Pours a nice thick brown/black with a one finger head that fizzed away rather quickly. Smells of dark chocolate, malt, and oatmeal. I also got some bitter coffee notes off the nose. Just from the look and the smell I knew it was gonna be good. Taste was similar to the smell: definitely some dark chocolate and coffee. The oatmeal wasn't prevalent until the aftertaste which was quite pleasant. The mouthfeel was mellow, typical for a stout, low carbonation which made it smooth but not so smooth that it was like a nitro stout. Overall, I think this is one of the better oatmeal stouts I've ever had. Everyone at Beaver Street raves about the R & R Stout and I can see why. If you're ever in Flagstaff stop off at Beaver Street to try this beer.

Had this at the brewpub last night for dinner for $4.50 for a pint i believe.

Beer poured black as night with a nice tan head that left lacing behind.

Nose is roasted malts with some hints of cocoa.

Taste is cocoa roasted malts with a wee bit of hopping to keep the sweetness at bay.

Mouthfeel is nice and smooth with a medium body like an oatmeal stout should be.

I have had this several times over the years and finally getting around to reviewing this. Overall this is a very nice representation of the style, definitely try it if you stop in at the brewpub!

Served in a pint glass at the Beaver Street brewpub.

Deep, near black color; clear with dark brown highlights at the edges and a modest but durable tan head. Nice lacing left behind.

Aroma: Mildly sweet dark roast malts with oatmeal and a hint of coffee.

Flavor: similar to nose, with good sweet/bitter balance despite a solid espresso note in the finish. Oats round out the flavor and add some nice balance. Finish has a nice lingering roasted grain and light coffee flavor.

M: Medium carbonation Clean and dry finish.

O: a very fine, somewhat Irish style, Oatmeal stout. Recommended.
