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!

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

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.

Malty_MacHops (668) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Very good. The aroma is a subtle blend of roast and coffee. The beer is opaque black with a thick tan head leaving lacing throughout. The taste is smooth malt and coffe with only the subtlest coffee presence. The body is thick creamy and smooth. Excellent.

Ibrew2or3 (7997) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2012
12oz bottle pours pretty darn dark with thin dark tan head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, some burnt malts and then picks up malt like earthiness that seems a touch like oxidation. The taste is pretty rich with an initial mix of earthy maltiness, milk chocolate, dark roasted maltiness and a firm layer of dark roasted coffee. It climbs into a modest sense of roasted malt astringency into the finish that seems to take away whatever creaminess that was trying to shine through from the oatmeal.
