12oz bottle thanks to dashirey on BA. Pours dark brown, but light in color for the style, with a little bit of tan foam sitting on top that fades to swirls. Aroma is lots of sherry-like oxidation. Roast and chocolate as well. Flavor is nice and chocolatey. Pretty subtle for an RIS. Some dark fruits and sherry-like oxidation. Like a toned-down, aged Kate the Great almost. Medium-light bodied for the style, but very smooth. Low carbonation. Very enjoyable aged imperial stout overall. Drinkable. Snojerk321 (2984) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 20, 2010
12oz bottle. When I first started on this brew I was thinking Barley Wine, I guess I was wrong. Pours a very dark caramel brown with a sea foam like beige head, some spotty lacing. Sweet toffee, caramel, brown sugar and candied dark fruits in both the nose and the flavor. A little watery on the palate with a light hop bitterness.

Bottle at the release of Flaming Fury. Pours black with a thin tan head. Caramel, vanilla, coffee. Smells amazing. Smooth coffee flavor and a long smooth finish.

Pours a very dark amber brown color with reddish chestnut brown edges when held to a light source and a huge foamy beige head with excellent retention leaving chunks of lacing here and there on it’s way down.
Sweet alcohol aroma with a lot of dark fruit notes and an underlying roasted chocolate malt backbone. Hints of chocolate, toffee, coffee and oatmeal.
Medium bodied that is slightly watered down. Pretty hoppy up front with a lot of oatmeal flavor followed by by a smooth roasted maltiness with hints of chocolate, caramel, oatmeal, burnt toast, coffee, toffee and a sweet yet dry hop finish.

12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing FooFaa! Soft, slightly oxidized alcohol and carameled brown sugars. A bit of deeper grains. Pours a dark clear brown, with a yellowish tan. Flavor is genericly sugar and alcohol. Hot. Hot. Hot. I can’t dig much out other than some plain malt, darker sugars, and a bit of grain. Past peak, probably. As an Imperial stout, this seems sub-par. fonefan (51064) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2009

[ Courtesy of Secret Santa ]. Clear dark brown color with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, chocolate, fresh raisin, prune, licorice notes, light alcoholic. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is creamy - oily, carbonation is soft. 
12oz bottle from MrBendo - thanks, Todd!!! Super yummy aroma on the pour from this bad boy. I’ve enjoyed the regular oatmeal stout from Troegs, and this amped up version is pretty tasty too. Oddly thin pour, looking more like an old ale or a brown, but the mouthfeel is somehow just fine, velvety and thick. Lots of chocolate and caramel for sure, and I wish there were just a bit more of the roasted quality. But overall this is a fine brew, which they should do again.
