3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the tap room. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium creamy tan head that recedes steadily to a film. Patchy lacing. Roast malt, coffee and chocolate in the nose. Light-bodied with a roasty coffee and malt character, with mild chocolate in the background. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich deep dark brown body with a thin one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, earth, nuts and a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied; Large roastiness throughout with a big sweetness of caramel and toffee on the finish. Aftertaste shows a lot of oatmeal and nuts with a big bitterness and assertive nuts. Overall, a decent sweet stout with a good flavour and nice complexity. Great to try at the brewpub, but not a beer really worth drinking. I sampled this pint on draught for US$4.00 at the brewpub here in Lone Tree, Colorado on 08-June-2014.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
5 oz pour at the brewery. Pours a cola brown with a small head. Aroma is pretty good, though a little thin. Sharp, instant coffee notes mix with smooth oatmeal and a dash of chocolate. A few sips reveals my qualm with this beer: its watery palate. Given the name "full bodied oatmeal stout" I was expecting just that. The mouthfeel is very light and the flavors don’t fully develop as a result. This kind of palate could work for a less malt-forward beer, but it’s highly distracting in this case. The finish is quick, leaving traces of cheap chocolate and oatmeal. I’m perfectly fine with lighter offerings, but even a pale ale or pilsner would raise an eyebrow being this watery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2015 August 13th, 2013 - Lone Treets Toots is a fitting end to a second visit and another line of samplers. It’s a rich and ebony colored brew, shining with an onyx sheen, and showing off its rich aroma of coffee, molasses and a nice rum-raisin element too. The palate is smooth with a nitro like consistency, thin and rich, with a strange off taste in the middle. This off-putting sour note recovers with a nice roasted aftertaste. On this particular round, the Toots ended up being my least favorite of the tasters I ordered - a surprise, given my unabashed favoritism towards darker ales. But I suspect other batches might correct that curious twang I found in the middle.
December 28th, 2011 - After wading through a bevy of light beers, some better than others, I finally arrive in dark and uncharted territories. Next on the tasting line up is Lone Tree Brewing’s charmingly named Toots’ Full-bodied Oatmeal Stout. I have no idea who Toots is, but I applaud them for exhorting anybody with the equipment to produce an oatmeal stout. The smell of rich espresso creeps and crawls from the top of the glass, waxed and smoothed by the sugary depths of dark chocolate. Like the aroma, the mouthfeel is smooth and velvety, almost like a nitro brew. The sweet dial has been pushed up a little in the flavor, where I catch the dulcet tastes of sweetened coffee with lots of cream. Some of this recedes in the impressively long aftertaste where the tongue is left with an echo of milk chocolate. This oatmeal stout is sweet, but above all it is smooth.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pour is deep brown/mahogany with a small cream head and great lacing. Roasty, bready, malty aroma - light vanilla, and cocoa - somewhat faint. Taste is big roast, light chocolate, a hint of vanilla, coffee, and wood with a medium bitter/roasted finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Nothing really special about this one and a bit thin, but an easy drinking stout nonetheless.
