coffee, nuts, roasty, black, minimal head, medium bitterness, light sweetness, medium body, creamy. Strong nutty coffee aroma. Immediate bitterness upon tasting, but the sweetness lingers. Seems to improve as you drink it. Surprised by this.

Imperial oatmeal stout de 7 % abv, ce qui est un peu djeuste … Attention on brasse ici en organique, par peur des grands vents d’hiver …(Inverness) Mon exemplaire était à 8 mois avant sa date. Couleur noire à reflets marrons, et à l’opacité forte. Mousse brun moyen, très épaisse, avec des cratères en haut, stable à 6 mm. Arômes de café, chocolat, malt torréfié, bois (organique). 1ère bouche souple, à la belle entame café/chocolat/ganache. Arrière-bouche sur du moka, longue. 2ème aux belles saveurs, café et fève de cacao. Arrière-bouche en harmonie, avec des rétro-nez bien café. 3ème à la belle suite, quoique moins ample. Arrière-bouche jolie. Longueur agréable, mais elle manque d’ampleur. Jambes fines, longues. Levure douce, fine, belle ligne. Alcool : c’est le point faible de cette bière, il est trop juste et pénalise la longueur. Finale qui est dès lors sous son potentiel … CONCLUSION : une bière qui est une sorte de comble pour l’Ecosse, qui ne manque pourtant pas d’alcool .. Elle est trop faible, et ne permet pas de pousser les saveurs à leur développement maximum. Organique peut-être, mais à quoi bon ? (8/5/8/3/16)

Keg at Black Isle Bar. Inverness. Pours pitch black with medium off white head. Big aroma of chocolate, oak, coffee, dried fruits and licorice. Taste is quiet sweet, with chocolate and prune and oak. Some porridge taste as well on the palate. Moderate hop bitterness but suitable for the style. Roast malts and some hop on the aftertaste. Alcohol is carried well but provides a nice lift. Overall a great example of an oatmeal stout.

vinivini (2410) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 13, 2017
Bottle. Pours opaque deep brown to black with modest well-lacing ivory head. Rich malts & oats on nose. Moderately roasty. Hints of coffee. Bit vinous. Medium body, smooth mouth feel. Medium dry to medium sweet taste. Pleasantly roasty, vinous, light fruitiness. The alcohol contain is perfectly hidden. Light bitterness on ending. This is an excellent stout. Just don’t put it into the category of impies.

I think this is what I had based on alcohol. Bottle looks a bit different. A nice sweet stout. a bit of licorice, oily mouthfeel. Coffee at the backend, and gritty. Very good.
