We love the nautical design on this one, and the aroma is fantastic. Lots of chocolate, with some toffee and caramel sweetness coming through too. More chocolate on the taste, with some lovely bitter coffee notes. You still get that sweet caramel malt as well. A really well balanced stout, and not too heavy either. 

Brewery Info

The Basqueland Brewing Project is a new brewery created by three Americans living in San Sebastian who are dedicated to brewing beer on par with the Basque culinary experience. A lofty goal for some but not for Basqueland.

"We make our beer true-to-style for the refined palates of our adopted paisanos preaching the gospel of fresh beer whenever a beer bottle is not pressed to our lips. Drink fresh. Drink good. And for god’s sake, treat her like a lady."

Quite fizzy and not too flavourful unfortunately. Slightly smoky and burnt taste. There are much better beers you can get at this price.

Lovely on the nose - caramel truffles - but the taste doesn't live up to the smell. More carbonation than I like in a stout - it fizzes on the tongue, which spoils the mouthfeel and disrupts those lovely roasted notes which makes the style so appealing. Letting it settle for a while improved things.
More of a 3.5 to be fair...

Don't get me wrong this is a pretty decent oatmeal stout but perhaps all the rave reviews have over-egged it a little!
A few niggles: not enough body, lack of bite, and the oats make it so smooth it loses a little character along the way...
