2009 Tap. What a wonderful surprise! Saw this on tap at my local homebrew supply shop...and wow! What a find. Dark, coffee aroma with a similar complexion. Mocha brown head quickly dissipates. Flavor of cinnamon, caramel, and light coffee, this is a great tasting stout. Similar to other oatmeal stouts with a burned grain sort of aftertaste. Thick, but not cloying. Complex, but very drinkable. A wise choice.

Perfetta oatmeal stout della California! Scura con schiuma beige. Al naso i classici sentori di arrosto e soia. In bocca coposa e ben bilanciata tendenzialmente amara e delicata. Sapore molto ricco e pieno di una stout con note di chioccolato e melassa. Finale persistente. Ottima!

Can from Systembolaget, ABV 5,7%. Very dark brown opaque beer with a smooth beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee.Flavour is the same. Very smooth and enjoyable stout.

Chocolate, smooth. Not smoky, not too sweet. Extremely light and airy for a dark beer.

tfredvik (1182) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2014
Black body with a large, creamy, long-lived, quite dark brown head that laces the glass well. Malty, sweet and strong aroma of milk chocolate, chocolate sauce, dark caramel and generic roasted malty notes (but more lightly roasted than most stouts). Strong flavour that follows the aroma. Light to moderate sweet and moderate bitter taste. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Dries up a bit in the finish. Brilliant!
[35.5 cl can, from Systembolaget Gårda, Göteborg, Sweden]

PawelD (230) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 11, 2014
Butelka. W aromacie słodka czekolada, kawa z mlekiem, owsianka. Kolor bardzo cziemny bursztyn, prawie nieprzejrzysty. Piana niska beżowa szybko znika do zera co zdeczka martwi. Wysycenie troche za wysokie jak na stout. W smaku pierwsze skrzypce gra słodycz czekolady i kawy z mlekiem, jest też specyficzna oleistość i gęstość dzięki dodaniu płatków owsianych. Na finiszu lekkie akcenty ziołowo miodowe i niska goryczka. Gdyby nie wysycenie to byłoby bardzo sesyjne piwo no i minusy za pianę, mimo tego warto spróbować.

SlovakSniper (3284) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
Une canette bue dans mon camp de chasse. Belle robe noire et son col brun peu développé. Beau nez chocolaté avec des parfums de petites baies, de la vanille et du café caramélisé. Saveurs moins vibrantes de chocolat, d’avoine rôtie et de vanille grillée. Corps moyen-faible avec une texture légèrement crémeuse et un pétillement bas. Finale de chocolat amer et de céréales rôties qui assèchent. Plaisante bière qui manque néanmoins un petit quelque chose. Arômes délicieux mais saveurs un peu diluées.

Alla spina all’IBF. Stout in cui dominano i sentori di liquirizia e caramello. Poco apporto dal luppolo

Chopper925 (180) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle. Beautiful clear black, brown color, with a fast diminishing brown head. Bready, coco, phenolic smell, very promising. Dry taste, with well balanced sourness/bitterness. More thin texture with a flat carbonation, typical. Aftertaste has some toasty, malty, bready notes, but also something fresh and fruity. This is a great oatmeal stout, love it from the first sip!

Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana ładna, ale szybko opadająca. Aromat mógłby być wyraźniejszy. Czuć w nim nuty palone, ale jest też lekka owocowość w tle. Smak Bardzo przyjemny, ciemne słody w połączeniu z dobrą kawą. Ogólnie całkiem dobre piwo.

rikstar (875) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2014
Fles bij mitra Enkhuizen meegenomen. Helder donker donker bruin met een fijne bruine schuimkraag. Geur is zoet, stroopachtig, ook de havermout komt duidelijk terug. Smaak is mooi zoetzuur in de aandronk, met een bittere afdronk. Is mooi vol zeker voor dit alcoholpercentage.
