On cask at the Bon Accord in Glasgow. Not sure what it is about this place, but beer always tastes better here. Pours near black with a thin (cask pour) and very creamy head that leaves a film coating everything. Nose is smooth cream coffee with some milk chocolate. Taste is so smooth and creamy with light roasted flavors and coffee that are very much softened by the lactose. The kind of beer that is much better on cask and at cellar temp. Very good and the best Williams Bros beer I've had.

Bottle into tulip glass.

A revisit. Tried this one last autumn and was pretty unimpressed but glad I've given it another chance. May be that my tastes have changed but more likely just in the right mood this time.

Looks the business with a fairly dense and robust head. Smells very tame when straight out of the fridge but opened up really nicely after half an hour or so. Typical malt and coffee aromas and a hint of something spicy/sweet that I can't put my finger on. Really enjoyed the second half of this once it had come to life a bit. Good beer and great value. Tidy stuff.

Deep black color with a thick thin caramel head with medium retention.
Predominant aroma with notes of roasted coffee beans, licorice, cream and mild orange zest.
Flavor with notes of coffee, more earthy than nutty, just a bit of caramel, mild lactic acid and citrus fruit peel on the background. Dry after taste with a mild hop bitterness.
Light towards medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Laidback and satisfying Oatmeal Stout, flavorful but not too roasted with coffee predominating and other background flavors giving a mild twist.

Definitely not a meme stout!

Rich and heavy. Tastes of smoky dark chocolate, caramel and with floral tones that remind me of Turkish Delight. Kev would be proud.
