Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with steady low ehad and medium body. Aroma of torf and malt. Taste of torf, earth, leaves, woods, chocolate and mild coffee. Light dusty and roasty / smokey hints. Not a bad one.

Aromas of a scotch ale? Yeah I know that's weird, especially for a O.S. ... bb Nov 14 l13240. head retention around the rim, it has a high sweetness, low carbonation. Smooth but water mouth feel. It doesn't help being shipped from England to Australia, I'm drinking at room temp of 17 degrees. I'm not really satisfied.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tömör és világos bézs színű habja rátelepszik a sötét főzetre, melyből intenzív, pörkölt gabonás illat árad némi vaníliás beütéssel. Ez a visszafogott, süteményes édesség ízében is megjelenik, és kiegészül egyfajta égetett cukros, karamellás jelleggel, mely mintegy ellensúlyként szolgál az erőteljes, stoutos karakterhez.

Pours a very nice dark brown with tan head. Oats, spice, roasted malt, and some chocolate on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice roasted character.

550 ml bottle to a tulip. Opaque black with 2 finger creamy tan head and a bit of lacing. Some sweet roasted maltiness and toffee notes. Excellent mouth feel, smooth, well balanced. The original modern oatmeal stout sets a high standard. Would like to try a coffee version... Like "Mother's milk"!!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
550ml bottle from Sendiks in Brookfield served at refrigerator temperature. Pours dark brown with reddish highlights and a bit of a foamy tan head. Aroma has caramel, molasses, some chocolate, licorice and a touch of smoke. Later after it warmed, the chocolate became more of a player, and the molasses less. Taste is sweet caramelly malts, bakers chocolate, some roast and some anise. Quite dry and actually light-ish, once it was closer to British temperature. Finishes sweetly with some roasty bitterness. Perhaps a bit thin. Solid offerning.

Pours one inch tan head. Very sweet alcohol smell. Coffee, roasty, toffee, all very smooth and sweet. Very slight bitterness on the back of the throat aftertaste. Sweetest stout I have tasted, and fills the belly well. Love it.

1 inch light brown head, dissipates slowly.
Light oatmeal scent with a hint of spice from yeast. Very light alcohol aroma.
Light-medium malt taste at onset. Light fizzy carbonation on tongue after drinking. Light bitterness from hops on aftertaste without taste. Extremely chill, very smooth, flavor, overall.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Flavour is a bit metallic, with oats, roast and some lactic acid providing a hint of undesirable sourness. Still decent, but nothing memorable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 550 ml. Pours very very dark ruby with more than a finger of creamy beige head. Thick lacing, and the head retains well. Aroma of roasted, cereal-y malts, and a big dark chocolate presence, along with a big hit of golden syrup and some smaller fruitier notes, specifically dark fruits and a small note of orange. Roasted malt base in the taste is sublter, and the cereal is more confined to the after taste, with chocolate, honey, dark fruits, spices and a slight prick of hoppy bitterness too. Body is a bit thinner and more watery than advertised yet the taste manages to retain it’s complexity, minimal carbonation helping in this regard. Very easy yet flavorful drinking, and rather warming for a 5%.
