Cremy, purely milky and the palate is perfect for the style. Dark and nice head. Very good beer

Very tasty beer. Taste of roasted malt with a slight burn, has some vanilla and a hint of the lactose. Good.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 23, 2014
Sweet dark malts, some cacao ban acidity, English hop. mocha and generally just very wort-like (yeah... I know good description for a beer). Surprisingly rich taste, milky mouth feel and smooth carbonation that lifts up an interesting and nice sweet malt mix. Certainly enough bitterness for the style, but it is the chocolate milk body that steals the show. This all makes but a much more interesting and yet balanced beer than I expected. Really nice brew! (33cl bottle from SpeciaalBierPakket)

caesar (4950) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
Bottled from Biernavigatie, BB Jan/Feb 2016, large sample, served in a trappist glass. Pours a dark redbrown color with a big frothy brown head, leaving some nice lacing. Aroma of grainy oat, some milk chocolate, roast, licorice, bit too high on yeast esters (from english/irish strain I think?). Bit sweet in taste, bit bitter. Quite creamy. Spicy licorice. Leaves a sugary and sticky palate. Most oatmeal stouts turn out to be licorice bombs in the Netherlands, where I prefer them to be more clean and creamy. I think its the combination of yeast esters (too high fermentation temperature? too stressed yeast?) and roasted malts that give this high amounts of fruity and spicy licorice.

RW80 (544) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2014
33cl bottle Appearance: almost black beer with a creamy beige head on top, ok retention light lacing. Aroma:Chocolate Milk, light roated malts, cream, oatmeal Taste: sweet roasted malts, cvreamy aroma. Cream, chocolade Milk medium body, thin carbonation. Slight sourness in the finish. Smooth drinker, but it lacks complexity, but what do you expect with a Dutch name that translates into "Pour it"

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle. Almost black and opague. Grainy roasty cvreamy aroma. Cream, rye bread, some sour milky notes and chocolate cake in the flavor. Easy drinker, sweet, quite likeable.

FatPhil (9152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2014
(Tap at De Prael Proeflokaal, Amsterdam as HijsM oatmeal stout) Very dark brown, opaque, with a ring head on top. Roasted and maple aroma, with a bit of dark chocolate. Some maple in the mouth also, along with dark bread.
Fairly soft in the mouth, and Id have given this a 4 for palate, but Id have liked a slightly fuller feel from the oatmeal.
This gets a little sweeter as the glass empties, but its still not too sweet at the bottom. Not at all bad.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark, almost black beer with a creamy beige head on top. Aroma of oatmeal porridge, chocolate milk and slight roast. Flavor is sweet chocolate, caramel malts with a milky touch to it. Nicely balanced, soft oily mouthfeel. Long, light cloying sweet aftertaste. Nice surprise by both these breweries.
