A big ol’ black beer with oatmeal silkiness. Full bodied with soothingly rich coffee flavors. Devilishly delicious. Classified as an Imperial Oatmeal Coffee Porter

Pours like coffee, smells like coffee--enough that it woke me up after a hard day! Oil black with a thick but dissipating tan head. Thick and full-bodied on the tongue with a coffee bitterness. Coffee flavor almost (but not quite) overwhelms oatmeal flavors. This is thick and creamy and delicious. The finish is very smooth. Porters don’t get much better than this!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Bottle thanks to the special Ross. And by special, I mean retarded. Pours an oil black with frothy brown head. Aroma is packed full of dry roast coffee and burnt malts. Medium-full bodied with a fine carbonation and a smooth velvety texture. Flavor of coffee, dark unsweetened bakers chocolate, and oats.Sweetness is restrained here. Mid palate has a moderate bitterness, along with some woody notes. Finish is semi dry and slightly astringent. A peppery bitterness lingers. Nicely done.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 5, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color. Nearly opaque with red highlights. Head was thick and tan with good retention. There was some tattered lace left on the glass at the end. Subdued aroma of roasty malt and coffee. Delicately sweet with minimal roastiness. There was no appreciable bitterness. Tasted of milk chocolate and light coffee. Medium bodied and fairly smooth. Decent, but a bit overrated I think (99th percentile the day I rated it).

thedm (5776) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 3, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of fine to medium sized dark brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a opaque no visible carbonation black colored body. The nice aroma was malty brown malt and dark malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt mild hops dark malt brown malt and coffee. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Poured an opaque black. Minimal head, no retention. Aroma of roasted espresso beans and chocolate. Palate was of roasted coffee and a lot of good roasted malty character with not a whole lot of hop finish. Aftertaste was left slightly bitter from the malts. A pretty good porter.

12oz bottle from either Wife or Mother-in-law ended up with six of them. Oatmeal oats and coffee aroma. Body was black with dark tan head, spotty lacing. Milky body texture with coffee as the main flavor. Smooth on the palate yes whih I had more.

Black, with a touch of red around the edges. Nice, big dense brown head. Big coffee aroma, and huge coffee flavor, too. Smoooth and sweetish notes, too. Very easy to drink, as well. Thanks to Buckybeer for the trade!
