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.

Draft. Pitch black pour with a creamy tan head. toasted malt, dough and chocolate aroma. Rich and creamy with some slight chocolate flavors. Dry and somewhat dusty with a nice even, toasted malt body. Clean finish.

marcus (8821) - 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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
(On tap) Completely black and opaque with a light brown head leaving a solid lacing. Aroma of burned malts with a smoky edge. Fairly full-bodied with fat, burned - almost tar-like - malts. Flavours of licorice, tobacco, coffee - the works! Some malty bitterness in the finish. A very rich, rewarding and complex stout. I really wouldn’t call it a Sweet Stout though. 210307

CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Deep and dark like a stout should be. Coffee being the primary. Nice dry finish and a really good stout. If you like a dark beer, this and the porter were my favorites there.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Opaque, black with a tan head. Smelled of coffee and anise. Dry on the tongue with a roasty flavor accented by dark chocolate. Roasty and bitter at the end.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 7, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with an off-white head. Outstanding and complex finish that I really can’t identify. Has all the requisite flavors of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. I drank this while eating Hama Oysters and it was awesome.
