3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2015 Bottle: Super dark brown capped with an oatmeal colored head. Sweet malts on the aroma with hefty roast, providing a good "bittersweet" combo in the aroma. Hints of coffee and light oats, not much cocoa, and a bit underpowered. Roasted malts go to work on the palate with heavy roasted coffee beans and some grains and oats in the background. Creamy, sweet, and just shy of bitter from the roast. Big-time woody and nutty notes in the finish. Smooth, creamy mouth feel and soft carbonation.

Aroma of rasins and grapes and caramel. Dark colour with a brown fast vanashing head. A bit sour flavours. At first rasins and grapes, a bit watery and then some breads and roasted malts. A bit dry and little hoppy and sour finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Californian oatmeal stout, for sale at the Albert Heijn supermarkets in the Low Countries nowadays. Thinnish but moussy, light tan head, consisting of fairly large bubbles and breaking fairly quickly but leaving a stable rim around the glass, residing over a hazy, very dark burgundy coloured beer with ochre hue, blackish in its ’soul’ but still transparent, at least at the edges. Classic and fairly simple, but flawless stout bouquet of bitter chocolate, roasted coffee beans or cold black coffee, much caramel, cured meat, dried banana, blueberries, dates, raisins, leather, bayleaf, toasted bread, hint of furniture varnish, all quite mild, and working well together. Sweetish onset, raisins and figs, with soft carbo, smooth and oily but rather thin, even a bit watery mouthfeel even for this ABV, with still the typical ’silkiness’ of oatmeal which lends this beer a deep, vague grain sourishness; a certain metallic feel pops up as well. Nice caramel malts paired with a more chocolatey touch make up the main flavour in the middle phase, roasted bitterness only truly revealing itself upon swallowing and lingering a bit, though it is the caramelly and softly but still lightly bitter chocolatey malts which make up the main part of the finish; a dash of peppery, gently bittering hops is there as well. The subtle sourishness of the oats also linger. Alcohol remains perfectly hidden, as it ought to be for a beer of this ABV. Accessible, easy-going stout, technically well done, can serve as a perfect introduction to the oatmeal stout substyle.

Bomber poured into a pint, pours a nice dark brown with a mahogany head with little lacing. Nice notes of espresso and dried cherries along with toffee. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, licorice, dark fruits, caramel, malt and vanilla. Medium body and creamy texture. Overall it’s a decent oatmeal stout.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 16B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: nice dark chocolate aroma with hints of licorice and faint coffee and walnut. no esters nor hops discernible. APPEARANCE: dark brown color and opaque. below average brown head with low retention. TASTE: predominant roasted malt flavour with burnt coffee notes. low hop bitterness with an almost dry finish. PALATE: medium-low body without much texture. medium carbonation. OVERALL: an oatmeal stout that promises on the aroma but cant deliver on the taste and palate.
