Pours an opaque black with a medium brown-ish head that leaves really good lacing. Nose is of roasted grains, chicory and sweet milk. Taste is of bitter roasted malt, slight ash and coffee. Pretty dry as advertised. Body is medium and carbonation moderate and just there to enhance drinkability. Overall a really drinkable stout without too much ash or sugar, good.

From a 500 ml bottle into a pint. Pours a deep deep dark brown with a nice, thick pale brown head with good retention. Tastes of strong chocolate and moka, with a pleasant bitterness. Really enjoyed its thickness and creamy texture. Definitely a great oatmeal stout!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL bottle in trade from SlovakSniper. Merci, Pat! Almost black, with only some garnet hues getting through where the glass thins. The brown head fades quickly. Nice roast malt aroma suggests a black coffee with one sugar. A hint of fruit as well. The flavour is excellent, with a hint of spice distinguishing it from the crowd. Good body and carbonation. Nice beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lots of burnt barley on the nose and little else. Jet black body with a very dark but thin head on top. Flavour is roasted barley, but not roasted well enough to translate into coffee or chocolate; it comes off as incomplete. Palate is slightly weak. It’s a drinkable stout that is just missing some critical elements.
