Pint on tap at the source restaurant in Cabo San Lucas. The only stout of my long liver-shredding investigation of the beers of the Baja, this one is an opaque brown-black with a finger of creamy tan colored head. Very sweet nose, with a predominant chocolate raisin element that carries forward onto the palate, black coffee, brown sugar, and a faint whiff of ash. No ash in the flavor however, which is a notably sweet meld of the aforementioned chocolate-covered raisins (this one is fruitier than expected), roasted coffee substitute, light cream, and a tinge of earthy English hops. Some diacetyl that amplifies the sweetness. If there is a clear knock here its that the body is too thin. Great creamy mouthfeel nonetheless. Oat astrigency in the finish. This beer would be underrated and underappreciated were it better known.

Black pour, thin tan head. Smoky coffee aroma. Very heavy on the coffee flavor. Little creaminess in the mouthfeel, which was probably the most enjoyable aspect of this one. Overall, Not my cup of tea.

A: a very deep brown, almoust completely black, is totally opaque but not hazy, the head is one finge and presents a brownish color, but dissappears a little bit fast, there is no perceptible carb

S: some toffe, roast, coffe, chocolate

T: is has a full body, the oatmeal is present and works fine, the flavour is as the smell, the coffee is awesome, altough the mouthfeel is kind of strange it feels a little acidity and crisp on tongue not sure if its a good sign

Dark, with a quickly fading head. No lacing, but the color is quite pretty.

Smells like roasted coffee, and a bit of dark chocolate comes out as it warms. It smells good, but it's fairly one dimensional. Tastes roasty with a bitter finish. A tad soapy for my liking. The midpalate is tart, but not objectionably so.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, not as creamy as I'd hope for from an oatmeal stout. Appropriate carbonation.

I liked it, but I didn't love it. It's a good stout, but maybe not a great oatmeal stout? Still, I almost bought a growler of it just for a change of pace.
