3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to Oakes for this one. Pours almost black with a small tan head which quickly disipates. Chocolate and malt in the taste and finishes with some hops. Its a good beer and would not turn down another but its a little two watered down for my liking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours a dark black with almost no opaqueness. Thin tan head fades relatively quickly leaving a ring.
Aroma is nice oatmeal, malty sweetness and smokey nuttiness. Some dark plum fruitiness when it warms a bit.
Flavour is suprisingly bitter hoppy with a quick smooth transition into a burnt chocolatey finish that comes off pretty clean and dry. Very drinkable but nothing to wow you.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black beer with hidden burgundy depths; yellow-brown medium head. Very typical Ersatzcoffee & burnt oats nose, additional charcoal and liquorice aromas, rather sweet. Again charred, ashes-like roasted oats & grains taste. Little real sweetness, finishes in a hoppy & chicory bitterness, ending rather harsh. Mellows again with warming. Bit empty MF, nearly watery texture. Dry-ish. Palate is a bit thin, and charcoal character a wee bit outspoken. Yet not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin head. Dark beer. Dusty real smoke aroma with alcohol only revealed with deep breaths. Some fruit scent appears mid glass. Thin flavour at first. Sour edge and finish with some charcoal. Need a full sample to get the soft chocolate and prune underneath. Like a creamy porter.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured an earthy heavy loam with a creamy, root-beer like, head. Palate included roasted malt with definite oatmeal smoothness. This is the only oatmeal stout I’ve had; there’s certainly room for more oatmeal I would imagine. The dryness is great though, and it’s more full-bodied and tasty than guinness. Really would be a great breakfast beer.

Clean dark coffee colour with thick frothy brown head. mild coffee malt nose. chewy coffee malt taste that fades to a watery after taste. showed good promise but faded fast.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2004 (Draft) Nice black color, needs a bigger head or a niro pour with lower carbonation rate roasty and molasses coming through. Needs more body for a stout. Decent flavor with a need for extra oatmeal for a more oily mouthfeel. Not bad.
