Deep dark chocolate flavoured stout with subtle notes of liquorice. The use of oats confers a smooth mouthfeel to this strong stout.

Cybercat (3428) - Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Pours a rich, appetizing, dark chocolate brown with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma has notes of roast malt, coffee and licorice. These notes come forth even more in the flavor, which adds a hint of woody hops. Texture is thick and oily, if not very tingly. Go organic!

BroSpud (1716) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 18, 2014
500ml bottle. Label states 7% ABV. Dark brown pour. Very tasty oatmeal stout with strong malt flavors including licorice, chocolate, coffee and candy sugar but not too sweet. Very well done.

mikedR (1302) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Surprised by the low ratings. This a solid oatmeal stout through and through. Best of the best? No. But all the favors are here. Slightly roasty, not overly sweet. But good and solid.

Countbeer (4640) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle: Thanks Craig: Small tan head changes quick into a thin but closed ashy tan lacing on top of a hazy murky blackish brown colored beer. Smell oak, berries, light coal, light ash, liquorice, some toasted malts. Taste berries, toasted malts, toasted wood, light sour, some grains, hops, soap. Pretty nice mostly berries, malts and hops with a sour touch. In the beginning there was a hint of something like plastic garbage bag taste... But just once, luckily. Aftertaste is thin and just some malts, grass, sour fruity and floral. Low carbo, soft creamy light spicy mouthfeel, good medium body and a creamy texture. Not an imperial stout, more a fruity beer or stout or something, but not bad.
