Commercial Description

Black Mamba is a full bodied oatmeal stout that has tastes of toffee, chocolate, coffee, and smoothness from the addition of flaked oatmeal. We use generous amounts of crystal, black patent, roasted barley and chocolate malt which gives the stout a dark colour and a complex taste profile. The final step for Black Mamba is aging in the finest American bourbon barrels for several weeks

    [Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

    The pour was a murky opaque black with a large (2-3 finger) light tan frothy head that was mostly lasting, reducing slightly to a thick cap which lasted throughout and had good runny lacing.

    The aroma was of a roasted cereal malt and a heavy leathery yeast with notes of molasses, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and a mild odor of bourbon.

    The taste was bold and roasty with a nice malty feel and possessed hints of chocolate and molasses from the get go, and then became slightly bitter sweet with a strong coffee note and an alcohol presence that seemed stronger than the ABV that this brew possesses. The flavor lasted quite a long time after the swallow, with an alcohol espresso taste hanging out on the taste buds for a while longer.

    Mouthfeel was almost full in body with a creamy, dry texture and a very soft carbonation.

    Overall this was a very good rich Stout with a lot of flavor which did not take away from the alcohol taste one bit, making it a very enjoyable and easy brew to drink...
