Poured into a tulip glass. No foam at all. Small carmel colored ring forms around the edge. Color is black in the glass. No light comes through at all. The scent is roasted malt, dark chocolate and a little hop. Very nice. First sip while cold is intense coffee and chocolate. Smooth heavy mouthfeel with surprising carbonation. As it warms up you get a little more carmel sweetness in both the smell and taste. Still lots of dark chocolate. This is great beer. Definitely something to try if you haven’t.

Fritz123 (1228) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Draft at the tasting room. Pours a jet black with a mocha head. Aroma is rich roasted malts, caramel, dark chocolate, vanilla beans, and doughnut. The taste is solid with dark chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, slight caramel, and lactose. Almost like a malt milkshake with vanilla. Serious body, light carb. Chewy and good. One of the best oatmeal stouts out there.

Bottle, pours black with tan head. All the good things I expect from an oatmeal stout plus an unusual smoothness for a 60ibu beer. Chocolate, vanilla, oak and a nice roasted taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with a medium brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, burnt coffee, touch of cocoa. Flavor has a big burnt roasted malts bitterness. Huge mouthfeel, lingering roasted malts with some chocolate sweetness. Very tasty.

Cunningham (5163) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2015
Black as the night with a thich beige head. Nice lacing. Powerful aroma. Espresso, chocolate and licorice. Full body. Balanced sweetness vs bitterness. Soft carbonation. A bit oily. Heavu stuff this one. Espresso, toffee, licorice, roasted and chocolate. Power beer. Nothing I can drink a lot of. Nice evening sipper.

Turboninja (154) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Strong/medium aroma with licorice, vanilla and some malts. Pitch black with medium beige head. Strong taste with licorice, vanilla and cocoa, which is the distinctive part of this beer. Some malts can be tasted also. Very smooth and balanced. Wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with licorice, malts and some hops. Full body wit soft carbonation. Overall one of my favorite Imperial Stouts: top-notch performer with the twist.

Ez a béka sem szarral gurigázik, az biztos! Nagyon mély, keserű csokis, likőrös, fakormos, kissé fanyar, és igen erős íze van, testes, mint egy sumo birkózó. Szerintem zab nélkül szinte bántóan száraz és reszelős lenne, így pont jó!

M: Medium, oily body, some alcohol, soft carbonation. O: A dry bittersweet imperial oatmeal stout. Some really nice qualities for a day to day RIS.
