On tap at Unoís Hamilton during Philly Beer Week. Rich smooth creamy and a nice mellow roast. Not sure if it was strong enough to qualify for the Big Wood Event, but I guess one of them had to be below 11% LOL

pours inch high tan puffy head, dark brown in color completely opaque, aroma contains subtle hint of both chocolate and vanilla extract with undertones of coffee and toffee. Taste has strong hints of coffee at first an finishes with an exquisite chocolate and vanilla blend witch lingers on your tongue for a long time.

Very light tasting actually. It tastes like a less impactful/alcohol imperial stout. Smoother than heavier imp stouts and easier to drink. If you were to water down something like a wake up dead, it would get you here. It's still quite good, just not amazing or all that unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not that anything is wrong here, and Iím a pretty gracious reviewer, but I wasnít impressed. If youíre gonna throw on a bunch of modifiers then please back it up. Oak-aged, oatmeal, imperial (I could be wrong about that one) all on a stout? The bar is too high, and too specific, to register accurately. Itís like giving your child the name "William Deshawn John Isaiah Livingston Anatoly McSmithersky-Papabingian" - itís just too much name for anyone to handle.

(bomber) Pours a cloudy black color. Sweet malt aroma with hints of cocoa. Alcoholic and slightly dry texture, average carbonation, long duration, moderately sweet finish.

Bomber. Pours black with a loose tan head. Aroma is of cold black coffee with a very subtle sour off-note. Flavor comes on with a head full of smoke, toasted wood, coffee, and a strage fruity ester. Bitter hop finish with a hint of alcohol. Medium-bodied, maybe a little on the light side for a beer whose name implies "Imperial Stout". Altogether itís a beer that looks like a stout, feels like a stout, but smells and tastes like an experiment with stout.

Just a kiss of oak adds to the roasty sweet medium body. Smooth, but bitter enough to wake up your taste buds. Nicely done stout.

Looks delicious! black, light tan head, amber around the edges when held to light. Smells roasty and chocolaty.fells smooth and silky in the mouth like an oatmeal stout should. tastes good much like it smells but the way it feels in the mouth is where its at. Only problem needs more booze.
