Got a few bubbles but I think that works to advantage. Mocha flavour on the smell. Almost licorice on foundation but the hops comes through later. Lovely malt. Coffee finish. Pleasantly light on taste of alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (1425) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2016
Draught at Hoo Ha bar, Southbank, Brisbane. Poured an opaque black with a ruby edge tint, 5mm of light tan foamy head that diminished slowly and laced OK. Carbonation low. Aroma subtly of light and slightly sweet malt. Taste very nice of sweet malt with strong roasted grain, hint of coffee, chocolate and possible smoke. Medium body, a bit thin for a stout. Smooth and creamy with a fading subtle bitterness on the finish. Very nice.

LimeGreenHalo (13) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Don’t know why but wasn’t expecting to much from this and was pleasantly surprised. The booziness shines through the lovely smooth chocaletiness. Possibly slightly too sweet.

varanid99 (911) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2015
Almost black pour with a thin, quickly fading tan head. Sweetish, roasty, cocoa and a little liquorice on the nose. Taste is sweetish, dark chocolate, roast, coffee. Nice

Head doesnt hang around. Upfront sweetness quickly controlled by well balanced bitterness and burnt coffee finish that lingers. Great oatmeal stout, one of the best i have had ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cam_Dynamite (116) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2015
Pours dark with a pretty stingy white head. Aroma is a nice mix of malts, chocolate and a slight pine note. Taste is very much chocolate malts finish is slightly bitter but a bit weak and watery. Solid but nothing special.

stevoj (3593) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 8, 2015
Small, but dense beige head on the pour. Subdued aroma leads into mild sweet stout territory, very creamy, more milk chocolate than dark. Very gentle dark roast grains here, nothing biting or lingering.

Bootlegger007 (92) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2015
Light floral aroma, pours black with a light brown head, good balance with a mix of coffee and chocolate with a lasting bitter aftertaste, warming, sticky medium bodied stout.
