Coming in a 650ml bomber brown bottle, bottle-conditioned; production date 15/02/2013, served gently chilled in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a black hue, coming with a dark khaki foamy head retreating slowly to a thin cap, while the carbonation level is pretty low.
S: rich, oily and deeply chocolaty, roast/black malts balanced by equally robust and lively hop aroma as of citrus-rich hop varieties. The second layer consists of jammy black dates, oily nuts, and creamy treacle-flavoured fudge. Overall, the aroma is rich but definitely not overwhelming, delivering a really decent and deep impact on the nose.
T: light-bodied on the entry, the foretaste is initially aromatically citric hoppy, bitter-sweet nutty, bitter chocolaty, roasty-malty at the same time, ensued by a burned-walnut (on skins) aroma, a good acidity, a decent level of fruity hoppiness & bitterness and a dry-ish palate lasting towards the chewy, aromatically roast-malt and hoppy finish. Oatmeal? Can’t say if there is or isn’t, but the smooth texture alongside the light-ish body does make me wonder that oatmeal is used in the brew.
M&O: softly carbonated on the mouthfeel, the body remains medium against a rather rich but not heavy flavour profile; this “Imperial Oatmeal Stout”, to me, is a lovely twist of the older concept of rich and oily export stout that benefits from good craftsmanship and skilful manipulation of aromatic American hops. Absolutely lovely…!!

I completely agree with KangarooAdem59, he nailed it. Not time for it in Texas yet but here in Seattle it could not be a better night for a Stout. Light the fireplace pour into a fine beer glass and kickback and enjoy every taste of this fine beer. Tonight I decided to make sure to drink at least one Stout of the quality every week"
