3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle as a gift from the brewery shop:
Roasted malts and a bit of oats in there initially, along with some sweetness and toffee. It smells quite lively on the nose and has some chocolate as well as hints of fruit and berries too.
Dark brown with a thumb-sized, bubbly head that is an off-white to light brown colour and holds for about a minute or so.
Sweet malts and oats with more chocolate and caramel than was suggested by the aroma. Creamy tasting around the middle to end with some good hits of chocolate and toffee plus some fruits coming through. A nice beer but not one that seems overly stout like in its taste.
Light medium bodied but strong and very lively carbonation with a lot of fizz, particularly for the style but doesnít seem gassy, whilst somehow makes the beer an easy one to drink.
Not a bad beer at all and not your typical stout either, this one was definitely more lively although the usual mix of roasted malts and chocolate was present but there was also a nice, fruity taste lurking in the background.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Booths Penrith. Sweet medium roast aroma, not the deep black it claims to be, more a ruby black colour. Nice fizz midway, reasonable body, maybe a touch one dimensional, but as a fan of oatmeal stouts, this is fine enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ Diggers, Edinburgh 
Dark caramel brown, dense off white head, some lacing
Aroma of roasted malts, touch ashy, dab of burnt toasted bread
Taste of roasted malt, dab of plain chocolate, some dark berry fruits on sides of tongue, bit restricted in flavour but the fruits come out in the finish
Palate - thin to medium body. Finish as main flavour with red berries dunked in plain chocolate
Overall - Not really a stout to me - more a light porter/premium bitter/dark lager hybrid - mishmash of styles. Itís meant to be an oatmeal stout....???. Itís not bad, itís actually the best beer iíve had from this brewery - the finish is flavoursome but itís rather flat in the middle

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Live rate. Bottle from Boothís, Kendal. Dark ruby with a honeycombed tan head subsiding to a slick. Good chocolatey, well-toasted aroma scattered with rust and reminiscent of a black Czech/German lager. Rusted, sweet chocolate, digestive and iron filing flavours with a dunk of Twiglet. Thin bodied for a stout- again more of a dark lager vibe. Black cherry hints as it approches room temperature. It didnít make it. Pretty good.
