2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A Mes rate: 75cl Bottle at Chris O’s Fukito tasting.
Mid dark brown with a slim tan head. Very heavy yeast and way too many oats. Milky chocolate notes and slight grassy hops. Very nutty. Finish is quick and unrewarding. No finesse.

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Better than I expected, it pours a near black more deep ruby brune with a light sandy yellow head. Nice nitro looking retention and sheety lace. Aroma is Whoppers milk balls, milk chocolate. Taste is ashy, bitter, cherry syrup, tobacco. Thinner palate. Eh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured deeper garnety-brown with a short-lived cap of beige head. The aroma picked up toasted darker fruits and sweeter chocolates with a milky air to it.. very nice charred tar and coffee on the back. The flavor held sweeter chocolate, oatmeal, and lactose sweetness at the core with light herbal and coffee bitterness around.. sweet overall, and quite engaging. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation.. flowed well across the palate and left a very nice sweet, roasty impression on the finish. Good stuff!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is an opaque dark brown (almost black) color with a medium beige head that dissipates slowly. Thin curtain of lacing throughout the glass. The aroma is very roasty, with coffee and dark chocolate. Medium-bodied and closer in consistency to a Porter than a Stout. Roasted coffee at the forefront, with molasses, chocolate and some hops in the flavor. The finish is mildly bitter and roasty. Overall this is a pretty good Stout, but it is lacking richness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 355 ml
Aroma … This is quiet nice! Big smooth warming roast of barley , cocoa with hints of darkness paired with elements of Arabica. Refreshing and relaxing.
Appearance stoic black with off shade hinted with brown. Light top. 4-
Flavor and Palate : Listed as 15 Plato brew yet with only 5.2 % of alcohol. Medium bodied , perfect work on dark malts. No off flavors of any kind. Simply straight clean roast that easily was carried till very end. If only one perhaps negative aspect would be slightly light body for style that was noted especially at the end.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a large foamy tanish brown head. Initially, aromas of bananas, roasted malts and brown sugar poke out. As the head slowly settles out, a chocolatey aroma starts to poke in. Tastes nutty with some nice chocolate and coffee notes. Excellent tangy mouthfeel. Finish is on the nutty side with a remnant of chocolate.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2010 Tasty light oatmeal stout. A little watery. Low-bodied. Black pour. Chocolate, oat and coffee mouthfeel. It’s good if you want an oatmeal stout and don’t want to sip on just one all night. Rated 4/6/10
