Thanks to DougShoemaker for this one! Outstanding Stout, although I still like Sam Smith’s a little more. My only negative comment about this one is that the alcohol flavor was not hidden as well as it could have been (or do we call that ’bitterness’?). Roased aroma and nice coffee flavoring. Almost black with great lacing. I am going to try to hunt this one down again sometime. crossovert (13080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Nitro. It tastes like I would imagine a caramel infused coffee would, smooth and rich, bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2003
(Bottle) This is one of my favorite oatmeal stouts. The beer pours to a black color with a thin brown creamy head. The flavor is complex with hints of dark chocolate, roasted oatmeal, nuts, and coffee. Excellenst all around brew! Bov (12888) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 5, 2001
dark colour, fine lace, toasted, coffee aroma, smooth, full-bodied, nice bitterness j12601 (12700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep dark black with a large creamy mocha head. Very pretty. Rich roast, sweet plum, vanilla and caramel, and faint hints of smoky coffee. Creamy, nice roast. Cocoa, light coffee, sweet oatmeal, really nice roast notes, but soft. Soft smoky finish, lingering cocoa bitterness.

Bottle acquired in trade with beerhugger (thanks!). Poured a dark black with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, and coffe. Additional flavors of light oatmeal. A little smoky as well. Smooth body and very easy to drink. thewolf (12635) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 8, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.jcwattsrugger (12471) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Pours dark brown with a stunning coffee-brown and exceptionally creamy head. Really great duration and soft lacing. Stunning sweet aroma, lots of sweet milk chocolate, light coffee notes and mildly roasted. Some vanilla as well. Light and still a bit creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, a good chocolate note and a mild roasted bitterness. This is one hell of a stout, considering the 5 % ABV.
12oz bottle-pours a rich brown head and black color. Aroma is rich/sweet dark malt-chocolate, secondary earthy hops. Taste is dark malt-chocolate, lots of ask. Not my taste. Thanks decaturstevo for sharing. Sammy (12387) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2004 nice chocolate lack color and taste. Thick consistency. Nice bittersweet chocolate/expresso aftertaste with a tad of sweetness.. Can sip and enjoy.

half a year past it’ s due date. Bottle from ølbutikken enjoyed at home.
pours somewhere between black and very dark brown, brown head that doesn’t seem entirely stable.
strong aroma of coffeee, roasted malts, toffee, chocolate, faint banana milkshake.
very very strong flavor, more than full bodied, starts out slightly sweet and chocolaty and ends superdry heavily roasted without becoming burnt. aftertaste very dominated by roasted malts and other roasted stuff.
palate is real nice, thick brew, but strangely, somehow it feels a little watery too. Overall it is absolutely amazing that someone gets this much flavor out of a brew at only 5%. If i had to guess, i’d put the ABV at 10% and guess this was an imp.stout or something. for a 5% beer we’ve got unbeliveably intense flavor and aroma. and i though guinness was amazing for a "low alc", blah. this is the real stuff.
