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.

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

Dark brown color, multicolored brown head with great thick lacing. Aroa of roasted coffee and cocoa. Clean, soft mouthfeel.

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

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.

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 I’m 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.

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.
