4.45/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance - Everything an imperial stout should be: pitch black, 1 finger tan head (which dissipates very fast, and opaque. Some alcohol lacing, but not a lot.
Aroma - Chocolate and coffee up front. Pretty much dominates the beer. Roasted malts make their presence known, but dark chocolate and coffee take over. there is almost a slight vanilla aroma as well
Taste - coffee nips this one in the bud. starts off with the coffee flavor and quickly turns into dark chocolate; just like the aroma. roasted malts lend a hand in the overall balance of the beer, which has the slightest of hops present. No alcohol present at all
Mouthfeel - right on point. creamy as can be, little carbonation, heavy on he palate. really completes the beer. the oats call for a creamy imperial stout
Overall - solid imperial stout. for being a chocolate, coffee, oatmeal beer, this really brings all of those to the table. the oats with the creaminess, the coffee up front, and he dark chocolate that rounds out the beer. such a solid beer and cant be beat for a winter seasonal
Serving type: on-tap

On principle, I am hesitant to rate a beer as perfect. This is the tastiest stout I have ever had. Is it the best? I am not sure, and the only reason I'm not sure is that there are still other beers out there in the world. It pours heavy, no head and minimal lacing, into a tulip glass (next time I'll use a snifter). It tastes sweet, and bitter, and chocolatey - I sense coffee, but on my palate the chocolate is more present - and heavy. Like I really could have it for breakfast. And by God the next time I don't have to work and my kid is already at daycare, I will have one for breakfast, and by then maybe I'll decide it truly is the best stout ever.
