4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Such harsh comments for a delicious stout. I can truly say I never had the best stout, but I don’t mind hunting for it either. Nice smooth pour with a rich creamy head. Sweat smell. Excellent full body taste, that’s very demanding of the palate. The head disappears quickly, and you can actually listen and hear the head fizzle and snap as it evaporates. Is this beer is trying to tell us something? I’m a different kind of beer rater, as well as tasting and smelling, I listen to what my beer has to say. Its telling me to finish up and mosey on off to bed. Enjoyed this stout to the extreme. Would highly recommend, a real pleasure to drink.

A great oatmeal stout. Very smooth, very dark color and smells delicious, because it is.

One of my favourite Oatmeal Stoats. Rich sweet taste and minimal head. Overall a good purchase and I highly recommend it. But of course, you know that.

Smooth, silky, creamy texture. Aroma and flavour are very well balanced in terms of bitterness and sweetness. Light hints of coffee, chocolate.

If you like a malty, sweet stout give this a try. For us however, just too sweet. Too much honey/molasses taste for us.

Big dark stout pour w/ a huge tan frothy head. The aroma is a subtle blend of cocoa & roast. The taste is quite subdued but has just enough flavor to pull this off. The mouthfeel is what makes this beer. Itís very well balanced, light on the tongue, & highly drinkable. Pretty darn good stuff!

550ml bottle at home. Pours dark, dark brown, near black but not quite with a thick, long-lasting tan head & nice lacing. Itís a looker! Aromas are more subtle, but chocolate and treacle are there. Taste brings it all out in the open, treacle, liquorice, roasted coffee, dark chocolate. Medium body, creamy texture and a long finish. Really enjoyed this.

Obviously, this is a classic. Dark (dark brown/almost black), with a decent head. Taste of chocolate, oatmeal and coffee. Sweeter than an Irish style stout.

Zapach dość delikatny, słodowy, z nutą cukru, a nawet cukru trzcinowego i karmelu. Odrobinę czuć też chmiel. Piwo wygląda bardzo ładnie - ciemne, z delikatną, drobną, beżową pianą, ktůra uciekła umiarkowanie szybko. W smaku - niemal perfekcyjne. Delikatnie słodkie, z goryczkowym finiszem - idealny balans. Trochę gęste i przyjemnie wysycone - tak, jak lubię. W Polsce nabyłem za 12 zł - wg mnie to dużo, ale naprawdę warto. Świetne piwo!

Poured from a 12OZ bottle and no head at all. The color is a very dark brown, I smell roasted malts, cooked brown sugar, some coffee and some caramel. I taste all of the same, very smooth and good.
