Found this beer to be a GREAT let down. Very thin with little flavor.

Poured dark opaque brown with dark tan head, 6 fingers of dark tan head. way over-carbonated. I've drain poured over carbonated home brews that had less carbonation than this. I let it sit 15 minutes and repoured... still 4 fingers of foam.

Aroma is steel, grass and grains. Sadly the nice grain notes are not the centerpiece.

Flavor starts to make up for the two fatal flaws... some clean hops, chocolate malt, coffee and chocolate hints

Mouthfeel is lively with all the CO2, not bad.

Overall, a nice attempt flavor wise, but not something I'd grab again. I have to assume I may have a flawed bottle, as others are complaining about the lack of head (it all ended up in my bottle!), and generally I like Tenaya's offerings

Dark brown with amber glints in the Duvel tulip. Modest nose of dark roasted grains. Not much in the way of foam though the carbonation in the mouth is quite pleasantly fizzy.

Smooth and on the grainy side. Quite dry with a fleeting malty richness. This tastes more like an amber ale with the addition of blackened barley. A hint of winey mouthfeel. Not one of the better stouts, but maybe the oatmeal just doesn't help a lighter stout with less of the dark malty backbone. Not much bitterness. This tastes more like a Schwartzbier topped off with a little Amber Ale.

From the 22 oz bottle bought at Whole Foods in Chandler for $5.49.

This one I was looking forward too, love the label. A dark brown beer with some carbonation viable on the sides. The head is a light tan with OK retention.

Rich roasted malt with coffee, chocolate, oatmeal, yeast caramel, earth, yeast, and some wood.

A rich toasted malt with oatmeal, caramel, earth. Yeast floral, roasted malt, biscuit, and yeast.

The mouthfeel is creamy smooth slightly carbonated and chewy.

This good oatmeal stout my only complaint is I wish the body was a tad bit more stout. Nonetheless it is very drinkable.
