COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Oatmeal Stout

This unique ale merges the smooth and complex richness of an Oatmeal Stout with the assertive hoppiness of Imperial Stout. Fat Dog has an inviting silky-black color, a prominent roasted malt character, and a chocolatey, coffee-like finish.

kerenmk (2612) - Tel Aviv, - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at our place. Pours really black with tan head. Roast, some coffee and cotton candy aroma. Bitter, roasty, rich and a little dry taste. Medium to full body, roasty finish.

bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Opaque black/brown color, bubbly beige rim head, dots and blobs of lace. Taste is chewy toasted malt that grows into the palate, adding medium hops. On the swallow the malt re-enters, becoming sweeter as it lingers in a medium finish. Recommended.

APPEARANCE - classic stout w nice head. NOSE - roasty when it warms. Very slight sweetness to it. FLAVOR – deep and roasted with slight bitterness. NOTES - overall good beer. MUCH different out of the cooler & when it warms up – it’s a much more probouned than many other stouts.

NikkTwist (1746) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle at Bierstube in Philly. Opaque brown pour with minimal head - from what started as a nearly frozen bottle. Warmed up to a nice complex dark caramel brew. Medium-thick. Liquorice. Chocolate Twizlers. Ripe figs. Brown bananas. Carob. Raisins. Nice cloudy dark full brew with notes of red brown stone fruit. Works for me.

scotchzombie (367) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Pours dark brown with a short tan head that fades fast to a thick rim and partial coating. Some wet lacing. Aroma is cocoa malt and oatmeal. Thick and viscous mouthfeel. Taste is cocoa/baked chocolate and oatmeal. Sweetness balanced by a backing mild bitterness and lingers a bit. Aftertaste is roasted malt and oatmeal - and a hint of bitterness. Alcohol pretty well-disguised.

Black with a decent off-while to tan head. Aroma roasty and chocolaty, dark fruit, ash, coffee, bitter chocolate again. Taste full and roasty, butter chocolate, not very sweet, quite smooth. Roast and espresso finish, with warming alcohol in stomach. Nice.

2009 batch from Cory in OH. outside of the aroma, this was a super nice beer. the aroma was flat and boring, but the beer was SUPER smooth. the flavor of roasted oats and coffee would make this a good breakfast beer, with a nice semi-sweet finish. "

Extra from trade. Deep black with foamy head and light lacing, some brown translucent edges. Nose of dark malts, some coffee and chocolate. Medium to full body, hefty for an oatmeal stout. Really rich dark chocolate finish with light sweetness. Really well done.
