3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 12oz Bottle. The pour was a deep dark black with a large (2-3 finger) light brown rocky head that was mostly diminishing and had good lacing.
The aroma was of roasted cereal malts and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of baker’s chocolate, molasses and a dark french roast coffee.
The taste was mildly malty sweet with a hint of coffee and a touch of molasses in the beginning and finished with a bold roasty sweet flavor and had a mildly bitter chocolate-coffee overtone. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a lightly bitter roasty taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was very close to full in body with a smooth creamy texture and a somewhat mild carbonation.
Overall this was a very roasty and satisfyingly bold brew that possessed a good smooth drinkability. This is a beer that is definitely worth having more than just one...
Bit more cocoa flakes than usual, roast, low bod - fairly light and thin but I reckon that’s par for the course for an OS, bread in the aroma, although felt rather lightly. Unobtrusive, but solid ChadPolenz (1819) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2017

2015 BJCP Category: 16B Oatmeal Stout
AROMA: Moderately strong fruity aroma (e.g. raisins, red fruits). Moderately coffee & vanilla presence. Faint diacetyl; possible oxidation - but these characteristics are not distracting. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Seemingly opaque black with clear garnet highlights. Large tan frothy foam mostly dissipates. 2/3
FLAVOR: Mild palette initially. Subdued notes of fruit. Becomes quite bitter at the apex with coffee and roasted malt flavor. Finishes rather sweet with genuine oatmeal taste. Leaves a tobacco/roasted coffee aftertaste. Minor presence of oxidation. No distinctive hop flavor or bitterness. 12/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body and carbonation. Very smooth and comfortable, but feels slightly watery. Seems much more sessionable strength than 5.8% ABV. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: A valiant effort for the style, but comes up a bit short. It is at least satisfactory. 6/10
TOTAL SCORE: 32/50
Piana bardzo wysoka, drobna, beżowa.
Zapach słodki, waniliowy, rodzynki, susoszna śliwka, lekko kwaskowaty.
W smaku gładkie, pełne, gęste. Lekko kwaskowate od słodów palonych. Trochę wanilli. Goryczka nieduża ale wyczuwalna. Bardzo dobrze ułożone. colui72 (1026) - HONG KONG - JUN 25, 2017
Pours black with very low carbonation, small tan head that vanished after 10 seconds. No lacing. Aroma of roasted barley and red wine (!). Tastes well roasted barley, oats, slightly tart, dark fruits, medium bitter towards the finish. Light body, thin feel, flat, long finish. An average stouts, tastes actually good but it’s too thin and watery. Fisler (546) - Bamberg, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2017
Dunkel, wenig Schaum. In der Nase Röstaroma. Im Trunk Kaffee, cremig, süß, süffig. Hinten nur etwas bitter. Schönes Sommerstout.

Bottle. Aroma: caramel, chocolate, coffee, toast, dough, vanilla. App: black, minimal tan head. Taste: surprisingly sweet, almost sour in its bite, a bit of coffee and chocolate. Palate: medium-full feel, fairly long finish. Overall: A bit odd for a stout, good, but different. italianjohn (3138) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2017

355ml bottle: Pours a jet black with thick Brown head that persists. Aroma of dark chocolate, prunes and raisins. Medium to full bodied, slick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall a very pleasant and drinkable stout. batneil (718) - - MAY 14, 2017
Smooth stout with a thin brown head. Pleasant but not overwhelming. Very drinkable. kaserov (747) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 24, 2017
Color negro, opaco, con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (apariencia cremosa y retención decente). Carbonatación alta visualmente (en boca más sutil). Textura cremosa y viscosa. Aroma a malta torrefacta, café frío, cacao, pasas y un ligero toque ahumado. En boca es dulce, con el cacao y el café bastante presentes, mucha malta torrefacta, menos presencia de las pasas y manteniendo el toque ahumado (se hace más presente al tragarla). Final que amaga con ser amargo pero no llega. Pasas y cacao en postgusto. Deliciosa.
