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!

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

Aroma has prunes, vanilla, roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Pours black with a small ribg head that leaves minimal lacing. Taste has medium bitterness and light sweetness and same elements with the aroma. Full body, soft carbonation. Long bitter and ashy finish.

fajry (947) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 30, 2015
Fľaša. Dmavo hnedá farba, žiadna pena. Vôňa pražených sladov, kávy a jemne karamelu. Telo stredne plné, nízka nasýtenosť. Zo začiatku sladké, bomparové chute, neskôr pražené slady, horká čokoláda. Dochuť mierne trpká, horká. Nie príliš dobré, ale dávam do za vinu konkrétnej fľaške.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2015 Bottle. Small tan fizzy head, not very lasting. Very dark and opaque brown, close to black. Aroma is strong cocoa, roasted prune, raisin, very complex and rich. Taste is also cocoa, burnt caramel, liquorice and roasted malt. Full body. Burnt bitter and caffee aftertaste. A very good imperial stout.

Hopmaestro (351) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2015
Poured without almost any foam at all, and I got a bit worried, but when I smelled it I got my hopes up again. The aroma brings quite a big handful of those notes you expect from an imp. Dark and heavy smells from chocolate, coffee with that roasted punch. The taste is also up to par with the aroma, it’s a bit thick in the mouth feel and smooth from what I guess is the oatmeal. Soft coffee roasts with a hint of charcoal. A pretty long medium bitter sensation sets in and lingers for quite a while. This is a really good oatmeal stout and I was really impressed.

sharkydodson (478) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - FEB 13, 2015
the aroma of caramel, chocolate and toast with hints of licorice and candy... the taste is caramel and chocolate with shades of dark fruits, forest berries and some spices... sweet and dry and spicy aftertaste...
