3.9/5  rDev -4.9%

22 Ounce Bottle served in a goblet style glass

A - Very black with a minimal head and almost no lacing.

S - Well roasted coffee with some chocolate and some molasses in the background.

T - Chocolate and coffee upfront with malty sweetness in the finish. I drank it as close to the recommend 48 degrees and at that temp could hardly sense the high alcoholic strength.

M - Surprisingly "normal" as I was expecting something a little "thicker". Low carbonation makes this easy to drink.

O - This beer warrants serious respect as the 11% ABV could jump you if you're not careful. This is a very good stout and well worth a try for anyone who enjoys this style.

09/26/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Part of a flight which included So. Tier Creme Brulee, Java Head, Imperial OAT & Founders Brkfst Stout. Started w/the OAT. Nice but compared to the rest it's a bit lacking.

I should give it another chance.

Pours dark as night black, a laser ain't getting through this tar.

Roasted malts, burnt sugar, and of course oatmeal.

The roasted malts and sugary sweetness are very upfront, with quite a bit of booziness (though this is a two year old bottle).

Mouthfeel is a little too boozy, thins it out.

Overall, I love oatmeal stouts, so I liked this, but love it I do not.
