Pours a dark black color with a roasted barley aroma. Flavor is true oatmeal, mixed with chocolate hops. Slight bitter yet smooth finish, with oatmeal taste dominating the beer.

nearbeer (4014) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2015
1 L swingtop. Pours jet and opaque with a thin disc of foam resembling a lunar landscape. Nose is bittersweet chocolate, caramel, chicory coffee with cream, and a touch of smoky iron. Tastes of blackstrap molasses, coffee with cream, prickly green herb, a bit of blackberry and cocoa. Near-medium body is watery and leans to the sweet side, but the acidic roast and slightly metallic mineral note provides a nice balance. Medium-high carbonation never becomes overbearing.

wolffish (310) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2015
Parfum agréable de marc de café et de céréales grillées... Au goût, c’est un peu mince (aqueux) et on note un côté terreux et un brin lactique à la fois. Très bon stout!!

Part of a beer being good for me is that is can back up the claims that it makes. This fine beer delivers on all fronts and doesn’t pretend to be something else. It’s a big, black, tan topped, chewy bodied pal. One litre of pure ebony goodness in a bottle; big chocolate and roasted malt notes comprise both nose and taste, some light nuttiness as well. The mouthfeel is just great, not too flat but instead with some bite and a satisfying chomp. I would drink this anytime.
