Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of pepsican. Pours black and opaque with a dense and creamy light brown head leaving a neat lacework. Hard roasted malt aroma with some coffee touches. Medium body, hard roasted malt and ashes with an extremely dry malt bitter finish. Nice though. 290509

Blind tasting at Papsø’s
Black color; nice head, creamy. Strong aroma of roasted malt, coffee and cardboard. The mouthfeel is thin, with an extremely aggressive flavor of burnt malt, from the flavor to the palate; by any means difficult to drink. Monodirectional, extreme, bad.

From bottle, blind #25. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Roasted malt aroma, vague smoked touch and chocolate/coffee touch with a nice hoppy touch. Coffee herbal flavoured with a dry hoppy base. Medium malt base with a distinct roasted note. Ashtray like hoppy dry finish with a distinct roasted malt base. Increasing dry into the far finish.

Sammy (8631) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2009
Pours lack with huge off-white head, leaving some lace. Roasty and malty aroma. Rather average mouthfeel for an oatmeal stout, with a distinct but not extreme biter finish. Rather easy drinking though under-par compared to readily available oatmeal stouts, such as St. Ambroise.

Black pour with the smallest tan head ever. Aroma of some chocolate, some oatmeal.Flavor is chocolatey, kind of burnt. A bit watery, a bit thin. its ok, but kind of meh.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2009
Thanks Cletus! Poured quick and thin into the glass, black with a small tan head. Burnt grain, no oatmeal on the nose to speak of. Light in body, but still has a bit of syrup on the tip of my tongue. Little charcoal notes remind me of summer and this light bodied brew would go good with grilled meats and potato salad.

Pours to a dark brown body with a creamy tan head. The aroma is oatmeal and a light milk chocolate. The flavor is charred chocolate and light oatmeal. The palate is lightly charred with a light watery but oatmeal like texture.
