This meal in a mug is now brewed year-round. Generous usage of roasted malt and an array of Carmel malts gives this Chocolate Oatmeal Dry Stout a coffee, maple, smooth chocolaty flavor.

Dark brown/black and very opaque. A light khaki color 2 finger head. A pleasant roasted malt aroma with some coffee and chocolate afternotes. Nice and smooth. You get the roasted malt and chocolate but it's a nice subtle flavor with a coffee back end. If a stout could be sessionable this is it. Light bodied for a stout. Light carbonation.

Ratings are correct below, but I changed some marks above to make the final rating as correct as possible with Beer Advocate's "revamped" system. The 3.76 overall rating is correct.

Type: 22-oz. bottle
Glass: Manzanita pint glass
From: Alpine Beer Company Pub in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $4.99
Purchased: Dec. 18, 2014
Consumed: Dec. 18, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a pitch black color with two fingers of tan, frothy head. Great layered, spiderweb, foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention all the way down. (Sight - 4.38)

Smelled toffee, caramel, roasty nuts, dark chocolate, light hazelnut, espresso, dark chocolate milk, faint vanilla, coffee malts and chocolate ice cream. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted a tad better than the nose, pretty good actually. Got dark chocolate, roasty coffee beans, roasted nuts, toffee, caramel, light Rolos candy, espresso, vanilla beans, chocolate ice cream, light smokinees, some bitter crayon and chocolate syrup. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.63)

A pretty good stout overall. Initially liked the taste, but not as good as I thought after a few sips. (Overall - 3.75)
