50 cl bottle @ Timo A. BBE 12/2016.Garrold (5285) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2016
Pours dark brown color with a small head. Dark berries on the nose, dark malts, some coffee notes with chocolate and faint vanilla. Bitter chocolaty flavor with toasted malts and distant spice notes, some black currant and cocoa. Ashy or even burnt feeling here.
Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Nearly black. Thick, dense, lasting, tan head. Great looking beer. Nose has ripe blackberry. Tangy, roast coffee bean. Light malts. Notes of milky coffee. Taste has bitter roast malts. Nice tang of dark berry. Medium body. Touch too much fizz, maybe. Roast malt bitter finish. Looks fantastic, and is super tasty at the ABV. suurjuust (3542) - ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle shared by Phil, thanks! Dark brown beer, very small beige head. Nose is apples and peas, some roast and chocolate. Roasty and chocolatey flavor, more pea notes. Fairly chuggable.

500ml bottle (Ales by Mail)martjoobolut (4401) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2016
Woh, apple aroma, and solvents I could clean my paintbrush with. Some roast behind that. Porridgy mashy body, some gluey aspects. Harsh burnt finish. Rough and dirty mess. WTF apple? This is off.
Bottle (shared by fatphil, thanks). Aroma is fruity, apples, roast, malt. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, apples , cocoa, malt, somewhat acidic. Finish is roast bitter. Body s rather thin. Overall: ok-ish. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle split at ChrisO tasting, London. It pours a dark brown color with medium beige head. Aroma is rich dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, leather, resin, toffee. Taste has tangy dark fruity, roasted malts, espresso and dark chocolate. Medium bodied with creamy texture and good carbonation. Overall, tasty stout graham_murphy (681) - - JUN 9, 2015
I’ll be having more of this. Right down the middle of what an oatmeal stout should be. Strong but not an imperial stout. Sweet with tastes of chocolate, coffee and caramel from malt. Not a lot of taste coming from the hops (ok maybe that could be the only weakness but then again this matches a traditional stout). Well done. tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Bottled; rated at home; 1st May 2015.
Opaque with baige lacing. It kinda shot out of the glass a bit so I hope it’s not too bad a bottle. Head retention is excellent. No faults there.
Aroma is chocolate chip cookies; burnt oak; cold espresso cream; spruce pine; grains and leather. Taste is leather; velvet; backcurrants; chocolate cookies; some sugar residue and clotted cream and cold espresso.
It’s a nice example of a stout. I enjoyed this one.
