Nice beer. Alcohol is hidden well. Not marked on the bottle and no mention of "Imperial". Great mouth and body. Chocolate malts and creaminess. Pours black with lasting tan head.

Via trade with Blutt59. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, roast. The appearance is jet black, light tan head. The The flavor is chocolate, molasses, less roasty. The finish is roast, sweet, light alcohol, light hop bitterness. Medium/thick in body. Very good. Thanks, Bob.

Bittersweet coffee and slight cocoa along with a light chewy oatmeal backbone make this a somewhat unique and complex drink. Surprisingly well done although it was a bit of a foamy mess coming out of the bottle. Aroma is mostly oatmeal and grain, a little bit of dark fruit in there. Full bodied. Long lasting with the bittersweet coffee finish lasting in your mouth for a decent amount of time.

4-pack from a Walgreens in Austin. Dark pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted, a little chocolate, and coffee. Taste is coffee, lots of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and smooth.

(12oz bottle courtesy of BgThang!!). Pours black with thin khaki head. Aroma has milk chocolate, dark berries, and caramel. Taste is roasty bitter with a sweet malt backbone. Medium bodied with an oliy texture. Bitter finish. A very good beer that would be great if it completely lived up to its aroma.

Thanks to BarZigKin for the bottle, pours thick black with a medium tan head. Aroma is awesome, dark cocoa, rolled oats, coffee, molassis and dark fruits. Flavor is rich roast, thick coffee coats the tongue and a rich dry and semi-sweet molassis rounds out dry. Really lingers with dark fruits and heavy roast. This is top notch and I wish I had more!

Looks almost like motor oil pouring from the bottle. Tan head dissipates quickly. Chocolate and roasted malt aromas with a more of the oatmeal coming through in the mouth. Smooth and creamy. Good stuff.

Deep black pour from bottle with a thin tan head. Aroma is coffee and booze. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, grass and booze. Warm finish. Solid OS.

Roasted coffee notes pleasantly permeated my nostrils, accompanied by a lingering alcohol presence. Black with amber halo when held up to the light. Cream-colored head dissipates rapidly after the pour. Medium sweet taste that is accompanied by bitter notes. Pleasant medium body with an oily texture. 0% carbonation. Bitter sweet, well balanced finish. Not my favorite oatmeal stout, but pleasant nonetheless.
