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 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.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 7, 2006
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.

On tap at Magnolia, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma brings out nice notes of roasted malt, oatmeal, and subtle coffee. Flavour brings out dry coffee grounds, oats, and roast. Nice and dry, with a roasty, oaty palate. Great stout.
