BBE Oct 2009! Opaque black beer, good mid brown head. Smooth palate with mild carbonation. Mild oxidisation, fades quickly. Mild dark malts, minerals. Dark chocolate powder. Subtle tangy fruits underneath. Trace of lactose. Carbonated bite in the finish. Not bad.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2006 LCRBM2. Black beer with thin dark beige head. Liquorice flavour, juicy tarry but subtle in the mouth. Dry on end. Yep, very dry stout which is quite satisfying. 3.4/5
Re-rate at Stellas Tap, Vancouver
Had the whole bottle to myself. Rich and satisfying full dark malt flavours with some liquorice. Perfect after dinner drink

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pitch black pour, with a small but dense beige to tan head. Nice lacings. Roasted nose with molasses, coffee, licorice and some weak alcohol notes. For a 5% ABV beer, it is certainly nice, but I could wish more more chocolatey aromas. Considering the ABV, itís quite full-bodied, with a quite dry mouthfeel, and a little warming feeling towards the end. The flavor is dominated by roastiness, but also chocolate and coffee plays a significant part. It is quite bitter, but thereís not much hoppy bitterness to be detected, itís mostly the coffee-like bitterness. It is a nice beer that slides down quite easily. (071008)

(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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost opaque black small expresso head. Light roasted aroma with some lactose in it. Roasted, a bit hoppy, coffeish. Finish is average, but this is really pleasant oat meal stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2003 (9/18/03): At last, a full bottle all to myself, not to share with a soul, just me me me. And no distraction of a many-beer tasting, just one man and one beer. Motor oil pour with a mocha brown head. Aroma is chocolate, light coffee. Taste is unsweetened coffee, and that's just not a flavor that sits well with me. Creamy medium/full body.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Black, with a big, dark brown head; potent roast aroma with slight alcohol and faint Ringwood yeast notes (all that black malt and they still can't kill it!); intense roastiness, very dry, hops in the back; has probably the biggest black malt note of any beer I know; bitter chocolate; big, fat, dry - absolutely decadent.
