Alcohol nose, I was ready to dislike this beer. then I tasted it. It had a strong oatmeal note, like a warm breakfast, with roast malt, and bittersweet chocolat. A lingering finish with a nice hoppiness. Dark colour and a tan head.

This was incredibly rich and tasty. Definitely the best out of everything that I tried. Their is a definite nuttiness that you notice right away,a nd I love that, great malty milk chocolate flavor with some mellow roastiness that just fades right into this full rich velvety mouthfeel. Yum!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Near black colour. Big up front oatmeal aroma with nuts and hints of chocolate and coffee. Incredibly appetizing. Starts off roasty, then fades to a great milk chocolate character - very smooth, sweet and pure. There is a light nuttiness in the finish for variety. Creamy, full mouthfeel. Satisfying light stout with all the elements you want in a traditional oatmeal stout.

On tap at B.J.ís Portland (yes, the Lloyd Center location), sampled 6 August 2004. Lastoís Oatmeal Stout. Deep brown body, thin light tan head. Dry roasted malt aroma took a bit to develop as the beer was served too cold. Enjoyable, rich flavor profile not as thick as Bellís Kalamazoo Stout but extracting the same rich roast complexity, almost bordering on woodiness. Dry chocolate complements the rich roast. Smooth, full finish. No real sweetness for a "Sweet" Stout. Creamy. Call me a fool but this is one of the best in the category.

Lastoís Oatmeal Stout @ BJís Portland - Lloyd Center
Dark brown, not quite black with tan head & some lacing. Very similar to the organic porter. The nose is more creamy leaning towards milk chocolate than raw cocoa. Flavor is about the same. Finishes more sweet & balanced but still too dry.

Tasted at the Eugene Oregon resteraunt. This chain's beer quality tends to very from facility to facility so..
Dark Black color. Medium creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and CHOCOLATE. The chocolate in the aroma is really outstanding. A medium bodied stout. Malts are roasted, coffee and chocolate, slightly sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Nicely balanced, lighter bodied Oatmeal Stout. Not as much chocolate taste in the flavor as I would expect from the aroma, yet more of the oatmeal flavor is noticeable in the taste than the aroma. Very smooth and a touch sweet, as expected. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. It’s a little weird that the special brew of the month of July is an Oatmeal Stout!

Well balanced, but not incredibly complex. Good roasted taste, very drinkable.

this was quite a dissapointing stout to me, I wasnt too impressed with this one. It doesnt really hit your palate and please you that much. I like my stouts witha thick head, and this one lacks that.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin watery body. Little flavor even after waiting 15 minutes for it to warm up a little. Very slight nose. Not a very good rendition of one of my favorite styles.
