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.

Papsoe (25088) - 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

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Very black. Milky, toffeeish chocolate aroma. Sweet with near full body and mellow mouthfeel. Notes of tar, inky bitter finish. A bit rough around the edges.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2006
Near black with light chocolate aroma. Chewy, fudgey but a bit harsh on the black malt bitterness. Alcohol creeps in late as well. All over the bloody place.

brokensail (10738) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
A: The pour is nearly black with a towering mocha colored head that slowly dies down. S: Quite chocolatey to begin with, offering up both dark and milk chocolate aromas. There’s a bit of a creaminess to the nose and a nice roasted malt note, with perhaps some burnt sugar. T: Starts off with the roasted malt flavor. Some molasses and dark chocolate follow and coming through a little bit later is a sweeter, creamier, milk chocolate. Not too bitter, but there is some earthy hop flavor. M: The body is maybe a little on the thin side and the carbonation is medium. D: Not quite as rich as many oatmeal stouts, but still a pretty decent beer. Wouldn’t mind ticking this one on tap again.

Tap. Black opaque with a dark brown head. Maple toffee and coffee aroma. Dry sweet mouthfeel with a grainy texture. Hops in ending, with a very nice well balnced body. (June 2004).

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
On tap. Pours with a large, foamy brown head that slowly collapses on itself. An opaque black body underneath with some sediment at the bottom of the glass. Aromas are roasty, caramel, diacetyl, coffee, iodine, and licorice. Flavors are of diacetyl, caramel, roast, vanilla, cola. Biscuit, coffee, a touch chalky and smokey in the finish. Pretty dry. Creamy to slightly lively carbonation. Medium dry, a bit chalky. Medium to full body.

bb (6851) - 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.

motelpogo (6453) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2004
no great surprise that the stout was the pick of this brewery´s beers. pleasant coffee aroma, light black, hint of molasses and golden syrup but not a lot of guts

marcus (6419) - 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.
