WNB Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout Terrapin Beer Company 9.4% ABV

Look: pitch black, dark tan head, lots of lacing
smell: coffee, roasted malts
Taste: coffee, dark malts, roasty bitterness, warming
feel: medium body
Overall: It tastes like a good solid stout and the booze is hidden well for 9 %. There is no throat burn on this one. I don't taste oatmeal, or chocolate(as some stouts). It is a pretty good stout with a heavy punch. I would have it again. I had this one from a can in a six pack.

Very slick dark black color with a tall brown head of 3 fingers.

Aroma of Hershey's syrup, raw cookie dough, coffee grounds, light pepper, faint blood.

Flavor has a nice balance of coffee and chocolate (more on the raw cocoa nib side) but leans more towards coffee. Slight metallic presence throughout but not too bad. Some slight black pepper and fudge collide together in the background. Hot alcohol suspends the black pepper back up to the back of the throat after the swallow. A conflicted beer between delicacy and harsh acidity. It's neither a coffee lovers' beer or a chocolate lovers' beer. It's basically the worst of each, but if you like both, it's probably more than tolerable. I personally think it's a marginal-to-okay beer.

Feel is creamy and rich with malt thickness, but also has a thinning out due to hot alcohol which you can also feel. Some roast dryness appears on the finish with more alcohol heat (like icy hot in the throat).

Overall, not a bad beer, just not a great one. Highly regarded, and I can see why as some folks could really get on board with this. For me personally I'd rather have something completely chocolate or completely coffee, not bipolar between the two and not showcasing either one in its own respective spot on the palate.

Solid black color
Body is definitely above average,a creamy thick feel
Aroma is mixed grains, espresso beans,a little bakers chocolate as well as a small amount of dark fruit. There's a bitter bite that lingers a while but not unpleasant. Overall a really solid beer that I would get again, a very solid stout

Poured from can into NB Chalice, 2 finger soapy dark tan head, good retention and lacing. Jet black in the glass, poured thick and viscous looking. Smells of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste initially of chocolate and coffee, coffee shines throughout the middle of this beer, the finish is incredibly smooth, very low bitterness, but tames out any sweetness the malt brings to the party. Mouthfeel is lucious on this beer. I picked a six pack of this up back in June of 2017, and I think it was brewed some time in 2016. Had one on vacation and said I would rate it when I got home and totally forgot. Found the remaining 6 pack tucked away on a shelf and figured no coffee coming out of those beers. Well wrong there. Still real coffee forward and more mellow drinking experience than the first one that I had about a year ago. Going to put the rest of these in the fridge and grab another 6 pack next time I am in Florida

12 oz bottle at the moment but I've had this many times including both tap and can versions.
This is a bold and robust coffee stout, with a load of dark roasted, quality coffee along with substantial dark roasted grains. Medium bitterness. Full body. Light carbonation.

Received an eleven ounce pour from P. J. Whelihan's in Bethlehem Pennsylvania on February 1st 2018 right after Matt and Amanda's wedding rehearsal. Delicious and outstanding beer. Would have never guessed it to be so good after reviewing their beer menu. Will definitely try this one again!

12 oz can, bought about a year ago, stamped on the bottom with 'VINTAGE 2016 135...'

Look: Pours a very dark brown with a head that quickly dissipates. The bubbles are tiny.

Aroma: Dark malts, coffee, alcohol, perhaps chocolate and dark fruits; very nice and complex.

Taste: Very similar to the nose, which is good, yet the finish was a bit lacking.

Feel: very creamy. I can tell it is an oatmeal stout (reminds me of Great Divides Oatmeal Yeti).

Overall: I don't think this is really that much better than the standard imperial coffee stout. Based on the rating, I am a little disappointed; I don't see any reason to seek this out. Still, a very good beer.

Found this in a can at Wegmans (mixed 6 at $11)
a) Terrible name. Strong brewer. Pours jet black mounting a finger of dark tan head that slowly fades but laces little. Strong on darkness.
s) Liquor like, with a fine wood, alcohol, brandy, licorice and coffee nose.
t) Continues and expands on that dessert drink taste and feel, up there with any sipper like grande marnier, etc. It's super smooth with a dominant espresso coffee core layered with hints of dark chocolate and alcohol heat.
f) Heavy, thick, very light carbonation, nicely finished, and smooth. Never too sweet or cloying,
o) Sum is greater than its parts.
