Much better than the BA score leads to believe.

Great roasty aroma. Nice brown head. Isn't as black as I prefer but has a nice dark color. Incredibly smooth. Bigger end of a medium body. Tastes pretty dam good.

On tap at the Khyber.

Basic stout appearance, dark brown-black, translucent around the edges, with a thin off-white head. Roasty aroma. Not much else to say there. In the taste, dark roasty malts, cacao, underlying milky sweetness, hints of anise. Body was a bit on the weak side for a stout, especially an oatmeal stout. This might make for a good nitro beer, but as is, it didn't do too much for me.

Good mellow oatmeal stout. Chocolate malts countered by hops nicely. I'd have it again!

A: Dark brown, can’t see through it. Almost black, a finger of rusty brown foamy head.


S: Coffee, chocolate, Kailua, liquor, malted milk like Malteesers, tar, black licorice.


T: Sweet base with a porter like, tar and burnt toast tasting quality. Not really smooth like some in this style. Bitter finish. Some fruity notes.


M: Medium thick oily body, with medium low carbonation. Coats the tongue.


O: Some inconsistencies, not really smooth. Takes you on a journey, but its more like a dark cold road than pleasant meadows. It grows on you though, and is nice in the end. Bought and drank in Chiang Mai, Feb 24th, 2015.

This is one of the 2 or 3 best grocery-store 6-pack beers in my area. It is smooth, robust, and filling...it feels more like food and less like liver poison. The BA score here is deceptively low in my opinion, although the verbal descriptions I see here are quite accurate.

Appearance: Dark black opaque, thick fluffy dark tan head, nice retention.
Smell: Slight chocolate and coffee, with some dark roasty malt aromas and just a tinge of sweet caramel.
Taste: Coffee up front, with some dark roast malty flavors and a bit of chocolate in the background.
Mouthfeel: Rather thin for a stout, but not bad. Pretty creamy from the oats, but very smooth and drinkable.
Overall: Not a bad stout, the oatmeal mellows it somewhat, but it's pretty tasty.
