look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into Lawson's snifter. Thanks Josh (thebigredone) for this one!

A- Pours an opaque dark black with a very thin layer of mocha brown head that recedes very fast. Fairly low carbonation, but consistent sporadic bubbles. Light lacing.

S- Coffee, roasted espresso beans, dark chocolate. Decently aromatic, coffee smell is slightly stale (imagine it was probably a tiny bit better a little bit fresher).

T- Coffee (like smell not the freshest), dark bitter chocolate, lightly creamy, roasted espresso beans. Good for an imperial oatmeal porter, however I felt like the coffee taste was slightly stale in it. Not as rich or fresh tasting as other coffee porters I've had.

M- Medium bodied, decent carbonation, easy drinking, slightly velvety, decent feel for a porter.

O- This was a decent coffee oatmeal porter, however I wasn't a huge fan of how the coffee tasted in it. Overall it was well done, but I felt like the coffee taste wasn't as good as other coffee porters I've had. I'd recommend checking this out, you probably won't be disappointed.

This isn't an overly complex beer as coffee and chocolate dominate the flavor. It really works well though as this is a great, easy drinking coffee beer. The coffee taste and smell are the most dominant things in this beer and the coffee is just the right mix of being bold but not overpowering. I thought it compared favorably to Founders Breakfast Stout which is great because that beer is pretty highly respected.

A- Quickly dissipating brown head on a dark brown body. Small collar throughout.

S- Rich coffee on the nose with sweet undertones. Chocolatey delicious.

T- Tastes like a coffee brownie. The coffee used is not a favorite flavor of mine.

M- Lower carbonation, medium mouthfeel.

D/O- I would have liked the mouthfeel to be a little thicker but at "only" 7.5%abv that may be asking too much. Smell was great. With a little tweaking I feel like this could be in the same league as something like Founders Breakfast Stout. Thanks for the extra on a long time want Alex/StayWhatYouAre2!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle poured into New Belgium Globe Glass
A- Opaque black in color, one finger light brown head dissipates quickly, little retention and lacing
S- Sweet chocolate, roasted coffee, chocolate dominates more as it warms, overall good aroma but not much depth
T- Dominated by coffee and cocoa taste, good balance between the two, roasted and and slight bitterness
M- Medium body, nice creaminess, pretty smooth, some carbonation
O- I remember this being a big coffee bomb when it was realeased (early Nov I believe?), chocolate and roasted malt character seems more prevalant now, overall a very good but not great coffee beer three months old.

Pour very dark brown, almost ebony color. Fairly thin head.

Smells excellent, all coffee and sweet malt. I don't know when this was bottled exactly but I was surprised to get so much coffee out of it still.

Flavor is also very good, wonderful coffee taste, wonderful sweetness. There's enough of a roasted backbone to carry the sweetness and abv level without it being cloying, and the coffee obviously helps. Really good balance between sweetness and coffee.

Mouthfeel is excellent, super creamy. The silky effect from the oatmeal is pronounced and obvious.

This is a great beer, I'm picky about imperial porters as I often find them too sweet, but this one had great balance and I really enjoyed it, finished it wanting more.

8.1/10
