Pours pitch black with a mostly receding tan head. Aroma of mild roast, chocolate, and foamy malt. Taste is light chocolate and smooth oatmeal. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very mild tasting, a bit boring. Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2003
Well balanced, but not incredibly complex. Good roasted taste, very drinkable. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - APR 10, 2007
Sampled at the brewhouse in San Bruno. Pours nicely with a thick head in its pint glass. Aroma was full of oatmeal goodness. Flavor was very nice, but not as strong as i was hoping. Palate was very smooth and left a refreshing aftertaste. Darkover (1538) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2008
Black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt. Flavor of roasted malt and a little chcolate. Pretty good. MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2007
5oz sample BJ’s Cupertino, CA - Bartender told me the tap is 60% CO2 and 40% NO2 - Not sure if it was the "Lastos" but was a special oatmeal stout. Aroma is mild roasted dark malts with some chocolate and coffee. Pours black with a small head and little lacing. Flavor is more pronounced than aroma. Roasted dark malts, oatmeal, creamy mocha and a touch of chocolate. Palate is sticky and creamy. Easy drinking and tasty enough to wash down some pizza.

Dark, oily opaque body with a small mocha head. Aroma is very roasty and bitter. Flavor is dominated by bitter bakers chocolate and roasted coffee notes. There’s also a decent hoppiness as well. Finishes dry and tangy. Pretty good. pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2008

Dark brown with a tan head that fades quickly but leaves a nice speckled lacing behind. Big roasted malt and coffee smell with some pecans in there too. Flavor is watery malt with a slight roasty finish. Super high and unfitting carbonation - almost soda like. Very thin and has an underplayed flavor. Pepsi flavor and palate appear as it warms a little. The smell was so nice I was imagining the taste to be as bold as the smell. But overall, very drinkable and one of the better ones at BJs.
Tap, La Jolla. Pours dark brown with a short tan head that fades fast. Thick aroma of coffee, roasty malt, and oats. Nice smooth taste. Lots of coffee and bittersweet chocolate bite with a good malt back. Kind of dry finish. Good. BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2007
On tap at BJ’s Columbus. Poured dark brown with short head that did not last long. Taste was chocolate and burnt coffee...A very drinkable stout, but not as sweet as I like mine. Barley’s has a much better Oatmeal Stout. herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - SEP 29, 2002
Thin watery body. Little flavor even after waiting 15 minutes for it to warm up a little. Very slight nose. Not a very good rendition of one of my favorite styles.
