Big thanks to kmurray8621 for sending me this bottle! Thanks Kevin.
Pours a deep black color with a brown sugar colored head. It looks like someone squeezed brown mousse on top of my beer. Thick and sticky, it leaves awesome lacing and has great retention.
The nose is nice and roasted, with a solid chocolate aroma to it. Can definitely tell this is an Imperial Oatmeal stout, as it has that distinct smell. Smells good.
Taste is smooth and creamy, with chocolate and lightly roasted malts, vanilla and molasses. I get a little bit of tart cherries in the background, which I'm not used to in an oatmeal stout, but it seems to work here. Great tasting beer.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with a low carbonation and a nice drinkability.
Overall, a solid Imperial Oatmeal stout. Glad I got a chance to try this one...now I have an excuse to crack one of my multiple Barrel Aged BORIS!
