Poured a jet-black color with a small, light brown head of foam. It smelled of bourbon, oak, vanilla and dark chocolate. Great roasty flavor with chocolate, vanilla, oak and booziness.

Based on this years itteration, I will bump up the smell & mouthfeel & appearanxe, plus overall. Much more oak, vanilla & bourbon presence, thicker mmoyth feel & appearance. This in the top 3 of Beers made in state...

Bottle 245/612 pours an effervescent ebony with a 2 fingers of rich brown head. Nice viscious look to this, a bit of lacing & head retention

S: Much dark fruit & vanilla up front. The nose kind of runs out of gas as it warms up

T: Follows the nose, some nice choclate & oaky notes up front. Dryness, slight boozey heat, dark cherry, raisin & vanilla are all working together as this warms, along with a touch of licorice. Finishes with a touch of smokeyness, vanilla, toffee, cherry, a kiss of tobacco

MF: Medium bodied, fairly firm carbonation & pretty warming, slight oilyness as well

This is a very good IMP stout that fails to hit the correct notes on smell & mouth feel. I will happily buy more if given the chance I am sure this vintage/beer has years of great enjoyment ahead for those lucky enough to stock up. Coop has hit at least a triple with this one!

A: The beer pours a dark brown, almost black, color with a tan head on it.

S: Smells quite roasty with lots of acrid coffee notes. A bit of espresso and dark chocolate along with green apple and a mild tannic oakiness. Some definite booziness, too.

T: The flavor isn't much better, unfortunately. Slightly sour with lots of booze and roasted malt. Just a little bit of coffee and oak, maybe a touch of vanilla. Some sweet dark fruit notes (raisins?) are also there.

M: Medium bodied with a low to medium carbonation.

O: Not that I ever really ever have too much faith in beers from Oklahoma, but this was a let down.

2010 vintage from coldmeat23. Bottle #585/612. Served in a snifter.

A - Tan foam settles to a thick collar, leaving behind specks of lace. Black body that is quite opaque.

S - Hefty doses of vanilla, roasted malts, chocolate, oak, dark fruit, and perhaps a hint of whiskey.

T - Taste is quite similar, with roasted malts, caramel, vanilla, and dark fruits dominating the palate. Perhaps a tad sweeter than aroma, and with negligible whiskey contribution here. Alcohol is well-hidden.

M - Medium body that is sufficient for 9% but definitely a bit light for an Imperial Stout. Slightly chewy and sticky texture, with a bit of oaky dryness in the finish. Some mild alochol warmth after a glass, but fairly tame.

D - Another pleasant Oklahoma surprise. The oak-aged element of this beer is pretty tame, but it's a tasty and competently brewed Imperial Stout. Hopefully my 2011 bottle is just as good.
