Bomber from 2010, courtesy of injuredreserve, finally pulled out of the cellar and shared. Didn't mean to age this one so long, but sometimes that's just the way things go. Right?

A: Black body with brown highlights and a finger of fine brown head. Ok retention, delicate lace. Pretty good.

S: Rich chocolate, dark fruit, graham cracker, and hazelnut. Very pleasant.

T: Chocolate-covered raisin up front, with nuttiness and coffee toward the finish. Long, nutty, bittersweet aftertaste. Complex and tasty.

M: Soft, creamy medium body. Excellent.

O: This held up incredibly well for a not-quite-imperial stout, and was well-received both by me and everyone with whom I shared the bottle. I didn't expect much after accidentally aging it for three years, but it was just great.

Cheers!

A thick, black stout...obsidian and as dard ans a coal mine. The head is a brownish tan, full and thick ,with serious staying power. A complex and boozy brew, the smell is a wild mix of alcohol, smoke, grain, oats, peach skins, hay, and charcoal. Interesting and intense. Full and medium sweet taste. If anything, it has a bit too much warming and high alcohol scent and feel.m it would be a great winter brew. Full in body. Substantial in all respects.

Elysian Brewing's Dragonstooth Oatmeal Stout pours what a nice stout should pour, that is, a deep, deep black with a thick tan head. Lacing and retention are both top notch.

Dragonstooth has a powerful aroma of sweet, roasted malts with coffee and chocolate. There might be a touch of hops in there, but if there is, it's pretty well-hidden.

The taste starts off nice and creamy, with notes of chocolate up front. This is followed by a nice, roasted, bitter coffee flavor, which stays on the tongue for a while.

Dragonstooth is full-bodied, creamy and chewy, with medium-low carbonation.

This is a great example of a thick and powerful stout.

Pour is black with burnt edges and a coffee colored tight head. Nose is light, charred malt, faint milk chocolate, and a hint of roasted coffee. Taste is a hint brighter, charred malt, light chocolate and coffee. Medium to light body with soft carbonation and a fairly dry finish.

Is this a stout? Yes it is, and boy is it one. I can't think of any other way to put it. Poured it into a pint glass and was rewarded with a rich cola-colored head, a rich dark brown body, and the dark roasted malt characteristics of a stout. By itself, a wonderful drink, and just as well made for a good black-and-tan, if that's your taste.
