2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2010 I was disappointed with this one. A simple oatmeal stout. Some caramel and barley on the palatte, but this one was mostly empty for me. Some pancake syrup in the nose and taste. Perhaps, I got a bad bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 22 oz. bottle, pours deep black with a thin tan head. Aroma of dark, rich roasted malt, cacao and oatmeal. Flavour is unusually sweet for an oatmeal stout, perhaps a tad too sweet, but still bold and complex - dark chocolate and coffee. One of the better ones in the series.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Pours really black with a thin dark tan head. It smells wonderful. Chocolate and treacle? Full bodied and mildly carbonated. Flavor is chocolate, light treacle, maybe a little dark fruit, and it finishes smoothly bitter in a burnt malt sense. It is super fantastic. Great mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Lovely rich roast, just verging towards bitter espresso. Jet black and a dark tan head which dissipates quickly. Taste has quite a hefty punch of burntness to it, and just a bit of alcohol. As you swallow it expands and richens to have more espresso, and less raw burntness. Ashy bite in the finish. Quite lively carbonation heightens the harshness of the burntess. Very very nice for the brief moment you swallow, but either side of that it’s either too boozey or to burnt, and lacking balance, which is a shame. Becomes slimier and stickier down the glass too.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Belmont Party. Poured a black color with a moderate creamy brown head that mostly lasted and produced sticky legs and good lacing. Good roasted malt, hardy candy and woody alcohol aroma. Full body with a smooth texture. Heavy complex bittersweet stout flavor with a smooth sweet oatmeal finish of long duration. Very well balanced complex stout. This is a standout beer.
