Pours piano black into a pint glass, generating a fairly thick and durable beige head. The little bottle is adorned with a nice painting of a toddler eating a spoonful of might be a bowl of oatmeal. Smell is rich, roasted, chocolatey, with a coffee note and some acidity in the background. Tastes complex but well into what is expected from a stout. Darkly roasted coffee beans and some smokiness are noticeable in the aftertaste. The body is full, almost oily. This is a very special brew. A real treat!

Poured on tap at The Village Tavern in Geneseo, NY.

Pours dark black, with a small mocha colored head. Very thick lacing.

Smells like roasted coffee beans and roasted malt.

Tastes incredible. Strong, bitter, slightly astringent coffee, sweet chocolate (cocoa powder and brownie batter are what I get), and oats. Making this a coffee oatmeal imperial stout was genius- the oats give this an incredibly smooth, velvety, silky mouthfeel. Absolutely amazing. Low carbonation.

One of the best for sure. Look forward to it yearly.

Not much to say other than that I think this stuff should come with an additional warning about the caffeine content. I drank 3 pints and didn't get to sleep until 4am and remained buzzed into the next morning. It is outstanding. It reminds me of Old Rasputin with a huge hit of dark roast coffee. But, be careful with this stuff or you will regret it!
