Pours black with small tan head and good lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate and plum with some booziness. Taste of bitter chocolate with dark fruit and roastiness mid palate. A nuttiness and some coffee in finish. Medium/full body with moderate carbonation and semi dry finish. Good stout. ---Jeremy H

Cocoa and milk chocolate aroma from a black pour with about a finger of brown head. Cocoa up front followed by a roasty mid to back of the tongue with a sweet but booze finish.

Subtle coffee, subtle roasty, clings to the palate. Tiny bit of chocolate as it warms. It’s very well balanced.

This is awesome. Huge heavy full mouthfeel. Love it. Deep rich roasted sweet flavor which is balance nicely with a mild bitterness. Just flat out good.

Fritz123 (1260) - 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.

Weevo (65) - Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2015
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

Dr_Fellini (719) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2015
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 (5228) - 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 (160) - 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.
