12oz. Black beer with a tan head. Aroma is mostly sweet malt and a bit of sour. Flavor is coffee, sour malt, and not a whole lot else. Fairly soft overall, a bit lacking in character, not my favorite oatmeal stout.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Pours a dark dark dark brown to black with a good enough tan head, thinning to a small loose assemblage of large bubbles in a film. The nose is rather as expected. That is, stout-like. No flaws. A bit chocolatey. A bit roasty, a bit creamy. A bit sweet. Well balanced, with some small floral hops. Perhaps a bit nutty, nice. Smooth full bodied texture with very small even bubbles. Decent enough viscosity. Slightly bigger fan of the flavor. Sweet stout all the way. Creamy, full sweet malt, with a hit of roast, definite chocolate and a good measure of roasty to fruity acidity to balance her out. Naybe some floral hops too. A lingering fruity acidity with a roast bite in the very end. A well executed sweet stout, if I’ve ever had one.

Bottle. Small, dissipating head on this standardly dark stout. Aroma of deeply roasted cashews plus a bit of malted chocolate. Wonderfully tiny bubbles on the tongue. A bit sticky goin’ down . Flavor more sweet than bitter & slightly lactic. Sweetness is well balanced by slightly acidic coffee flavors at the end. More chocolate than coffee, overall, though. Nice.

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Pours an opaque deep brown/black with a hearty huge head that sticks to the glass. Smells of a hint of coffee, chocolate, caramel, maybe roasted nuts. Taste is just as the smell suggests. Nice and full in the mouth with little carbonation. A delicious oatmeal stout indeed

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2008 12 oz bottle. Poured a tanish head. Very full taste, dark color and bitter. smooth chocolate and roast. Seems all of the Anderson Valley beers have been good. Very good beer.

ndubs360 (114) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Poured into a standard pint glass. Pitch black with a small brown head which dissipates rapidly. Aromas of vanilla and roasted malt aromas more pleasant than the taste. Taste os of burnt malt and smoke. overall, a wuality brew, but would prefer a different oatmeal stout.

3.5
Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Poured into an english pint glass with an oily black colour and large frothy tan rocky mountain head, easily aggrevated from a gentle pour. Nose of roasted malts, cocoa, and strong aluminum. Initial taste of cocoa and roasted malts. Finishing with coffee and bitter hops on the palate. Palate duration is average. Medium to full body. Good lacing of the glass and head retention.

3.7
Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Bottled. Poured a healthy deep brown with a creamy cap of medium beige head. The aroma picked up nicely roasted semi-sweet chocolates, cocoa, and lactose sweetness.. overall, sweet, malty, and enticing. The flavor had sweeter chocolates and oats at the core, surrounded by moderate coffee and chocolate bitterness.. lenghty finish picked up some odd tarry notes along with some sweet chocolate and coffee bitterness. Medium-bodied with decent balance.. bit tacky at times. This was a good one.
