A wolf in sheep’s clothing, this smoky stout has a silky touch that belies its rich lingering taste.

Very dark brown with next to no head. Aromas of oats, malt and liquorice. Taste balanced sweet and bitter. Medium mouthfeel. No carbonation. Pretty good but not outstanding.

weaselkenievil (1606) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Bottle at home. Almost black with a thin beige head, Aroma is roasted malts. Flavour is sweet chocolate, roasted malts, little fruit. Just lacked depth, character, knackers, a hat I don’t know. Not mysterious and compelling enough.

Taste: Low/medium bitter and sweetness with low sourness. Palate: Thick grainy texture, light body, low/average carbonation, abrupt bitter, smoky, earthy, roasted/burnt malt light chocolate finish with bubblegum and banana in the mix. Comments: Tasty, but head was quick to disappear.

ComradeK (977) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a very small beige head, which fades quickly and without leaving any lacing. Black coffee, mild liquorice and a little butterscotch make up the aroma. Mild lemon hops up front lead into black coffee and mild liquorice in the mid-palate. There is a faint hint of cocoa in the finish. This is a fairly missable stout, although to be fair to it, my bottle was a little past its BBD.

zacgillbanks (2088) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Edingurgh. A rich black beer with a creamy chocolate flavour, red fruity notes, liquorice and a slight roasted coffee finish.

walshy (1) - Johnstone, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2014 does not count
Legend - Wild Oats and Chocolate - my nose might not be what it should be, after 2nd pour "quick one" I get a head and more of the oats - toasted oats smell. I picked up more of a liquorice toasted oats nose rather than chocolate, taste, more toasted oats than anything else. The toasted oats on the palate over rides any other flavour for me.

Fairly standard stout. Biscuit, malt, light treacle, some bitterness. Perhaps a little oat but not particularly prominent. Reasonable.

All I taste on this one is ash and cigarettes. Awful. Unless you’re a smoker, avoid. Pouring this one out. :(
