(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.Benzai (16931) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 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. 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. sebletitje (10494) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2016
Sample @ Stadsbrouwhuis, Leiden.
Ambrée, brune col beige.
Arôme au nez malté, caramel, crystal, carafa avec un rétro pâle, léger côté chocolaté étant accompagné d’effluves de fruits noirs.
Palais est malté mettant bien en avant le s8%, pomme caramel, fruité noir, sucre candy et pointe de malt crystal. Le tout est finemetn collant aux lèvres avec une levure laissant penser à une phase belge et un chocolat ayant la belle part de ce stout. Pas forcément retrouvé l’épaisseur de l’avoine. jmgreenuk (10386) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 6, 2014
Tap at the Jopenkerk. Poured a clear dark brown with a big frothy tan head. The aroma is light roasted malt, caramel, toffee. The flavour is medium bitter, light sweet with a smooth, light fruit, alcohol liqourice bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Media bodied with average carbonation. It’s a fine beer but I expected a little more creamy caramel milky smoothness and less of the alcohol inspired bitterness which is starting to dominate.
