Name changed to Redwood Stout in 2015.

Jet black in color and fullbodied with a rich, creamy, long-lasting head. Robust, with luscious chocolate and coffee flavors, it is balanced with just the right amount of UK Golding hops. Brewed with massive quantities of oats, our Oatmeal Stout is smooth in the extreme. It pairs well with a wide range of hearty, full-flavored foods and delicious desserts. Our Oatmeal Stout is 6.0% alcohol by volume and 100% marvelous!

Bottle from Friar Tuck in Savoy, IL. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and ale esters. Slight creamy mouthfeel with average carbonation. Flavor of dark roasted malts, coffee grounds, and dark chocolate with a very light hopping rate to balance things out without being too bitter. Dry finish with some wet grain notes. Not bad

Pours a huge thick tan head. Dark black body. Absolutely gorgeous. Appearance couldnt get any better! Great traditional aroma of roasted coffee and oatmeal. Flavors of black coffee and unsweetened chocolate. Only quibble is perhaps the body is a little on the thin side and could be more chewy. Probably one of my favorite Mendocino brews!

12oz bottle from Belmont Party Supply, Dayton, OH. Pours a black color with tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Im a huge stout fan and this isnt one of the better ones. Its good, certainly drinkable but too bland. Just doesnt have the flavors bursting out like Im used to in bold stouts. This is a heavy stout with lots of oat flavoring, probably why the bland taste. Some hints of coffee in the taste but not enough. Decent beer.

hayduke (5030) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 24, 2010
From a six pack at the Northcoast Coop costing $8.89 this 12-oz bottle poured inky black with a long last lasting creamy tan head and sticky lacing rings. Nose is toasted malts and coffee, with some fruit. Rich body and smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, and ripe fruit and the finish is bitter. A very well crafted stout and a real buy for beer this good.

nearbeer (5078) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 21, 2010
12 oz. Opaque black with a lasting, quarter-inch creamy head and crunchy lacing everywhere. Nose is creamy espresso, charred wood and light berries. Medium-heavy body is velvety smooth, slight wateriness makes this one very drinkable against the big malt. Flavor is espresso with cream, smoky char, raisin and molasses. Most excellent.

slush2 (5) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 19, 2010 does not count
I dont know. Theres something about this. Its good. It isnt bland. It is heavy, but it isnt killing the gut. Its got a clear, delicious taste. Its beer, and if you havent had a good one in awhile, then youd do yourself a favor by trying one of these once. I cant say its the best, because maybe I havent had that yet, but this could be it.

Suttree (6191) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Very solid stuff. Lots of dark fruits like raisin and dates and prune, Nice notes of bread or toast. Actually comparable to an oatmeal raisin cookie, but the word "oatmeal" right there on the label might be suggesting a little. Notes of coffee, too, as well as chocolate. Perhaps a little boozy as it warms. Tasty.

Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma is roasted malt with some chocolate. The flavor is chocolate, roasted malt, some smoke and some oats. Medium, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice oatmeal stout and the best Mendocino beer I have tried.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Pours basically black with a 2 finger, kinda chunky, tan head that has decent retention. Aroma is bittersweet chocolate, roast, a touch of char, dark caramel and maybe a hint of dark toasted oats. Flavor is roast, chocolate, toasted oats, molasses, spicy and planty hops, roasted nuts and a metallic tinge that I didnt so much enjoy. Palate is a little too thin, both oily and dry and has a light, but sharp carbonation. Pretty good oatmeal stout, a bit thin and slightly metallic, but it ends up being quite enjoyable overall. Nothing all that special though.
