bottle. jet black pour with a huge thick brown head that slowly dissipated. aroma of coffee, roasted malts and some spice (light cinnamon maybe). flavors of burnt caramel and coffee. sweet malts balance things - but the bitterness is long and even - tough to explain, but somehow different than similar minded stouts I’ve had. the texture is thick and slightly chalky on the finish. If I were a wealthy alcoholic, this would definitely be my drink of choice in the morning. K-8.5

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Bottle two year aged: Pours a hefty dark black thick with a dark tan head. Aroma is quite complex with sweet malt, coffee, high roasted malt, oats, chocolate. Flavors are the same but very well blended. Extremely smooth mouth feel due to the oats. I’m a fan of the style for sure. They say this goes well with breakfast but I think it IS a breakfast!

BrewCzar (108) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Bottle pours black with a big brown head. Aroma is distinctly coffee with hints of sweet roasted malts. The taste has a strong coffee/espresso presence with hints of roasted caramel and chocolate malts.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2008
pours a dark black with a very thick creamy brown head. Aroma is nice chocolately roast malt. some coffee, and sweet oatmeal tones. hop bitterness pushiing through... Flavour is burnt malt bitterness, dark roast coffee. Nice sharp bitterness in the finish. Obviously I like the hop combined with the dark roast coffee biterness and a creamy oatmeal undertones.

The deep coffee flavor is strongly accented with burnt fruit wood, with all kinds of grains and malts mixed in. I love that there is also a balanced amount of bitters from what I suppose to be a goodly amount of hops. Even a dryish finish. I need to put up a bit of this for when friends are over.

1 pint 0.9 oz bottle: Wonderful thick rich malty aroma at first, some grapefruit hop characteristics poking through, and an oatmeal and coffee note intermingled throughout. Appearance is deep dark black with a thick tan head that lingers. Taste is roasted malts, dark coffee, oats, with a slight hop twang at the end that makes this brew really interesting. In the aftertaste it’s malty on the tongue with a lingering coffee bitterness. Overall, Pretty darn good stuff in my honest opinion. A little pricey but it is a quality beer all around. Cheers!

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 very sharp start unlike anything ive had in a stout, almost astringent. after the hops subside, the oats kick in for a smooth finish, but one that is shortlived. this doesnt have the decadent, luxurious feel that most oatmeal stouts provide. mouthfeel is atypical and not silky at all, color is dark as the grim reapers cloak. maximum coffee and minimum chocolate, nearly acidic. booze is not hidden, its at the forefront surprisingly. many oatmeal stouts are only comforting but this is truly challenging.

Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2009 Feb 15/07 50cl bottle bot from Russell & Roland. LCBO claims 5.5% alc/vol. Aroma is deep roasted choco espresso. Dark brown with big thick foamy espresso head that eventually thins. Thick bitter vanilla choco roasted espesso but lacking in flavour. Lasting bitter coffee choco after-taste. I had rated this from an earlier batch as 4.5 but this case is no where near as good unfortunately. Wondering if it’s gone bad. Very disappointing. Not worth the price.
