Pours black as night...with an awesome beige tan head that is long lasting... I happen to be a little under the weather and can’t smell very well...and yet it smells deep and thick with a sweet caramel twinge. This is love a first taste...good, smooth drink. Definitely a yes...can’t wait to taste it when I am not under the weather.

12 oz. bottle from Jane’s Beer Store. Pours a very dark, ruby brown with a dense tan head. Subtle aroma of dark malts, coffee, molasses and sherry. Rich, creamy taste gives way to a surprisingly semi-dry finish, like dark chocolate. Light to medium body and "silky texture". Kudos for an extremely smooth and easy drinking stout. These guys obviously know what they are doing.

550ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours black with a thin off white head. Aroma of chocolate. Medium bitter finish. Not as good as I remember it from before, maybe a little too cold.

This is easily one of the best oatmeal stouts I have had in some time. Silky smooth and not too dry, it finishes perfectly.

Pours dark brown almost black ruby highlights fluffy tan head. Aroma is bitter chocolate, some coffee and some blackberry like esters. Flavor has lots of berry like fruit, some dark chocolate flavors. Balanced towards the sweet side however some ashy roast balances things out.

Bottle. Very dark, chestnut brown. Thin, sticky, tan head. Chocolate. Caramel. Some bonfire toffee. Heavy on the sweet. Light on the roast. Taste is dry, and a little bitter. A bit of sweet wriggles in. Palate is a little watery. Finishes dry, with a tang of tartness.
