Hopsclation (89) - Chicago, - JUL 12, 2013
Very nice stout as expected from firestone (underrated brewery anyone?), sweet milk chocolate with pleasant roasted coffee hop bite. Perhaps because its marketed as an oatmeal stout with the term velvet in the name, i was expecting a real full creamy palate like samuel smiths, and it did not have that. So my only complaint was that it was rather thin, however if you go into it expecting more of a sweet milk stout like left hand, it delivers.

KW92 (1419) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 25, 2017

Data zabutelkowania: 01.12.2016
AROMAT : Intensywny. Dominują ciemne słody (paloność, prażoność) oraz nuta zbożowa.
SMAK : Wytrawne. Lekko palone. Posmak gorzkiego kakaa. Zaskakująco wodniste. Ekstremalnie pijalne.
WYGLĄD : Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, niska.
OGLNIE : Lekki, dobry stout. Cieszy mnie fakt, że w Polsce mamy już takich na pęczki.

TeijoA (65) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2017
35,5 cl bottle, bottled on 01/12/2016. Black color with a small beige head. Roasty coffee and chocolate aromas, some sweetness, true to style, nothing much unexpected. Mouthfeel has some weird fizzy thing going on that is the first thing one notices, not totally sold on the creaminess either. Body could definitely be fuller, but then again its to be expected for 5,5 %. On the drier side of stouts, which works alright. Nice coffee with chocolate hiding in the back in taste, but a bit muted. Just needs more body.

dysenteri (256) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2017
35,5 cl bottle from Beergium. Pours pitch black with beige head. Aroma is roasty, dark chocolate, coffee, malts, liquorice. Medium sweetness, a bit smokey roastiness in taste. Creamy mouthfeel, it kinda "foams" up in the mouth when you take a sip, growing greatly in volume (dunno how to explain it...). Great balanced stout, feels a bit luxurious.

Idiosynkrasie (7102) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2017
355ml bottle. Jet black colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige head. Roasty, dark malty aroma, notes of coffee, burnt coffee bones, cocoa, a touch of liquorice and tobacco. Taste is roasty dark malty, notes of espresso, coffee, cocoa, subtle sweetness with a touch of treacle and liquorice, mildly bitter hoppy counterweight with minimally metallic touch. Superbly balanced, smooth palate, highly drinkable.

Brandon1989 (602) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2017
Pours a dark black with a two finger creamy tan head with good retention. The aroma is roasted barley, faint chocolate, oatmeal. Flavor is more of the same with a prominent oatmeal taste.

martjoobolut (3806) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 8, 2017
Bottle, bottled 01.12.2016 (from beergium). Pours dark brown-black with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, roast, coffee, some oatas. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, coffee, malt. Finish is roast bitter. Feels light but not watery, really well balanced. Overall: great beer, really well balanced, really clean (but not dead), Reminds Fullers Porter for some reason.

17Beer (291) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Malt and roast carmel smells. Pours a dark red brown with a persistent thin tan head of tight tiny bubbles. Lots of lacing. Big round sweet tastes with some coffee notes and a mild slightly astringent finish. Super well made stout.

coachd (731) - Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Smells a little weak - some chocolate, malty but watered down. Nice looking shiny black color with a tan head. Tastes rich, roasted, coffee flavors and milk chocolate. The aftertaste is crisp and short with some lactose sweetness. Nice smooth palate. This was pretty good.
