12 oz. canned 01/05/2017, indicating 6.5% "oatmeal stout". Pours dark chocolate with a sticky cobweb of foam. Smells of dark chocolate, molasses and a touch of blackberry. Tastes of chocolate, toasted walnut with the shell, coffee and licorice. Almost medium body has medium-high carbonation and a drinkable balance. Fraerm (11) - Misterbianco, ITALY - APR 4, 2017
Appearance black w beige frothy head. Aroma: coffee, sweet chocolate, red fruits. So smooth in the mouth, quite hoppie too.
I enjoyed it hman43 (1588) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2016
It pours dark brown, not quite black, with a brown head. The head is creamy and thick. It has aromas of roasted malts, some hints of coffee, and some sweetness from fruit and low levels that is hard to identify. There are flavors of roast, oats, and some coffee that provides some bitterness with the flavor. There are also some floral elements in the flavor as well. It has a medium body that is smooth. It has medium high carbonation. Overall, this beer provides a good balance with the roasted elements combining well with the oat and coffee flavors. The floral elements provide some background balance to the overall presentation. Beerhunter111 (20487) - P´Castle, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2016

This is one outstanding stout. Had it on nitro at the smokehouse. Really, really nice, chocolatey on the palate and leaves you wanting another pull. Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - NOV 16, 2015
Nera ed impenetrabile, caffettosa e cioccolatosa. Una buona stout, più equilibrata della versione invecchiata in botte ma meno interessante. Ambro206 (362) - ITALY - JAN 10, 2015
Che birra! Al naso emergono unicamente i fortissimi aromi tostati. La birra si presenta con un impenetrabile colore e una compatissima e resistente schiuma color caffèlatte. In bocca oltre al tostato si avvertono le note lasciate dal legno delle botti di bourbon nelle quali invecchia perfettamente bilanciate da un deciso aroma erbaceo. Il corpo è perfettamente presente in tutti i momenti e il retrogusto è eccezionale. Una birra da bere ogniqualvolta se ne ha l’occasione.
