A milky, smoky nose. Thick-ish with burnt malt and coffee flavors. I like how much that coffee and roast contributes. I feel the oats late in the throat. It’s a little too smoky for me but you can tell it’s a good beer and you can tell who makes it.

Pours a nice brown/black color with no real head retention or lacing. Has an off smell, but tastes like lightly burnt coffee and dark chocolate. A good beer that is a victim of its appearance.

Black with a small brown head. Aroma of coffee, smoke, chocolate, licorice and pine. Taste is bitter, mild sweet and very light acidic. It is well balanced and has a long after-taste. Body is full, texture is creamy and carbonation is soft.

Now this I like! Wasn’t sure what to expect from a Norwegian stout but it more than delivered. Rich, deep flavour with the right amount of coffee kick at the end, lovely.

Pite na wyjeździe z butelki. W zapachu bez zaskoczeń: kawa i paloność. Smak wytrawny, intensywny aromat palonej kawy, minimalna czekolada na początku, kawowa kwaśność, palona goryczka.

Bottle. Pours a dark black with a mocha head. Smells of roasted malts, chocolate malt. Not getting much coffee, so this is likely an older bottle. (No date.) Tastes of roasted malts, cocoa. A medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is soft, a touch creamy. Lightly bitter, drying finish.

Bottle, pours black and tan. Roast, espresso, pine, citrus, chocolate. Quite some hop bitterness, creamy, medium body, average carbonation, bitter chocolate and coffee finish. Nice (if you like coffee), not too complex.

Black as hell with a dark tan head. Bitter coffee and creamy malts. Dark chocolate. Delicious. A really perfect oatmeal stout. I like the ones which might include a little vanilla personally, but this is really great.
