Pours a deep cola color with an almost non existent deep beige head atop.Aromas of charred dark fruit and mocha coffee.A complex palate with the charred dark fruit mixed with deep roasted mocha flavors,the alcohol comes in the finish but never gets to be to big.A nice mix of roast/char and sweetness going on,a nice night cap.

330ml bottle, a Double Oatmeal Stout. A contract brewery with an amusingly difficult name to pronounce - and what's with the 'best before 25 years' aging statement? Really?

This beer pours a solid, maybe less than abysmal, brown-tinted black, with subtle basal cola highlights, and a measly half finger of creamy, bubbly beige head, which leaves some weird moose antler lace around a portion of the glass as things slowly sink away.

It smells of musty cocoa nibs, toasted bready caramel malt, cream, gritty raw breakfast oats, mild earthy hops, and a touch of simmering alcohol. The taste is a nice blend of bittersweet chocolate and grainy caramel malt, supple cooked and cooled oatmeal, more earthy, floral, and slightly perfumed hops, and a twinge of metallic alcohol.

The carbonation is present, but rather innocuous, the body a middling (sorry) medium weight, fairly smooth, and generally quite creamy, the oatmeal not to be denied here. It finishes off-dry, the caramel and chalky cocoa still caught in a licit embrace, doing well to quell the burgeoning booziness.

A pleasant enough amped-up oatmeal stout - I'm just glad that as they rousted the alcohol, they didn't forget the oatmeal component. Enjoyable, as noted, and drinkable, if you focus more on the silken body, and not the bursting at the seams warming nature.

Enjoyed from the 12 oz bottle in a snifter, this nice double oatmeal stout pours a deep dark brown to the edges and black in the middle with a thin head, light retention, and light lacing. Nose of dark chocolate, sweet toffee, light coffee, and some licorice. flavors are sweet malts up front, light cloying sweetness, combined with a bitter dark chocolate and black licorice component that leaves a moderate bitterness to the back and aftertaste with decent alcohol warmth. Very coating mouth feel. Solid with light carbonation makes it a decent sipper in the stout world.

11.2 ounce bottle, bottled on 7 NOV 2013, label says best enjoyed within 2 years. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a 1/4 inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice, and some oats. The taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but there's also some vanilla, molasses and a bit of dark fruit noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. The 9.6% ABV of this brew is hidden well, it's enjoyable and easy to drink. I liked this brew, it's certainly worth a try if you've never had it before. $5.79 a bottle.

This bottle ended up being my BA review # 1000. In a hotel room in Rome out of a hotel glass.

Bottle date. 13/03/12

A - Black with a lot (3 fingers) of bubbly light brown head. A slight gusher.

S - Roast, sweet oatmeal, semi sweet chocolate.

T - A big bitterness up front that gives way to roast and char flavours. The mid-palate adds sweet oatmeal and chocolate. The finish has a touch of espresso and is long and bitter. ABV is slightly warming.

M - Medium body, light to moderate carbonation.

A: The beer is very dark brown in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dark tan head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and the sides of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Moderate aromas of caoco and roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of bitter dark chocolate along with hints of sweetness and bitterness.
M: It feels a little more than medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There are some hints of warming from the alcohol.
O: This beer hides its alcohol very well because you only really notice a little warming from it in the mouthfeel. It is really drinkable until the alcohol starts sneaking up on you.

330ml bottle –thanks to Juanjo for sharing this one-. ½ Pint glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Pitch black in color headed by light beige, small bubbled, froth. Good retention. Oats, dried coffee grains, roasted malts, hints of chocolate & subtle floral fragancy to the nose. Bitter/sweet fudge chocolate & underlying bitterness flow together into a long bitter finish with slightly citric touch. Full body, moderate carbonation. Velvet, creamy, palate. Pleasant & delightful. A 9.6 ABV beer ?? Come on…!!

Thanks to Jeffo for hooking me up with several of these! Dark brown, nearly black pour with a two finger caramel-colored head with decent retention and great lacing. Nice roasty nose with hints of cocoa, dark chocolate, subtle espresso, and oats. The taste is roasty as well with hints of cocoa, dark chocolate, espresso, molasses, oats, and a touch of vanilla. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly thick, with a subtle creaminess and a great dry bitter finish. Overall, this is a really solid offering that is crazy drinkable for an almost 10% beer. Hope these new guys keep up their stellar work!
