Dark chocolate brown color. Weak head with minimal retention and no lacing.

Roasted, spicy, coffee, oatmeal and chile pepper aroma.

Moderately bitter roasted malt with coffee added. Oats mellow the palate. Hot chile peppers in the back of the mouth.

Medium bodied. Well carbonated. Coarse texture.

12 FLUID OUNCE bottle
Served in a snifter

It pours jet black. Like a black hole this beer swallows up all light. This beer never really developed a head. It was more like a mocha film that was gone before I got a good glimpse of it.

Coffee aroma was noticeable as I poured. It is a sweetened coffee smell like coffee and cream. There were some roasted malt notes, but the coffee took center stage.

There is a strong coffee presence in the taste. It is not a bitter coffee flavor. Much like the aroma, the taste has a sweetness to it. Fresh roast coffee with a little cream.

It is full bodied with low carbonation.

Another great offering from the Brewers Gone Wild series. The stouts and porters have been fantastic.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. A new one to me from Tyranena, an "imperial oatmeal porter brewed with coffee beans". No abv listed on the bottle.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - It pours a deep dark cola brown body with about a finger of thick mocha head. Leaves behind some okay scattered lacing.

S - The aroma is occupied by tons of authentic fresh cold coffee / coffee bean roast, and notes of chocolate / powdery cocoa. The African coffee varietals come through nice and distinctly on the aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose - tons of authentic fresh cold roasted coffee bean presence, with notes of chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, caramel, and wood. Mild alcohol warmth.

M - The feel is rich, smooth, thick, & creamy. Lingering notes of vanilla / caramel / woodsiness. Medium-fullish in body, with excellent carbonation.

Overall, a very nice borderline-stout porter from Tyranena, definitely an exceptional example of the style.

Tyranena The Devil Made Me Do It! Coffee Imperial Oatmeal Porter -----4/5.

Big coffee aroma. Smells like a starbucks. Taste is sweet mocha. Lots of coffee and chocolate. Very good.

Trying to sample some different Oatmeal Stouts and picked this one up as well - This is my first Imperial Oatmeal Porter. The overall feeling is similar to a good Oatmeal Stout so I'm a little confused and need some more education on this matter. This is also part of Tyranena's 'Brewer gone wild' series, so not sure how long this will be around, but if they make it part of their regular or seasonal offers, I'm a buyin'.
Sampled this while making tacos for the fam, so I was able to taste at various F degrees.
A: Opaque with a half-inch thick pocketed head that reminded me of an old sepia picture of the lunar surface. The head dissipated within a couple of minutes to a slight film. Tilting the glass left the film clinging to the walls - impression 'heavy'.
S: Roasted coffee and malts - not strong
T: Malts, coffee with a slight bitterness on the tail - very drinkable.
M: Thick, soft fullness - filling.
After letting it sit the coffee flavor and scent became a little more pronounced, but not pungent or overwhleming - just pleasant.
O: Glad I tried this one. Not overwhelming with the coffee flavor and very smooth.

A: Pours nearly opaque black, with just a hint of brown around the edges. A two finger tan head forms, and gently recedes in a minute. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Big roasted coffee beans up front and center. Bittersweet chocolate, toasted malts. Very nice.
T: Again, roasted coffee beans are big and take over from beginning to end. A bit of bitter chocolate and toasted malts. Finishes bitter and slightly acrid.
M/D: A full body and moderate carbonation. I wish the oatmeal would smooth this out more. As is, a rough and kind of grainy mouthfeel. Not hard to drink. I think if this was more rounded and smooth, I could drink this in a second.

A nice coffee stout, but I wish this was more rounded and the acrid coffee less sharp. Founder's Breakfast Stout has this beat on all counts, but I still like it. Not the masterpiece I was hoping this to be, but still very enjoyable.

Pretty sure the bottling date is October 24, 2013. Whoops.

A: Black pour with a small medium brown head. Kinda fizzy. Head dissipates quickly with no lacing.

S: Plenty of coffee in there. Nice roasted coffee beans and notable sweet grainy oatmeal. Bittersweet chocolate and just a hint of soy sauce.

T: Really nice combination of bitter coffee, bittersweet chocolate and sweet, creamy oatmeal. Turns a little extra bitter in the finish as the coffee takes over for a little bit. Bitter coffee grinds and semi-sweet chocolate lingers forever in the dry finish.

M: Medium bodied, lightly bitter and dry. Smooths out with the oatmeal to an extent, however.

O: Really nice coffee oatmeal porter. Nice balance of bitter, sweet and creamy flavors that all compliment each other. Coffee is not overpowering but that may be the age on the bottle. Instead it is smooth and easy drinking. Very nice.
