Bottle thanks to Toby. Pours out dark brown almost black topped with a small tan head. Nose is sweet milk chocolate roast a dark fruit thing going on and some earthy notes. Taste is more of the nice sweet milk chocolate notes a good roast and the fruit shows again.

Dark black with beautiful mocha head. Pretty sweet. Chocolate up front with a lot of vanilla as it rounds out. This isnt a sweet stout? A lot of cocoa powder. Like nestle quik. Thick. Courtesy of HankDaStank!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.65l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. It’s a really deep and dark brown this, not far off being black in color. A small quickly fading dark brown thread on the top, no real lacings. Smells sweetish with lots of vanilla. Coconut, wet cocoa beans, some chocolate wrapper and a little bit of something mild spicy. Is it cinnamon? Smells nice. Tastes a bit toothpasty. Minty vanilla with chocolate and burnt sugar raisins. Bitter burnt aftertaste. Smells better than it tastes. 25.02.2015

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Complex aromas of molasses, chocolate and coffee. Better than average foam. Taste was solid through out my sitting. Not all stouts can say that. Just bitter enough to keep dark chocolate notes going. Complexity is this beer’s forte.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque black from the bomber with fluffy tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of nice chocolate notes and earth over some oxidized soy. Taste follows, less oxidation on the tongue. Soft carbonation, a little thin for an oatmeal stout, but solid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with smooth roasted oat notes and light oak notes is pretty enticing. Taste is a great mix between some roasted oat malt notes with black chocolate notes and a smooth finish with light residual sugar and light oak notes. Body is full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation. Solid beer which packs a ton of flavours.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at ESBLS. Very dark with a tan ring. An earthy fruity aroma. Gentle. Surprising bitterness here. It is dry. Chocolate under that. Earth and fruit. A rich feel. Interesting.
