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!

Palme (3603) - Bergen, - OCT 7, 2012
0.33l bottle from trade with MrHangover. Thanks man! A quite over-filled bottle that pours a deep brown body with a over-gigantic layering and lacing chocolate-colored fluffy head. Takes quite a while for it to calm down as well, but when it has, I get a good dash of chocolate, roasted malts and some ice cream in the aroma. Also tones of some green apples, nail polish remover, wood and a little bit of wet cardboard. The flavor is at first a bit yeasty with more green apples, but then it switches over in to this roasted and bitter killing machine! Heavy heavy roasted with a really big bitterness, I also get black chocolate with a suiting warming almost nail polish boozy finish before the chocolate malty aftertaste takes over. At first I feared this might be a bad bottle or something, but it quickly redeemed itself for being a fine imp stout. 07.07.2012

willisread (953) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a deep black with some light brown highlights with no head. Aromas of soy sauce, dark chocolate, cream and molasses. Taste is soy sauce with a strong roasted cacao and malt character. Fairly smooth...almost pinot noir like in texture. Not really that special and bit boozy at the end. The oatmeal gives it a nice softness.

wiedrzensky (344) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle. Pours is dark with almost no head. Intense aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, caramel, coffee, nuts and fruity, I’d say bit of banana notes too. Taste is light to medium sweet, light bitter, lots of chocolate and some coffee notes. Heavy body, oily texture, flat carbonation, light bitter, medium sweet finish.

neongolden (804) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2015
(330ml bottle @ PiBar, Lausanne, Aug 11 2015) Pours black with a big pillowy off white head and lots of lace. Aroma is not particularly strong, chocolate powder, softly grainy cereal/bread notes, coffee, light roast, anise, maybe some fruit. Palate is equally soft and balanced with a core of dark malts that are fairly sweet with milk chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, oatmeal, liquorice, thin acidic roast like light roast coffee towards the finish. Medium-full and quite creamy in the mouth with soft carbonation. Feels great and the balance is good, but lacks some punch to stand out flavour-wise.

rouhlas (1347) - GREECE - AUG 17, 2015
330ml bottle. Almost black color with dark beige head. Roasted malty aroma, licorice, coffee, chocolate, caramel. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Almost full body oily body with soft carbonation.

matbli (136) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle 330ml, pours dark brown with almost no head. A lot of yeast and hop particles that make it look very bad. aroma of coffee, milk chocolate, raisins, dark fruits and honey. In taste medium sweetness well balanced with some light sourness and a bit ashy bitterness in the finish. Very low carbonation make it feel quite sticky, what lowers the drinkability a bit, but all in all it’s a nice and solid beer.
