pours dark brown. not much in the way of lace or legs. has a pretty decent nose. roasted malts and hints of bourbon. the flavor is less impressive. not much going on. no kind of mouthfeel. good nose but that’s about all i can say about it.

Sweet malts on the nose, fruity, with hints of anise. Pours a very dark amber brown with no head. Malty, molasses, very thin, weird after taste I can’t place it? Not good though. I do appreciate Oakes for sending these though!

33cl Can in the airplane to Singapore. ABV was not stated on the can, but I’m not surprised by the 8%. Black colour, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, moccha, liquorice, berries, bit of sour cream. Flavour is the same with a bit of liquorice root and coffee in the finish. Light to medium bodied, good stout.

Can in Singapore. Pours almost black with a thin tanned head. Aroma and flavour of burnt malt, caramel and sugar. Extremely sweet in the mouthfeel and in the finish. Maybe from the bottle this would improve?

Nice-ish aroma of coffee and chocolate with a slightly sulphur finish pours nicely with big mocha head. Flavour is a mix of slight mocha and coffee. Nice but nothing out of this world. Will recommend over most local singapore beers.
