4.56/5 rDev +10.9%
Bottled in November of 2013.
A: Pitch black with a fizzy, sticky, medium-brown head that fades into good retention and lace.
S: Massive roasted malt, vanilla, brown sugar, oats and milk sugar, molasses, sweet dark dried fruits, wood, and some booze to finish it up nicely. Extremely complex...although it's technically an Imperial Oatmeal Stout!
T: Along the lines of the nose but sooo much creamier than expected. The oats truly enhance this beer. Many beers of this style allow the oats to come through but this one really makes them known. And I like that...a lot! As it should be, this is a big stout mellowed out with the addition of oats and the greatness they can bring. Wood, roasted malt, caramelized and sweet sugars, as well as booze stand out amongst the myriad flavors.
M: As already stated, beyond smooth & creamy with massive (seriously massive) flavor. So damn delicious. Carbonation and body are strong and on-point as is the finish. Never ever cloying. For real. And although it's a bruiser at 9%, it never detracts from any aspect of the beer (but by the end of the bottle, good feelings are happening).
O: A true breakfast stout, this is honestly up there with Founders' ubiquitous version of the style. In a blind taste test, I wouldn't doubt this beer to be the victor. An absolute joy to drink from first sip to last.
