COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Name changed to Redwood Stout in 2015.

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!

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - FEB 23, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a dark, molasses brown color with a thin layered dark tan head. The aroma is of oatmeal and burnt roasted malt over touches of chocolate and cherry. Big, creamy body upfront with lots of dark roasty malt and bitter chocolate flavors with some sweetness mixed in. The finish lingers heavy and is chalky. Very drinkable and smooth.

MrBunn (2676) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2011
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 (9498) - 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.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JAN 19, 2011
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.
