3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Une bouteille de 12 onces partagée avec Yan, alias rodenbach99. Pas tout à fait noir. Un anneau comme représentation mousseuse. Nez invitant de tabac sucré, de chocolat au lait et de café. Goût de bois fumé, de malts chocolatés et de caramel. Bouche un peu molle et un peu mince. Finale de chocolat au lait avec une fine amertume de grains noirs. Facilement appréciable.

Bottle. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma with oatmeal notes. Pours dark brown with a thin light brown head and very little lacing. Roasted malt with some chocolate to start. Finished smooth with oatmeal notes with the chocolate sweetness lingering on the palate. Good stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A great stout for cold winter days. Can’t really smell or taste the oatmeal, but a satisfying drink nevertheless.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Holiday stout under nitro! Strong malt and chocolate flavor with enough strength and bitterness to emphasize the style! Offered as a holiday ale, but could be good year round!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark brown in color, this winter ale has a nose of an oatmeal stout, with cold and dark roasted malts. It has a nice, roasted, dull palate that’s a little dry. The flavor is mostly of roasted malts softened slightly by oats. This beer appears to get very good reviews from others, but I’m not so sure what’s so spectacular about this. I’m not really impressed at all.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a creamy chocolate brown head. Sweet aroma initially with malt and caramel followed by some hints of coffee. Flavor is sweet upfront but finishes with a little hop bite. I get toasted malt for that smokey flavor, some vanilla and caramel along with sweet malt and some bitter hops and coffee at the end. It’s good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours near black with a light beige head. Sweet and lightly roasted malts, some light notes of almost rotten fruits, and a hint of chocolate. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark beer with some cola colored hints around the edges. Only the thinnest slick of tan bubbles for a head. Nose of roasted grains some coffee. Full flavored stout with lots of roasted grains, molasses, some bitter coffee and burnt toast. Smooth mouth feel with a long coffee bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable stout.
