Large bottle ! who the hell can really appreciate the nuances in a little 355ml bottle? . I’ve not drunk this beer in ten years and liked it then ,but neglected to write a bunch of crap down for dissection! I approach US lower boost Stouts with mild unease as too many of them in my experience are a boxing match of roast and rich hops .... this beer isn’t like that . nice balance offered . roast bitter malt dryness , coffee notes are rich enough ...only subtle oat textures. the hoppy vibes are floral but relaxed , this ain’t trying to be a Black IPA . huuge ass beiged head rests greatly over brooding blackness .... I drank the second half of the bottle fast as hell!

joejames (461) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle to shaker glass, pours near black. Two finger pillow dark tan head. Nice lacing with small cap retention. Aroma of coffee. Taste is medium sweet, lightly bitter. Full bodied, moderate carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes long. Tasting notes of oats, coffee, dark chocolate, dark roasted barley and earth. Simple and on the spot, text book oatmeal stout. Very good.

jamestulloch (3220) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle from Bottle Baron. Deep brown/black body with a medium tan head. Aroma of shoe polish, dark chocolate, burnt coffee, digestive biscuits and earth. Flavour of orange, ash, backcurrant and cigar. Medium body with a smooth, creamy texture. Light fizz. A classy beer that packs a lot of complexity into 6.0% ABV. Straddles the line between Stout and Black IPA.

petewhitley (492) - Nagoya, JAPAN - JAN 11, 2016
roasty, toast, brown, tan foam, light sweetness, lightly sour, bitter. Delicious roasted nuts, burnt toast aroma. Lightly sweet on the lips, briefly sour, extended bitter finish. Brings to mind burnt coffee beans. Competent for what it is, but far to acrid for my taste.

Niall73 (2418) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
Nitro pour at engine 15, Jacksonville Beach. Pours dark brown/black with an off white head. Not much of an aroma, a little milk choc. Thin, watery body. Light carbonation. It's dry with some bitter choc and coffee. Light licorice too. Dull stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
