BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Blackened browned body, with a chocolate top. Roast coffee nose along with some sweetness to it. Sweetened coffee malt body that tends toward thinnish for an oatmeal stout, let alone an imperial oatmeal stout. Decent flavors, but a bit lacking in mouthfeel.

Prufrockstar (693) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Bomber at home. Aroma is bittersweet/dark chocolate, coffee, roast. Pours deep dark brown with frothy tan head, irregular lacing. Smooth and creamy texture. Taste doesnít hit you over the head with anything, but is well-crafted and balanced. Chocolate is big, with just a hint of sweetness that is immediately balanced by roast, light coffee bitterness. Some dark fruit lurking in the corners. Medium-full body, average carbonation. Overall: Nice. This isnít built to run up against the big bad imps out there, but it doesnít have to -- itís refreshing to have a nicely crafted "imperial" beer that doesnít assert itself by shouting, but rather by just being well put together, balanced and reserved.

On the light side for an imperial. Deep, dark brown. Nice and smooth though - with a good carb to keep it lively. Mellow flavor, brown sugar and roasty chocolate. Super drinkable for an impy stout. Like it a lot!

after4ever (5940) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours jet black with a scant tan head. Big roasty salty soy nose with a bit of baking chocolate. Creamy thick silky body. Roasty toasty dark chocolate soy mid palate.

CampesinoTino (726) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Bomber. Pitch black pour with a dense layer of light brown foam. Aroma is a blend of roast malt, chocolate and caramel. Flavor offers up bittersweet chocolate, coffee and roasted malt with a bit of vanilla and citrus in the finish. Rich, smooth and creamy as promised.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Nose of chocolate coffee some dark fruit earth oat. Almost black pour thin tan foam ring. Flavors of roast coffee oat sweetness caramel and tangy dark fruit. Dry roasty coffee finish. Nice carbonation not oily or syrupy full body. A little smoke shows up in the end. Its ok, i like comic books, star wars, and shopping on black friday too. Fuck off.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Sample at Haleís in Seattle. Brownish-black pour with a medium beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium body with a roasty character and flavors of dark chocolate, coffee and malt. The finish is dry with a roast malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

BEENJAMIN (288) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2014
22oz bottle pours black with a frothy tan head. Oats, grain, shaved chocolate arounds out a subdued aroma. Flavor and texture are the real game changers for this stout. Loads of chocolate, very milky mocha like, coffee after notes, roasted barley, and a heavy weight creamy mouthfeel. The finish is dry and oaty very well balance, the ABV is hidden and each sip leaves me wanting more. I really enjoyed this smooth stout and would go back for another in a heart beat.

luttonm (2072) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JAN 19, 2014
Draft at Reubenís brewpub in Ballard. Good dark brown, solid. Nutty toasty grain aroma, solid sipper. Warming grains and a nice licorice-coffee bitter.
