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!

Botella de 330ml –gracias a Juanjo por compartirla. Vaso de ½ Pinta. Saboreada en jun´12. Color negro intenso y corona de espuma beige claro y burbuja pequeña. Buena retención. Aromas de avena, granos secos de café, maltas torrefactas, trazos de chocolate y sutil fragancia floral. Chocolate amargo/dulce fundido con lúpulos subyacentes fluyen juntos hacia un final prolongado y amargo con leve toque cítrico. Cuerpo intenso y carbonatación moderada. Paladar cremoso y aterciopelado. Placentera y deliciosa. ¿ 9,6 ABV? Estás de coña… 330ml bottle –thanks to Juanjo for sharing this one-. ½ Pint glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Pitch black in color headed by light beige, small bubbled, froth. Good retention. Oats, dried coffee grains, roasted malts, hints of chocolate & subtle floral fragancy to the nose. Bitter/sweet fudge chocolate & underlying bitterness flow together into a long bitter finish with slightly citric touch. Full body, moderate carbonation. Velvet, creamy, palate. Pleasant & delightful. A 9.6 ABV beer ?? Come on…

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Bottled at Rooie Dop tasting session at De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Black appearance, no head. Absolutely fantastic complex nose, loads of malts, oats, coffee, some chocolate, some hops, even some wood notes. Very smooth yet complex malty flavor, very clear oatmeal presence, bitter but enough other flavors to balance it out. Developing and lasting finish. While this bottle was still quite fresh i’m already very much impressed. Seems like a very suitable candidate for barrel-aging as well. Very, very nice beer. Re-rate: Bottled at home, aged for about half a year. Huge head this time. Coffee and malts even more pronounced, also a bit more alcoholic. This beer definitely benefits from aging a bit. Rating reflects aged sample.

Bullit (3864) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 11, 2012
Bottle from Burg Bieren. Was very curious about how this one would turn out. Black colour, thin brown head. Nose is roasted malts, coffee, oats, cacao, slight sourness. Flavour is roasted malts, coffee, slight hop bitterness upfront, followed by chewy oats and a medium bodied, fairly dry and slightly bitter palate. Fairly bitter and a slightly alcoholic finish. Very enjoyable!

Apparently made in real gypsy style with the new brewer just using De Molen installation and no input from Menno // 33 cl. bottle sampled @ GBF 2012 // dark brown with a tanned head // smell is deliciously sweet, thick malts, chocolate plain and milk, light roast, cocoa, vanilla and some fruits // taste is sweeter side, yummy and surprisingly fruity, actually getting plenty of raspberries in here plus reasonable amount of sweet berries on top, lots of nuts, creamy oatmeal, milk chocolate, malty, toffee, sweeter coffee & that fruitiness // very creamy body // watch out for the new kid on the block

now HERE’s a surprise ! dont know what the hell ’oat’ is , so never tried an ’oat’ stout.. aint it ’haver’ in dutch? anyway, alway thought it wanst my kind of thing, well, and this.. was.. cant realy say this stout has anything i haven’t had yet in a stout, the onley diffrence here is, that this is, to me, a basic rusian imperioal, very well balanced, and the good things in it, come way much more to live here. no coffee ( not a big fan of coffe here folks) no chocolat ( witch this proves to be not a negative thing, as i alway thought) in stead you get a realy heavy, yet drinkable, very nice brew. i’m gonna buy this for sure !

Bottle@Brew dungeon tasting. As a newly brewed beer it is not that special, just a nice stout. I also had the opportunity to drink a bottle of Double Oatmeal Stout made as test brew #16, almost 2 years old: This aged beer is so much better than a fresh brew. So a tip, put it in storage for 1 year or more.

Bottle from De Molen Brewery Shop, Bodegraven, Holland, consumed inside ?Frank? (camper) at Camping Het Rieven, Landsmeer, Nr Amsterdam, Tuesday 2nd October 2012 Pours really black with a huge lava like flowing tan head, in fact the head is foamy & immense. This is a stunning stout, it’s rich with heap’s of coffee, chocolate and cinder toffee. Thick in the mouth, smooth, glorious. This for me is as good as any of the big stouts at Borefts in fact it is better than any I tried, superb. I understand that this was brewed at De Molen by a group of experienced home brew enthusiasts under the tutorage of De Molens Head Brewer (Menno?) well done to all concerned. Fantanstic beer, now why didn’t I buy more of these? A8 A5 T9 P4 Ov17 4.3

Bottle @ home. Aroma is roasty malt, fresh hops, chocolate and more. Flavour is very creamy with loads of coffee, roasted malts and a woody ashy note. Great. In the finish more subtle flavours show up, liquorice, mocca, some spicy note. Drank this beer a couple of times now, and every time it’s better. (3x + .1 by now) Great stuff.

Aroma of ashes, coffee, licorice, herbs and roasted malt. Flavour of herbs, coffee, roasted malt, hoppy bitterness and ashes. Slippery and slightly oily mouthfeel. Rather unique.
