Roasted malt (Chocolate and coffee flavors), not burnt (Little acidic / bitter taste, almost non-existant) with a sweetness (Toasted Oats?) that didn’t overpower. No alcohol flavor. No hop flavors per say. Found at H-E-B - Tech Ridge Center in Austin Texas. Will have to see if I can find it in the DFW area.

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.

Pours thick and dark, good head and good lacing. Excellent Stout, sweet strong roast. Some chocolate, some slighter coffee, tastes concentrated. Most excellent proud bold flavor. A great Imperial stout.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle… this beer rocks!… Pours tar black with a small, creamy, well-tanned head. Great retention. The aroma is a medley of toasted tree nuts alongside huge, rich mocha and a whisper of vanilla. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Roasty, toasty and mildly bitter. Deeply roasted finish. Excellent oatmeal stout. Kudos to ericandersnavy for shipping this world class beer to me!

Roasted chocolate nose. Black opaque color. Smooth velvet mouthfeel. Roast chocolate malt. Very balanced. Excellent

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.

A great beer. Very strong however. Poured into a snifter from bottle. Smells good but I am having trouble describing it. It is very dark with a dark tan, slim head. The taste is empowering. It has a strong, almost coffee taste to it. Good carbonation. A really good beer brewed close to my hometown. I am definitely going to enjoy this one slow though!

An extra in a trade: In terms of Oatmeal Stouts, this one is big and ballsy. The appearance is beautiful ... pitch black with mocha brown head ... taste is big as well .. surprise! Quite a large hop presence followed by the smooth pillowy texture to be expected by this style. Pleasantly surprised!

Man, I love this stout. Probably one the best in the state. Nice roasted malt and coffee aroma. Dark color that you can’t see through like a straight cup of coffee. Small maple head. Flavors are burnt toast, coffee and some bitter chocolate. Oily mouthfeel that coats your mouth. Well balanced with a nice alcohol undertone. Not all that easy to get yet, so pick one up if you see it.

Tap at Flying Saucer, Houston.
Pours black like a criminal’s heart with an aroma of fat, round chocolate bits swimming in coffee. Flavor is smooth and silky chocolate cocoa with coconut coffee and a slightly smoky finish. Velvety and thick mouthfeel. Wow. Great beer!
