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.

The second glass from a 22oz bottle. From a Tree House Brewery tulip.

Pours dark, very dark. Held up to a light nothing passes through. One inch head is a yummy light brown color. Head disappears after a few minutes and leaves minimal lacing.

Smell is roasted malt, molasses, a bit of chocolate. Not overwhelming.

Taste is like the smell, but much more pronounced. Chocolate, coffee, with a bit of vanilla.

Not a heavy tasting beer. Light on the pallet.

As I was drinking this I thought it was an approachable oatmeal stout for a non beer geek. It seemed easy drinking. Then I looked at the label and saw it was 9%. Whodathunk.
Wormtown does some great things. Can't wait for the barrel aged version of this.

A-A bit of a gusher; more of a slow puke of foam falling out of the bottle. When poured, the body of the beer is big, black and thick. The head starts off gigantic then does down to a thin mass of foam. Thick lacing rings.

S-Sweet fudge and flat cola. Sugary coffee and roast. Light vanilla with a noticeable donation from the cocoa nibs. Was expecting this to be more coffee stressed but I guess the flavor will truly tell.

T-The flavor is more coffee-esque. Like a cool glass of creamy mocha iced coffee. Fudgy like the nose with some bitter dark chocolate truffle. Oats and burnt caramel. Some vanilla extract. Creme brûlée. The flavors blend really well together.

M-Silky with a fuller body. Very soft carbonation. I would love another bottle to drink for breakfast...

O/D-Wormtown, one of my favorite breweries. Was lucky enough to stumble upon this brew. I enjoyed it but it didn't 'wow' me. It' definitely gets tastier as you make your way through the bottle.
