3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Expected much more. Best part was the appearance which was dark with brown sugar head which lasted only a minute. Aroma was mostly cocoa chocolate with very little coffee at the end. Taste was grainy with mild chocolate and a hint of coffee on the finish. Not much going on. Mouthfeel was dry and thin for a stout. So many better stouts.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
35cl bottle from cerveteca bar in Lisbon. It pours a deep dark brown colour with a quite large Brown head that lasts well. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasted and smoked malts, oats, dark fruits and vanilla. Taste is oats and other cereals, roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, some toffee and a bittersweet feel at the end. Medium to low body, a creamy texture and decent carbonation. That’s officially my first American beer review. So far so good.

Noir avec un col marron. L’arôme du chocolat, réglisse et malt torréfié. Le goût à les mêmes caractéristiques. C’est aussi plein du corps et un peu onctueux.

Taste is velvety and smooth ( on the nitro ) with oatmeal and chocolate and some bitterness. Finishes on the same tasting notes and on the same silky texture. Nice ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque brown. Quaint brown head lacking retention. Very nice chocolate milk, roast, vanilla, caramel and malt aroma. Typical body for an oatmeal stout. Initially, dark chocolate and roast subtly intertwine, but moments later a pleasant hop and potent dark chocolate taste linger for several seconds. Quite good.

From bottle. Deep black with creamy, dark tan head. Aroma is chocolate malt shake, light smoke and roast, and oatmeal. Taste is similar, with a dark chocolate note and a pleasing grain flavor. The mouthfeel is smooth and substantial, with a long-lasting smokey chocolate finish.
