5.8% On tap at Hashigo Zake, Wellington NZ Poured with a towering head that had excellent retention and lacing Aroma: sweet, with oats, chocolate and red wine. Flavor: better and more true to style that the aroma. Mild dark roasted grains and oatmeal in the aftertaste. Feel: full body is very smooth. O: a solid oatmeal stout with a somewhat peculiar aroma.

maneliquor (2785) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle in Adelaide. Big fluffy off white head sits on top of a dark brown body for the duration. Nose is dominated by coffee, vanilla and roasted malts. A hint of liquorice. Taste is all coffee and roasted malts. A hint of chocolate and liquorice. Pretty spot on when it comes to the style it's just a little borking and one dimensional to be honest ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown, near black color. Some ruby highlights. Light brown collar or film. Some ABV legs. Nose is sweet chocolate, sweet rolled oats, caramel, and notes of coffee. Oats were bigger in the tap version of this. Coffee is a bit muted Taste is of chocolate, caramel, oats and coffee. Coffee is bigger in the taste and the sweet oats are also bigger and bolder. Touches of maple syrup. Medium bodied and a bit over carbonated. Decent bitter coffee finish with a smooth melted caramel and oat finish. Some touches of vanilla and licorice in the mouth. For style it is right but a bit meh. Was much better on tap.

Brenhophead (524) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2012
330mL bottle. Pours a fairly thin black with a massive half glass tanish head (not aggressively pours, quit the oppersite). Charred notes in the aroma and also in the flavour with a slight coffee plus liquorice note. That is the 4th beer from Lobethal that i have had that has been so over carbonated that i needed to leave it for 10-30mins to settle before i drank it which is not ideal. In its current state i would not recommend picking up any beer from this brewery they have a long way to go.

Maris (914) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2012
From a 330ml bottle on 11/8/2012 (batch no. OS-014, bottles May 2012). Pours a tar colour with a small head. The aroma is primarily of roasted malt, some chocolate and a dash of caramel. The flavour is mostly a combo of dark and sweet milk chocolate, with a touch of coffee, smoke and roasted malt. Finishes quite dry. The body is medium and the carbonation a shade higher than typical for a stout. A very solid, enjoyable stout.

Dredd (684) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2012
Just about spot on for a Chocolate Stout. Pour is dark, dark brown bordering on jet black with tan head. Aroma is faint chocolate and initial tasting is silky smooth malts with a mild finish. The bottle I have has some age on it so there is no graininess on the finish. A nice reward for forgetting about it! It is the kind of beer that as you sip, type and rate, you just want to nudge the ratings a few points higher.

jonno (2130) - JAPAN - MAY 11, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2011 Bottle. Strong chocolate maltesers nose. Smooth thin to medium body. Fair bit of chocolate with a little caramel. Very smooth with a moderate bitter finish. Well made beer.

davidm (1926) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle 330ml. Exceptional beer. Aromas of milk chocolate, coffee, and liquorice. Taste is sweet, with a long-lasting bitter finish. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black, with a frothy off-white head. Great.

hawthorne00 (2255) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle. Black, good coat of tan head. Chocolate, coffee, roast malt, vanilla, ash aroma. A little sourness and an unwelcome touch of metal. Smooth mouthfeel, not as silky as some sweet stouts. Taste has coffee and roasted malt with cocoa. Cocoa bitter finish. A bit more sweetness would have let the flavours off the leash - this never quite opened up for me.

Pyobon (860) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle. Very dark brown black with some tan head. Pleasant aroma with chocolate and sweet fruit. Full body with modest but creamy and frothy carbonation. The taste starts with sweet mat and some tangy fruitiness, giving way to dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee and some spice and this pleasant taste lingers for a very long time. Overall this is a very well done chocolate stout. It is balanced, rich and complex.
