Tower. I did not think this was an oatmeal stout. Too attenuated with metallic flavors. Thin. Coffee and toffee. brstp (201) - - JAN 16, 2007
Dark brown color, multicolored brown head with great thick lacing. Aroa of roasted coffee and cocoa. Clean, soft mouthfeel. lunaticharness (183) - Torrance, California, USA - JUL 25, 2003
this wasnt as horrible as most say it is... kind of mellow and smoky, nice and calm and pleasant not over the top or harsh CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Deep and dark like a stout should be. Coffee being the primary. Nice dry finish and a really good stout. If you like a dark beer, this and the porter were my favorites there. auto (163) - California, USA - SEP 10, 2007

Nice appearance. Dark, roasty notes. Not great body. .................... danbierman (20) - California, USA - AUG 22, 2011
On tap at Magnolia. Pours a black with a finger of creamy tan head. Light lacing stays on the glass. Smells of roasted malts and coffee. Flavor confirms the nose, lots of roasted malts and a strong coffee flavor. Medium bodied stout with a nice creamy finish, leaves the flavor on my tongue that I’m looking for in a good stout. Overall a very impressive stout from a relatively unknown brewery, rivals Beer Geek Breakfast as one of my favorites. If ever in San Francisco, stop by Magnolia and try this beer. whatusay (20) - San Francisco, USA - MAY 24, 2003
Tap at brewery: Not an overall great stout. Left a sharp, smokey, burnt, taste. Could have been a bad batch. The Imperial stout at the brewery on tap is much better.
