I’m a bit surprised by the poor ratings here. I rather enjoyed this. It’s a dark brown stout, though it doesn’t have much of a head. Smells slightly smokey and with a lot of sweet chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. The smoked portion is a tad weak, I’ll admit, but I still found this to be a rather enjoyable stout.

Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Excellent Little Brother! Murky and very dark brown with tan ring. A little roast, a little smoke, a little acetaldehyde. Bitter, a little dry and smoky with some dark fruit undertones. Medium body, dry finish, very soft carbonation. Nice.

zvsn (605) - ISRAEL - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks kerenmk. Almost black without any head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Slightly sweet, weak roasty flavors, moderately bitter, short finish. Thin body, watery texture, no creaminess at all . Did not feel the smoke and oats.

DSG (5812) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks kerenmk. Dark brown with no head. Aroma of mild to moderate smoked meat, wood, caramel, a bit of nuts and a bit of chocolate. Malty flavor, somewhat smoky, with some roastiness, chocolate, caramel, nuts and a slightly ashy finish. Medium-bodied, quite flat.

lesifflebiere (1271) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Un stout plutôt opaque, mais très mince ; arômes indubitablement fumés en nez, avec un fond de fromage fondu, aussi bizarre que ça puisse paraître. En bouche, très mince, beaucoup de fumé, encore ce cheddar jaune qui revient hanter le tout, avec un peu de légumes bouillis pour décorer. Je ne croyais pas qu’il était possible de retrouver ces arômes dans un stout. Merci Trafalgar de m’avoir ouvert l’esprit, à défaut de m’avoir vendu une bonne bière.

samzim (205) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Scent of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Opaque dark brown colour. Flavours of chocolate, caramel, and coffee. Medium bitterness with heavy body and heavy carbonation. Not such a fan.

Gluepot (62) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014
Definitely understated, but the advertised elements are all there. The nose is chocolate and malt. There is a thin light tan head on a black body. Taste elements include a mild oatmeal maltiness, chocolate and a touch of smoke. Certainly well balanced.

Freaky_tiki (552) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
The oatmeal stout that really isn’t much of a stout. The smoked beer that isn’t that smokey. Pours thin & dark with nary a cap to be found, which makes for a somewhat disappointing appearance. Taste is slight & watery (and not the thick water soup blandness of guiness). Very lightly smoked. Everything seems so reserved, so slight, so timid.

660 ml shared with dad from lcbo A: chocolate, caramel / licorice App: dark brown close to black no head. T/p: Med body with sweet but short finish. O: deceiving. Didn’t get any smoke and would have expected more mouthfeel from the oatmeal.
