COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional stout using dark roasted malted barley to create a full-bodied ale. Rounded with the smooth flavor of oats, the addition of English Kent Goldings hops produces a creamy stout that has proven to be a favorite.

Tmoney99 (10666) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured dark brown color with medium to large brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy toasted malt and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted sweet malt flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Maria (10158) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 6, 2008
The Fonefan/Brugmansia Cnudde tasting. Courtesy of Papsoe. Black/brown with a small head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and citrussy hops. The flavour has notes of coffee, licorice and the finish is bitter and dry. I miss a bit of sweetness, the smooth and the round body, that I expect in an oat, the hops are a bit too dominating IMO. OK, sure, but just not one I’ll drink again.

A deep dark stout with a thin lacing brown head. In aroma, classic chocolate malt with light creamy notes, powdery and smooth. In mouth, a nice smooth smooth chocolate malt with light peated notes, grassy hops, smooth and quaffable. On tap at brewery.

hopscotch (9162) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Bottle... Pours pitch black with a tiny, creamy, beige head. No retention. Lots of milk chocolate in the nose with some dark cherries and caramel. The flavor is medium bitter with lots of burnt notes and no residual sweetness, even when warm. Just a hint of acidity. Light to medium-bodied with soft carbonation. Lengthy, burnt, moderately bitter finish. FlacoAlto provided the bottle!

Dark brown pour, light creamy colored head. Aroma is a bit metallic...infected? Behind that I get some molasses, coffee and a little chocolate. Metallic flavor a bit of sourmash. Coffee, roasty. Dry. Nah.
