Bottle... Pours black with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is super chocolaty - dark chocolate - with a small splash of black strap molasses. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is a carbonic melange of 85%-cacao dark chocolate, black strap molasses and charcoal. Uber roasty, burnt and a hint sulphury in the finish. Pretty darned good stuff. ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2016

Dark brown pour with a brown head. Dark chocolate, roast, nuts, oat, and dry malt flavor. Bit of a booziness on the end of the palate as well.
Black color with a tan head. Roasted grain and caramel on the nose with bittersweet cocoa, plum and roast on the pallet. Not as smooth as the vanilla Oatis but more true to the origins of a fulfilling stout. jmgreenuk (9979) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 13, 2016

Black color with mocha head. Aroma has dark fruits, mostly figs, brown sugar and sweet malt. Taste is really well balanced. First you get the rich malt, followed by a roasty bitterness. Body is not heavy but feels really smooth. Overall it’s a tasty, easy drinking stout with a nice mouthfeel. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2016
