2013 bottle.

A: Pours a clear, but nearly opaque black with ruby/plum-tinged light passing through the edges and 1/4 finger of mocha-colored head that quickly dissipates.

S: Super deep, rich, bitter, black coffee. Huge coffee nose with only a little detectable sweetness. I did not realize how much coffee to expect in this beer. Other beers have "coffee" in the name. This one puts them all to shame. Seriously. There comes big and hard with the coffee the whole way through the aroma, leaving way for very little else in terms of smell.

T/M: Smooth and cool bitterness of coffee with moderate carbonation and a slight fruity sweetness mid-sip. The coffee up front is really great. The finish, as expected, is bursting with more coffee. Coffee bitterness lingers long past the end of the sip. The mouthfeel is medium, so maybe just a little thin, with just about right carbonation, despite how still the beer looked. I can't detect the oatmeal of this past the coffee... maybe that's why it's a "coffee oatmeal imperial stout" and not an "oatmeal coffee imperial stout."

O: This is really the biggest "coffee" beer I've ever had in terms of how prominently it features the coffee. It's not what I expected it to be, but it's really quite nice. I don't know how often I will go back to this one, and I'm really not sure what I expect from it with age, but it's really a very nice beer. If you're looking for a coffee beer, I've not found a better one.

Pours black with. Dark beige head, single finger thickness. Smell is espresso, dark cocoa, and oatmeal. Taste is huge, starts with a great coffee and oatmeal flavor that finishes with very dark chocolate flavors. Some caramel and not a lot if sweetness. Texture is plenty thick but drinks very smooth. This beer is not very complex, it's smells and Tastes just like the label tells you it will. The difference is that this beer has amazing balance between the oatmeal, coffee, chocolate, and it tastes unreal. Glad I got a chance to pick this up during an out of state trip, easily one of the best coffee oatmel stouts I've ever had

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter

A- Burned motor oil black, with a half finger thick mocha brown head, very little lacing that dissipates quickly.

S- Very dark roast coffee, hints of oatmeal. Reminds me of the instant coffee my grandmother used to drink when I was a kid.

T- Strong coffee, hints of dark chocolate and oatmeal, finishes with a very faint sweet milk chocolate.

M- Medium bodied, lighter than I was expecting. Very smooth and creamy, slightly oily.

O- Excellent beer! Very well balanced, and the alcohol is hidden very well. I expected much more booziness out of this 9.4 percent beer. My new favorite non barrel aged Imperial stout. Better than Founder's Breakfast Stout IMO.
