Rated on 20170520.
Pours hazy dark red, almost black color with a small beige head. Aroma is hoppy and a bit fruity even, caramel, some malts and faint bread. Flavor is dry bready and roasted malty, hops, resin and caramel. Carbonation is a tad too strong here. Okay otherwise.

No ABV or BBE info on bottle
Aroma has cocoa, some hay and some chocolate. Fizzy and somewhat foamy palate. Flavour has artifical vanilla, some salty licorice and mild pot coffee tones. Also some lactic acid – I wonder if there’s even a small contamination here. The amount of CO2 tries to ruin the show here.
Tap at The Brass Tap, Austin. Dark brown color, not much head. Rye bready, toasted aroma. Medium-bodied. Burned malty, a bit boozy, bready flavor. Oat makes this smooth. Not so balanced for my liking but ok. jerseyjohn71 (309) - Corsicana, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2017

The bottle only says Convict Hill Oatmeal Stout. It doesn’t say Imperial or the abv. I guess this is this. Black color with a small tan head.
Dry roasted malt, licorice, some cough drops and some medicine notes in the aroma.
Super balanced flavor of dry roasted malt, licorice, cough drops, salt, dryness and some medicine notes. Really tasty. Amazingly smooth and balanced. This came totally out of the blue. I thought I bought a mild oatmeal stout... Wow! Nice!
Bottle. Chocolate oatmeal malt and dry grass aroma. Black with small tan head. Moderately sweet chocolate oat malt and mildly bitter dry grass/hay flavor. Body on the light side. Pretty good. hitit345 (29) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2016 On tap, tulip glass. Aroma of fresh clean grain. Black as night, perfect. Coffee color when glass tilted toward light. Taste of a medium roast coffee using double the grounds. A little sweet on back end. Hearty palate, mouthful even when sipping. Great carbonation. Good beer. wombat23 (1417) - Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours brown-black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is similar to nose, with some coffee notes. Finish is dry, roasty, and acidic. Decent. ttoadee (1491) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2016
Jet black pour, nothing more than a ring of tan fuzz, no real head. Nose is espresso and mild coco. Bittersweet. Middle is coffee grounds, dark malt, chalky chocolate. Finish is bitter, a little boozy.
