COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
Dark, smooth, deeply delicious and definitely moreish. This outstanding oatmeal stout has to be tasted to be fully understood. A medal winner at Oakwood in 2000, it achieves its satisfyingly malty flavour in part due to the roasted barley and Golding hops.
Ingredients: Maris Otter pale malt, black malt, wheat malt, roasted barley, oatmel malt. Goldings hops.

heavy (2161) - Split, CROATIA - APR 28, 2009
09/04 0.5 l bottle courtesy of ogivlado, thanks for sharing! It poured very dark reddish-black body with medium sized to smaller brown head. Aroma is fine, coffee malty with some chocolate and dark fruits. Some acidity here, but in its flavor as well. Fine woody and caramel maltiness dominates here, and it would be really nice if not so thin bodied. Finish was short then, some acidity more pronounced here. OK, but a bit too boring as lacks body.

ogivlado (5882) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 25, 2009
Bottled(500ml). -Black coloured, small cappuccino head, light roasted coffee nose. Dry coffee, mild chocolate and roasted malt taste with bitter finish. One-dimensional and weak stout, and to be honest I’ve expected much more.

Marko (4053) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 10, 2009
0.5l bottle courtesy of ogivlado (thanks!), shared with him and heavy
Poured a black body with almost no head (off white). Light nose, sweetish. Coffee & malt. Relatively acidic, dry coffee taste, a bit ashy, going long in the aftertaste, simple. Fine slightly woody maltiness but too acidic for its own good. Not unpleasant but a bit unbalanced. Not my type of stout.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2009
0.5 l bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2008. Black color. Sweetish, coffeish, toasty and biscuity aroma. Coffee bigtime in the flavor with some toasty and charred notes as well.

thewolf (11234) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle @ Beer Exposed, September 2008.
[my 100th stout, the 10th style to reach a century]
Pours deep brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma is softly roasted, some clear, sweet oatmeal. Light chocolate as well. A bit hin mouthfeel. Flavour is malty, with a rather dry chocolate and cocoa finish.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2008
Bottled@SBWF2008 (My rating #1000 for England). Black colour, small beigeish brown head. Roasted malts, tobacco and some caramelly notes. Flavour is sweet fruits, roasted malts and some mild coffee and burnt wood. Otherwise nice, but has a quite thin and watery body.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black with very thin short lasting head. In my opinion, not a good stout. A little roasted malts and coffee but nothing really doing much for me. Didn’t like this one, perhaps it’s just me.

(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm, 28 Aug 2008) Black colour with brief, pale brown head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of coffee, cocoa and dried fruit. Roasted, malty taste with coffee, ashes and a dry coffee bitterness in the finish. Fairly thin body, but nice, dry and tasty stout.
