A fine oatmeal stout, but nothing too interesting. Tastes and smells a bit like oatmeal, nothing much else. Had on tap at La Trappe.

Sample from Erica at p house, pours clearish brown color with no head or lace to note. Pretty thin mouth and body. Notes are roasted malt, grains, milk chocolate, and some oats but no real oatmeal flavor. Apple yeast or something in the nose. Not good laiti (8468) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 10/2013GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 13, 2013
A gusher unexpected, one fourth went straight on my kitchen table. Aroma is musty with spices, some bitter cocoa and hints of bush leaves. Flavour is spicy with cocoa and peppery tones. Also some dark chocolate. Finishes with some rubbery bitterness. A bit watery and flat, not my thing.
Tap at Blue Palms, Hollywood. Good foam on a clear, deep cola pour. Weak lace. Sweet strawberry nose, short cake. Turns out almost all of the beers on tap at Blue Palms today had a strawberry nose. Must have decided to skip tap line cleaning this afternoon. Sweet cola and big grenadine comes through. Boozy, sweet body with sweeter strawberry. Strange. Thinner body. Sugary and cloying. Medicinal.

330 ml bottle. Pours a black colour with a thick white head. Strong aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, biscuit and cacao. Flavour of vanilla, chocolate biscuit, roasted malts, almonds and some mild berries. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Rich and tasty, aroma is very interesting as well. unclemike (3121) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Dark brown with a beige head. Aromas are malty with chocolate and coffee. Spicy and herbal with some alcohol. Flavours are chocolate malts with berries. Spicy with warming alcohol. A touch on the gritty side but still decent nuplastikk (6254) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2013
500ml bottle at Maxs. Deep orange-black. Rim lacing beige head. Pronounced sweet chocolate dessert aroma, not roasty. Tastes overly sweet, very brownie like. Hardly a world class product....chocolate syrup. OK maybe, but definitely not worth a premium price. Radek Kliber (7352) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 7, 2013
