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!”

Bottle. Pours a stouty dark brown with a little bit of a head that disappears as it sits in the glass. Aromas are weak... oats, dark malt (chocolate and little peat), and more oats. Flavor is interesting... a mix of oatmeal (both up front and in the aftertaste), chocolate (very mild), cream and a little bit of a Nestle Quik type sweetness. Aftertaste is sweet and chocolate-y.

18-Feb-11 (12-oz bottle, Part of Handcrafted Beers gift set: Purchased 12-Jan-11 at BevMo in Solana Beach, CA) This delicious oatmeal stout is a wonderful entry into this style category. Oatmeal, cocoa mix, milk chocolate, and chocolate milk are prominent while the finish shows a bit of nearly burnt toast and smoky ash. The nose offers enticing aromas of jerky, cocoa, chocolate, burnt toast, and ashtray. Medium-plus in weight and generally creamy yet dry on the palate, but the medium-high carbonation is on the prickly side and could be softened a bit for a more pleasant mouthfeel. The beer is black and opaque in the glass with only a hint of brown translucence at the edges, and the creamy, dark-tan head pours to a quarter inch but settles fairly rapidly to a wide ring. Overall, one of the finest seasonals from Mendocino, and indeed, a truly delicious example of the style. Highly recommended.

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2011
12 oz from Capone’s. Pours turbid black with off-tan head. Nose is black patent malty, with some oats, cacao, grains. Tastes black malty, rich on the palate, dry, a lot of London porter homology here, with a smooth, dense, complex, huge dark malt bill matched by some late hoppy dryness. Very good.

Pretty damn good OS from Mendocino, who finally named a beer NOT on a bird. Chocolate, coffee and roastiness in both nose and flavor. Finishes clean.

12 oz bottle from EZ, hi Anthony!! Poured a good looking deep solid black body with a solid frothy deep beige head. Aroma started off with strong chocolate covered raisins and cake batter giving way to oats and medium toast. Average mouthfeel with far to active carbonation that is almost stingy and no where near as smooth as an oatmal stout should be. The flavor isn’t as good as the aroma and just seems to be more of a burnt malt and toast variety without any chocolate or sweentess that the aroma had. Not bad for the money but there are definitely way better stouts out there.

Pours a deep black color with a great deep tan head that is very dense and creamy looking. Aroma has a mild raisin, chocolate start and moves into a low toffee and coffee presence with a light nuttiness at the end. Early flavor has an almost smoky flavor from the coffee and bunt malt note. After this subsides a very pleasant light dark fruit and hefty sweet chocolate flavors take over. The stout finishes with a slight coffee bitterness. There is a modest density and a little extra in the mouth feel from the oats and a light dry sweetness to finish it off. Oatmeal stouts are one of my favorites and are a consistently one of the styles I am always brewing at home. This oatmeal stout has a great transitioning flavor profile. All flavors flow very nicely and overlap just enough to compliment the flavors from before. A very enjoyable brew and I think one of the better oatmeal stouts out there on the market.

AwYeh (102) - Canton, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Pours your average stout black; no light passing through with a finger of tan head. Smells like chocolate, coffee, and oatmeal after an odd first sniff of house cleaner. Tastes much like smell, with chocolate and roasted malts standing out. Medium+ body, soft carbonation. Goes down easy for a stout but no big desire to have a second.

12 oz bottle. Pours quite black with a reddish-beige head. The aroma is roasty with some distinct berry-like oat notes and a little bit of raisin and prune. The flavor is somewhat sweet with berries and raisins and oats, kind of reminds me of trail mix. But then there is a nice, deep roastiness and just a hint of ashy sourness. Pretty good stuff.
