3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Tap at De Prael Proeflokaal, Amsterdam as Hijs’M 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 I’d have given this a 4 for palate,
but I’d have liked a slightly fuller feel from the oatmeal.
This gets a little sweeter as the glass empties, but it’s still not
too sweet at the bottom. Not at all bad.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.
