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 youíll get a dangerously drinkable Double Oatmeal Stout!

Flat dark brown pour. No head, just a couple bubbles. No lacing. Big aroma of coffee. Thatís really about it, just roasted barley. Taste is a very bitter front with a tangy finish. A little more sour than anything besides Gueuze should be. Maybe it will age better?

marcus (6418) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours near black with a small but attractive tan head and a roasted chocolate aroma. There is a rich smooth chocolate flavor with a nice bitter finish Very tasty.

solidfunk (3825) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Definitely a lot of oatmeal aroma in this which I donít always sense in oatmeal stout. Breakfast aroma of coffee poured into oats without cream. Pours dark brown with bubbly initial head and not much lacing. Some roast with light bitter finish. Some chocolate as well. Tap at Churchkey.

Swaroga (1303) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo jest mocno ciemnobrązowe, praktycznie czarne. Piana jest niewielka i ma brązowy kolor. NOS : piwo ma bogaty aromat słodowy przypominający przypalony karmel, słodką kawę, skůrkę pełnoziarnistego chleba, czarną czekoladę. Do tego mocny aromat alkoholu i skůrki pomarańczy. Można dodać do tego toffi, banan i sos sojowy. USTA : mało nasycone i gęste o konsystencji chudej śmietany. Piwo jest słodkie o nutach słodowych z niuansami czekolady i karmelizowanych nasion. Słodki smak utrzymuje się do końca i dominuje. W kontrze jedynie mamy nuty delikatnie kwaśne i cierpkie przypominające kawę i tytoń, plus paloną gorzkość o umiarkowanej sile.Posmak jest podobny do słodkiej rozpuszczalnej kawy. ODCZUCIA : smaczny i przyjemny ale nie szlachetny. Brakuje polotu. Z kolei nie brakuje alkoholu. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 5/10 styl : +1

DuffMan (6632) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle. Very lively pour, dark dark brown crowned with a ridiculous tan coloured pompadour. Chocolate and roast make up the aroma. These are feature flavours as well, but there is also a lovely sharp tartness (not quite sour) that livens things up, as well as some soft oats, finishing with dusty tree bark. That tartness really appeals to me, cutting through what could become a heavy venture. Nice.

adasko (241) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Has mostly malts. In aroma and in taste as well. Of course itís stout, so there is a little bit of caramel, a little bit of coffee. But I tasted mostly malts. Itís quite sweet and quite tasty.

Sammy (8520) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle at líAutre Oiel. Smooth stout, a sipper. More than a year old and still carbonated. Bubble head, some bitter bite.

12 ounce bottle. Big dark pour. Thin tan head. Chocolate and roast throughout. That slight cherry stout taste. Nice overall. Rich.

Bahumat (105) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 20, 2014
Aroma: 5/10. Not much aroma there, some roasted malt and some hops. Appearance: 5/5. Black pour, thin light mocha head that dissipates reasonably fast. Taste: 8/10. Surprisingly sour-citrus for an oatmeal stout, but still well balanced. Almost lemony at first. Sweet, then a long, strong coffee finish. Palate: 3/5. Smooth as an oatmeal stout should be on the tongue, very lightly carbonated, gentle astringency for a stout. Long, lingering hoppy-coffee finish, a little stronger than I like. Overall: 17/20. An interesting beer, and would probably appeal more to those interested in more sour stouts. Itís not the best balanced product Iíve had out of De Molen, sadly. A little too much of everything; a little too sour, a little too bitter, a little too much coffee, a little too much hops. Still a great beer, but this could have been a few points higher with better balancing.
