3.86/5 rDev -3.5%
A-Pours a very dark brown. Small accumulation of brown head. Mild lacing.
S-Moderate roast with a more noticeable chocolate presence. Light roast coffee and maybe a bit of dark fruit.
T-Chocolate muffins. Roast maltiness is far from over the top. Oats and light nuts. Alcohol sneaks in on the flavor's finish.
M-Body is not very viscous or full. I could stand to see it a bit fuller. Flavors do not linger for very often. Mild bitterness.
O-A pretty standard, albeit tasty Imperial Stout. It doesn't press the boundaries of the style like seemingly every other Imperial Stout is trying to do now a days and their strategy with this beer worked for me.

Poured a deep brown hue with a one finger foamy tan head. There was decent retention and lacing.
The smell featured roasted malts, dark fruit and charcoal.
The taste consisted of a chewy roasted malt with charcoal and a touch of lactose.
The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side if the style with a gentle carbonation.
Overall a tasty and brawny oatmeal stout.

A-typical dark looking beer with a decent head that doesn't last long
S-Not much to say. Oddly smells like a wild ale
T-I must have a bad bottle. Taste like vinegar and nothing else. I even had someone else taste it and by the look on their face I am correct.
M-Not bad. Regular feel.
O-I am chaulking this one up as a fluke. I will try again if I run into it on tap.

This brew pours a solid black with a three finger mocha head and strong lacing all the way through. Some of head also remains on the top of the brew until the end. There are faint red highlights when this brew is held up to the light.
The smell is coffee, chocolate, oats, sweet malts and nuts. Everything blends together nicely.
The taste follows the nose with burnt coffee and chocolate dominating at the beginning, then moving to sweet malts and oats with a little nutty flavor. There are just enough hops on the back end in order to prevent this brew from being too sweet. A slight amount of hop oil remains on the tongue after swallowing.
The mouthfeel is smooth and silky. Everything goes down easily.
Overall this is a well balanced stout; it reminds me of Founders Breakfast Stout although it does not have all of the subtleties of that brew it is a close second. Will drink again especially if I cannot get Founders.
