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.

Jet black pour, nothing more than a ring of tan fuzz, no real head. Nose is espresso and mild coco. Bittersweet. Middle is coffee grounds, dark malt, chalky chocolate. Finish is bitter, a little boozy.

Nice looking brown black with a tan head. It's chocolate and coffee but not a ton. Very mild and boring, but the alcohol is well hidden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Goodgrief (1965) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 24, 2016
On tap at Hyatt Regency Austin. Dark pour, thin head. Aroma was chocolatey. The flavor was carbonated roast. Not a lot of sweetness or other flavor. Kind of bland...and slightly overcarbonated. Had a bitter finish. It wasn’t great. I never would have guessed it was "imperial" anything.

BelgianBeerGal (3671) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle from Bearded Monk on the way up to WF. Very dark brown color with a big brown head that lasts forever. Aroma is dark malt and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is roasted malt with a hint of minerals and the oatmeal gives it a fuller mouthfeel. A little coffee bitterness in the dry, lingering finish. Pleasant.

(Bouteille): Popsicle bleu, vapeur d’anis et vanille dans un ensemble très moelleux et moyennement sucré. Très bon.

stevoj (3608) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 8, 2016
On tap at Zax. Short lived creamy head, but leaves curtains of lacing. Ruby tinged body, biting roast grains in both aroma and taste. Lingering dark chocolate on the palate. Comes off mild, but this is pretty big.

Very nice smoky flavor with a smooth body and nice finish. Creamy had that lasts through several drinks.

12oz bottle from sudsmcduff! Pours pretty much black with a small creamy dark tan head. Aroma of chocolate and black malts, burnt brownies, and hints of vanilla. Taste of coffee grounds, burnt chocolate, earth, and a hint of burnt sugar sweetness in the finish.

PorterPounder (6977) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2015
San Antonio, Tx - Total Wine & More - 12 oz bottle. Rich, deep dark sable black pour with a tight mocha colored head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has some nice chocolaty undertones, some Kahlua notes, a touch of black coffee. Flavor has a similar profile, some black licorice is prominent, heavy cocoa notes, a touch of espresso in the finish. Nice thick oily mouthfeel. Pretty solid Impy.

Bottle from gregwilsonstl, thanks for the opportunity! Solid black color with a smallish off white head. Roasty, earthy, cereal grain, light smoke and burnt sugar weigh heavy on the nose. Thick viscous creamy mouthfeel with a touch if alcohol. Light sweet brown sugary malt flavor with plenty of molasses, roast, and dark caramel. Light dark pitted fruit flavor with hints of ethanol and a light graininess. Medium to full body with a light level of carbonation. Huge big thick stout, I wasn’t quite expecting that from the oatmeal stout on the label, but very nice sipper on this cool fall night.
