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.

On tap. Black with minimal brown head. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, some hops. Slightly bitter, thin/medium bodied, decent dry finish along with some chocolate. A good stout.

On tap at the brewpub. Pour is pitch black with a frothy brown head and great lacing. Roasty, chocolatey, vanilla, light earthiness, graham crackers, and light peaty aroma. Taste is dark cocoa, espresso, earthy roasted coffee, bready, toasty, and grassy with a roasted bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty stout.

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.

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.

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.

Enjoyable oatmeal stout with lots of cream and flavor. Rich and dark. The best of the night that we had at the brewpub.

On tap at the brewpub. Really nice looking stout, big and oily, heading straining over the top of the English pint glass. Really dreamy roasted malt nose, with a light chocolate fadeout and a hint of char somewhere in there. Fine thick mouthfeel, hits the spot. Really tastes more like a dry stout, especially with the chalky finish, but the creamy, chocolatey flavors are there in abundance too, and satisfy regardless of how you categorize it.
