat light in body but with a very smooth and creamy texture. Lush and velvety with a light drying finish and clean exit.
D: This is a great rendition of the style. I simply do not comply with some of these other reviews. Perhaps they have fine tuned the recipe? Great developed flavor profile here and not super dry or astringent with the roast. Could possible use a little more body but otherwise really well done.

Another good oatmeal stout. Nice appearance, wonderful smell, awesome taste, hits of chocolate coffee light oak very nice. Not the best oatmeal stout in the world but worth picking up if you have the chance. A Top Ten Stout!!! And that says a lot because I love stouts! Eat Drink and be Merry!

Thanks for sharing this, Javi.
Pours dark brown in color with a finger of khaki head. A strong roasted malt aroma with a touch of smoke and char. There is a little bit of coffee grounds in there and a hint of dark chocolate. The flavor is more of the same. Lots of coffee grounds and heavily roasted malt. An almost charred flavor with a hint of smoke and coffee. Light in body with medium carbonation.
