COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most popular dark beer is a hearty, chewy oatmeal stout (8% oats in the grist). Lots of body, as you would expect coming from the West Coast oatmeal stout tradition. The dark, roasted character is caramel- and chocolatelike with a decided smoothness. Hops are, again, an assortment, and come across mostly in flavor and aroma, not bitterness.

JaBier (4956) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Sample at the brewpub on 8/4/10. Darkest brown/black pour with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasty to the point of ashy with not much else going on. Flavor is equally roasty and ashy with a bit of molasses sweetness in there too.

(10/30/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in San Francisco. 5.6%. Black-color with a brown head. Nice roasty aroma with caramel, coffee, some chocolate, light licorice notes and some faint smoke hints. Sweet flavor with roasted malt, some chocolate, coffee notes, light sugary notes and some fruity notes, Medium-full body. Not bad.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Draft. Brown/black beer with a tan head. Coffee, caramel, and sweet malt aroma. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, big molasses flavor. Medium bodied. Coffee, malt, caramel, and coffee linger with more molassess notes as it warms. Not bad.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Pours black with a dark-brown head (I’m excited already). Flavor is coffee and burnt malt. Just by the smell I know there is a huge quantity of black patent... My tongue drips in anticipation. Flavor is just as I expected huge burnt coffee, flavor is balanced by the full body and sweetness. I was expecting the mouthfeel to be a little silkier since they call this an OATMEAL stout but still REALLY DAMN GOOD!

marcus (6586) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 6, 2007
On tap at Alembic (San Francisco). This dark brown ale poured with a beautiful tan head. The flavor is quite malty with a chalky finish, and there is a carbonated mouthfeel. This is a decent stout, although the flavor is a bit thin.
