4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I remember drinking this beer years ago and enjoying it immensely. Now, I realize that it truly is a superb brew. Black as a moonless night with a thin tan head. Malt, oats, and chocolate make up the wonderful aroma. A palate as smooth as milk leads to the incredible flavor consisting of oats, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. Finishes clean. Wow.

APPEARANCE - perfectly black, brown head. Perfect oatmeal stout color.
NOSE – sweet maltiness.
FLAVOR – classic! Oatmeal stout at its finest (yes, I’ve read the label, but I believe it for sure).

Should be The Standard by Which All Others are Judged..... Oatmeal stouts, that is. But.... not really any kind of a consensus that I can see on this site? There is nothing at all wrong with this beer.... the reason I didnt rate it higher is b/c it could be amped up a lot & made much richer, except thats not what an English Gentlemans brewery would be doing, would it now?

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in Hami hill. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head. Body is medium with low carbonation. Are is subtle with sultanas, chocolate, coffee and roasted nuts. Taste is much the same although the subtly of flavours in the aroma has become more robust. Taste is sweet chocolate and mild vanilla with subtle roasted coffee beans. Finish is quite bitter and lingering. Such a great, simple, easy drinking stout

Butelka, warka do stycznia 2016. Ladna, powoli opadajaca, drobna, kremowa pianka, malo brudzaca szklo, przejrzyste, brazowe, dosc ciemne. W aromacie bogato - kawa, czekolada, troszke ciemnych owocow, karmelu i zboz, nieco palonosci (niewiele), jakies rodzynki, moze nawet lekka wanilia. w smaku jeszcze fajniej - poza wszystkim powyzszym jest tez nieco goryczki - takiej hmmm... a la bardzo gorzka czekolada. do tego niemalo slodyczy. Wszystko to bardzo ladnie razem skomponowane, tworzace gladka, mila w piciu calosc. niskie wysycenie. Klasa piwo. a przy tym nienarzucajace sie, "sesyjne"

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep brown, flashes of mahogany, very subtle tan head. Smells strongly of light, sweet vanilla and brown sugar. Light tobacco. Tastes of a slight earthy bitterness, quite sweet though remarkably balanced. Longer finish that dries out significantly. Very creamy, medium heavy body, very little alcohol. Excellent beer.
