First Beyond the Pale seasonal... I think. Don't know if this is a limited, seasonal, or addition to the lineup, but they're taking preorders for 4 packs, so this isn't the last of it. It's actually an Imperial Oatmeal.
Pours a very dark brown. Two finger head off the pour. Mocha. Settles to a nice creamy film after five minutes or so. Spotty lacings to the finish.
Great roasty aroma, bordering on charcoal.
Coffee and light fruit gradually melt together to a subtle chocolate flavour. Bittersweet finish with a really faint heat. Booze is actually really well incorporated in this. Mouthfeel is pretty much spot on, almost creamy.
Quite well done, would be great if it were regular.

Had a half pint of this at the Lunenberg. From notes.
A - Poured black with two fingers of mocha head. Spotty lace and a half finger retention.
S - Charred, roasty, oats, licorice.
T - Chocolate, strong roast, licorice, oaty.
M - Mild carbonation, full body, roasty and dry to finish.
O/D - Went down really easy and there was no trace of the ABV in the flavour or aroma. They crafted this well, but it doesn't grab you like some better examples of the style. Room for improvement, but a job well done nonetheless.
