Smooth aroma of toasted malt and chocolate. Solid brown color with a milk chocolate head that laces a bit. Starts with a sweet toasted malt that moves to chocolate. Starts with a firm mouthfeel, but thins a bit. Coffee comes forth. The finish is toasted malt with a hint of bitter. Very smooth, very pleasant, very drinkable.

Bottle @ tasting at my place.
[thank you, after4ever]
Pours deep deep - almost black with a great beige creamy head. Aroma is oats, dark chocolate. The oats are very apparent. Mouthfeel is initially quite lively, but turns much more creamy. Flavour has oats, chocolate, biscuit (a touch of metal), weak coffee. But the overall impression is a bit lacking and the oats are far too apparent.
