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.
