Oatmeal Stout |  10.30% ABV

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
For our very limited release Imperial Otis, we souped up our oatmeal stout recipe and aged it in Willet Bourbon barrels for four months. We then blended it with a small amount of un-oaked Imperial Otis to find balance. It pours black with an extra-dark brown head and is 10.3% ABV.

As with any beer, the tasting experience varies from person to person, and especially so with a beer as rich and complex as Imperial Otis. When you try it, let us know what aromas and tastes you got from the beer. For us, it was full roast malt flavor, delightful oat creaminess, and notes of coconut and vanilla from the aging process. With all the rich malt and barrel-aged notes, the nose reminds us of a coconut macaroon dipped in dark chocolate.

From 04/01/14 notes. Had on tap at The Jeffrey in NYC. 12oz pour in a snifter for $8.

a - Pours a deep dark brown color, almost black, with one inch of very dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks great.

s - Smells of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, cream, coconut, dark chocolate, and burnt malts. Nice mix of sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon, though the bourbon isn't too strong. Pretty good.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, bourbon, sweet chocolate, caramel malts , toasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, toffee, oak, and cream. The taste is great; more bourbon though it doesn't dominate, and lots of chocolate, vanilla, and caramel. I like it a lot.

m - Medium to full body and moderate carbonation. Tiniest bit of heat from the bourbon, smooth and creamy overall. Great mouthfeel, easy to drink.

o - Overall I like the normal version of this one but think this is even better. It is blended of bourbon BA Otis and non-BA Otis I believe, and I think it helps as it isn't a bourbon bomb and is still easy to drink. Would recommend checking out, especially if you like the normal Otis.
