3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with a nice fluffy beige head. Aromas are coffee, cocoa and roasted grains. Very intense flavours of espresso, dark chocolate and almost burnt malt. Very rich mouthfeel with the oatmeal giving it a nice smooth finish. Very good, but a little overpowering.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
