Bottle at Chris´s, october 07. Dark, opaque color with a medium yellowish head. Bitter chocolate, mild flavor with some chalky notes. Restrained aroma, some toasty notes. Medium mouthfeel, silky and gentle. Nice, quaffable oatmeal stout.

Very dark, almost black in color. Practically no head. Aroma and taste is typical of an oatmeal sweet. High in maltiness and chocolate. Not bad.

TechMyst (167) - Fox River Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2007
very opaque black, transmitted amber. spotty lacing. 1/2 finger head which disappated. roasted malt aroma. no visible bubbles but conditioning is active, but not overly so. first sip is heavenly. can’t really detect the oatmeal. dark malty goodness. excellent quality. tad bit of porter at the end if you’re looking for it.

sthlm (790) - Blank, Alabama, USA - NOV 19, 2007
[Bottle] Brown with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma is oats, sweet, roasted malt, coffee and a little alcohol. Taste is pretty sweet and malty with the roasted malt and notes of coffee very present in the finish. Fairly thin and smooth with a long finish. Pretty good, but too thin and aside from the finish could stand to have a little more flavor.

Gregis (1291) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Pours a deep, dark brown with garnet highlights and a finger of creamy, light tan head that leaves creamy lace in its wake. Dark roasted malt, coffee and cream with a backing of milk chocolate on the nose. Medium-bodied, slick and creamy with a roasted, bitter finish. Dark roasted malt and coffee with lighter notes of milk chocolate and faint lactose in the background transitioning toward a lingering, bitter, roasted coffee finish. This one is pretty tasty.

Black with decent, creamy tan head / Milk chocolate nose / Full, creamy body with balance of malt and hops / Flavors of milk chocolate, oats, and medium roast coffee, with toasty dry finish / Not a monster, but balanced and elegant.

tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - OCT 30, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 bottle. pours translucent dark brown with a thick foamy tan head. leaves heavy lacing on the glass. strong oat and light chocolate aroma. taste brings in a lightly sweet (brown sugar) roasted element and a moderate bitter. carbonation was a bit high at first but after a short sit it reigned in nicely. moderate thickness is lasting. this is an extremely well balanced stout that brings a variety of flavors. very impressed.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2007
A Mes rate: 75cl Bottle at Chris O’s Fukito tasting.
Mid dark brown with a slim tan head. Very heavy yeast and way too many oats. Milky chocolate notes and slight grassy hops. Very nutty. Finish is quick and unrewarding. No finesse.

duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2007
Bottle. Quite dry and nutty, with some light chocolate and also roasted malt notes. Didn’t seem to sweet to me, perhaps there is a bit of stickyness in here.

3.2
vyvvy (6731) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Pours very dark with a deep crimson hue when held to the light; it also has a good sized sudsy tan head. The aroma has vanilla, cream, roasted malt and acidic berry flavors. The taste starts with the roasted malt, sharp berries and light cream. the finish is more bitter and shows some lactic acid. An okay stout.
