12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a very dark ruby color. There’s a nice two finger head with a khaki shade that caps the body off nicely. Retention is good, texture is great, and plenty of lacing is left behind. This one looks damn good. S: This is what I’d want a solid oatmeal stout to smell like: decent chocolate notes, plenty of roast, and oatmeal to tie everything together. No twists or turns, just a really good aroma. T: It starts with a bit of cola flavor. The finish, though, is excellent: it’s chocolaty, roasty, and bitter in all the right ways. While simplistic, it really makes good use of what it has to deliver an enjoyable experience. M: Yes, this is rather thin in body. The rich flavor means this is still a good one to savor. But man...if it had a full body, that would really take it over the top. I still enjoy how creamy it is in the mouth, and there’s only enough carbonation to help it go down well. O: Oh yeah, now this is the stuff. It’s not perfect, but it’s damn enjoyable - it would be in the 4+ range if it weren’t so thin or overly cola-flavored. I would definitely buy this again.

JorisPPattyn (8283) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2015
Thick, dense, beige head over deep dark brown beer. Brown bread with chocolate or chocolate spread; leather, wood. Oatmeal very obvious in the taste. Woodshavings, quite dry, slight sweetness in the background. Chocolate retronasal. Quite thick, velvety MF. Not unlike porridge, but feels better carbonated than it looks. Decent.

Bozo_skeleton (684) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAY 14, 2015
Bien noire et opaque, petit collet brun fuyant qui laisse juste une pellicule de mousse. Tres porté sur les aromes de moka, de caramel et de fruits noirs. Bien ronde, presque liquoreuse alors qu’elle ne titre qu’a 5.8, envellope bien le palais pour une finale longue et chocolaté.

xlts (75) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown-to-black, quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate, not much of roastiness or coffee. In taste it’s similar, and with a strong porter-ish feel to it - sweet, velvety, reisiny. Low bitterness, sweet aftertaste. Easy drinking, but a bit dull.

Wysycenie średnie, goryczka niska. Ciemnobrązowe. Obfita piana, średnie pęcherze. Beżowa, utrzymująca się w postaci pierścienia. Plus za fają etykietę. W aromacie dominują nuty owocowe m.in. śliwka. Odrobinę palone, kawowe, słodkie. Średnio pełne. W smaku palone, zbożowe. Dobrze pijalne.

Metalchopz (2558) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Pours a real dark brown colour with hardly any highlights. Big creamy-froth beige head with great retention and full lacing. Roasted malt aromas with nutty notes, caramel, maple syrup, dark fruits and the oats to round things up. Seems a bit light for the body, a little watery. The taste reflects on this, being a little milder than the nose. The roasted malts are smooth with the oats, hints of molasses and dark fruits. Not a bad brew for those who prefer their stouts thinner and with not as much punch.
