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 (3591) - 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

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.

tabletopjoe (15) - 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.

leghorn99 (35) - 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.

Maakun (833) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle. Black with small beige head. Roasted malts, coffee, dry cocoa, black currant. Marzipan and sour cherries, deep rye with strong aniseed and licorice. Light tart taste with a nice underlying sweetness and roasted bitter finish. Medium to full bodied and slick feel. Very nice stout. Good imperial stout.

NeuroPliny (165) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours brown-black. Toffee-head leaving generous lacing. Aroma is expresso, baker's chocolate, roasted malts, with notes of hops and spice. Flavour is more bitter than the nose would suggest with hops balancing the roasted malts and chocolate. There are also hazelnut notes. Moderate body. A very solid oatmeal stout.

Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting, from Kihiosk, Copenhagen. ABV is 9.6%. Black colour, huge and lasting tan head. Moderate malty and roasty aroma, notes of caramel, chocolate, oats and mild coffee. The flavour has notes of molasses, oak, caramel and roasted malts, also chocolate and coffee. Quite good.

Bottle at Pigalle. Roasty, chocolate, bit sweet. Taste is boozy, oats, good stuff. Had drunk a lot by this stage, so a bit hazy.

arkurzynski (1591) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Deep black with minimal head. Nose of dark chocolate, roast malt, faint smoky coffee and dark fruit. Flavor is a pretty even mix of roast malt and dark fruit (plum, raisin, dark cherry) with some caramel and bitter chocolate. Lingrering grainy roast. Bitter chocolate.
