Decent stout. Better than a guiness. A little malty, a little nutty bitterness. Some roast aromas. Not very sweet really. Pours pretty black. Notes got sketchy by this time of night. On tap at brewpub.

Very interesting, little too heavy but nit in the rest. Good foam and very yeasty.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2005
Pours a black color with a medium creamy light brown head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Enjoyable flavor of chocolate, roasted malt with lactic notes. It’s a nitro stout, so the palate is very smooth and creamy but the body is a tad to light. A good easy to drink stout.

LilBeerDoctor (3440) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2013
On nitro tap. Pours a dark brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma of charred, roasted malt and bitter chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, roasted grains, light char, light chocolate. Solid nitro stout, but fairly simple. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

Coffee and dark chocolate aroma, dark brown,small toffee head. Flavour is a full roast coffee, chocolate comes along afterward. Very sour/bitter, with a much appreciated dry finish. Quite nice.

Le liquide est noir de fumée et sa mousse a un aspect crémeux et dense. Présence d’une dentelle sur le verre. Les arômes détectés me rappellent la raison pour laquelle j’ai toujours adoré cette version proposée par le brasseur du Cheval Blanc : les effluves de torréfaction qui surgissent doucement des entrailles du liquide entrainent avec eux des parfums légers de chocolat sucré. En bouche, le liquide prend beaucoup d’expansion et caresse la langue en laissant, hormis ce goût particulier de l’avoine, des saveurs de torréfaction qui rappellent davantage le café. En finale, le liquide, a la texture granuleuse et veloutée, laisse derrière son passage de notes amères correctes de grains brûlés.

I didnt know this was an oatmeal stout when i had it at the brewpub,but on my 1st drink, i thought o myself, wow, this reminds me of an oatmeal stout, im really getting the oats. I was bang on, great roastiness, and a creamy smooth body,great stout.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2005
Paid by the Pub at the end of a beer tasting evening with PrimeMinister. Perfectly opaque black body topped with a lasting beige creamy head. Malty aroma with roasted coffee notes. Taste is very well balanced. Flavors are mainly malty and coffeeish. Mild and creamy texture. Fair bitter/roasty finish. Enjoyable creamy stout.
