3.6/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Typical Sierra Nevada excellence in the appearance. Black in colour, impressive 2 finger head of tan foam, great lacing.

Cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate in the smell...not strong but there. For a big beer, I expected a bigger "punch" smell wise.

Dark chocolate bitterness, roasted malt, coffee and cocoa, the taste is huge compared to what I was getting in the smell. I'm also getting some of the ample alcohol...why does an Oatmeal Stout need to be 9%abv? Oh well. The brew certainly won't bore me to death; it's actually tasty and with less alcohol, would be an easy drinker. As is, the sips I'm taking are on the slow side.

Full bodied, light carbonation, there's no complaints about the mouthfeel.

I like this beer but I guess I'm not a huge fan of an Imperial Oatmeal Stout, if that makes any sense.

T: Nice pleasant bitterness, medium and dark roast coffees, roasted malt and dark chocolate.

M: Medium-full bodied, and creamy smooth.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - This is a dark beer. No light peaks through this one. It had about an inch of brown head.

S - The smell is of dark chocolate and delicious roasted malt.

T - I get some of that dark chocolate and roasted malt. I get a little anise, as well.

M - Pretty full

O - At first I thought it was pretty good. Then I got that anise flavor. I am not a fan of anise. I am guessing that developed as it aged. I have noticed that character with other older stouts. I would have probably liked it better 355 days ago when I got it.

3.41/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: a solid, stubby 355mL brown bottle with an interesting Sierra Nevada-style old-school label.

Appearance: pours a dark brown tending toward black, with flaties visible against the light. One- and- a- half finger tan head rises up and lingers quite a time, decent lacing also.

Aroma: solid flavours of burnt oats, cocoa chocolate, coffee and molasses.

Taste: some oats here, but mostly just a thick smoke-driven bunch of heavy malts. Honestly a bit dull. Not all it had been cracked up to be.

Aftertaste: does linger for quite a time, which is nice. The smoke characteristics carry through nicely.

Mouth feel: heavier in body yet quite sharp instead of the usually smooth stout. Lower- to- mid carbonation.

Overall: an interesting but ultimately not worthwhile stout. The normal flavours of toffee, coffee and chocolate with some burnt oat to boot. Not worth the AU$125+ per case price, however. Not even nearly.

4.4/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

From my tasting notes: It poured a deep black with a substantial khaki head and heavy dark chocolate and roasted malts on the nose. The taste was very smooth with light carbonation for such a heavy looking brew. There were hints of chocolate, sweet roasted malt, and some oatiness with a bit of hop bitterness on the very end. This Oatmeal stout was like a toasty oatmeal dark chocolate chip cookie with the slight bitterness keeping it from becoming overly sweet. Should be even better with some age.
