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.

Tap, Magnolia Pub and brewery, San Fransisico. Nothing spesh. Standard roast and choc, medium bittreness, decent flavours, but perhaps a little too subtle. A bit short and thin.

this wasnt as horrible as most say it is... kind of mellow and smoky, nice and calm and pleasant not over the top or harsh

Tap at brewery: Not an overall great stout. Left a sharp, smokey, burnt, taste. Could have been a bad batch. The Imperial stout at the brewery on tap is much better.

Tower. I did not think this was an oatmeal stout. Too attenuated with metallic flavors. Thin. Coffee and toffee.

Tap. Dark brown color with roasted coffee flavors and a light body for a stout.

Good brown foam but quick to fold, oat creaminess, bit of rye, not much hops but very nice coffee and toffee flavors.
