Transfer from BA review from 6-10-12- Served on nitro-tap in a tulip shaped glass Appearance – Served a nearly pitch black color with a wonderful thick light brown nitrogen formed head. The head was very persistent and lasted the entire drinking experience. Smell – The aroma was of roasted malt and cocoa with a sugary sweetness. The sweet aromas were hard to plac,e but seemed to be mainly of molasses and brown sugar . Mixed with these was a light burnt smell that overall created a nice balance to the sweet aromas of the sugar. Taste – The taste started out of roasted malt and a lighter oat flavor. The cocoa that was detected in the nose quickly came to the tongue. It started out sweet when it arrived due to a nice molasses sweetness the accompanied its arrival, but the molasses started to fade more toward the middle of the taste as some roasted coffee flavors began to develop. These bittered the brew a bit and left a nice, more dry, roasted and cocoa flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The creamy nitrogen driven body coated the mouth, bathing it in all the wonderful flavors of the brew. Being a nitro the effervescence was lighter, this accentuating all those wonderfully slightly sweet dark and roasty flavors. Overall – This was one fine tasty beer. The nitro pour suited all the darker roasted flavors very well giving an overall creamy and satisfying brew.

lesifflebiere (1274) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
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.

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...
