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 Total Wine. Poured a little aggressively and you get a nice foamy tan head. It dissipates a bit but leaves you with a small rim around the glass. Roasty malt aroma with a bit of light grainiess to it. Flavor has a nice chocolatey aspect with a creamy texture. I am pleasantly surprised by this one here although I had low expectations. Finish is a little punchy and leaves a bit of alcohol bite.

Pours black with a crazy amount of head. That acrid oatmeal stout taste is VERY strong, and surprisingly, I love it.

Aromas of chocolate and smoke. Looks opaque black except under intense light where it shows a beautiful ruby tinge. Surprisingly thin dark tan head for an oatmeal stout. Surprisingly thin body too. Lots of dark, milk and bittersweet chocolate though along with roasted smokiness. A bit of a coffee character too. Leaves chocolate in the aftertaste and bitterness on the tongue. Not what Im used to in oatmeal stouts. Tried it with a Reeses cup and... not good. Too much charred smoke flavor. However, overall a decent beer.

Single bottle, Total Wine. Ink black pour, small creamy head. Clumpy lacing. A lot of chocolate, fig, and oatmeal in the aroma. Taste is roasted malt, raisin, dark chocolate. Kind of chalky finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle. Very dark pour with a light tan head. Good density. Nice aroma and taste of sweet chocolate and lightly roasted coffee. Full palate. Really nice stout.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2014 It pours a deep brown / near black color with a decent-sized light brown head that dissipates after a few minutes. It looks fairly average, a bit thin.

On first smell I get a good dose of semisweet chocolate, some touches of roast, and a bit of brown bread. It is appealing and totally appropriate for the style, but it doesnt blow me away.

The flavor palate is mostly a combination of baking/semisweet chocolate or cocoa power, along with some roasted malt. There are hints of coffee mixed in. The flavors are good, but they dont blow me away; it is a fairly simple profile. The finish is roasty with a touch of smoke. It ends well and is appropriate to style, but not overachieving.

The beer is highly drinkable, but it is a bit thinner than I would like given that it is an oatmeal stout. I expect a bit more substance when Im drinking something from this style.

Overall, this is an approachable, safe beer that doesnt offend, but it doesnt wow either. It is a solid choice for the stout drinker as a pairing with food or on its own.

Pours dark brown with a more thin tan head that doesnt really last to long. Aroma is kind of smoky, with chocolate, caramel, and some coffee undertones. Taste still has a good amount of smokiness. Mostly chocolate here with a nice balance of coffee. Aftertaste is actually must more coffee and lingers for awhile. Medium bodied with a slick, slightly sticky texture. This is a pretty good stout with easy drinkability.

Poured into my Duck Rabbit pint glass. How much more black could this beer get? The answer is none. None more black. Creamy, thick head which was expected for an oatmeal stout. Has an aroma of caramel and maybe some fruity/earthy notes. Kind of hard for me to pin this one down. Good thicker mouthfeel to this beer. Finishes dry and roasty-toasty. Bits of molasses in the mid taste stick out to me. Overall, a pretty nice oatmeal stout. One I would pick up again. Not too Americanized.

Aroma is sweet bread, chocolate and a hint of earthiness. The flavor is roasted malts, chocolate and a tart/mildly bitter finish.
