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

Pour is a thin black with a small tan head. Aroma is a decent roasted oat with a bit of char thrown in for good measure. Flavor is a nice roast and char malt all around. Maybe a bit too thin but the roast and charred oat leave a nice flavor on the tongue. Pretty nice oatmeal stout. Plenty of roasted oat flavor with being over the top. Alcohol is hidden quite nice as well.

Bottle from Dan at Christmas. We had last night after Dan’s graduation dinner at Bad apples. Dark black pour with a light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, oats, chocolate and a slight sweetness. Very smooth tasting, sweet, creamy, roastd malt, all around well balanced taste. Nice lacing on the glass.

Honestly not even close to the better Stouts I have had. Disappointing. I don’t know what it is.

Leighton (18710) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle shared at Craig’s. Vintage c. 2008. Pours deep brown with a creamy beige head. The nose has some faded toast, light apple. Light sweet flavor with tangy burnt wood, leathery berries, earth, cherry. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Oily. Tangy dark malts in the finish, further tangy berries, old wood. So so.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of light toffee, liquorice. Taste is light sweet, oatmeal, light roast, light acetone probably due to age.

Cybercat (5169) - 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 (2065) - , 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.
