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.
