Excellent! I liked everything about this one and found it quite a surprise in every way. I simply wasn’t expecting much but it blew me away. Aroma is over the top so I knew it would make my mouth sing...the malt comes through nicely as such a great compliment to the espresso. ghostbeer (248) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Smooth, delicious malt and intensely creamy. This might be the best oatmeal stout I have ever had. I love it. andrewje41 (4260) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2016
16 oz can poured. Pours a thick jet black with a blanket of tan foam head and lacing. A both sweet and toasty malt aroma. Flavor is initially on the sweeter side. A good roasted malt, soft spice. A big hit of espresso like bitterness. Thick milk chocolate, and a resting roasted malt late palate. A stout that I feel like I can drink all day. Very tasty. I enjoy the subtle bitterness that sits with this stout. Interesting, and very well made. googleimage83 (170) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2016
Pours almost black, fairly large and lacey mocha head. Toasty aroma of coffee, chocolate, butter tart; noticeable oatmeal presence - very smooth. Taste is creamy dairy, chocolate, coffee flavors; some cherry, brown sugar, slight smoke. Nice hefty body. It isn’t particularly unique, it’s just well made. tfontana (1130) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Cigarette City. Appearance is only slightest of red with light source directly behind, otherwise opaque black, with finger-width foamy light brown head with poor retention and minimal sudsy lacing. Aroma is sweet roasted malt like dark fruit with toffee, baker’s chocolate, creamy oats and vanilla. Taste is sweet over bitter roasted malt with dark fruit, toffee, molasses, vanilla, baker’s chocolate, mild ash. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin, smooth texture, average carbonation and lingering finish as taste. Overall, didn’t get the long-lasting head nor the espresso, and it’s a bit thinner than I’d like, but this was quite enjoyable just the same.

Pours a dark brown with rich, tan head. Eggy, chocolatey, oatmeal nose. Weak palate and flavor profile. Not sure about the hullabaloo with this brew. Some smokiness in the flavor. Drinks like a Guinness--weak and lifeless. Werckmeister (3331) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 4, 2016
0,33l bottle at home bought from Saveur Biere. BB 18 March 2020. black color, dark coffee-colored head. smells of yoghurt, light vanilla, spices, caramel, licorice, bit dusty. yoghurt is only for a second noticeable, afterwards some nice sweet vanilla/caramel notes come through. overall nice smell. medium body, light carbonation, rather thin moutfeel (for a stout anyway). tastes of vanilla, licorice, earthy notes, caramel, some ash, some yoghurt notes again, spices. finishes lightly roasty / dry with notes of vanilla, licorice and light yoghurt. overall good stuff, the yoghurt notes are a bit distracting, but not too bad. lacks a bit of body / flavour inbetween, which usually shows with age, but I just got the beers a couple days ago, and it says E2016, which I assume means bottled 2016. anyway, still nicely drinkable, and this comes from someone who does not like vanilla beers.

Looks good: ebony black, frothy light brown head, sticky lacing. Dry aroma has coffee, ash, milk chocolate. Medium body, dry, soft carbonation, bitter roast in finish, bit herbs. Nice one, balanced, good flavors. stevoj (5588) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 16, 2016
16oz can from Foothills Liquor. Inky black pour with a soft, fairly creamy beige head. This is a straight up stout, big roasty grains in the aroma and taste, oatmeal sweetens it up a bit and provides some nice smooth texture. Finishes dry and ashy.

16oz can thanks to stevoj. Pours out black topped with a tan head. Nose is nice chocolate rich malts and some ash. Taste is more of the chocolate ash and nice roast.
