3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 12oz Bottle. The pour was a deep dark black with a large (2-3 finger) light brown rocky head that was mostly diminishing and had good lacing.
The aroma was of roasted cereal malts and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of baker’s chocolate, molasses and a dark french roast coffee.
The taste was mildly malty sweet with a hint of coffee and a touch of molasses in the beginning and finished with a bold roasty sweet flavor and had a mildly bitter chocolate-coffee overtone. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a lightly bitter roasty taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was very close to full in body with a smooth creamy texture and a somewhat mild carbonation.
Overall this was a very roasty and satisfyingly bold brew that possessed a good smooth drinkability. This is a beer that is definitely worth having more than just one...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep dark and dense, with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and licorice. Tastes gives you the full oatmeal flavour, plus dark malts, licorice, chocolate, some coffee. Smooth and creamy, medium bitter. A pretty decent stout!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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. Not unlike porridge, but feels better carbonated than it looks. Decent.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours black from the bottle with a thick tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is really heavy on dark fruits and oats. Taste is not so good. Very oily in the mouth and way too heavy on the oats. So disappointed.

12oz. bottle. Opaque dark brown colour with a thin tan head. Poor retention. Roasted, liquorice, caramel and chocolate in the aroma. Average to soft carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet with a long finish with roasted notes. Overall, a good beer but lacks body.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Botella. Negra opaca. Poca espuma. Aroma principalmente a chocolate y algo de caramelo. Recuerda a bombón de licor. En boca es realmente sensacional. Regaliz, chocolate, caramelo, cereal, ... múltiples sabores. Una gozada. Fantástica stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a black colour with a soapy tan coloured head and thick consistency. There is the slight aroma of oats with a mild flavour of roasted malt and slight bitterness, possibly tempered by the oats, that is short lasting on the palate. Overall a pretty good quality stout.

(Bottle). Pours a brown black with Thick tan head. Aroma has dried cherry, cocoa, toast and malt. The flavor is deep roasted malts, dark chocolate and some black coffee. I wish this brewer was more widely distributed.
