12 Beers: Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout

Anderson Valley Brewing Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout

Oats and chocolate dominate the smell but there is a hint of coffee there too.

Poured a deep black with a thick tan colored head and thin lacing.

The taste is very mild and surprisingly thin.  The oats and chocolate are there and they are a little toasty.  The flavor is very smooth and finishes quickly.

I thought the flavor good but I was expecting it to be heavier and thicker with more character.  I would say was an average stout.
