Bottled (thanks TBone!). Very much black colour, small brown head. Aroma is nutty, chocolaty, mild liquorice, ashes and some sweet malts. Flavour is mild lactic notes, chocolate, ashes, old coffee and some slight roasted notes. Feels very strong and bodied for being 4.7 %...

35,5 cl bottle @ home, BBE 05/2013
Aroma is sweetish and somewhat tart with oat, cocoa, coffee and hints of licorice. Flavour is somewhat tart with oat, chocolate, some cocoa, citrus and hints of orange. Nice, I like the roastiness and chocolate aromas here. The sour and/or tart notes are too strong though.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki) Finnish version at 4.7%
Pours like cola, head only lasts a matter of seconds. Rich sweet puddingy roast aroma - very nice hints of coffee and chocolate. A bit thin and dead in the mouth. None of the fullness I expect off an oatmeal stout. Not a bad taste, but doesn’t match the fun and fullness of the aroma. Decent roast, but a bit ashy, leading to some acidity. Leaves you with a burnt and noble hop tingle, but alas it’s a bit unsatisfying. Drink quickly, as it tastes worse and worse as it warms. I’m getting some metallic tastes now, and it’s quite dirty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle (4,7 % ABV). Black, with a thin brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, with coffee and smoky notes. The flavour is dryish, roasted malty, with coffee, notes of berries, ash and smoke. Very tasty, although a bit watery on the palate - the higher ABV version might be better in this respect.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, black 4.7%. Soft coffee, roasted malts. Milk chocolate. Body is soft, a bit milk shaky. Very nice, as oatmeal stouts tend to be. Roasted malts, milky chocolate. Nice, a bit watery though.
