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.

3.6 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of gunhaver. Pours dark brown with thin off white head. The aroma is very nice and inviting with roast, molasses, some toffee, chocolate and smooth mild burnt malts. The taste begins thin with roast and burnt malts then moving into hints of molasses and chocolate. The burnt malts grow into the finish. The nose overstated the goodness of the flavor. Still mighty fine though.
