4.54/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a Stone IRS snifter. This imperial coffee oatmeal porter pours out very dark and opaque with a finger of fairly long-lasting light tan head. The nose has some really nice roasted malt and coffee notes without being a ``coffee bomb''. I also detect a creamy sweetness underneath.

Nice medium-full body and a real ``roast-forward'' flavor. Up front I get dark chocolate and some rich, nutty malt. At mid-palate lots of appetizing bitterness from the coffee and the roasted malt comes in and adds a nice complexity to the flavor. The underlying sweetness stays on the palate, smooths it out, and brings it together nicely, but overall the beer has a characteristic rich, porter-like roastiness. The coffee and roast linger on the finish, especially the coffee, which leaves behind a rich ``cold press'' coffee flavor dripping from the roof of your mouth.

A superb porter. I spend so much time with IPAs and Imperial Stouts that I often forget just how much I enjoy this style. This one is very traditional in its feel, flavor, and body and is as good as a porter gets. I'd love to someday conduct side-by-side comparisons with this one, Founders Porter, and GL Edmund Fitzgerald. Right now, I'd rank this one ahead of Founders without a second thought. It would be a toss-up as to whether it finished ahead of Edmund Fitzgerald.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle, bottled 25 Oct 2013 that I picked up today at Riley's to try before the recently released Devil over a Barrel (the partially BA version of this beer). Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 4/17/2014.

A- Opaque dark cola brown body. Doesn't illuminate at all. Comes with a one finger off-white head. Good retention, halfway sticky lacing.

S- Lots of rich black coffee, baker's chocolate, roast malt. Milk chocolate sweetness, almost like a lactose addition. Smells better than I expected.

F- Black drip coffee, milk chocolate, roast malts and a rich nuttiness that complements the coffee well. A lactose-like sweetness balances the coffee bitterness on the backend.

M- Medium bodied, on the thinner side as it is slightly watery in feel, but not in flavour. Good carbonation, expected for the style. Finish is nicely balanced- not too dry nor is it watery, but it is also simultaneously sweet (milk chocolate sweetness) and bitter (black coffee). Would have liked the body to be more substantial, especially as this has adjunct oatmeal.

O- Very good imperial porter with a very rich malt profile that blends coffee in very well. A very good buy at $10/4-pack. Looking forward to trying the partially BA version of this.

The Devil made me do it pours a black color with a small, but long lasting and lacing head. There is a huge rich, and creamy coffee aroma. The taste has a nice bold coffee flavor, but is very creamy and has a nice oatmeal flavor. Very drinkable, good flavors, just the smallest bit watery. Overall a very rich and creamy coffee beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

L - rigorous pour reveals a syrupy dark brown ale topped with a thinner tan head
S - rich aroma of coffee, chocolate, oats, roasted barley
T - coffee, chocolate, oats, roasty, very rich, caramel
F - super creamy, full body, easy to drink
O - excellent beer, but it does remind me of a certain other popular coffee chocolate oatmeal stout. This is very good nonetheless.
