Pours dark. Little bit muddy. Leaves some lacing in a pint glass. Starts little roast then gets hoppy. Had it in a bomber then in cans about month later. Having out of cans now. I do like the cascade hops but don't care for beer with sediment. My personal preference is all.

A: Poured black with good carbonation and a small white cap

S: Nose was pretty tame. Good sweetness but it was tough to get some smell off of this even after burying my nose in it.

T: Taste has lighter oats that I expected. The oats I thought played a quiter role. I got some cola notes, oats cam in medium to the end, some sweetness, booze sting, chocolate.

M: Medium/Big body, sweet, booze feel is very striking, not overpowering just right I thought for an Imperial.

O: Pretty good.

22 oz bottle. Pours black with a hige creamy tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet fudgy chocolate malt with a little roast.

The flavor is sweet chocolate malt and some coffee with a chalky roast finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice amped up oatmeal stout.

Beautiful dark color, dark tan head.
und
Smell is mild, fine, from memory, characteristic of stout, malty.

Taste is fine, not grand; not especially memorable.

Mouthfeel is appropriately rich - but seriously under-carbonated - ruins the beer. Alas.

Finish is ok, but has some off notes, cola perhaps.

Very mixed bag, this one. Undercarbonation ruins it - don't buy again.

First trip to Freemont. Glad to back in WA.
Served in a Goblet.

A - Served a very dark brown with a medium brown head that fades very quickly leaving minimal lacing on the glass.

S - Very chocolately and oats.

T - Similar to the smell, chocolates and the oats definetly come through.

D - Thinner than expected and more carbonated than most stouts.

O - Very tasty, but a bit thin and average.
