“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

Tasted on tap at Chuck's. For my palate, this is as good as it gets. More subdued than some of the other imperial stouts I've tried tonight. But incredibly complex and perfectly balanced. Almonds and hazelnuts. Coffee and toffee. Milky smooth. Jesus this is great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very oaty... for alchol content more could be done. Much better Imperail stout exist out there. Easy drinking, thin head. dark mild beer very thick maybe to thick. I’ve had better in this realm.

_angst_ (2564) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2013
Bomber bought through Brill & Co. Pours viscous brownish black with a small frothy and fizzy mocha head that quickly dissipates while leaving a tiny trace on the glass. Smell is sweet with roasted malts, roasted cereal, oatmeal cookies, hay, wood, banana bread, alcohol, dark roast coffee, cocoa powder, toffee and hints of burnt caramel. Taste is sweet, bitter and tiny sour with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, oatmeal cookies, banana bread, burnt caramel, toffee, salty liquorice candy, dark chocolate and charred wood. Mouthfeel is smooth, silky and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and tiny sour with roasted malts, oatmeal cookies, banana bread, dark chocolate, sweetened dark roast coffee, burnt caramel and hints of salty liquorice candy. Smooth and pretty tasty…

Pours hazy dark mahogany with tan head, becomes a lacing with legs. Subdued chocolate nose. Very full bodied, rich smooth, almost syrupy chocolate sweetness, boozy warmth, rich roasted barley for a lingering finish. Some honey and increasingly alcohol forward as it warms and burnt toast.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 hints of caramel taste of chocolate malt. not as smooth tasting as i would expect with oatmeal. taste more like a strong abby than a stout to me.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2013 Keg. Black with a biege head. Big mouthfeel, potent rich oversweet coffee-ish up front with a dry finish. Good strong beer. ************ Keg again, half pint. Big pour. Same impression - syrupy coffee, soy.

22 ounce bottle for $7.99. Oily Irish coffee and grain with a splash of booze aroma. Pitch black, no light gets through, brown head, no lacing, no foam residue moments after the pour. Flavor is a strange medley of soy, coffee, umami, oats, alcohol. Palate is thick bodied, pungent taste to nose effect. Overall, this is a big shouldered, big daddy. Clear your schedule for the rest of the night, because this one takes time to polish off.

Finhead (1147) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2013
Dark brown with a small brown head. The aroma has a lot of chocolate with some light vanilla. It has a full, thick body with average carbonation. The taste is mostly bitter and roasted with a dry finish.
