COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold and complex from a tremendous amount of roasted malts, yet smooth and rich from the addition of oats. Dissent has its own opinion of what a dark beer should be.

Bottle to snifter. Pours dark brown black with a tight soapy tan head that fades to a collar ( pour looks like many Imperials). Aroma is big roasted malt with coffee and chocolate soy scents. Taste is roasted malt and coffee with a milky bitter chocolate and some rye bread and soy. Palate is full and bitter with a slick chaulky dry finish. Pretty awesome stout! Really gets me excited for Imperial versions!

Bottle courtesy of Atom. Bottle pours almost black with a thin tan head. THe aroma is malty, with cookie dough, chocolate, and slight coffee presence. Flavor hampered by being drank back to back with the Marshal Zhukov, but this is a different beast. Drinkable, with the oats giving it an easy drinking finish. Nice stout indeed.

Stine (1490) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Syrupy black pour that shines ruby around the edges and retains a mocha like foam. A heavy, detailed aroma; at times, bright and fruity, and at others dark and intense. Richly spicy and earthy with coffee, cinnamon and gingerbread; lots of candied and overripe red fruits. Slow to emerge, composed, and made interesting by its abundance of yeast and hop presence.

Strongly vinous flavor; cherries, raspberries and figs work with a big, bright citrus hop note that really stands out. There’s plenty of velvety dark malt laying calmly beneath.

Medium, fairly effervescent texture; easy to drink. A lot unfolds at the finish; rich raisiny cavendish tones give way to an awesomely meaty, smokey roast flavor, long after swallowing. A winningly unusual take.

arkurzynski (1487) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottles thanks to portableparty. Deep black with soft mocha head. Great roast aroma with hints of bakers chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Ultra smooth roasted malt and coffee that ends just slightly acidic and with mild dark fruit. Velvety and delicious. Lingering bitter chocolate roast.

Bottle from Zipps, Nice dark brown nearing black pour nose is roasty and malty, body is a bit thin which surprises me given the oat addition, a good solid beer glad to see Steel Toe doing their thing.
