Blind tasting at Papsø’sGrovlam (4247) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2009
Black color; nice head, creamy. Strong aroma of roasted malt, coffee and cardboard. The mouthfeel is thin, with an extremely aggressive flavor of burnt malt, from the flavor to the palate; by any means difficult to drink. Monodirectional, extreme, bad.

Pours lack with huge off-white head, leaving some lace. Roasty and malty aroma. Rather average mouthfeel for an oatmeal stout, with a distinct but not extreme biter finish. Rather easy drinking though under-par compared to readily available oatmeal stouts, such as St. Ambroise. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Black pour with the smallest tan head ever. Aroma of some chocolate, some oatmeal.Flavor is chocolatey, kind of burnt. A bit watery, a bit thin. its ok, but kind of meh. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2009
Thanks Cletus! Poured quick and thin into the glass, black with a small tan head. Burnt grain, no oatmeal on the nose to speak of. Light in body, but still has a bit of syrup on the tip of my tongue. Little charcoal notes remind me of summer and this light bodied brew would go good with grilled meats and potato salad. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2009
Pours to a dark brown body with a creamy tan head. The aroma is oatmeal and a light milk chocolate. The flavor is charred chocolate and light oatmeal. The palate is lightly charred with a light watery but oatmeal like texture. fidelis83 (2441) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2009 Pours jet black with tiny tan particualtes and a huge creamy dark tan head that has great retention but fades to a skim and ring that lasts for the rest of the glass and leaves sparse lacing. Aroma is roast, chocolate, sweet toasted grain, oatmeal cookies and some char. Flavor is smooth roast, dark chocolate, sweet granola cereal, earthy notes and some hints of toasted wood chips. Finish has some char, bitter hops, white tea and some herbal qualities. Palate is where it kind of falls flat, it really doesn’t have the body of a good oatmeal stout, seems watery and keeps the experience rather abrupt other than the too charred aftertaste.
