Low head (I expected more here) and a deep opaque brown color. Nose of bitter chocolate and coffee, which also come through as tastes in the body. Thinner than expected too but it carries a lot of flavor with it. Looked interesting on the menu, and so did the crocodile pizza. Problem is that the two didn’t really go together.

ChrisO ’Night Of The Gaylords’ tasting. Cloudy dark brown beer. A little blackcurrant in the malty nose. Unsweet chocolate and malt. Something chemical as well. Doesn’t hang together. Not nice!

Really disappointing. Dark in colour. No head. Really thin. Heaps of citrus and blueberries. Bit of dark chocloate but nothing that jumps out at you.

Really moreish quality beer, let down by a thin body. Very smooth with the oat and with a bit more meat this could be great. A real chocolate stout - could be a world beater with a little tweaking.

Bottle 50cl. @ Chris O’s Night of the Gaylords.
Clear dark brown color with a average, creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, chocolate, blackcurrant. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, light sour, soy sauce notes. Body is light to medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20091229]

Mjollnir (398) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2010
250mL bottle. Pours an opaque dark red-black with a brown head that subsides pretty quickly. Aroma is dried fruit with some roastiness and chocolate. The flavour is sour with faint chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. On the light side of medium bodied with soft carbonation and an astringent, slightly bitter finish. The Overall score is low on account of the price.

Bottled@The Chriso Gaylord Tasting. Deep amber colour, small head. Aroma is some wood, chocolate, mild roasted malts as well as some strange sourish/bitter notes. Flavour is quite much the same. Not to fond of this one...

A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s Night of the Gaylords.
Brown and erm... Yup. Slight U.S. chocolate (not at all Belgian) and plenty of blackcurrant. Cheap advent calendar stuff with an odd sour note. Not great.

harrisoni (17337) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle at the Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. Black, lasting tan head. Choc and blackcurrant on aroma. Musty, oxidised, not huge choc anywhere. Just a bit maybe. Not very stouty, not very choccy. Some sourness.

hawthorne00 (3537) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2010
250ml bottle. Black. Fizzes like Coke and leaves no head at all. Nose has dark chocolate and some apples. Fizzy mouthfeel (weird for an oatmeal stout). Powdery cocoa and coffee. Slightly tart apple juice/ coriander (leaf) finish. Poor.
