Theis (12739) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 14, 2014
Bottle at TimEís place - Tokyo Tasting. Pitch black - offwhite head. Burned, lots of burned malts, light sweetness, licorice, coffee, ok hoppy, some bitterness - hops and burned malts, carcoal. Lovely.

DKL (46) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 4, 2014
Pitch black beer with a dark coffee head. Very smooth mouthfeel, with strong cacao / coffee flavours and lots of burnt caramel. A bitterness that balances the sweetness very well, like quality dark chocolate. Outstandingly drinkable for such a strong flavoured beer.

Quite tasty although not the best oatmeal stout that I have ever tasted. Probably wouldnít get it again because I think there are better oatmeal stouts out there.

Awesome drinkability on this one. Smooth as you like, long lingering finish. Well put together and one of the better stouts out there.

jinroh (262) - ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2014
Big black beer with a massive beige head. Aroma is relatively hoppy, spicy, fruity and velvety. Taste has also something soft going on, maybe coming from oatmeal. Strong roasted flavours that are nicely balanced with malt backbone and fragrant hops.

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 22, 2014
Dark brown color. Very big oatmeal and roasted malt nose. A bit sweet. Medium body, chocolate cookies with lots of oatmeal. Very smooth body. Really well balanced and very enjoyable. Long lingering chocolate and oatmeal finish with moderate bitter finish.

ComradeK (922) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a moderate beige head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. Dark chocolate, Vienna coffee and hazelnut make up the aroma. Mild spice hops up front give way to roasty malt and milk chocolate in the mid-palate. Bittersweet dark chocolate comes into the finish, leaving a cocoa aftertaste. This isnít the most complex stout Iíve had, but itís certainly not too bad either.

330ml bottle pours black with tan head. Amazing well balanced slightly fruity sweet drip. Well done

I always feel that Iím going against the grain when I donít like a beer. This ors have chocolate notes but there is a persistent and annoying bitterness that is carrying it. I know that you could expect both but these are out of balance. in my opinion.
