Extra in a trade from Errl. Thanks man! Terrific oatmeal stout. Rich dark roast coffee and malt aromas. Thick with the slightest translucense at the edges against a light. Fast fading head with lasting lacing. Terrific oatmeal stout palate with full body. Great characteristic flavors for the style. Alcohol totally hidden. One of the best oatmeal stouts I’ve had in a while. Not stellar, just gets it ALL right.

Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s deep brown with a small white head. The nose is molasses, and chocolate. Some cinnamon and maple syrup sweetness. A bit woody, hints of roasted coffee.

Scopey (7180) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012. It pours very dark brown, with pretty much no head. The nose is sticky caramel, toffee, chocolate, touch of balsamic vinegar and wood. The taste is roasted malt, wood, leather, charcoal, bitter chocolate and caramel, with a dry, leathery finish. Medium body and low, slightly prickly carbonation. Not much to it, but a decent enough beer.
