(Bottled, 0.75l) Dark reddish brown with a small head. Aroma of anise, some alcohol, and caramely malt. Roasted-malty flavor with anise and herbs. Medium body, soft carbonation, warming palate. A nicely spicy, lightly warming and decently balanced brew.

750ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Chocolately aroma, slightly leafy, nuttily, some cocoa, a tobacco touch. All flavours are almost identically reproduced in taste. Not flattering, not boring - nice.

Keg @ The Birch. Deep brown with a thick tan head. Nose of strong dark chocolate. Leaf pile. Wood. Cinnamon. Plenty of earth. Taste is interesting. Sort of just off choclolate, interesting. Earthy and dry with a creamy finish. Full and fat. Mellow botanicals. Fun.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

330 ml bottle. Pours a black colour with a thick white head. Strong aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, biscuit and cacao. Flavour of vanilla, chocolate biscuit, roasted malts, almonds and some mild berries. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Rich and tasty, aroma is very interesting as well.
