Excellent, chocolately, caramely aroma. Medium level of carbonation, with head clinging to the sides. Head lingers long after pouring, with Brussels lace. Rich, dark brown pour, hard for light to penetrate. Flavors of coffee and caramel. Overall an excellent beer that I enjoyed.

Let me start by saying that....Seattle beer kicks ass!

A: pours jet black with a half finger a dirty brown head.

S: over all smell is kinda weak but you do get some nice roasty malts with a hint of sweet toffee on the end of the nose.

Taste: it is more hoppy than most oatmeal stouts but is still very good. you get a sweet malty splash as it hits your palate, as it sinks in you get hit by the toffee/coffee factor and then finishes with a sticky hoppyness.

M: clean up front, finishes with a sticky hoppy resin.

OA: SBA Brew (SBA= Super Bad Ass)

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

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a thin brown head that fades very quickly and leaves a very thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains dark fruit, oats, some coffee and chocolate, roasted malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of coffee, chocolate and dark fruit followed by oats and a hearty roasted malt character. There’s a little bit of creaminess to it. The hops presence is very mild but provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium-to-heavy body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid stout to drink for a while.

From 12/11/11 notes. Not sure exactly why, but this has been a Want of mine for a long time and I never got around to trading for a bottle until now. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into my Duvel Green tulip.

a - Pours a black color with two inches of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Little head retention and some spotty lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, vanilla, and light bitter chocolate. Pretty nice, very roasty.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, vanilla or cream, light coffee, light wood, and bakers chocolate. Very nice, a tiny step up from the nose.

m - Medium to full body and low to moderate carbonation, very smooth and creamy. Very easy to drink, a great mouthfeel for an oatmeal stout.

o - Overall I thought this was a really nice oatmeal stout; one of the better ones I've had in recent memory. Ton of roasted notes and chocolate, and very easy to drink. Very glad I bought this, and would buy it again.

I purchased a bottle in 2010 and have been aging it in my cellar until tonight. Poured into a Brooklyn Brewery oversized snifter. Dark brown colored body. Thin white head, meaning some carbonation may have been lost over time. Spots of lacing here and there on the glass. Smell was faint; mostly coffee but just a slight hint of butter. Taste was enjoyable. Lots of layers of coffee, roasted grain, cocoa, and maybe some cereal. Mouthfeel was smooth but there was a slight bitterness at the end on the palate. The abv was toned down well, and not overly noticeable. The label calls itself an Imperial Oatmeal Stout, and the phrase applies well. It's much more potent in flavor than other regular oatmeal stouts that I have had in the past.
