4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle. Pours black with a frothy, tan head that lingers. Aromas of roasty malt, chocolate, molasses and dates. Flavor is medium sweet with a fairly mild flavor up front that then blossoms into strong, chocolate and roasted malt flavors. Finishes with a long, dry, roasted malt bitterness. Medium-light body with a thinnish mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, although not complex, what it does it does exceptionally well. A delish stout!

550ml bottle - deep dark brown with a brown foamy head, like one would expect on a cappuccino. It hung around for an annoying amount of time meaning it was a while before I actually got to taste any beer. Excellent lacing too. Aroma of chocolate, roast malt and some grassy hop. Taste of chocolate, light roast malt, cocoa and a hint of grass. Medium bitterness, earthy finish. Smooth heavy body with low carbonation. To be honest didn’t really think that much to it sadly.

Pours dark, tan head. Malty aroma with some sour notes, cherry I guess? Taste is a bit weak but has some sourness near the end as well. Some fruitiness. Watery mouthfeel, medium carbonation. I can’t say I enjoyed this too much.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In bottiglia. Colore scuro, schiuma beige pannosa che va ad assottiliarsi rapidamente. Aroma di tostato, liquirizia, caffe’, leggero lattosio. Al palato corpo medio leggero, gasatura bassa, bevuto scorrevole. Sentori dolci di cioccolato, cereale tostato, caffč e finale con nota di liquirizia che si accentua con lo scaldarsi della birra nel bicchiere. Birra rotonda e piacevole.

12 oz. bottle from Jane’s Beer Store. Pours a very dark, ruby brown with a dense tan head. Subtle aroma of dark malts, coffee, molasses and sherry. Rich, creamy taste gives way to a surprisingly semi-dry finish, like dark chocolate. Light to medium body and "silky texture". Kudos for an extremely smooth and easy drinking stout. These guys obviously know what they are doing.

550ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours black with a thin off white head. Aroma of chocolate. Medium bitter finish. Not as good as I remember it from before, maybe a little too cold.

This is easily one of the best oatmeal stouts I have had in some time. Silky smooth and not too dry, it finishes perfectly.

It’s black with brown head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts and toffee. Medium bitterness, lightly sour, lots of coffee in taste. Light body and soft carbonation. Very drinkable beer.
