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 from the Co-Op in Davis, CA. Pours pretty black with a thin tan smear on top. Aroma is smooth burnt malt with a coffee aspect. Full bodied with chewy carbonation. Flavor is pretty much chocolate and coffee with the burnt malt as background. Quite tasty. Just enough bitter to round things out.

New bottle of the 2010 batch. Pours a thick, light brown head. Body is jet black. Aroma is roasted malt with some nice sweetness. Flavor is fairly dry, with a nice roasted coffee bitterness. It’s also a bit hoppy for an oatmeal stout (not IPA hoppy, of course, but still pretty hoppy). It’s very smooth and incredibly drinkable. Hopefully, Mendocino plans to keep this in the regular rotation.

This must be a new batch of this beer. Although it’s noted as retired, I just bought it today. Anyway, this is a fine beer. Pitch black body with a thin tan head. Very inviting aroma of chocolate, cream, malt, and caramel. Nice smooth mouthfeel, very easy to drink. The flavor lives up to the aroma and beyond. Sweet...chocolate, coffee and cream, caramel, and malt. Wonderful sweet stout.
