BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Southern Tier Brewing Company
New York, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Blackwater Imperial Stout Series is full of delicious dessert beers, with one exception: Oat, our Imperial Oatmeal Stout. Pouring black as night, with a mocha colored head, big dark flavors of molasses and bitter malts conspire to hide the high alcohol content.

Brewed with 2-row pale malt, oats, caramel malt, barley flakes, chocolate malt, black malt, Columbus and Willamette hops, this beer is chock-full of what a real imperial stout should be brewed with. We’re brewing it expressly for the turning seasons. It’s a great beer to kick back with on a cool fall evening, or cellar some away for when the snow starts to fly.

Review notes from 2013, 22oz bottle poured into pint glass

A- pours nearly pitch black with a foamy and bubbly khaki colored head that retains decently, leaving some short lasting lace behind

S- roasted malt, creamy oat, chocolate with a hint of coffee, trace of licorice

T- roasted malt up front with a touch of dark fruit, grainy mid-palate with a touch of chocolate and caramel, smooth oats and more chocolate on the finish

M- medium-viscous body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turn into cream on the finish

O- a nice drinkable oatmeal stout that hides the ABV pretty well. It's not up there with ST's other Blackwater stouts, but still worth a try

Bottled on 9/19/2012

A - Pours a motor oil black with a minimal tan head.

S - Roasted malts, dark chocolate, and licorice.

T - Taste is sweet roasted malts, dark chocolate, toasted oats upfront. The finish is dark coffee and a light booziness.

M - Full bodied with low carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel with a smooth finish.

O - Very enjoyable Oatmel Stout. The two years mellowed the alcohol heat considerably. A great winter sipper.
