tricksta_p (622) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, mocha, some chocolate, some coffee. Flavour is similar, roasty, sweet chocolate. Finishes a bit dry. Nice and tasty, but somehow a little lighter than I expected.

Saeglopur (153) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Pitch black body, with a medium, creamy, tan head, that dissipates quickly. Aroma of coffee, milk chocolate, hazelnut, dark fruits. Tastes of coffe, dark chocolate, dark fruits, some smoky wood. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, with a lively carbonation and it finishes smooth, roasty, bitter, wooden. Very good, easy to drink, with nice distinct chocolate notes, but overall maybe a bit too "shy" in smell and taste.

Dark black body with light brown head. Roasted malt aroma, some coffee. Taste is malty sweet, light bitterness that suits it. Creamy texture. Nice stout.

Bottle. Aroma very harmonic chocolatey and roasted, cocoa. Very dark brown colour. Taste is a bit watery, but smooth, and nicely roasted. Very easily dirnkable. Very good stout, although thinner bodied.

andyhwcinc (1347) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2014
Purchased at Binnys in Chicago, IL: enjoyed at home after a hard workout on the first relatively nice spring evening while watching baseball. Appearance is pitch black, moderate thickness, with a nice dark tan head that laces to the glass. Aroma is light with mocha and oat notes, also rich chocolate. Taste also has a nice mocha characteristic, a little more chocolatey than other oatmeal stouts, and its pretty good. Also has a nice light bitterness. Pretty good one.

Flaska. Uzasna tmava, olejova farba. Pena hneda husta. Vona ako teple kakao, mlieko. Telo lahsie, vodovejsie. Chut jemne sladka, kavova, horuca cokolada. Dochut sladko-chmelova. Vyborne!

hockeybeerguy (893) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - APR 3, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a dark brown/black body with a slightly creamy looking/tan head - slightly concaves a bit and leaves some nice lacing. The smell had oatmeal up front, roasty coffee, slightly sweet burnt malt, dark chocolate. The taste had an oatmeal flavoring and has a nice balance between sweet roasty/slightly burnt chocolate, Im liking this, roasty aftertaste and finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, sessionable, carbonation seems spot on. Overall, I tend to like stouts, but this one as an oatmeal stout is very good, holy crap, Id have this one again in a heartbeat.
