look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pitch black with a good inch and a half head that is tan to light brown in color. Head dissipated rather quickly and leaves slight lacing.

Smell - Huge sticky, roasted malts up front followed by hints of chocolate, coffee, and alcohol at the end.

Taste - Starts off with a slight bitterness which transitions into a smooth flavor of oats, and finishes with a nice combination of chocolate and alcohol flavors.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full mouthfeel and extremely smooth on the palate. Carbonation was moderate.

Overall - This is a great example of a Double Stout. It's well balanced and is incredibly drinkable. It's worth a try if you haven't had it before. I think I'm going to cellar a six pack of this and see how it is in six months or so.

Stoudt's Fat Dog Imperial Oatmeal Stout
12 oz brown bottle
Bottled on 06/13/06
Served in a 20 oz tulip pint glass

Pours an opaque black with a khaki colored head on top. Little spots of sticky lace cling to the sides of the glass.

The nose unveils whiffs of chocolate, roasted coffee and sweet dairy.

The mouthfeel is balanced nicely. Rich and dark chocolate flavors with an espresso bitterness biting on the finish. I also get a little taste of sweet cream dairy and Hershey's chocolate syrup. Hints of prune juice, barley and roasted malts take over the palate.

I served this one slightly above room temperature for pure enjoyment. Worth checking out, I really liked it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

States that it's bottle conditioned so I'm going to set one back for another 6-12 months and see what happens.

Appearance: Pours dark chocolate brown to black with a nice tan head. There are craters in the foam and it looks kind of cool in my snifter.

Smell: Prominent alcohol up front, espresso, baker's chocolate, and vanilla extract all woft out of the glass in perfect medley.

Taste: Bitter chocolate, licorice, espresso, and rum-soaked raisins finish out the sip. A definite dry, alcohol finish rounds out this tasty little stout.

Mouthfeel: thick and velvety presumably from the oats. Very complex and interesting.

Drinkability: Rainy day goodness in a glass. I will definitely be looking for this one again. Not super fantastic but unique enough that I will make this a regular rotation.
