2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark, roasted malts and lighter coffee notes along with some dark chocolate to begin with. There is some grain and barely too.
Dark, mahogany brown with a thin & bubbly, half-centimetre head that is light brown & stays throughout.
Dark malts, some milky coffee and a little roasted barely account for most of the taste here but not in a manner that I enjoyed. The finish was a bitter hops one.
Quite thin in body with a lot more carbonation than I would have preferred, it almost feels like I’m drinking a cola.
Really disappointing to me, I didn’t find it particularly well balanced or flavourful with too much fizz, I can’t see what all the fuss is about here. Not a fan.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Gordon and MacPhail, Elgin.
Appearance - very dark brown with ruby edges, 1 finger off white head.
Aroma - roast malt, milk chocolate, hint of coffee.
Taste - sweet malt, roast malt, some bitter hop, hint of coffee and chocolate, bit disappointing after inital aroma.
Palate - watery for stout, quite thin mouthfeel, dull finish slight roast and hop bitterness.
Overall - Quite a nice beer, but as a stout rather bland and watery, not much silkiness from the oats, flavours a bit too subdued.
An above-average beer, but as a stout below average.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
03/03 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured dark brown, almost black body with small brown head. Fine coffee, wood, caramel and peat (even smoked meat) scents perspire from the glass. Similar very fine flavor, except mentioned things showed up some chocolate as well. Balanced between sour and sweet, in yet thinner body, it had sourish coffee and smoked finish. This nice brew made me like the brewery for the beer itself, after I was first attracted with nice labels, well, what can I do when I like Oatmeal Stouts!
