January 19th, 2015 - I got out my special Guinness glass for this Oatmeal Stout, thinking it would look nice with the toucan perilously balancing a stout on his beak, and to all appearances, both look almost exactly the same in color, for both the liquid and the head. The aroma is a little less exciting on this brew though, mostly because its generic and a little flat. Malty, to be sure, but there's no three dimensionality to it, and nothing to grab at. This is compensated for a little in the flavor, which near room temperature exudes some chocolate notes, a little hazelnut and the distinctive taste of Nutella, which I welcome. gopherfan99 (1996) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2017

Rich dark brownish to black color with a light brown head of creamy foam. Traces of coffee and cocoa aromas and flavors with a hint of dark fruit character. A smooth oatmeal stout worth a try. GenDV138 (7470) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2017

650ml bottle. Jet black colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimalyl lacing, beige to tan head. Nuttily and slightly chocolately, dark malty aroma, a touch of molasses and treacle, chocolate yoghurt. Taste is roasty dark malty, nuttily, slightly chocolately, hints of cocoa, chocolate yoghurt, mildly bitter hoppy counterweight, a touch of red and dark fruit, hints of coffee. Though many-faceted in analysis rather simple, if not monotonous in drinking. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottled (AbM). Black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is chocolate, some roast, mild burnt sugar and some syrup. Flavour is being quite similar in a rather sweet way, as the alcohol also gives it a slight kick. Ok, but then again quite simplistic. Dogbrick (13413) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Sample at the Tehachapi Beer & Wine Festival on 07/18/2015: Pours black with some ruby around the edges, and a medium tan head that diminishes gradually. Patches of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and hops. Medium body with flavors of chocolate malt, roasted coffee and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
