4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark, thick pour from a bomber bottle with about an inch and a half of tan head. Mainly oats, as the name suggests, on the nose. As it warms it loses bitterness and develops bold vanilla middle and raisin finish. Can taste a little alcohol on the finish. Solid, solid oat stout and my first oatmeal imperial stout.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in Craft Brixton. Opaque black almost no head. This looks oily and has a fairly high viscosity. Nose is very alcoholic, lots of dark ripe fruit, plums and prunes and its very sweet and sugary. Taste is very sweet. Getting lots of prune, ripe dark fruit, lots of sugar. I’m finding it a bit too cloying. Oily and syrupy in the mouth.

Coco aroma. Very thick and chewy palate. Hoppy when cold in the initial sips. Middle has cereal flavors. Crazy thick is.what I’ll remember.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
65cl bottle, served in Duvel cup. Pitch black with a majestuous light brown creamy crown on top. Exellent appearence. The aroma is roasted malts, caramel, hints of licorice and grape. Nice contrast regarding taste: coffee, chocolate, and some hops show up. The oat touch is subtle, but helps on giving a peculiar character. Slightly sweeter palate than expected, even though one still gets bitterness (coffee-like). Creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation. Very good brew.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft. Jet black with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, largely oat and chocolate. Taste follows suit but is amplified. Sweet but not too sweet. Almost reminiscent of a hearty alcoholic chocolate milk. Rich silky palate. Not sure why it took me so long to try this one. It's great.
