Style | ABV
American Double / Imperial Stout |  9.00% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
This imperial recipe begins with a big, rich stout packed with chocolate and coffee malts as well as oatmeal, and ends after a very generous hop addition. A portion of the brew was then aged in Templeton Rye whiskey barrels and the remainder was aged in our cellar. Before sending out the 2010 vintage, the two were blended for the perfect winter warmer.

Had this on tap in Oklahoma City's Republic Gastro pub (great food, great beer selection here!).

A - Deep dark, tan head that laced nicely on the sides of the glass.

S - Roasted malt goodnesss.

T - Very sweet and malty, nice roast, not burnt at all, and nice hints of oak, not overwhelmingly oaky (which is a good thing to me). Some oak aged are too heavy on the oak, but this is very nicely balanced.

M - Very smooth, nice and thick.

O - Really enjoyed sippin' on this. It took a while to get through it, it is a big beer, but the flavor is fantastic. It is on the sweet side, which I personally enjoy, but for some it may be a bit much. Reminded me a lot of Surly's Darkness (big compliment). Really nice job here Coop! Highly recommend.

Unmarked bottle that appears to be this brew from trader.

A: pretty standard BA RIS, but you can see through this one a bit more.

S: Oak Bourbon forward, nutty RIS background

T: At first this reminded me of an 06 BCBS, but then I realized that there is more oak nuttiness to this brew. Definitely more than I expected. Great brew.

M: This for its style

O: I was pleasantly surprised by this brew. I have not had a BA Stout with this much Oak and nuttiness to it. Nuts

2010 vintage from coldmeat23. Bottle #585/612. Served in a snifter.

A - Tan foam settles to a thick collar, leaving behind specks of lace. Black body that is quite opaque.

S - Hefty doses of vanilla, roasted malts, chocolate, oak, dark fruit, and perhaps a hint of whiskey.

T - Taste is quite similar, with roasted malts, caramel, vanilla, and dark fruits dominating the palate. Perhaps a tad sweeter than aroma, and with negligible whiskey contribution here. Alcohol is well-hidden.

M - Medium body that is sufficient for 9% but definitely a bit light for an Imperial Stout. Slightly chewy and sticky texture, with a bit of oaky dryness in the finish. Some mild alochol warmth after a glass, but fairly tame.

D - Another pleasant Oklahoma surprise. The oak-aged element of this beer is pretty tame, but it's a tasty and competently brewed Imperial Stout. Hopefully my 2011 bottle is just as good.
