A - Pitch black with a dark tan head. Lots of lacing. Looks nice
S - Awesome aroma...tons of oatmeal, espresso, and chocolate. The aromas don't blend and all are unique
T - wow, lots of coffee and chocolate and tons of oatmeal. Very well bakanced. Finishes dry with flavors of cocoa nibs and espresso
M/O - An excellent example of variation of style and one of the best coffee oatmeal beers out there. Must try

Poured from bottle into tulip glass
A- Body is totally opaque. No light penetration whatsoever. Black as motor oil with a frothy khaki-colored one-finger head.
S- Stong notes of dark coffee. Even moreso than the Founders Breakfast Stout. Roasted malts and a slight chocolate presence in there as well.
T- Coffee, coffee, and more coffee. Again, its more coffee-centric than the Founders Breakfast Stout. Roasted malts follow the coffee. Not getting much chocolate at all though. This stuff is simply wonderful! God bless Jittery Joe!
M- Has a closer to medium than heavy mouthfeel. Kind of surprising for an imperial oatmeal stout.
O- I am totally impressed by this beer. This is a killer stout and is right up there with the Founder's Breakfast Stout. The FBS has a better mouthfeel, but I actually think this stuff tastes even better. Either way, its a standout by any measure.

A: Darkest black imaginable with a milk chocolate-y rich head.
S: Strong smell of roasted coffee. No perceptible hops aroma.
T: Bitterness (but most likely from the roasted malts and not from the hops). Vanilla. Relatively dry finish.
M: Good alcohol warmth. Creamy and smooth. Good attenuation.
Notes: Like drinking a cup of coffee. Nice for such a cold and rainy day.

Poured into snifter. 4-pack for around $8. 2011 Vintage printed on bottle.
A- pours black. brown-copper half an inch of head, a lot of chocolatey lacing
S- coffee, coffee, coffee. hints of sugar and vanilla. more chocolate scents emerge as beer warms.
T- impeccable. A smooth mixture of strong coffee and dark chocolate that persists even after i stop drinking. Bitter and creamy.
M- thinner than i expected, but still medium-bodied. the richness makes up for any shortcomings of the body. Perfect carbonation.
O- fantastic oatmeal stout. I can't say much more than what has already been said.

Enjoyed while at the brewery in Athens, ga. Jet black with no light getting through. Thin almost non-existent head and no lacing. Aroma is pretty much like smelling a handful of ground coffee. Because of this I can't pick up much else. More coffee in the taste which is also dominating but I love coffee so that is fine fr my taste but may be overwhelming for others. Some milk chocolate notes throughout. Mediun to thick body and moderate carbonation. Fairly drinkable if u like coffee.

A - Jet black body with a very think coffee colored head. Head lasts a minute being very thick and settles to about a quarter inch where it remains.
S - Strong coffee notes up front. Roasted barley, toffee, and caramel play with each other towards the end. Slight Kahlua smell as well.
T - Sweet vanilla and coffee tastes up front and towards the end. In between those tastes a more mellowed earthy coffee taste is present. Pretty strong alcohol towards the end as well.
M - Heavy bodied thick beer. Slight alcohol burn.
O - One of my favorites to look forward to each year. This years batch is another winner. Great coffee presence without complete overkill. Worth trying at anytime you can find it.
