3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Flaco Alto for this. Jet black pour with 2-finger brown head. One of the browner heads you will ever see. Aroma of molasses, chocolate syrup, coffee, hoppy peppery hints. The taste is roasty malty, with chocolate and coffee, some anise and nut hints, and some peppery finishing hints. Medium palate with a creamy finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Radarsock. Good, half-inch light brown head. Black body. Decent lace. Good, hearty texture, but light-tan medium body. Lighter, smooth carbonation. Great aromatic nose. Nice creamy chocolate malts and oat flavor, some good roastiness. Satisfying, robust flavor, good mild bitter sweet roasty taste. Satisfying solid oatmeal stout. Can’t complain. Good example of the style. My mom had a sip, she really seemed to like it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dark black with a very thick tan head. A touch of grain, some sweet oatmeal notes, and a bit of old paper. Medium bodied, little bit of cola, and a lot of stale paper and cardboard. Uncharacteristically sweet finish with some bitterness and more paper.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours black with tan head, aroma is burnt malt. Taste is a bit watery, but with burnt malt and chocolate/coffee after taste that is made creamier by the oatmeal. Not bad!

Black with some red at the top. Pale, syrupy smoke and hop aroma that is a little sweet, somewhat resembling oats. Full, robust, smokey... yes, very smokey. I like.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Bonus bottle from my homie Nbutler11. Pours near black with a tan head. The aroma has roasted ans sweet malts, oats, cream, and a hint of chocolate. The flavor starts with a heavy dose of roast, which gives way to sweeter notes of oatmeal, hazelnut and caramel, followed by lingering notes of semi-sweet chocolate and hazelnuts. Outrageously easy to drink. Seriously I downed this in like 5 minutes without even realizing it... whoops. Thanks Nick.
