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.

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%.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
leuk antiek ogend etiket, schenkt zwart met fijne kaki kraag.
aroma is wat beperkt, diverse mouten met chocolade en lichte koffie.
smaken zijn redelijk zoet, melkchocolade, zacht en glad, emedium body, lage co2, zoetige afdronk, maar over het algemeen is het wel aan de te dunne kant.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Very dark, almost black with a tan head. Pleasant aroma - toffee, nuts, coffee, although all fairly subtle. Excellent palate, smooth with carbonation that is both velvety and has prickly brightness. Some residual stickiness. Great flavour, rich and quite complex with dark toffee sweetness rounded off with some hints of bitterness, more black coffee than hops, in the finish. Excellent beer.

This is an excellent oatmeal stout. Really smooth and smells like oatmeal. Pours almost black with a tan head. Way better than the rating. Ha at Mickey mantles in Oklahoma City
