COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As self-confessed bogans we have a natural attraction to black, preferably matte, so Blacktop Oatmeal is close to our hearts. The key to creating a silky death metal monster like this is the caramelised Golden Naked Oats weve built it around. Sophisticates will detect the chocolate and coffee notes of creamy tiramisu. The rest of us will note that it matches our jeans.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Toms place. Thanks Tom. Black. A little smoky, roasty and BBQ sauce aroma, roasty, bitter, tea and chocolate syrup taste, then sweet and deep. Full body, long, syrupy aftertaste, rather fizzy.

Hoponmate (309) - NEW ZEALAND - NOV 14, 2016
Lacking in aroma but not taste. Smooth milky chocolate just like a tiramasu. The aftertaste however is a little lacky.

LesArgen (352) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2016
Probably not as OTT as Id expect from Pinhead. All up, its an easy drinking, reasonably unremarkable stout. It has a nice range of aromas including chocolate, coffee, caramel, lemon and cherry. The chocolate, coffee and lemon are prominent on tasting, but the palate is a little thin though the length is good.

Pdubyah (709) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 15, 2016
The roasted burnt barley is almost overdone to charcoal, but there is a lot to carry this and it ends well :-)

330ml bottle. Aroma is chocolate, espresso and a little dried fruit. Flavour has coffee and chocolate but also some boozy fig notes. Nice.
