A very well done oatmeal stout. Extremely smooth to drink, low on alcohol content. Had a nice chocolately finish and smells like chocolate. Had at home

Wow, ratings all over the place. The one I had was batch 37 I believe. Anyway, I reckon it was a decent session stout, the taste I’ll agree was a bit oatmealy sweet and a bit dry and a little but baltic portery. However decent stuff I’ll say. Serving: Bottle

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle in nonic imperial pint glass: Pours near black with a lovely creamy tan head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of heavy roast and char, oat husks, dark bread, herbal hops and faint soapy note. The taste is very astringent and burnt so that it comes off more akin to a dry stout than a sweet stout which most oatmeal stouts are. Very moderate coffee and oatmeal notes, very minimal sweetness or for that matter hop character. The mouth feel is thin and lively with the expected very ashy finish. Disappointing beer, looks real nice and the aroma is solid enough but the taste/palate are quite lacking.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from La Primera. Batch #27. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head leaving many spots of lace. Aroma has coffee, chocolate, molasses and oats with some caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, roast, some cocoa. Oatmeal over the top of everything is a smoother. Medium bodied or a bit thinner. Finishes to the sweet side of bittersweet and somewhat short. Decent offering. Very easy drinker.

Wonderful coffee aroma and straightforward, full bitterness. Slight soapiness on the top, otherwise nice flavor. Not impressed with the head. Overall a solid entry from Begyle. The aroma may be the best I’ve experienced in a while.

Poured thick black with very little head. Easy to drink with subtle flavors. Malt, oats, caramel, sugar. Some hops. This would be great on tap.
