MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - FEB 2, 2008
dark tawny/light brown thin creamy head, blackish brown body. aroma is coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, and some prune. maybe a little vanilla in the aroma too. flavor starts bitter roasted malt, then some baking chocolate and hoppy bitterness. very low alcohol heat, just a bit warming in the finish. malt is a bit sweet & chocolatey in the middle. sweeter malt finish too. thanks Dickinsonbeer for this as a generous gift!

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2008 Draft at HDG. The flavor has burnt licorice, cherry, piney hops, coffee and roasty malts. Mouthfeel is smooth. Much better in the bottle.

37steel (186) - St. Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2008
22 oz bottle. Dark black with a thin tan head. Aroma was very roasty. Smooth drinking, hid the alcohol well behind roasty / coffee flavors. Really good.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2008
UPDATED: APR 6, 2009 There is a slight taste of oatmeal and coffee on the backend, but the main flavor is pretty average for an IS.Alcohol% is only 9.4, but this brew burned all the way down. Almost no aroma, and the appearance looked like, welllight brown water. My drinking partner really liked this, so it was probably just me, but I got bored with this about half way through.

Had a bomber of this and liked it for a while. I soon became tired of it about halfway through as the flavor didn’t really develop. Definitely not a traditional oatmeal stout.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Pours jet black and thick, with a thin brown head that fades pretty quickly. Not a huge nose on this one. Roasty, dark malts and a bit of chocolate/coffee. Tastes of chocolate up front, coffee on the finish. Toasty, roasty throughout. Thickish but smooth. Nice carbonation. Great Imperial Stout, you might get sick of all that flavor after a while, but it’s good.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2008
Pours a pitch black color with a thin brown head. Superb aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malt and toasted bread. Excellent flavor of milk chocolate, roasted malt, toasted bread and bitterness in the end. The body is medium with a liquorous texture and moderate carbonation.
