3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep, deep red/black colour. Smooth and malty with chocolate and a hint of coffee. Much fuller bodied than any oatmeal stouts/porters I’ve had before. Easy drinking stout, mild bitterness, slight sweetness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Dark black. Milky and roasty with perfect smooth coffee and roast malt flavour and soft mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Really well balanced, and with great malt character. Perhaps the finest beer I had on AIBA 2005!
