COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Jet black in color and full·bodied with a rich, creamy, long-lasting head. Robust, with luscious chocolate and coffee flavors, it is balanced with just the right amount of UK Golding hops. Brewed with massive quantities of oats, our Oatmeal Stout is smooth in the extreme. It pairs well with a wide range of hearty, full-flavored foods and delicious desserts. Our Oatmeal Stout is 6.0% alcohol by volume and 100% marvelous!”

BucannonXC5 (802) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Color was pitch black. Surprising a small amount of head, maybe ½ inches. Light lacing that dissipated very quickly. Light film on sides. Smelled of dark coffee and dark chocolate malts. This was the best part of the beer. Tasted of dark and smoky malts. Also some dark chocolate flavor in there as well. Tasted pretty fake to me. Full body. Average carbonation. Smooth feel. It was just a bit too fake for me, but I’ll take the smoothness.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Black in color, moderate to thin spritzy beige head, spotty lacing.   Roasted malts, oatmeal, burnt molasses on the nose.   Soft roasty malts, semi-sweet... make that fairly sweet.   Roasty, with a nice smooth malt background.   Not too big, easy to drink.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Falls off pretty quickly, but at least this one starts out pretty flavorful.   Not really any flaws that I see.   Slightly above average, and worthy of a try in my book.

hopscotch (8861) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Bottle… Pours clear and practically black with a mid-sized, fluffy, cappuccino head. The nose is grainy with toasted notes – not as much chocolate or coffee character as expected. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is excellently balanced with some roastiness, but is mainly bland. Crisp, pretty clean finish. Flawless, but boring for the style.

obguthr (3653) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Chalky charred oak, medium roast coffee nose. Black, thin beige head. Milk chocolate flavor, raisin hints, coffee on the back end. Won’t blow you away, but a real pleasure to drink.

JStax (2853) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Appearance is a dark black story brown with no head to speak of. Aroma is strong coffee and licorice. Taste is toasted coffee beans with a mellow transition to oats and licorice. Nice oatmeal stout.

PorterPounder (5360) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Deep, rich dark black inky pour with a decently thick khaki-colored head. Aroma has some pipe tobacco, some day old coffee and a bit of fresh black earth. Bold stout flavor with some nice bakers unsweetened chocolate, some french roast coffee, a bit of fresh black dirt. Mouthfeel is nice and dry and chalky. Excellent stout.

chickenflea (327) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Bottle. Black, small light brown creamy head, fair lacing and good retention. Great roasted malt aroma. The usual suspects are here: molasses, chocolate, coffee, toasty caramel. Mouth is medium-full with creamy carbonation, lightly dry. Flavor is lightly sweet with some coffee bean bitterness, and a mildly hoppy long finish. I am beginning to think that this is one of the easier styles to get right. A lot of breweries do it well. The Mendocino is a solid offering. Very tasty and true to form.
