4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured black, with nice 2 inch chocolate head. Aroma of chocolate, and malts that wafted through the air as I poured. Flavor of malt, chocolate, coffee, some kinda of fruit in the end, coffee, and oats/grains. Roasty throughout. Very drinkable. dry. Smooth. Not much acidity, and for me that’s nice. Not to thick in the palate.

Poured from bottle that I’ve held on to for probably too long now, pours black with a thin head, aroma is sweet with a decent amount of chocolate and sweet malt, the flavor has a nice coffee front end with a sweet chocolate finish, nice thick mouthfeel, good stuff.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bière noire de 5% d’alcool. Elle possède un long col au versement. Elle est très goûteuse et possède comme un goût de café, de torréfaction forte et amère, un peu comme du chocolat noir. Elle possède un odorat de café. Très bonne bière froide !

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a short 2cm of disappearing khaki head, medium lacing. Nose is espresso, oats and cocoa, mostly savoury. Taste is lots of roasted malt, touch of vanilla, soy, raisins and cocoa. Not super rich flavours, thinner body than anticipated but as far as a sessionable stout goes, this has to be up there.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013/05/09 - Pours an opaque brown (cola-like) with a creamy tan head that laces nicely. Aroma is oats, coffee and slight chocolate. Taste is similar to nose, but slightly metallic with a lingering bitter cocoa aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with more carbonation than expected and a drying finish. Good but not great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich aroma. Pours a deep rich color. It has a pleasant chocolate and malt taste. The only flaw is its a little watery. I wish it was richer and a bit more complex.

2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
A - A big bubbled mocha head sits on top of a black body. Specs of lacing left behind.
S - Rich chocolate mousse, intense vanilla. Very sweet aromas.
T - Bitter dark chocolate, roasted malts, much more roasty than the aroma. Slightly metallic, dry roasted oats, butter, with a touch of sour.
The hops don’t seem to blend well with the rest of the flavors. Finishes dry.
M - Full bodied, moderate carbonation.
Wow the nose is awesome for an oat stout! The taste doesn’t quite deliver like the aroma. Something seemed to be off in the flavor which brings down drinkability.
