Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Nearly black. Thick, dense, lasting, tan head. Great looking beer. Nose has ripe blackberry. Tangy, roast coffee bean. Light malts. Notes of milky coffee. Taste has bitter roast malts. Nice tang of dark berry. Medium body. Touch too much fizz, maybe. Roast malt bitter finish. Looks fantastic, and is super tasty at the ABV.

500ml bottle (Ales by Mail)
Woh, apple aroma, and solvents I could clean my paintbrush with. Some roast behind that. Porridgy mashy body, some gluey aspects. Harsh burnt finish. Rough and dirty mess. WTF apple? This is off.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Iíll be having more of this. Right down the middle of what an oatmeal stout should be. Strong but not an imperial stout. Sweet with tastes of chocolate, coffee and caramel from malt. Not a lot of taste coming from the hops (ok maybe that could be the only weakness but then again this matches a traditional stout). Well done.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled; rated at home; 1st May 2015.
Opaque with baige lacing. It kinda shot out of the glass a bit so I hope itís not too bad a bottle. Head retention is excellent. No faults there.
Aroma is chocolate chip cookies; burnt oak; cold espresso cream; spruce pine; grains and leather. Taste is leather; velvet; backcurrants; chocolate cookies; some sugar residue and clotted cream and cold espresso.
Itís a nice example of a stout. I enjoyed this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured deep dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of roast malt, dark fruit, coffee grinds and chocolate. Light body, flavour is much as the aroma. Not bad for the low ABV.

Cask at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden on 25th January 2015. Sepia-black with pale tan foam and chunky lacing. Rich and intense roasty aroma with coffee notes. Intense roastiness in-mouth with coffee flavours and spicy touch. Finish rather sweeter, with caramel roasty malts. Fair amount of body and an engaging texture. Well-crafted stout.
