DSG (8423) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[3/1/15] Draught at Reubenís Brews in Seattle. Black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, some chocolate and a bit of fruity notes. Bittersweet roasty flavor with coffee, chocolate and a bit of fruitiness. Rather full-bodied.

Ferris (7659) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Draft - Roasty chocolate. Deep jet black with a decent light brown head. Bitter roast malts and a long slick oatmeal finish. Not bad, but not as interesting as some of the others.

39 IBU. 02.03.14 bottle date. Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 06.26.14. A: Cocoa, oatmeal, vanilla. It smells balanced and reminds me of porridge. A: 2 finger tan head. Midnight black body with some red. T: Oatmeal, chocolate, cocoa, and fig dominate. Vanilla is subtle. P: Smooth as silk. The oats are at work. Nice bubbles on the back end. It is a bit thin. O: All of the flavor notes are balanced. This is one of the best oatmeal stouts that Iíve had so far. There is no roastiness that distracts from the oatmeal, chocolate, and vanilla flavors. The ABV is not crazy high, but itís hidden well all the same. It is so easy to drink that it feels like 5% ABV. Itís really a beautiful beer. The empty bottle is on my beer shrine.

Tap at the brewery - overly roasty, overly bitter, quite astrigent imperial stout - rough and hard to enjoy, really - very harsh finish - pass.

ACHops (957) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2014
On tap @ Reubenís. Pours inky black with thin dark mocha head. Aroma is faint medium dark chocolate malt, light sweet chocolate, and a bit of coffee on the back. Taste is super smooth creamy lightly roasty malt, coffee and bittersweet chocolate on the finish. Aroma and taste are a bit underwhelming here, but the body and mouthfeel on this are amazing.

(Tap) This is a great stout. Some astringency which is its biggest flaw. Slightly too bitter for my taste, but a great stout regardless.

At the brewery. Rich appearance and light head. This is just an excellent stout. Good balance of flavors.

adnielsen (10068) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap @ the brewery during 7/5/2014 Seattle beer tour. Pours an orangish brown appearance with a brown head. Definitely get the oats in the nose. Seems a bit sweet and chocolate-y. Flavor is a little twangy. Some plum and red grape notes. Dark chocolate. Pretty fruity. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. One of my last favorites here.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate light brown head on it. Nose is a little bit roasty with some oats and grains in there as well. Taste is roasty with a bit of coffee to it, but I donít get the chocolate that the description suggests. OK, but nothing amazing.
