RedSox2004 (1599) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Dark brown with some ruby red highlights, generous two-finger tan head from an aggressive pour, nice lace and solid retention. Strong roasted coffee aroma up front, followed quickly by oats, rich chocolate and caramel malts. Rich mocha espresso flavor with a pleasant sweetness from the oats and chocolate. Gentle resinous hops bitterness provides a nice balance. Medium to full body, nice level of carbonation in the silky smooth mouthfeel, and a pleasant sweet oat finish.

bnoel09 (572) - Elk Grove, California, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Poured into an English pint glass. Dark, dark brown/black with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee with oatmeal and chocolate notes. Very creamy and smooth mouthfeel with just the slightest bitterness on the finish from the roasted malts. Overall flavor is mild as would be expected with an oatmeal stout but has excellent roasted and toasty flavors with mild chocolate notes. This is a very nice oatmeal stout and one that I will be seeking out again in the future.

The oatmeal aroma was the first prominent attribute of this beer i noticed. Oatis is dark brown, with main tastes of oatmeal and stout malts balanced with a hoppy background. This is a great winter stout

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 4, 2011
22 oz bottle. Black with a thick, foamy light tan head. Roasty aroma with chocolate, coffee and toasty bread. The flavor is sweet and malty with a fair amount of bitter roasted coffee and some semi-sweet chocolate. Full body with mild carbonation and a thick, smooth mouth feel. Real nice Stout, not too sweet and full of flavor.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JAN 2, 2011
22oz bottle -

Excellent stout for a cold winter’s evening. Aroma of chocolate cereal, caramel, paper and light mocha. Roasty notes seem to take a backseat to the chocolate character. Appearance is beautiful...black, frothy tan cap, 1" thick...long lasting. Flavor is just a plethora of chocolate and caramel, but nicely balanced with a earthy bitter angle. The sikly mouthfeel perfectly amplifies the chocolate notes and makes for a wonderful pint of beer. For less than $5, this is a great, great beer.
