A-Moka brown head, ultra dark brown body
S-Nice oat and chocolate aroma, with a subtle funky note
M-Light watery mouthfeel and medium to high carbonation
T-Sweetness upfront with a weak flavour of roasted and chocolate notes. A bitter finish balanced this beer out.
O-The bottle I drank was about one year old, bottled January 2016. It came out very heavily carbonated. A nice Stout, - little too sweet and watery for me, but quite drinkable

Opaque dark brown color, faint creamy 3 finger beige head, lasting around 5 minutes, but making a good amount of lacing. Flavors of chocolate, coffee, molasses, dark malts, walnuts, herbal spices, and got some oatmeal. Heavily sugary, but quite tender and well spiced. Slick and smooth full body with the perfect amount of sharp carbonation. Medium strength finish, ending with an earthy feel of roasted grains, toffee, and mocha. Overall excellent quality craft. Satisfying, filling, and pleasantly flavored. Very tasty and fresh. I really like the balance and the accessibility. Well represented style.

This beer is getting a 4 across the board from me, Its a really good beer but not in the 4.5 range.

Appearance - This beer pours black with 1 finger off white head, no light gets through at all. the head fades leaving no lace.

Aroma - Coffee, oatmeal, roasted malts, dark chocolate. basicly everything you would expect from the style.

Taste - The flavor profile is on point for the style too. Coffee, dark chocolate, oatmeal, roasted grains, some nutty flavor.

Feel - full body, you could almost call it chewy. there is a strong prickly carbonation, and a coffee bitterness that lingers on the tongue.

Overall - Like I said at the top this is 4 across the board. Everything is on point for the style and this is a very good beer, but nothing makes it stand out from the rest. Cheers!

Bottle: Poured a clear black color stout with a nice large brown foamy head with great retention and some lacing. Aroma of black chocolate notes with light roasted malt notes is quite pleasant. Taste is a nice mix between some black chocolate notes with some light roasted grain notes with some residual sugar notes that are still noticeable. Well brewed for the style and very nice level of drinkability.

No date. Like my last Le Castor beer, a lot lighter in colour than expected, but that's a minor detail. Lots of roastiness. Light/medium bodied. Overall a nice drinkable Oatmeal stout that goes well with a chocolate cupcake (in my case), but probably better paired with a burger.
