Draft - Black as night with a thick head that sticks around for a while. The head is a malty brown in color. Roasted malt flavor, slightly nutty.

The aroma is wonderful, honey, blossom, rich sweet malt. The interplay of cascade and the chocolate malts creates a lovely floral nose. Taste is rich, chocolatey with some bitterness from the dark malts but not overpowering. Head is initially tan but fades to cream and dissipates somewhat. Long finish and smooth mouthfeel. Full bodied and very satisfying. A cracking beer.

I bit to much bitter at the start of the taste for me to really enjoy the stout aspect of this beer. It does have a nice taste and smoother taste at the back end, yet it still lacks that full body flavor. Pours black. slight head.

Bottle from the Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Pours dark brown, almost black with a tan head. Nice cocoa aroma. The taste is biteer with light spice and flavours of coffee and chocolate. Moderate carbonation giving creamy mouth feel. Very good

This is a decent stout but I must say, I found it a little disappointing. It has some nice chocolate flavors but lacks the body and complexity that I'd hoped for and have found in other oatmeal stouts. I didn't pour it out, but I'd probably not get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jado (630) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2015
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a solid inky black with a small but lasting brown head. Aromas of raisins, dates, cherries, coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is rich coffee and dark fruit at the start before a firm roast bitterness in the mid-palate followed by light chocolate and vanilla notes at the end. Gentle milk chocolate aftertaste. Lovely full body with a smooth mouthfeel. Great stuff.

650 ml bottle poured at a friends house. Pours black as night and tastes of a nice strong malt. Little bit of carbonation. Good drink. I’ll have another!

Wonderful oatmeal stout that is very dark and has a nice tan head. This is good for the winter time and the oatmeal gives it a nice complete taste.
