“brewed for the harvest” This beer begins in spring when oat seeds are sown as soon as the soil can be worked. Meanwhile, select types of barley are planted with hopes that Mother Nature will be kind. Our brewers wait patiently until the legumes are mature and ready for the scythe. Upon delivery to the brewery, these ingredients are mixed together in the mash tun where they steep, creating a rich molasses-like liquid. Spicy hops are boiled with the thick brew, giving balance and complexity. Brewers yeast feasts upon the rich sugars, concluding its transformation into oatmeal stout. Pour Oat into a snifter, allow its thick tan head to slowly rise, releasing unbridled aromas. The color of Oat is as dark as a moonless night. The first sip reveals Oat’s thick and nourishing taste. Like a haversack to a horse, a bottle of this stout is a meal in itself. Enjoy responsibly. 11.0% abv • 238º L

Thanks to pantanap for this beauty. Pours black with a thin brown head. The flavor and mouthfeel are creamy, chocolatey, wow. I absolutely loved it. The finish has a warming to it.

Thin dark brown head of dense creamy bubbles. Rich roasty aroma with lots of toasted grains, molasses, black cherry and some sweet malts. Color is a very dark brownish black. Thick and very full bodied. Sweet and malty with loads of roasted grains, molasses and chocolate. Not really bitter at all. Velvety smooth mouthfeel that is almost chewy. Noticable alcohol presence that makes the lips tingle and the gullet nice and warm. The oats are really present in the body and give this brew tons of mouthfel and character. Finishes thick and creamy and delicious. Lingering roastyness and alcohol. A great imperial stout!

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2009 Pours deep, dark brown with a small brown bubbly head. Strong aroma of semi-sweet chocolate, lactic sugars, light roasted coffee, and some piny/herbaceous hops. Sweet lactic and bitter chocolate flavors hit hard upfront like a bitter malted milk ball, then quickly recede into slightly bitter roasted coffee, and grassy/piny hops, but keeping up that sweetness as an undertone all the way through. Would’ve certainly pegged this for a milk stout if I didn’t know better. Palate is full, creamy, a bit grainy (like chocolate with high cocoa content), fairly sweet, and oily. That’s a damn fine impy stout that is sure is sure to drink nicely for years to come. Delicious.

Bomber - One of the best Imperial Stouts I have had to date. Pours a thick, murky, midnight black with a fluffy, lasting brown head. This beer is huge on both aroma and flavor. It is very sweet with a huge chocolatey malty flavor. As it warms the alcohol makes more of an appearance. The mouthfeel is thick and rich with almost an oily consistancy. Simply excellent.

Bottle. Aroma nothing really spectacular jumps out at me a light alcohol, oat and chocolate. Poures a nice swirling black with a dark chocolatey head. Flavor is just yummy, chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla. Palate is nice and full. Overall, I like this very much, may need more.

Bottle. As it pours out a thick blackish brown liquid, I think this could be good. The head forms slowly, so plan accordingly as you pour. Leave yourself a little room... 2 to 3 fingers’ worth of space for the khaki froth. Aromas are not that complex... milk chocolate, vanilla and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is very thick and syrupy... with a touch of heat from the alcohol. The first thing to know about the flavor is that it is very sweet... malty chocolate, vanilla and oats mix together and the whole thing borders on being just simply too much sweetness, but then in comes the alcoholic warmth and a little bit of a bitter note. Still, I’m not totally sold on the blending... could be a bit less sweet and I’d be happier. I may have to buy one and sit it in the cellar for a few years just to see what that would accomplish.

Bottle. Much better than I expected. A well done imperial stout with all the components you’d expect. A little unbalanced as far as sweetness goes, but solid none the less.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2008 bottle....aroma: lots of roasted malt and sweet chocolate and oats of course....appearance: black pour or very close to being black. little head which was tannish but not very long lasting.....taste: sweet, roasty, chocolate with little carbonation and medium/light body.....nothing revolutionary but a well done imperial stout.
