3.7/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Canned on 12/20/19. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours black with a big creamy and fluffy khaki head that sticks around leaving great thick retention and sticky frothy lacing. The aromas have a anise/black licorice along with some dark chocolate. Malts are there. The flavors follow the nose. More dark chocolate along with some dark fruits. Very mild hints of coffee. Some hops. The flavors are bittersweet, but surprisingly a little more on the sweeter side. The flavors also a sticky and syrupy vibe going. Strong malt backbone. Finishes with a subtle warmth, but it's not hot or boozy. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's fluffy, slightly creamy and velvety.

This is a solid imperial stout. Although I might not be personally crazy about the flavors, it still has alot of great qualities that can be found in the style. It's sticky, slightly sweet and drinks big without being overwhelming. The craftsmanship is on point. It's fun to drink. Not bad at all. It's probably better than my "numerical score" might indicate.

From the 750 ml bottle number 117 of 500 in a snifter via Bluejacket74----Cheers Dude!
This mighty little imperial pours a murky blackish brown with a fantastic head of light
brown foam that settles to a thick ring, thin creamy layer, and displays some excellent
sudsy lacing. Nose of subtleties with dark bakers cocoa, moderate char, dark espresso,
and subtle dark fruit with a light herbal note. Flavors hit the mark with char laden
espresso beans and dark bakers cocoa awash in dark fruit notes of blackberry and
raspberry in a moderately herbal hopped strong boozed stout that is worthy of the
Seventh Son moniker. Earthy elements show with warmth as does some black
licorice and subtle chalk notes. Excellent mouth feel; full body, medium light carbonation
with a bitter malt forward finish that is warming and rich in boozy goodness!
Balanced yet assertive.

Overall, an excellent brew from a great brewery----visit this place, they are exceptional
with one of the best coffee mild ales I have ever had to date with a whopping 3 percent
ABV. This one is the beefy big brother that should be sipped and enjoyed.

Excellence. Period!

Tried this on tap on location at the brewery.

Pours a nice, thick black color with a slight brown head retention. The aroma is comprised of earthy hops and something burnt or bittersweet. The flavor is of roasted malts, maybe slightly smoked, coffee, dark fruits, and hops. The hops gives it a rougher characteristic, but the beer remains big, tough, and "stoutly".

Nice offering here from Seventh Son.

Rich and full bodied with the slightest hint of coffee, Oubliette has a world class taste. There's a little bit of hoppiness so it's not as smooth as other Imperial Stouts, but it definitely holds it's own against some of the bigger named stouts.

I tried the Oubliette whilst participating in a tour of the Seventh Son Brewing Co. The beer was on tap, and it was as fresh as dew on the early morning grass.

750 ml bottle, 2014 edition, bottle #126 of 500. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stayed around a long time. There's also a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, dark fruit, coffee, and bittersweet and milk chocolate. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like burnt/charred malt, coffee, dark fruit, bittersweet chocolate, smoke, anise, and some earthy hops. There's also a nice bitter roasty finish, but the sweet flavors do get a bit stronger as the beer warms up more. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good imperial stout, hopefully Seventh Son will make this again next year! $10.99 a bottle.

Very roasty stout, with a bit of a tart grape flavor up front.

Tons of coffee from the malt. Very good brew, quite drinkable; quite possibly outstanding.
