COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a traditional English-Styled Oatmeal Stout using 10% flaked cold rolled oats. It has rich coffee flavors with mild cocoa tones. El Toro Negro has a smooth, mild bitterness, full body and is very drinkable.

Alot of roasted barley flavor and nose. Not as smooth as one would like a beer in this style.

Very full cocoa and roasty nose over its perfect dark foam. Semi-dry with a bit of light fine particulate texture finishing bitter and some creaminess. Very well-balanced and completely delicious. I underestimated this one or it’s gotten better.

I found this to be a pretty decent Oatmeal stout. Nice roasted quality and the sourness wasn’t as bad ice cold. At room temp you could definately taste some sour but not destructive flavors. Small brewery so I think they did well.

Motor-oil hue with brown head. Sharp and clean feel. Sort of roasty and somewhat sour. Not too flavorful or impressive; not bad, but not great.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2004 The beer after its departure from the 12-ounce brown bottle resides in the glass an onyx color with a modest creamy chocolate colored head, the lace a thick coating to cover the glass. Nose is roasted and toasted grains, coffee and chocolate, sweet and fresh, start is sweet, rich with grain and the top moderate to full in its feel to the palate. Finish has a delectable acidity, the hops pleasing in their spiciness, quite dry and linger aftertaste, a nice drinking beer.
