Draught at Beechwood BBQ Seal Beach. Deep, dark mahogany with thin head over only half of the top but thorough lacing anywhere the beer touches. Aroma is funky bacteria and oatmeal cookie. Taste is mildly sweet followed by definitely bitter finish. Palate is much like Coca Cola but of course not that explosive in the middle but still lively yet softening. Overall OK but too much funk and not enough subtle oatmeal experience.

Bomber. Poured a healthy shade of deep brown with way too much deep tan head going on. The aroma picked up semi-sweet chocolate and rolled oats, with a detergenty character laced throughout.. warm molasses filled the back of the nose.. a bit airy and seemed a touch off. The flavor found molasses and burnt cocoa at the core, with odd, almost metallic, almost sour, kinda detergenty stuff laced throughout, and heavy roast on the edges.. finished dry and grainy, with more of the odd stuff. Medium-bodied and too carbonated on the palate.. the carbo hurt the assumed creaminess.. this seemed like it may have been infected, and I’d gladly try it again.

Draught at 99 Bottles of Beer, Santa Cruz, CA. Perfectly black, small head. Aroma of chocolate and caramel. Mid sweet with clean rounded mouthfeel and solid body. Some chocolate, fudge and plastic. Salty finish. The flavours seem like they are wrapped in plastic and are inaccessible.

Pour was pretty dark and the head overtook half the glass, was a little surprised. The aroma was a little harsh imo. The taste was just about average with more carbonation than I like to see from an oatmeal stout. This beer didn’t do much for me.

Thin and lacks body/mouthfeel. Flavor is far from dark or stout. Suggestion: AVOID

pours a jet black. aroma has a roasted quality to it but it is a mild hit. the flavors continue the roasty notes which then fades into a bit of BBQ flavor before finishing a little burnt to my taste buds. also is a bit thin. did not get into this one.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark with a ridiculous head. Like, impossible to drink head. The nose and flavor are both strong coffee with some sweet malts.
