look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

APPEARANCE: A foam that gives way to a thin layer of light ivory persistent. Foam marks are retained almost from the height reached by the serving. Black as coal. Nothing maroon or reddish tones. AROMA: It has very defined or intense odors. TASTE: Very smooth and creamy, a little sweet, no conflict and, therefore, quite bland. After a few minutes, it leaves a sour taste that is not unpleasant. Despite being an oatmeal stout, I notice no difference with respect to that. Overall rating: Not as good as they say. I thought a beer right, but nothing more. Perfect for those who do not want the ales or protruding tastes or smells of that love or hate. Not worth the expense: 2.95 euros.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dark, with a nice head

Smell: Oatmeal and raisins

Taste: Oatmeal, raisins, and molasses. Maybe even a bit of coffee.

Mouthfeel: Thick, rich, and creamy.

Overall: Very nice. I'm not sure if I should sip it around a winter's fire or pour it into a bowl for breakfast.
