BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

22 Ounce Bottle served in a goblet style glass

A - Very black with a minimal head and almost no lacing.

S - Well roasted coffee with some chocolate and some molasses in the background.

T - Chocolate and coffee upfront with malty sweetness in the finish. I drank it as close to the recommend 48 degrees and at that temp could hardly sense the high alcoholic strength.

M - Surprisingly "normal" as I was expecting something a little "thicker". Low carbonation makes this easy to drink.

O - This beer warrants serious respect as the 11% ABV could jump you if you're not careful. This is a very good stout and well worth a try for anyone who enjoys this style.
