3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark black with lots of dense tan head. Very little nose, just a hint of dark chocolate. Flavours of dark chocolate, roasted malt, some yeast and biscuit notes too. Overall this one is a decent stout that is heavy on the malt chacteristics and not that sweet. I would say it’s a good stout but not one I would run out and buy again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
black with some redish brown at bottom. smells of chocolate raisins,figs,plums,grape. Taste starts of chocolate little roasted and a little salty peanut taste, then raisins,figs,plums, a little grapish . Medium to heavy bodied, a little burn from the 8% and after a while dryes out. It’s like a stout mixed with a high % Belgian beer and watered down a little. A little thin. Doesn’t wow me but nothing sucks about it cheers!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black with a tan head, aroma consists of Belgian yeast and dark rich fruits. Lots of esters, and coffee notes aswell. Tasting notes are quite sweet and include dates, figs, plums, raisins. Belgian yeast, chocolate, coffee, and the oak cask comes through. The finish is spicy, and lingers on the palate. This is perhaps the best beaus offering that I have had!

Pours darker than Tim Hudak’s election platform with a one inch brown sugar cap. Not sure what I’m doing drinking a Belgian stout this time of year but it works. Flavour is deeply exciting: you get a rich velvety stout with bonus swirls of fruity sweetness & profound hops. I like the take on the styles. Recommended & one of the more interesting brews from the Beau’s stable.

500ml bottle, 2012 Best of Beau’s pack. Unfiltered, ruby red edges on a very dark brown body. Large tan head. Aroma of dates, coffee and chocolate. Taste is fruity, Belgian yeast and roasted barley. Body is not light, but lighter than I expected, with lots of carbonation. Overall, it is clearly both Belgian and stout, and it quite good.

Last one from their "Best of Beau’s 2012", but the first one in the Wild Oats Series. Pours a dark brown colour with red highlights. Big frothy mocha head with great retention and a little foamy lace remaining. Aromas of roasted malts, vanilla, alcohol, with hints of grassy hops and chocolate. Nice creamy mouthfeel with a mild warming and slight dry finish. Taste of bananas, spices, mild chocolate and burnt malts, with a hoppy finish. Not as chocolaty as it seems from the description, but a nice Impy Stout that has a bit more hop bite than most others. Real glad I could try this.
