COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong taste is provided by chocolaty and roasted malts, which are combined with soft smoothness from the oats. Add up a little bitterness from Columbus hops and you’ll get a dangerously drinkable Double Oatmeal Stout!

Klimaet (702) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a medium brown head. Aromas of cocoa, vanilla, Milk chocolate, some weird sour notes, hoppy bitterness, some malt. Taste is cocoa, vanilla, some coffee roast, pretty sour notes, licorice, lots of bitterness. Pretty off to be honest. Infected maybe?

thanatosti (1145) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Biernavigatie.nl. Black with a very small tan head. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, all the familiar stout characteristics are very present. Taste is semi-sweet and mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Finish is very smooth and not very bitter but that could be because this was a bit old bottle (bottledate july 2013) so it got time to mellow. Very nice imperial stout.

Vestergaard (912) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a pitch black with a small, short lasting, brown head. Aroma is a little odd. Lots of oatmeal, hard roasted malts, slight chocolate, very old hops. I think that the odd flavors comes from the oatmeal. It smells like it was almost sour or infected when it was put into the beer. Taste is very bitter or acrid up front with some sour stuff to it. Very roasty, but also some chocolate malts that reminds me of hot chocolate. Not explicitly infected, but something is slightly off here.. Hmm.. Medium carb and full body

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Bottled March 2012. What makes De Molen brewed beers so foamy? This one filled two glasses with foam. Black, absolutely massive foamy brown head. Aroma is sweet stawberry, coffee, bourbon biscuit, leather. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is coffee, ash, burnt porridge, pine hop, twiggy. Very burnt flavour so that it’s really dry, sandy and almost tastes peated. Pretty unique. I’m really torn on this one.

Blechmikov (4) - Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 25, 2014 does not count
Nice aroma on the pour and the nose, mainly chocolate. Good sized tan head which stayed the course. Bitter but typical for a strong stout. Overall a premium stout. Well done Netherlands.

leghorn99 (115) - Livorno, ITALY - DEC 12, 2014
Osservazioni: Di colore marrone scuro impenetrabile; schiuma leggera che svanisce rapidamente. Aroma di cioccolato, malto tostato, caffè, caramello, frutti scuri e luppolo speziato. Al gusto inizia con un tocco di acidità fruttata, che viene rapidamente sovrastata da cioccolato dolce e ricco, malto tostato e liquirizia; al palato si riscalda con moderate note alcoliche, mentre il finale regala una piacevole amarezza. Corpo pieno, consistenza oleosa e leggera carbonatazione. Tenore alcolico importante (9,6%), ma di eccezionale bevibilità.

RasmusOtt (1551) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2015
Pours black with a brown lacing. Aroma of hard roasted malts, a weird tart note as well, some hops as well, some grains, somehow fresh unprocessed malts, cocoa and some weak coffee. The taste has that same weird tartness to it along with some pretty bitter hops and hard roasted malts. Bitter coffee, cocoa beans and some grainy malts. A bit off - don’t know if there was something wrong with this bottle?

tabletopjoe (30) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle at home. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee hits home, and you know: this is the good stuff. The beer was a little too cold, so I let it warm up a bit first in the bottle. Color is dark / black, with a medium tan head. Quite some retention for a stout like this. Medium to full body of roasted malts and coffee. Texture is medium. A lot of hops and bitterness in the finish. Works for me. Very drinkable.
