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.

30ml bottle. Comes out of the bottle like engine oil, thick and black looking with a low even coffee coloured head. Deep rich chocolate aromas penetrate deep into the nose and burnt woody flavours lead to a dry finish. Smooth in the mouth and very pleasant to drink.

It’s syrupy black with a dark tan head, it is exactly as the label suggest, a chocolate oatmeal sweet stout, usually chocolate stouts come out really bitter but this is well balanced.

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.

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.

From a bottle. Roasted flavours are balanced with the chocolate, smooth and thick, good stuff.

Pours jet black with a large tan creamy head showing great persistence. Aroma shows lots of milk chocolate, roasted barley and creamy oats. Impressive. Flavours are not quite as complex, but include roasted barley, smoke, and finish with a mild bitterness. Creamy body, slightly thin in my opinion though. A very nice creamy, milky stout.

Nice. Looks for all the world like an RIS upon pouring with an orange head. Sweet fruity chocolate on the nose with a tangy note. Good lift. Chocolate slips into the milk chocolate spectrum on the nose but the palate is quite light with roast and a clear hoppy impact late. Very attractive beer.

Maris (1226) - 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.

Pours jet black with a nice tan head that settles pretty quickly. Nose has alot of dry roast, coffee & dark dusty choc. Palate translates well, choc notes dominating but has good balance. Lively carbonation dres up the palate & makes it very creamy. Finishes with dry roasted malt notes lingering. Overall a very good stout, pretty robust in the choc department but still very balanced with coffee notes. As said below is quite delicate yet robust.
