Poured to a snifter.
Pours a deep rich black with a thick dark tan head. Very nice lacing.
Very nice aroma. Dark roasted malt, coffee, and oatmeal are all upfront. There is also a nice little bit of sweetness in there.
Great rich coffee flavors, the oatmeal really gives this guy has a big full body. There is a little dark sweet fruit in there to.
As noted before very full body, the carbonation is on the higher side of medium.
This is a very nice stout, very well balanced with great flavors. I would love to try this with a cocoa nibs treatment!

big thanks to jmpizzo for this bottle.

12oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. "vintage 2011"

pours out a rich oily black, the last couple drops kind of beaded around on top of the head before falling into the beer (oils from the coffee). formed a dark mocha colored head that stayed a thick ring and some patchy foam. just tiny bits of lace.

again, the more it warms, the more that great espresso bean aroma comes out. rich roasted malts, dark fruits, and hints of oatmeal behind the coffee.

intially this is a bit metallic, that fades the more it warms, but i dont remember that in the 2010. other than that, pretty much the same taste. lots of wonderful espresso like coffee at the forefront. dark fruits, deep, rich roasted malts, only traces of molasses, but still a bit of that warming booze. more creamy oatmeal as it warms.

more carbonated than the 2010, makes the body appear a little weaker. creamy oatmeal feel.

this definatly has its differences than the 2010 version, but luckily that great coffee aroma and flavor is just as good if not a tiny bit better.
4/4.5/4.5/4/4 = 4.33

huge thanks to mizzouguy for the bottle, recieved in the noob bif round 6

12oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. "seasonal: 2010"

when pouring into the glass it appeared pretty much flat only forming a very small dark mocha brown colored head that quickly turned into a thin ring. opaque pitch black body. no lace.

the more it warms, the more this awesome deep roasted expresso coffee bean aroma becomes apparent. also a dark fruity smell blends so nicely with the coffee. a hint of an oatmeal stout base.

awesome taste, a big dark fruity, slightly roasty imperial stout blends with a very nice expresso coffee bean flavor. some rich molasses and warming booze. good stuff.

pretty big feel, finishes roasty, chocolaty bitter, minimal carbonation.

awesome coffee beer, even for a 2010. this fresh would prolly blow me away. this is right up there with founders breakfast stout for me. awesome coffee bean flavor stands out, yet stays in check by the rich stout, love it!

Re-review after I picked up a fresh four pack recently.

A: This stout pours a nearly black shade, with a 1/2" beige head that leaves some decent lacing in its wake.

S: Huge, fresh coffee aroma detectable from several feet away.

T: Wonderful flavor. The coffee is extremely forward, which I find delightful. The beer is quite simple in its approach. Bold, fresh coffee, followed by some roasted malt, with a hint of chocolate. The finish is where the oatmeal shines through, imparting a delicate, palate coating feel. Well balanced and easy to drink.

M: Medium in body, with a solid carbonation level. Smooth feel, with virtually no alcohol presence.

O: A terrific example of a coffee stout. Highly recommended.

Thanks Matt!

Poured into a snifter. Thick rich espresso colored head. Head sticks around for quite a while.

Massive coffee aromas! Smells like a fresh creamy double latte with an alcoholic boost.

Flavors are every bit as exciting as the aroma. Roasted java, espresso powder, with a silky creaminess imparted by the oatmeal that enhances the mouthfeel. Like liquid tiramisu. Roasted flavors are kept in check by the oatmeal and serve to temper any perceived astringency.

Overall, an excellent coffee beer, and one that I'll definitely seek out in the future!
