Stockyard Oatmeal Stout

This is by the Josephs Brau Brewing Company of San Jose, California and is from Trader Joe's.

The beer pours a deep, dark black in color, with some very dark ruby and garnet when held to the light.  There is a small head of light brown foam, almost creamy.  The aroma is dark roasted malt, coffee, and some dark cocoa, with some tart notes.  The taste follows the aroma with dark roasted malt, dark cocoa and black coffee.  The mouthfeel is creamy.  This is a solid stout, especially taking into account the price.
