3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Un liquide riche, aux allures de pétrole brut, aux relents choco-caféinés, à la mousse style crema. On constate en bouche que le mélange, loin de n’être qu’une simple orgie maltée, est tout à fait bien balancée entre ses diverses caractéristiques, tout en enrobant généreusement le palais. Un stout comme il doit être : riche, touffu, bourré de saveur jusqu’à la dernière goutte. Classique, et très réussi.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I poured this into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a decent looking black color with a nice looking off white foamy three finger head. The lacing is fairly thick and sticks finely to the glass.
The smell was semi-roasty and coffee-like but as it warmed there was some oatmeal like features.
The taste was mainly roasty but had a decent sweetness running about it. The aftertaste did end up having a decent light chocolate about it. The finish was super dry.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium in body and had a decent sessionability about it.
Overall, for the most part, this is a decent oatmeal stout worthy of having again.

At a tasting, thanks zvikar, small creamy bubbly head, very dark brown almost black colour, aroma of highly roasted coffee, charred wood and some soy, flavour of coffee, dirt and dark chocolate, mellow pleasant bitterness and light sweetness. Nice and enjoyable.

medium black pour..slight mocha color head..nose is chocolate..oats..cold press coffee..mouthfeel is smooth, slightly creamy with a solid stout presence..however left a bit of a lingering aftertaste/aroma of bandaid that I didn’t really care for..overall a decent beer that I can recall having years and years back in a bomber and being much more impressed with...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour pitch black with a frothy head. Rich note of roasted malt mixed with a hint of hop in aroma. Smooth, lingering mid bitterness finish. A well balanced stout if not a bit too light.
