10.4%ABV. Oatmeal Imperial Stout. Tapped out 40ºSRM. Nose is medicinal and has the aroma of lo Han go, Otherwise liquer blac cherries or brandies cherries come to mind, also rum raisins. More mundane deScriptors might include licorice, dark chocolate. For those in the know, this might have the nose of Pei pa ko, which is a medicinal syrup made from pipa which is a Chinese loquat. The slightly umami nose makes the impression of a freshly grilled unagi almost palpable: sweet, smoke, umami. The umami is most likely a function of the oatmeal which while not wheat is close enough... Mouthfeel is syrupy. This reminds me most of when I tasted the Abstakt 12. The palate can best be characterized as: coffee, hickory smoked bacon, charcoal briquets, honeyed dates, prunes, fresh ripe honey dates, burnt wheat toast. The slight umami makes squid ink pasta aaaalmost make sense. There is a certain heftiness to the palate which can only be attributed to the oatmeal-weighted grain bill. The finish is sweet and smoke. The most enduring flavor in the finish is closest to having a fresh honey date or a very ripe plum. There is that sweet but leavened by a ripe fruit fullness with all its ester-y funk and honey sweetness on the palate. Goes on Favorites List!

kran w jabeer. na szybko: mocno owocowy, lekko palony, rumowy (choc nie to, ze beczka, wanilia itp, ale raczej alkohol z wisniami na slodko?), gladki w ustach, jest tez kawa i czekolada choc nie dominuja. fajnie ulozony. bardzo relaksacyjnie wywazony - mozna bez problemu w wiekszych ilosciach.

Ernest (7029) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is opaque black (flashlight tested), bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted/burnt grain, unsweetened chocolate), with notes of nut shells / sherry / cardboard, alcohol, tar. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy/watery texture, soft/flat carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Dull and simple.

drpimento (2769) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Wow this is exemplary. The addition of oatmeal is exactly perfect for this recipe- rounding out the traditional harsh edges of the style. I can barely find a fault with this beer. I have a chronic sinus problem so I cant sniff so well, which is why my lower score there. What a beer. Dangerous. Yummmm.

Hanoi (709) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle. Nose is alcohol, licorice, vanilla, dark fruits, cherry, hint of cola. Taste heavy licorice, plums, booze, slight alcohol character, some dark fruits, hints of chocolate, and a lot of cherry and latte in the finish. The mouthfeel is too thin for the style. It’s a nice, by the numbers imperial stout, with more than a little imperial porter to it.

Yorker (1932) - Herning, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with some sediment and a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, cocoa, liquorice, and chocolate - with a roasted finish.

Moolesen (375) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Pitch black with a creamy brown head. Aroma with hints of chocolate, coffee and some yeast. Very intense taste, rich and full bodied. Well balanced with the hops, not too much, which makes it approaching for a bigger group. Long finish.
