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

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.

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 (110) - 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 (3122) - 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.
