2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with creamy but thin tan head. Aroma is noticeable from several feet away. Its toasty, roasted, chocolate, earthy, beef jerky, and some sweetness but more lighter malt aroma than expected from a stout. Its a nice aroma but it doesnít seem to fit the style. The flavors are smooth and dry. Roasted coffee and sweetness that is toffee like. Oatmeal and a strong bready feel lend to a nice sweet and dry finish where the roasty malt lingers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at MVP from old notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor had roasted malts, dark chocolate, earth, dry, not much in the way of oatmeal sweetness or that typical smooth mouth feel that comes with it, pretty bland and boring.

Excellent sweet stout. Black color with tan head. Creamy chocolate caramel taste, with hints of coffee malts. Good balance with hops, roasted barley and malts. Not overly sweet, but definitely hint of sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark beer with a light tan head. Little lacing. Slight roastiness in the nose with a bit of oats and caramel. Sweet. Smooth velvety creamy mouth-feel. A slight bitterness. Very drinkable and almost a session beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured into a pint glass.
A: Charcoal black color. Thick creamy head with good retention.
S: Roasted dark malts. Oats and some coffee. Not strong enough. Grassy hops.
T: Big phenolic taste that is a bit off-putting. Bitter hop backbone. Oats and dark malts create a bittersweet chocolate taste. Unwanted aftertaste.
M: Medium body. Great carbonation. Really smooth.
D: Just not what Iím looking for. This is my first oatmeal stout, so maybe I just donít like the style. Iíll try another one next chance I get.

Draught at Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Black body, with a huge thick light-brown head. Very nice cookie aroma, not too strong though. The palate and taste are amazing, with a depth and complexity and a long finish. Simple but simply great.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black colour. White head which disappeared surprisingly quick. Chocolate smell. Really light taste. Aroma is milk chocolate and unfortunately a bit watery. Not really exciting beer, but not bad either.
