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 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.

On tap at Magnolia. Pours a black with a finger of creamy tan head. Light lacing stays on the glass. Smells of roasted malts and coffee. Flavor confirms the nose, lots of roasted malts and a strong coffee flavor. Medium bodied stout with a nice creamy finish, leaves the flavor on my tongue that Iím looking for in a good stout. Overall a very impressive stout from a relatively unknown brewery, rivals Beer Geek Breakfast as one of my favorites. If ever in San Francisco, stop by Magnolia and try this beer.
