3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from Bier Stein. Slightly opaque brown pour with a whiff of tan head and slight lacing. Smells sweet, like chocolate, cream and light coffee. Maybe a little caramel thrown in as well. Tastes fairly sweet as well, with a lot of chocolate backed by caramel, oats, cream and coffee. A well constructed stout, even if it is a little sweeter than I normally prefer.

Baie Lekker! Bottle. Pours black with medium beige fast dissipating head. Moderate lacing. Cocoa and oatmeal aroma, with a tinge of coffee. Full but mild flavour, more cocoa and oatmeal. Sweet finish, but not cloying, there is enough bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a pitch black body with a small fizzy light brown head that ran to a thin ring. The nose is very roasty and thick with some oats and a touch of butterscotch. Smells fairly sweet. The flavor is thick, sweet, and roasty with a lingering sweetness. A little earthy yeast and just a touch of butter on the finish, not much, but it is there. Mouthfeel is fairly thick, a little oily in texture, with soft minimal carbonation. Overall, not the best, but it was drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Brew 1372. Poured medium-viscosity deep brown with a yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up very sweet toasted cocoa, molasses, and vanilla with some oat backing.. a little char to darken it up.. very nice presentation. The flavor found rolled oats, molasses, and black patent maltage with lots of vanilla and come coffee bitterness around the edges.. toasty, sweet, and tasty. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate, despite the hefty sweetness present.. not quite as smooth a feel as I wanted, but mighty enjoyable aside from that!
