Geruch ist reichhaltig, süß, schokoladig, malzig. Der Geschmack ist super: sehr rund und ausgewogen mit viel Bitterschokolade und etwas Kaffee. Hafer schmeckt man nur wenig raus.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.55 bottle. Very dark brown color and a medium, tanned head leaving a nice lacing. Aroma of malts, wet bread, some semi-sweet rolls with crust, dough, and delicate but sweet yeasts. Taste is delicate, sweet, malty, oats, sweet rolls again. Full body, creamy texture, and almost flat carbonation. Finish introduces some roast and a hint of fruits. Overall the beer is not bad but I certainly do not see why it would deserve such high an average score.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Dark roasted malt aromas. Dark roasts malts dominate with hunts of licorice. Smooth and creamy from the oatmeal. Good body with a decent mouthfeel. Feels bigger than a 5%er.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Color is dark black, no light getting through. Has a creamy light brown head, very little lacing. Aroma is chocolate malts, sweet, sugary, some molasses and a hint of licorice. Taste is creamy, sweet caramel, chocolate and a tiny bit of bitterness on the back. Subtle but big. Mouth feel is excellent. One of the best readily available oatmeal stouts around.
