Imperial Oatmeal Porter brewed with coffee beans and aged in bourbon barrels

Exceptional BA Imperial Porter. Has a creamy mouthfeel - stays light whilst pouring almost as a dessert style beer. Aroma is vanilla bean and mocha. An outstanding beer with chewy oats and a warm bourbon barrel afterglow. This is excellent, from the opening of the bottle to the last sip.

This puppy is a full dessert. Thick black pour from draft at farmhouse in Evanston. Huge toffee and Carmel aroma. Scotch smell too. Taste is massive. Coffee, chocolate, toffee and milky. Love this one. Haven't liked many other from this brewery. Score

Pre-DLD bottle share at Hampton Inn. Pour is deep brown with a small beige head. Aroma and flavor of bakers chocolate, roasted malt, coffee grounds, and slight bourbon warmth. Finish is bourbon and chocolate malt.

Pours dark with a whisp of tan head. Aroma of black coffee, vanilla beans, and roast. Taste of fresh brewed coffee, vanilla, oatmeal, and just the right amount of barrel. Good brew.

Bottle shared thanks to beerman6686. Nice to break up the barleywines with this one. Pours a dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is huge black coffee. None of that green pepper stuff. Taste is slightly sweet up front but finishes on the dry side and bitter. Not a ton of barrel spirits come past the coffee even with the 60% blend.

Leveejr (109) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Great smelling beer with a wonderful coffee, chocolate and slight bourbon taste. Only complaint is that it poured completely flat and gave it a weird mouthfeel. Otherwise great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

draft. An imperial porter that really retains its coffee characterl despite the barrel aging.

Dark brown body spews handsome tan head. Decadent chocolate & roasty aroma bleeds onto the palate. Barrels massage the overall profile just enough to introduce themselves without stealing the spotlight. Creamy oatmeal body pairs nicely.

Quite impressive overall. Dare I say I prefer this to Breakfast Stout?!

Aroma of coffee and a little smoke. Small dark tan head. Great complexity of chocolate coffee and bourbon. Medium mouthfeel. Amazing beer.

Nsanders (638) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. Deep brown with a tan ring. Vanilla, oatmeal, roasted malt, bourbon and oak. Taste is malty sweet with an alcohol aftertaste. Body is heavier with an oily feel
