UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 Bottle, 12C. Dark brown with a modest tan head that doesn’t last. Aroma of mocha, Indian sweetmeats (cardamon burfi) , blackberries. Smooth, but carbonation is a just a little high to be silky. Roasted and chocolate flavours sit amongst treacle and Indian sweet-like malts. Fairly sweet and doesn’t really dry out much, but the whole thing is lightened by quite high and slightly spicy bitterness. Very nice..

Was pleased to find this in Qld, now they decide to come to Vic. Fresher bottle, home glass? - looks fine. Impressive.

Good one - very easy drinking - medium bodied - classic flavour - a bit short on aftertaste (cola-like?) so kinda two dimensional but... I like it.

(Bottle) Black with a tan head. Subtle aroma with hints of offer and malt. Excellent fine and plentiful carbonation. Smooth taste with balancing dark / burnt toffee notes. Very pleasant.

Sweet chocolate, roast almond and sultana aroma. Thick viscous pour. Too much carbonation for me. Watery finish. Overall not a stunning oatmeal stout, lacks depth of flavour.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2013
Dark brown, nice head. Aroma hints at a rich, fudgey balanced brew. Full body, creamy and delicious. Sweet accent, just enough hop. Really nice stout.

Not a bad stout, rather quaffable. However, is just a little too thin and lacks punch. Much prefer the bigger brother of this.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle pours opaque engine oil deep black with tan head.. Diminishing. Perhaps glassware... Aromas of sweet chocolate toasted and fruity malt character. Med full body, complex malt, sickly sweet almost, creamy oats mouthfeel, mocha, chocolate, cocoa, bitter coffee bean finishing up creamy but dry, lingering roasted malts.

On tap at Harts Pub. Not much on the nose. Flavour mostly consisted of chocolate and coffee. An ok stout, however lacks a punch. Many better stouts out there.

best part of this beer was the appearance. didn’t smell like much at all just kinda roasty and the flavours were just savoury and dry, touch of smoke.. expected more.
