12oz bottle into my Westmalle goblet. Awesome name and bottle, looking cool...Dark brown pour with light carbonation, disappointing for an oatmeal, love to see this on tap...An alluring sweet aroma, surprised at the sweet chocolate, vanilla, and oats coming through without alcohol on this 8.5% beer. Vanilla really shows more than anything, really nice...The taste bores me, most of the sweetness is gone leaving a plain stout with a little roastiness creeping in. Not bad, just boring, however at the abv super easy to drink.

Bottle:   Yep, thats black, large pillowy tannish head, looks like rising dough, fairly nice lacing.   Bakers chocolate, oatmeal, slight fig/date, and some lactose.   Hefty roasted malts, oatish, semi-sweet, faint appleskin, with a touch of dark pitted fruit and dark chocolate.   Pretty tasty this is!   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Finish yields a lot of roasted malts, very slight tartness, some immature dark pitted fruit, and dark chocolate.   Oh, lets not forget about the Imperial Oatmeal!   Thanks Bill for this welcome surprise!

I have never had an imperial oatmeal stout before. It is roasty and smoky but still is smooth as if it were 5 or 6% abv.

Bottled. Poured rich, murky brown with a fine cap of dark tan head.. set up nicely in the glass! The aroma picked up burnt black patent and coffee malts upfront, with sweeter rolled oats on the back.. greener hops and a touch of alcohol accented.. not the greatest malt bill, but it was warm and welcoming. The flavor found more of the oats and sweeter chocolates at the core, with coffee sweetness and bitterness around the edges.. peppery alcohol around there too.. a tad green again on the back. Heavier-bodied and a little on the tangy side on the palate (considering it was an oatmeal stout).. it was a solid drinker, but I wanted more smoothness.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2012 Thick, oily, and pitch black with a thick, filmy brown head. Aroma of chocolate, oatmeal, alcohol, coffee, vanilla and ash. It tastes a little like smoked chocolate. Rich; sweet and slightly bitter, and the alcohol comes through just a bit. Body is smooth and creamy, thick, and very softly carbonated. Finishes slightly dry, warming, and smokey. Very nice.

Pours solid black with faint red hues and a small brown head. Smells like dark malts, faint oatiness, and sweet alcohol. Tastes like faint chocolate, a little like cereal (in a nice stout way), and and subtle alcohol notes. Full-bodied with a rich, roasted texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Independence Brewiong Convict Hill Imperial Oatmeal Stout finishes smooth and creamy with a slight alcohol tingle.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of fata2683 - Pours a dark, dark brown color with a 1/2 finger thick tan head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Finish is a little dry and the roasted malt lingers a tad. Medium body. A very good beer. Thanks Keith.

12oz bottle. Bottle nearly explodes upon opening and yields a gusher with dark tan bubbles streaming out of the bottle. Body is almost completely black and the enormous head finally settles done leaving good lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, cocoa powder and a ton of bubbles that fizz in the nose. Bit of coffee and oatmeal. The taste is also very sweet with cocoa and oatmeal up front with a chalky dark chocolate texture. The mouthfeel is crazy, crazy carbonated with tons of bubbles and medium bodied...i think, because the amount of bubbles makes it seem lighter than air. This beer is certainly over carbonated and i was worried it might be infected, but i didn’t really get an infection. That said, the carbonation is distracting and takes away from the beer a bit.
