COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with local oats from Flahaven’s mills and coffee specially roasted by Badger and Dodo, the oatmeal imparts a rich smoothness which balances the roasted flavours of the barley while in the background there’s a subtle hint of the earthy espresso flavours.

500ml, currently enjoying with friends so this must be short! Superb stout, better than last years IMO. Great with food or just a session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McTapps (4070) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle from Culchiem - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with low creamy head and medium body. Aroma of malt and coffee. Taste of intense malt, torf, coffee, espresso, chocolate and leaves. Earthy finish. Very easy and nice to drink with a light smokey finish. Nice and enjoyable beer.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle. A dense, finger-thick, dark beige head over a clear, reddish dark brown body. Coffee, roasted malts and some dark chocolate on the nose, along with a touch of dried fruits. There’s a nice hoppy bitterness in the flavor, balancing roasted malts, coffee and some chocolate. A touch of dried fruits too. Medium to full body, smooth carbonation, although a bit sharp due to the roasted malts. Lasting finish with roasted malts and coffee. A pleasant one. 120218

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle, 4.5%. Slightly citric aroma. Black colour, small light brown head. The flavour is roasted with a little coffee. The mouthfeel is a little thin for an oatmeal stout, but OK, I guess. The flavour is good, for the ABV anyway.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2011
Pours dark black with a medium-small head. Gentle roasted aroma, some coffee and a very restrained sweetness. The oatmeal flavour is quite mild, and the beer is definitely on the dry side. Coffee and tar are strong, with a long dry finish. Nice firm body and a slightly sticky texture that seems odd in a dry beer.
