4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
from Erzbierschof - black beer under a hugely foamy creamy beige foam; roasted aroma of cacao and walnuts; some corny tones in the background; full-bodied and pretty thick; some sweetness below; a subtle yet fair carbonation; solidly bitter and quite dry; aftertaste of licorice, chocolate and tar - lot of character for this straightforward beer

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 Wow what a great stout! I’ve been on an oatmeal stout feast lately so just grabbed it. Lovely sweet, roasty, chocolate flavoured stout with some liquorice and a nice long bitter finish. I’ve got a lot of time for this stout. Love it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tons of foam with aromas of smoke, flint, blood & metal. In the glass it’s more fleshy, roasty and spiciness. Big big big cloud like golden tan head. Fuzzy on the tongue. Seems rather busy and unresolved and none of that silky mealy quality I would expect from a beer of oats.
Still decent enough though..

Jet black colour, tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, ash, milk chocolate, cocoa. Quite sweet flavour, milk chocolate, bitter hops and roasted malts, latte macchiato. Firm body, great head retention. Finish light sweet, roasted malts, bitter oats, sponge cake, baba.
Great beer. Happy international stout day! :)

Pours dark and black but looks thin from the bottle. Big brown head. Nose is nose is tree bark, coffee, boozey and small hints of chocolate. Taste is nice and sweet with a great bitter backbone for balance. Mouthfeel is crisp and oily, heavy body with a long finish.

now HERE’s a surprise ! dont know what the hell ’oat’ is , so never tried an ’oat’ stout.. aint it ’haver’ in dutch? anyway, alway thought it wanst my kind of thing, well, and this.. was.. cant realy say this stout has anything i haven’t had yet in a stout, the onley diffrence here is, that this is, to me, a basic rusian imperioal, very well balanced, and the good things in it, come way much more to live here. no coffee ( not a big fan of coffe here folks) no chocolat ( witch this proves to be not a negative thing, as i alway thought) in stead you get a realy heavy, yet drinkable, very nice brew. i’m gonna buy this for sure !
