3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Opaque black, thick tan head. A bit disappointing, slight cherry flavor with the roastiness. Rather sour. I had sought after this stuff for a long time.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2004 Pours syrupy black with a dark brow decent sized head. Aroma of roasted malt, espresso. Mocha, dark chocolate, mollases, even some black currant detected in the taste. Nicely hopped. Bitter finish. Palate is smooth, carbonation well articulated, rather full-bodied. Fantastic. Bottle.

Dark in color. Complex with big aroma and big roast flavor. Very good, but lower in alcohol. Pleasant to drink but personally I have had a better one at Kroghs. Kroghs makes a great oatmeal stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2003 Black color, lasting brown head. Big roasty complex aroma. Roasty flavor, but a little thin on the tongue. Overall very good, and lower on the alcohol, increasing drinkability. Personally, I have had better (Kroghs has one as good or better, and Troegs Cask Oatmeal is up there), but overall this is a top notch brew.

(Bottle) This is one of my favorite oatmeal stouts. The beer pours to a black color with a thin brown creamy head. The flavor is complex with hints of dark chocolate, roasted oatmeal, nuts, and coffee. Excellenst all around brew!

Wonderful beer! Have been looking forward to this one for a long time. Beer has wonderful deep chocolate/roasted/nutty/coffee aroma. Appearance is in my opinion perfect. Deep, very dark brown with big light brown head that is retained. Tons of lacing. Flavor is wonderful malt and roasted nuts, there is almost nice hoppiness in the finish which is a bit dry. I am so glad winter is here so I can gladly quaff brews like this.

Beautiful black colouration, with a great cherry mocha head. Hints of dark chocolate, coffee, bit of oatmeal, and possibly some fruits. This beer almost has a different scent every time you smell it. Not a big fan of stouts, but this beer makes me appreciate them more. Would love to try this on tap.

Roasty/Toasty first impression. Very Nice. Part of Gift Pack I was given of exotic brews. Have had a few Stouts to appreciate a good one. This is one. Nice and Smooth.
