My bottle had the more interesting label with the French press coffee maker on it. As much as I was expecting to be wowed by this, I was really disappointed. The appearance was everything I hoped it would be, but the flavor was too much. In particular, there was a sharp bitterness that wasn’t good...not sure if it was coffee grounds or something else. The coffee wasn’t overly strong as a flavor, though, only its effect. Bottle.

BB 23.03.2018, 0,33L bottle. Pours dark brown with nice brown head. The head stays for a moment. Intense aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, oat, licorine notes. Flavor: oatmeal, coffee, dark chocolate bitterness, slight sourness. Finish is very long, dark chocolate and ash bitter. Overall: it is exactly what label promises - nice oatmeal stout with coffee.

Botella de 50 cl en Cimmeria. Febrero de 2013. Increíble stout con numerosas notas de café. Color negro intenso con espuma algo oscura no muy persistente. Cuerpo medio, menos amarga que su compañera Beer hop Breakfast, Increíble cerveza imprescindible repetir para saborearla de nuevo.

Saeglopur (153) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle from Bierkompass.de. Pitch black body, almost no red reflections, with a medium, creamy, fairly stable, brown head. Complex, deep aromas of roast, wood, dark chocolate, coffee, smoke, liquorice. The taste follows this seemlessly, many coffee and smoke notes and all other aromas that were in the nose in a perfect balance, also the hops are slightly present in the background. And what a mouthfeel! Perfect! Extremely creamy, full, just the right amount of carbonation and a complex, long, bitter, smoky, even slightly dry finish, that releases dark aromas and "dazes" your throat with a smokiness even after minutes. Wow, the ratings are true, never had another Stout that came close to this! Especially the palate is amazing!

Not a lot of sweetness, great coffee taste, oats taste of course. Coffee aroma but not huge. On the swallow you taste coffee, nuts, oats and an aftertaste of bitter chocolate/coffee that lingers. Good stout, just not enough sweetness for me. Needs just a little more sweetness, I think the 7.5 ABV needs to be closer to 9

Lucky enough to have the opportunity to but this guy consistently, almost take it for granted. Pours an oily and viscous black with no highlights to be seen in the dim lighting of this room. A fluffy off tan head compacts into a single finger of sense froth already lacing the glass. The nose is slightly metallic to start, roasting coffee, fresh and hot roll off the nose. The standard dark chocolate notes intermingle with a touch of smoke floating about. Extremely enticing, barely can withstand not drinking it. First taste brings dark chocolate and toasty oats. Reminds me of slightly burnt oatmeal and scorched brown sugar. It feels a little light on the palate which isn’t to my preference, but it’s only a shade shy from perfection for me. Drying out on cocoa powder, espresso and some spicy pepper, this beer is absolutely tantalizing. Something I can drink again and again and never get bored of.

Black with a thin milk-chocolate coloured head. Strong aroma of roast malt, chocolate, coffee, liquorice. Taste sweet with a strong sour and bitter finish, really well balanced. Oily texture, low carbonation, could be a little thicker? Really good beer.

Rating #880 - January 4, 2014 - Week 1 of #beerguychrisgeekbeer - a 52 week craftbeer project on instagram. Pours a thick black with a tan head. Nose is toasted malt, coffee grinds, woodsmoke. Taste is more of these flavours, solid bitterness from the roasted malt and hop character. Lots of coffee flavour and the thick mouthfeel expected of oatmeal stouts. Superbly balanced. Worthy.
