COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most popular dark beer is a hearty, chewy oatmeal stout (8% oats in the grist). Lots of body, as you would expect coming from the West Coast oatmeal stout tradition. The dark, roasted character is caramel- and chocolatelike with a decided smoothness. Hops are, again, an assortment, and come across mostly in flavor and aroma, not bitterness.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Opaque, black with a tan head. Smelled of coffee and anise. Dry on the tongue with a roasty flavor accented by dark chocolate. Roasty and bitter at the end.

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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2004
Tap, Magnolia Pub and brewery, San Fransisico. Nothing spesh. Standard roast and choc, medium bittreness, decent flavours, but perhaps a little too subtle. A bit short and thin.

omhper (23901) - Tyres, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Very black. Milky, toffeeish chocolate aroma. Sweet with near full body and mellow mouthfeel. Notes of tar, inky bitter finish. A bit rough around the edges.

chibuck (3511) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Draft... Light oily black, light ring but not much head... Nose is too light, chocolatey notes, ok...the taste is much better bursting with flavor, coarse chocolate and cocoa, a light sweet.

JaBier (7146) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Sample at the brewpub on 8/4/10. Darkest brown/black pour with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasty to the point of ashy with not much else going on. Flavor is equally roasty and ashy with a bit of molasses sweetness in there too.

Oakes (15821) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2006
Near black with light chocolate aroma. Chewy, fudgey but a bit harsh on the black malt bitterness. Alcohol creeps in late as well. All over the bloody place.
