Er lidt skuffet over denne øl. Jeg forventer lidt mere smag af en oatmeal stout. Den har smagen af oatmeal, den er lidt syrlig og brændt smag, men jeg synes der mangler noget.

Bottle. This is a pretty straight forwar stout without too much going on. Not bad though.

12 oz. bottle under the name of Kinmount Willie. Pours dark brown in color with a medium sized beige head that lasted. The aroma and flavor had dark and milk chocolate, dark fruits and light roast. Medium body with smooth mouth feel. Just a bit thin and watery.

kramer (5912) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small fizzy light brown head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is lightly roasty with some coffee and tobacco along with a moderate caramel sweetness. The flavor is a little off for me, there’s a heavy toffee and caramel sweetness that pervades the roast that I want from a Stout. Minimal to no bitterness present, I suppose this is attempting to be a mix of a Scotch Ale and a Stout, but that combo just doesn’t do it for me. Medium bodied with a touch of clingy sweetness and a soft fizzy carbonation level. Meh, think I’d pass on a second go around with this one.

(Bottle). Smell and taste of roasted malt, chocolate and smoke. A little thin in body but ok.

Very black stout, no head. Small roasted aroma but with minimum flavour, however it is certainly a drinkable session ale.

DarkSideOfBeer (47) - Padova, ITALY - DEC 19, 2012
Bottiglia. Interpretazione scozzese di una oatmeal stout,color rubino/marrone intenso, retrogusto di caffè e di torrefatto,leggermente troppo frizzante per il genere ma nel complesso buona e beverina

Opaque dark brown beer, short lived tan head. Light palate with mild carbonation. Mild dark malts with traces of coffee and chocolate. Very minerally, leading to a metallic note before the finish.
