Appearance: Deep brownish black with a good head of tan foam and good lacing. Noticeable carbonation trying to hide in the darkness.

Smell: Coffee, chocolate, roasted malts.

Taste: Coffee, roasted malts, bitter chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with quite a bit of bitterness in the finish.

The Verdict: Not bad. As with most of Mendocino's offerings, it is a decent example of the style but not much more. In other words: average.

Pours black with a three finger tan mocha head. Smells roasty and nutty like chocolate, annis, maybe a little coriander. The flavor is okay. A little things for my taste. Also there is a bit of an off flavor that I can't quite put my finger on.

A good standard oatmeal stout from Mendocino. This one pours a dark brownish black with a
huge tan head that dies down to a nice thin layer and decent clinging lacing. Nose of deep
dark chocolate, caramel, and coffee. Smooth oatey goodness brings this one full circle to bring
about a roasted coffe and dark chocolate flavor up front and on the back with a nice smooth
mouthfeel and a light bitter chocolate aftertaste. Very pleasing for the stout lovers out there,
with the added smoothness that oatmeal brings. A most solid stand by stout.

03/18/14 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Not what I expected. Most oatmeal stouts I've tried are very smooth & on the creamy side. This taste is much less viscose & a tad bitter, almost acidic. Not bad but with a 6% ABV the cost in terms of my alcohol consumption 'allowance' out weighs the enjoyment factor. Gnome sane?
