COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oatmeal coffee stout. This is a full-bodied beer full of roasty malts and coffee flavors. On pour it’s a deep, opaque brown with a creamy mocha head. The nose is all fresh coffee with a touch of chocolate, sweet cream and malt. Tasting up front you get the bitterness of fresh medium roast coffee balanced with a malty sweetness. The mouthfeel is full and smooth, almost a meal in itself. The finish is a touch of hop citrus and coffee; refreshing like an iced beverage on a hot August morning.

Nitro at Barrel Republic. Pours dark brown with a creamy beige and lots of lacing. Smells like fresh roasted dark coffee, burnt toast, burnt malt. Tastes like dark coffee, booze, light spice, dry roasted malt.

Sampled at the brewery on 3/21/2013. This Imperial Oatmeal Stout pours a dark amber drown color from the tap. Small to medium sized white/tan foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasty malts. A medium to full bodied stout. The malts are roasty, chocolate and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Hint of sweet chocolate at the finish. Nice fuller oatmeal mouthfeel. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Big sweet malts and sweet espresso coffee, cream, chocolate, and lightly roasted malts. Maybe just a hint to sweet for some folks, but I found it very drinkable.

On tap at O’Brien’s. Way too dry, though looks great lace sheet. OK, but not a fan of dry stout, you would think oatmeal would enhance it.
