Bottle. Almost black and opague. Grainy roasty cvreamy aroma. Cream, rye bread, some sour milky notes and chocolate cake in the flavor. Easy drinker, sweet, quite likeable. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2014
(Tap at De Prael Proeflokaal, Amsterdam as Hijs’M oatmeal stout)
Very dark brown, opaque, with a ring head on top. Roasted and maple
aroma, with a bit of dark chocolate. Some maple in the mouth also,
along with dark bread.MrHangover (4559) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2014
Fairly soft in the mouth, and I’d have given this a 4 for palate,
but I’d have liked a slightly fuller feel from the oatmeal.
This gets a little sweeter as the glass empties, but it’s still not
too sweet at the bottom. Not at all bad.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

Bottle. Pours a very dark, almost black beer with a creamy beige head on top. Aroma of oatmeal porridge, chocolate milk and slight roast. Flavor is sweet chocolate, caramel malts with a milky touch to it. Nicely balanced, soft oily mouthfeel. Long, light cloying sweet aftertaste. Nice surprise by both these breweries. goozen (4071) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2014

33cl at home from BierNavigatie. Dark brown with a medium off-white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet with coffee, vanilla, roasted malts and oatmeal. A decent stout. Christos (5787) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a snifter glass. ABV 8.1%
Totally black pour, with a big dark brown head, thick and creamy. Very good retention, it leaves medium lacing on the glass.
Aroma of sweet chocolate, vanilla, light alcohol, oats.
Taste follows the aroma with oats, chocolate, just a touch of the alcohol, nice bitterness from roasted malts on the finish and on the aftertaste.
Medium body, low carbonation, quite dry and a bit tangy palate.
Very good. Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
Opaque black color with a very tan head that take a long time to fade out and keep a awesome lacing until the end. Aroma is quite weak with notes of roasted malt, oatmeal and coffee. Flavor is a mix of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and sweetness. Low carbonation in a full body with a seet slightly bitter finish. Very good one! Gerardgathier (512) - - APR 4, 2014
black, lots of carbo on the glass, big intens brown head.

Zwarte kleur met een volle bruine kraag. Ruikt crème, vanille, mout en kers. Smaakt zoetig, crème, melk, iets bitter, beetje chocolade en koffie. Iets dikke structuur.
