11.0% ABV. 2012 vintage drawn 06/20/14. Draft drawn into a shaker pint. I have to admit that by this time of the year (June) the last thing I want is another stout. However, my local proprietor strongly hinted that I would regret not having tried this one. In hindsight I admit he was right! Draft drawn into a shaker pint. Drew an opaque, dark brown with no detectable highlights. Arrived with a creamy, mocha-colored, 1/2-finger head that slowly settled to a foamy collar. Lacing was minimal, a victim of the imposing ABV. Wonderful, complex nose of oatmeal, warm Toll House cookie dough, toffee and dark, stone fruits. Taste of oatmeal, raisins, woody vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and just the merest suggestion of booze. Creamy, sensuous mouthfeel. A brew to sip and savor!
The taste was lightly sweet and very roasty with a good malt backbone and had hints of oats, chocolate and a mild fruity presence at first, and then became smooth and creamy with a light coffee presence, overall lacks the complexity to be the best.
A dark fantastic sipper. Dark and strong. Great mouthfeel delivered by the oats. Great aromatics, a little boozy and great bitterness.
One of the best oatmeal stouts ever! I like this one the most out of all the imperial stouts they have.
For my money oat is the best of the Southern Tier Blackwater series I've been getting a case every year for the last couple
Heavy beer. A slow super that its meant for a full stomach. I don't remember much of the evening with this beer
One of the best examples of an Oatmeal Stout I've tried. Had to give 4 pint rating on drinkability only due to the high alcohol.
surprisingly has a kick of spice making it one of the more unique oatmeal stouts i've had
Would like to try this one again. Really enjoyed this with a meal.
One of the beat oatmeal stouts i have ever had
Got this one in a trade and let it sit for a year or so. It has a strong flavor profile and would not be able to drink more than one or two of these in a sitting.
Pours jet black and the oats were front and center for me. The high ABV wasnt something I noticed at all though.
This poured jet black into my glass and left a nice thick foamy head that drizzled lace down the glass in trellising patterns as it moved down the glass with each Thursday night football sip. Smelled heavy of chocolate and malts with hints of hop and liquorice. took my first sip of this guy as the oily slick beer slid over my tongue i tasted smooth dark chocolate with esspresso bean and excellent dark roast malts. little pieces of dark fruit and liquorice came with extra sips. as it warmed caramel came out a bit more. this just tastes like a RIS with some oatmeal stout poured into it I think. the beer was a bit boozy, but still very tasty. would love it with a nice creamy cows milk cheese or with a dessert that isn’t overly sweet. creme brulee, or panna cotta. Well done Southern Tier, can’t wait to try the Creme Brulee i just picked up and hopefully Choklat when it gets released here soon.
Sweet and tar-like consistency that lingers after it leaves the pallet. Goes down very easy. Highly recommended!
Best goat I ever had...I mean oat.
This is an incredibly dark, heavy stout. The aroma is overwhelmingly oats/grain (almost wort). It's got a very strong taste and the 11% alcohol is front and center.
One of the best beers I've ever tried.
The oats come through in the aroma along with some floral notes. A smooth start with a bit of bite at the end. I've tasted better oatmeal stouts but this is definitely a good beer.
It smelled of oatmeal, coffee and some floral notes.
It tasted of bitter dark chocolate and oats. There were toffee and molasses flavors, too. Despite the high ABV, no boozy or alcohol flavors.
