Got a few bubbles but I think that works to advantage. Mocha flavour on the smell. Almost licorice on foundation but the hops comes through later. Lovely malt. Coffee finish. Pleasantly light on taste of alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a bad stout, but not as dense as could be expected. Pleasant aroma with solid head and nicely hopped, but no long lasting effect on the palate.

330ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a moderate beige head, which does not last all that well, nor leave much lacing. Milk chocolate, white coffee and a touch of hazelnut make up the aroma. Mild herbal hops up front give way to a velvety body, with smooth milk chocolate and hazelnut notes. A little latte comes in at the finish, and there is a mild hazelnut aftertaste. This is not the most exciting stout out there, but it is still a pretty good effort.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 Bottle, 12C. Dark brown with a modest tan head that doesnt last. Aroma of mocha, Indian sweetmeats (cardamon burfi) , blackberries. Smooth, but carbonation is a just a little high to be silky. Roasted and chocolate flavours sit amongst treacle and Indian sweet-like malts. Fairly sweet and doesnt really dry out much, but the whole thing is lightened by quite high and slightly spicy bitterness. Very nice..

Was pleased to find this in Qld, now they decide to come to Vic. Fresher bottle, home glass? - looks fine. Impressive.

Good one - very easy drinking - medium bodied - classic flavour - a bit short on aftertaste (cola-like?) so kinda two dimensional but... I like it.

Pyobon (1378) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2013
(Bottle) Black with a tan head. Subtle aroma with hints of offer and malt. Excellent fine and plentiful carbonation. Smooth taste with balancing dark / burnt toffee notes. Very pleasant.

bgb1991 (131) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2013
Sweet chocolate, roast almond and sultana aroma. Thick viscous pour. Too much carbonation for me. Watery finish. Overall not a stunning oatmeal stout, lacks depth of flavour.

Oakes (16970) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2013
Dark brown, nice head. Aroma hints at a rich, fudgey balanced brew. Full body, creamy and delicious. Sweet accent, just enough hop. Really nice stout.

Not a bad stout, rather quaffable. However, is just a little too thin and lacks punch. Much prefer the bigger brother of this.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle pours opaque engine oil deep black with tan head.. Diminishing. Perhaps glassware... Aromas of sweet chocolate toasted and fruity malt character. Med full body, complex malt, sickly sweet almost, creamy oats mouthfeel, mocha, chocolate, cocoa, bitter coffee bean finishing up creamy but dry, lingering roasted malts.
