3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Une belle surprise envoyée par ontbeermaker) Une robe noire avec un anneau de mousse brune. Un nez pleinement rôti et torréfié avec des touches cendrées et de bons parfums de café. Une pointe de douceur agréable et invitante. Des saveurs bien mordantes de malts rôtis avec une fumée latente et des grains de café qui transpirent la cendre. Une expression chocolatée juste et équitable. Une bouche ronde avec un pétillement modéré. Une texture crémeuse. Une finale amère et justement longue de torréfaction. Un très bon stout.

draught at the Wooly. Deep black colour, brown head. Aroma was all coffee. A little underwhelming, but I think it was served a little too cold. Taste is dark roast, coffee, a touch of licorice in the aftertaste. On a dreary rainy day, this was a very enjoyable beer.

I tried this beer on draught on November 18, 2011 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer pours a sold dark brown with a medium brown foamy head. The aroma is mocha, coffee, and vanilla. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavour was coffee, chocolate, anise, and vanilla

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This oatmeal stout poured a deep black colour with a beautiful, light brown, creamy head. To the nose there are scents of coffee, cocoa, roasted malt and cream. First sip was smooth and very coffee flavourful. Other flavours of cocoa, caramel and burnt toast aswell. Finish was very roasty with coffee flavours lingering forever.

Aroma solid aroma. Good clean coffee roast. Feel of dark barley and starch/ Ligh notes of hops.8-

Flavor and Palate : Frontal bitterness with hint of smoke. Dark roast right behind followed by lighter chewy character. Raw bitterness adds positive feel to already solid impression. Well done.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 * UP-RATE* Blacky brown with a big fat brown head. BIG aromas of coffee chocolate rich malt. Lemony hop. Taste roasty and rich-malty, with long flavors of dry and fruity coffee (not grounds-y which is good.) Like!! ** ORIG RATE ** Presents dark brown w/ tinge of red - sm tan head. Sweet smell of roast malt, excellent earthy-mineral aroma and toffee. Taste roast, sweet coffee and faint coca, with a narrow note of lemon hops, and a slight plasticky middle note. Very late finish is lightly roasty, dry, citrus. Overall competent. 7 4 7 3 12 = 3.3

On tap at Volo. Very smooth and flavourful, but a bit thin-bodied for the flavours it encompassed.
