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 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.

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.

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.
