Pours black with a light tan head. Nose shows dry roasted malt, cocoa and oatmeal. Very roasty flavours, quite dry. More oatmeal but no really coffee or chocolate, just dry roast. Turns out quite moreish though. Lovely creamy carbonation and body.

Bottle. Almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of mocha, Indian sweetmeats - fudge, cardamom, anise, vanilla - licorice. Medium bodied, a little oaty silkiness. A little light on the roasted flavours and not really rich, but pleasantly earthy.

On tap at Scratch Bar as part of the Weekend of Darkness event 190714. Dense black colour with a small beige head. Aromas of vanilla and toffee, full mouthfeel and a long finish make this beer a treat to drink.

maneliquor (3104) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Probably the weakest of all the Panhead I have had so far but thatís not to say it is a bad beer. This came across very chocoloate driven but rather silky, smooth silkiness or sweetness, it was had more of a robust and powdery feel to it. A touch earthy with hints of liquorice too. Quaffer of a stout which led it to be a little thin throghout and on the finish, but I guess thatís what makes it so drinkable. Solid

Really enjoyed this oat stout so smooth, like drinking a beer milk shake. Pleasant coffee chocolate and vanilla. Great wee beer.

I held my glass up to the light and not a skerrick of colour got through this beer, even in the dimple of the glass. The head was a film of greyish brown. A quick snort from my not inconsiderable nose reveals chocolate, oats, motor-oil, cocoa, licorice - all typical aromas for the style. It seems very well made. The flavour is slightly sweet and somewhat silky with a pinch of acidic bitterness. Itís not bad stout. A little bit like every other oatmeal stout, but extremely well made.
