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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

On tap at their Orlando, Fl. location. Dark black pour, nice lacing mocha colored head. Pick up a bit of a nitrogen induced aroma of fresh lake water. Flavor has some solid roasted dry notes with some smokiness and bitter coffee to round it out. Thickish mouthfeel. All around a pretty solid stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Cincy location. Pours dark brown with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is roasted malt with a sweetness from the oatmeal and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is drier than the nose may suggest. Pretty average roasted malt, oatmeal,and a touch of chocolate. Medium bodied, nothing is really jumping out at me with this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at BJís in Phoenix (Desert Ridge). Poured an opaque black color. The head was limp, light tan, and left no lace behind. Aroma was of dark chocolate with a hint of coffee. Sweet on the tongue with delicate, but strange acidity. I tasted chocolate and hints of molasses and coffee. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.
