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!”

Good type of beer for a cool spring evening. There is oatmeal permeating this beer obviously but the supporting dark roast and creamy finish complements the main notes well. Just a satisfying beer, makes me want to try more from this brewer.

Very good stout. Drank in KS. Very chocalatey. Not as creamy as I would expect based off of the description hyping up the amount of oats used.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2012
All dark with a small mocha head and moderate lacing. Roasted malt and semi-sweet chocolate aroma. Woodsy flavors; modest sweetness with a bit more carbonation that a typical stout. Body could have benefitted with a little more depth. Waited in vain for more hops to show up in the aftertaste. Long lasting finish.

Very mild aroma... we need some help here. Not horrible.. not great. Very dark thick... dark head which falls away. Nice malty sweetness slight bitter... at 6% nice thickness. Not bad guys.

Bottle. Pours a deep black color with a medium tan head. Nice woody, chocolate malt aroma. Roasted coffee flavor with a bit of chocolate and oats. Quite smooth, but a little on the light side. All in all a quality brew.

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 2/27/12

Aroma: The nose is somewhat subtle, with some roasted malts, and hints of coffee and chocolate
Appearance: This one pours a brown-black color with a light brown head and medium lace
Flavor: Tastes lightly sweet, with a dry roasted coffee flavor, and a pretty amount minimal of hop bitterness
Palate: Light-medium bodied, somewhat light for the style, but not watery, with an average carbonation
Overall Impression: This is an alright stout. It is drinkable, and works decently well. I didn’t find anything particularly wrong with it, but it isn’t particularly exciting either. It is just a solid, fairly drinkable, roasty stout.

The aroma of the Mendocino Oatmeal Stout promises lots of oatmeal flavor along with oily hops and perhaps some molasses. Full of big, earthy flavors, this is a very smooth stout. Roasted oats dominate (as they should), followed by bittersweet chocolate, bourbon, and wood. Floral hops make a nice presence at the end, but don’t overshadow anything. Quite quaffable, but I wouldn’t be opposed to more oatmeal in this

Goodgrief (1782) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 25, 2012
A good example of style. Dark and risky pour into the cup. Big chocolate syrup sweetness with a good bit of roast and coffee. Creamy with just the slightest lactic flavor. Pretty good.

12oz bottle in an English pint. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, a little oatmeal and chocolate, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

Very smooth throughout, thick toffee coffee taste, creamy mouthfeel, very little thin whisp head. Easy drinking same taste throughout, thouroughly enjoyable, very well balanced.
