COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not for the faint hearted! Our stout rewards the palate with robust flavor of roasted malts (malts are roasted like coffee beans) and heavy hops. A creamy smooth surprise.

Very nice stout. Rich thick black color with a gorgeous althugh short lived dark chocolatly head. Aroma is malty and moderatly roasted. Flavor is much the same, quite malty, moderatly roasted, tones of chocolate. Light hoppy hints and moderatly sweet.

Everything I’ve consumed from this brewer has been great. I expect nothing less from 8 Ball. Very very Good sweet Stout. Coffee, Chocolate, good hops, malt and pleasantly suprising sweet undertone. Trying to figure out what this is? Maybe its just my palate but I detect a orange taffy like underflavor. Again, it could be my tastebuds. Very potent and has a great full bodied flavor as this drink should. Again, Lost Coast doesn’t disappoint. Great Beer!!!

On tap at the brewpup in Eureka, CA. The best beer that I have tried from this brewer, and one of the best stouts that I have had in a long time. It was very smoky, almost rauchbier-like, but did not exhibit any burnt-bitter notes. Very well done.

Exits the bottle like old oil pouring out of your car’s oil pan; thick and black. Tight dark tan head with aromas of French roast coffee, semi-sweet chocolate and burnt grains. Mouthfeel is full and slick with just the right carbonation. Flavors very intense and sweet; like a mouthful of dark chocolate fudge cake followed by a swig of espresso. Finishes with a touch of burnt malt bitterness which balances out the sweetness just right. A robust Oatmeal Stout indeed!

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 28, 2004
Pours a deep black with a brown head. It passes the flashlight test. Aromas of burnt toast with brown sugar and oatmeal. Very toasty flavors. A huge mouthfeel with possibly a bit too much CO2. Nice hop and black patent finish. This is a very big stout. The flavors of burnt malts stays on the tongue for a long time.

Strong nose of roasted malts giving off an espresso-like aroma. Very sweet at first sip, creamy and rich in the middle. Some dry coffee and grassy hops at the finish. Nice surprise.

06.21.04. Bomber (thanks loweredsixth!). Pours dark, thick, and rich. Medium sized, thick brown head; opaque. Aromas of dark malts, choco. Sweet, roasty flavors, tons of malt. Only slight finishing bite. Very smooth stuff. Coffee flavors emerge with temperature. Palate is thick, coating, and damp when warm, but sort of watery when cool.

Hab40oz (242) - Grants Pass, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2004
a very good stout, great richness and sweet tart. Good choice of hops to make give it a bitter touch from the sweet delicous malts. Pours very dark and thick with a thin brown head. hints of coffee and hazelnut as well as a chocolate taste makes this stout worth the money to enjoy all it has to offer.

Very dark black with a huge (4 finger) brown head. Roasted, chocolate and coffee smells. Tastes of coffee and chocolate. Dry finish. Somewhat of a nice bitter finish.
