Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - AUG 7, 2007
22oz. bottle. Deep aroma of fine dark chocolate, exotic spices, toffee and espresso, roasty and gently sweet along with lighter notes of red grape, plum, cookie dough and some background earthiness, along with a mere touch of an almost soap-like floral perfume. Opaque brown-black color with a dense brown head that subsides nearly entirely. Bottle-conditioned. Flavor is very richly malty, full of semi-sweet chocolate and dark, roasty, smoky grains, combined with molasses and dark fruitiness, some blackcurrant, raisin and lightly citric hop character, and finishing with a blend of faint, peppery alcohol, a moderate amount of hop bitterness, lingering coffeeish roastiness, buttery toffee and a gentle influx of spices. Silky smooth and lightly warming on the palate with a decidedly full body. Enjoyable, seeming to possess a quiet complexity.

IndianaRed (4101) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle pours a viscous deep black with a tall thick chocolate head......that reminds me, I need to change the oil on my 73 Dodge Dart. BIg roasted aroma with lots of sweet soft chocolate notes. Tootsie rolls and cinnimon rolls. Some coffee is in the flavor but still mainly very roasted and chocolately. Lacing the harch bitter bite that throws me off sometimes. lingering bitterness ballances the sweet fdark malts nicely. Moderate carbonation. Just enough. Coats your mouth a bit and it sticks with you. A nice Impy. Thanks Buckeyeboy and his secret santa.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - AUG 2, 2007
Black and thick, sweet bitterness from coffee beans and sweet belgium chocolate. Difrent from other I.Stouts because of the added oatmeal cookie tastes. Silky smooth with a hoppy bitter finish.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2007 I want to have babies with this beer. This beer rocks.. To steal the parlance of Hopscotch. Pours with absolutely no head except for a slight, dark caramel rim around the beer. 30 weight oil could take notes from this beer. Aroma is of sweet, sweet chocolate, oats, and coffee. Taste follows suit, and as it warms it becomes slightly oily, bitter/hoppy, and lingeringly yummy. This beer is great.

mabel (8652) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2007
[471-20070728] 22floz (w/ jerc). Sickly sweet molasses aroma suggests a dark bitter malt base. Black body with a medium-lasting foamy tan head. Nice bitter dark malt flavour is only a bit sweet. Fairly smooth full body does not hide the alcohol. Unfortunately sickly aroma otherwise quite nice.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Bomber. Black with a brown ringed head. Bitter black coffee, raisin, cocoa and plum all come together in a roasty malt wrapper. A bit of citrus tinges the finish. Awesome!

jercraigs (10145) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2007
Bottle. Black as night with a small foamy oily brown head. Big boozey aroma with moderate chocolaty malt notes and very light hop presence. (7+) Rich flavour has dark bitter chocolate and a health dose of hop assisting the bitterness. Lingering chocolate malt into the finish. Alcohol is warming but much less noticeable in the flavour than in the aroma where it threatens to overwhelm some of the more subtle notes. Lacks the heights of some other imperial stouts, but keeps you well occupied and pleasantly sated in the mid ranges. Thick oily palate. A very nice stout.

Heavy stout. Black with milk chocolate head. Semi-sweet, roasted malt with havy chocolate/coffee flavor. Rolls around mouth with a thick creamy texture.

Wow! Whole new experience the second time around. I must have got a bad batch my first try because this Imperial Oatmeal Stout is BIG! Very dark, creamy chocolate and oatmeal flavor. Leaves a smack-your-lips aftertaste that is nothing short of delicious. A pitch-black pour with a ruby ring around the edge, this is an phenominal stout from a local distributor.
