hockeybeerguy (910) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - APR 3, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a dark brown/black body with a slightly creamy looking/tan head - slightly concaves a bit and leaves some nice lacing. The smell had oatmeal up front, roasty coffee, slightly sweet burnt malt, dark chocolate. The taste had an oatmeal flavoring and has a nice balance between sweet roasty/slightly burnt chocolate, Iím liking this, roasty aftertaste and finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, sessionable, carbonation seems spot on. Overall, I tend to like stouts, but this one as an oatmeal stout is very good, holy crap, Iíd have this one again in a heartbeat.

superspak (2203) - Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/18/2013. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, oats, dark bread, caramel, light coffee, light herbal, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and oat notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, dark bread, toast, oats, caramel, light coffee, light herbal, and roasted earthiness. Light herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, dark bread, toast, oats, caramel, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance, and complexity of dark/roasted malt, oats, and light hop flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy, smooth, and lightly slick/bready moutfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent oatmeal stout. All around great balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roasted malt and oat flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Love this oatmeal stout, roasty and smooth. This beer will get you out of the bed in the morning. Nice and dark with a short head.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Can at home, from Systembol, 26/03/14 a little on the lively side and required a bit of mopping up! Black with a big old dirty tan head of bubbleage. Nose is roast malt, chocolate, toffee fudge, liqourice. Taste is roasty, toffee fudge, milk chocolate, light hops, dark berry fruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent stout, would happily revist at this price point.

psarquis (1) - - MAR 25, 2014 does not count
Rich and malty stout with strong hint of coffee, some mocha and a hint of chocolate. Itís a rich brew that goes best with tangy, sweet foods and some deserts. Itís surprisingly good with creamy cheeses and red meats.

Pretty standard stout. Aromas of roasted malt and coffee... With a similar flavor profile. Decent... But I donít get the high rating. I found it thin for an oatmeal stout.

Dark. Sweet. A touch of cocoa and coffee. Some belgiany sweetness to this as well. All pretty subtle though.
