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!

Bottle expertly smuggled cross country by my brother, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours the darkest shade of brown with faint wisps of garnet highlights on the edges. A creamy beige head rises upon first pour but falls to a cap rather quickly. Sweet sugary malt mixed with caramel chocolate and roast waft out of the glass in waves toward my nostrils. My taste buds become enthralled with waves of flavor starting with earthy caramel and brown sugar, segue into chocolate and roasted grains, followed by hints of dark fruits and earthy hops and finishing with a long lingering roast. Medium to thick body with a light level of carbonation and silky creamy mouthfeel. WOW is what I said after the first sip and now I'm trying to figure out why I haven't heard of this brewery before. This is a great example of a well crafted oatmeal stout!

A: Light black, with a brown hue, clean lacing that is mildly sticky.

S: Scents of medium roasted coffee, light cacao dark choclate, and some grain.

T: Mirrors the nose, also roasted malt, mild cream, touch of light vanilla, and grains.

M: Light carbonation, semi sweet, light dryness on the finish.

O: Quite good, and my favorite of all the Figueroa mountain beers. It reminds me of Velvet Merlin a bit, being it's an oatmeal stout, and about the same in ABV. They don't taste the same per se, but this has a similiar degree of complexity, but is still a low abv beer, and not a dry irish stout either. Well done.

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.

Very nice oatmeal stout that won a Bronze at the 2011 GABF. Pours a dark brown cola color with a light tan head; some lacing clings to the glass. Pleasant aromas of roasted malts, smoked almonds, coffee and oats. The taste is full-flavored for it's 5.6% abv. Roasted nuts, cola, coffee, and some gently bittering cocoa on the finish. Oats add to a pleasant creaminess in the mouth. I've tried this beer on-tap at the brewery but preferred this bottled version. Big tasting and easy drinking.
