On tap at BJs in Lewisville. Replaced the Grand Cru which was a little better. Black in color with a decent head. Light coffee and oats in the aroma, could use some more. Taste again shows potential but comes but a little short

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
16 ounce sample on tap at Vacaville BJís. Some anise aroma is present with some ashiness as well. Metallic, leather and vegetal aromas are also appreciated. Moderately transparent mahogany body with a quickly dissipating light tan head. Chocolate, roasted malts to start, which become thin, watery, and rubbery-tasting. Boiled vegetables make a presence late with a light sweetness. No roastiness, no bitterness, virtually no carbonation. Flawed.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Mesa,Az location. Sweet malt aroma with some grainy oats. Black body with tan head. Had a decent cold coffee flavor and medium sweet roast and left a toffee aftertaste on the palate. Chalk board had this listed as 6% and server couldnít tell me if there was any other name attched to just Oatmeal Stout as on board. So this looks like a good spot.
