330 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 5/13/2016. Pours dense pitch black color with a small dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty dark roasted coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted oats, dark bread, marshmallow, and molasses; with lighter notes of vanilla, cream, smoke, dark fruit, herbal, wood, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty dark roasted coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted oats, dark bread, marshmallow, and molasses; with lighter notes of vanilla, cream, smoke, dark fruit, herbal, wood, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/woody hop and roast malt/coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty dark roasted coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted oats, dark bread, marshmallow, molasses, light vanilla/dark fruit, herbal, wood, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Slight dryness from roast/hop bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Light-medium carbonation and very full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety, and lightly slick/sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Minimal warming alcohol for 10.9%. Overall this is an incredible imperial coffee oatmeal stout! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to sip on for the big ABV. Very unique/intense on coffee complexity and awesome balance with the base oatmeal stout. A highly enjoyable offering.

Poured into a Teku. A nearly opaque dark brown color with a foamy and large tan head that receeded quickly. The aroma was somewhat muted: freshly ground coffee, bread, and roasted malt. The taste was much better: bitter up front with a bit of floral hops, followed with rich chocolate, toast, coffee, and faint cherries. A creamy, robust body with a silky feel. There was a nice warming on the end signaling the alcohol, but it wasn't boozy. Very nice.
