JulienHuxley (2990) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis Utrecht. Black pour with nice creamy off-white foam. Aroma is really vanilla forward, sweet dark malts, light licorice, herbal notes, oatmeal, very light roast. Taste is wicked smooth, nice sweet molasses touch, lots of vanilla on the finish, very low bitterness. Palate is smooth and creamy, easy drinking (med bodied).

Bottle pour... TJs. Very nice pour, dark reddish brown, foamy head dissipates. Aroma is hardly inspiring. First sip a bit less smooth than most stouts, bubbly. Clean palate, easy drinking. Decent coaster. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Transfer from BA review on 8-31-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance –Served a deep brown nearly black beer with a one finger tan head. The head faded over time to give a good level of lacing. Smell – The aroma overall, was rather light but pleasant. It was a mix of some roasted malt as well as a light bit of chocolate and dark fruit sweetness. Taste – The taste began of a more dry roasted malt flavor with a chocolate and roasted coffee flavor greeting the tongue. These flavors are quickly meet by some caramel sweetness and a bit of dark fruit. As the taste advances further, it sweetens even more with some flavors of vanilla and cream coming in at the end. Overall it leaves a very satisfyingly sweet yet roasty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side for an oatmeal stout of its strength with a carbonation level that is slightly higher then normal. Overall – Other than the weakness in the feel of the brew it was very good. It had a wonderful taste profile and a great appearance. Easy to drink and very tasty.

I chose this juicy beer to combine my celebration for the entrance in my new house, in Amsterdam. As I refered it is enough juicy or floral. Maube a special coffe in its taste. A bit caramel too.

whoisghost (41) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2014
Dark brown/black with a burnt brown head. Looks like it will be heavy. Somewhat muted aroma of chocolate, oatmeal and hazelnut. Tastes a little watery - dull flavours; malt and a little soapy. Way thinner than I’d have liked - expected carbonation for style and doesn’t coat mouth much. Pretty average.

Zwiebel88 (107) - GERMANY - JUL 26, 2014
Fast komplett schwarzes Bier. Röstige Noten, leichter Bacon, Karamell und Kaffee in der Nase. Am Gaumen Schokolade, Kaffee, minimale Bitterkeit und eine gute Balance. Könnte etwas aromatischer sein. Sehr angenehm weich und cremig.

adster (203) - HUNGARY - JUL 18, 2014
Könnyed fekete színben érkezik a pohárba, kissé zárkózott jelleggel az illatok terén. Levegőztetve egyre inkább kiteljesedik és egy pörkölt kávés, fakérges aromát áraszt magából. Közepesen telt, enyhén száraz malátás alapokon nyugszik egy simogató étcsokoládés, kávés, némileg gyümölcsös (halványan meggyes, cseresznyés), leginkább pörkölt ízvilág. Könnyed, bármikor fogyasztható, hangulatos darab.
