“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. Black, small light brown creamy head, fair lacing and good retention. Great roasted malt aroma. The usual suspects are here: molasses, chocolate, coffee, toasty caramel. Mouth is medium-full with creamy carbonation, lightly dry. Flavor is lightly sweet with some coffee bean bitterness, and a mildly hoppy long finish. I am beginning to think that this is one of the easier styles to get right. A lot of breweries do it well. The Mendocino is a solid offering. Very tasty and true to form.

chinchill (2551) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Undated 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass (from notes). A- Pours a fully opaque black color with large, dark tan head. This quickly reduces to a thin layer, but this has excellent retention and a thick ring that leaves plenty of sticky lacing. S- Baked bread, oatmeal, and plenty of roasted malt with no burnt or even particularly dark roasted grains. T- A full, hearty malt flavor that’s richer and darker than the aroma indicates, and with more contribution from the oatmeal. Well balanced and very lightly smoky. Slightly bitter and a tad sour, with a fine and lasting, toasted grain aftertaste that has a light coffee edge. M- Medium carbonation; creamy smooth, slick/oily mouthfeel; Full body. O- OATMEAL stout - easily recommended for those who like more than a hint of oatmeal in their stouts.

VinegarStroke (312) - Napa, California, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Tap: clear, black, with thick head and good lace. Very lifted mocha, coffee, cocoa and certainly creamy. Chocolate and dessert. Roasted and chocolate. Creamy but lacking mid palate. Dry, not sour, medium low bitterness. Nice appearance and aroma. Lacks texture and complexity.

Pours an inky black with a thick caramel head. Aroma is dark chocolate and licorice. Taste is a bit smoky with a fair amount is dark chocolate and roasted malt and a funky bitter backend. Not very good at all.

EithCubes (5148) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle. Nose roasty with chocolate, sweet with very light Golding and relatively more vanilla. Pours dark ruby but coal-black in the glass with a fizzy light brown head. Taste off-dry with pockets of red berry fruity sweetness poking through the soft and coating mocha and coffee creaminess, touch tart with light bitterness but there’s a good balance between all these elements. Light body but not watery, has a good level of maltiness for being so light (I’d have said in 4% abv territory), little bits of ash and yeast in the finish but neither overdone there, either. Love to see the restraint! The chocolate and roast might be a bit off-putting by the third bottle, but certainly not for those first two!

Lagerboy (1441) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014

NFL (Not For Lagerboys)
