A fine oatmeal stout, but nothing too interesting. Tastes and smells a bit like oatmeal, nothing much else. Had on tap at La Trappe.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample from Erica at p house, pours clearish brown color with no head or lace to note. Pretty thin mouth and body. Notes are roasted malt, grains, milk chocolate, and some oats but no real oatmeal flavor. Apple yeast or something in the nose. Not good

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 10/2013
A gusher unexpected, one fourth went straight on my kitchen table. Aroma is musty with spices, some bitter cocoa and hints of bush leaves. Flavour is spicy with cocoa and peppery tones. Also some dark chocolate. Finishes with some rubbery bitterness. A bit watery and flat, not my thing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Blue Palms, Hollywood. Good foam on a clear, deep cola pour. Weak lace. Sweet strawberry nose, short cake. Turns out almost all of the beers on tap at Blue Palms today had a strawberry nose. Must have decided to skip tap line cleaning this afternoon. Sweet cola and big grenadine comes through. Boozy, sweet body with sweeter strawberry. Strange. Thinner body. Sugary and cloying. Medicinal.

500ml bottle at Maxs. Deep orange-black. Rim lacing beige head. Pronounced sweet chocolate dessert aroma, not roasty. Tastes overly sweet, very brownie like. Hardly a world class product....chocolate syrup. OK maybe, but definitely not worth a premium price.
