Oskar Blues

Ten Fidy Imperial Stout

Espresso black with mocha toppings. Unctuous pointillism of zygote fossilization. Carbon paper, licorice, treacle, Turkish coffee, toffee, and a sapling-meets-whiskey, cinnamon, gingerbread, dried fig, and sarsaparilla scented number. (My wife thinks this tastes of cough syrup, but it is just whiskey centric) big, charred whiskey entry with dark caramel and Christmas pudding, that turns to burnt fructose. Awesome depth and breadth! .

Stone Americano Stout

Big head of coffee foam crackles crisply changing to lighter tan as it drops to thinly reveal the black liquids below. Fun lacing of rings and loch monsters inform the ring. Delicious dark roasted aromas and something bordering on malted marshmallow. Chocolate truffle cross-sections follow. Arabica-dabra! Lovely mouthfeel with a mocha coating turns bitter in the best of ways. This is round two for this stout, and it only seems to get better! Cedar Sumatran tobacco, roasted pine nuts, toffee, leather, vanilla, and heavy espresso notes coax one into basalt with their black arts! Forest floor of mushroom and softening bark. #stonebrewery #americanostout #stout #imperialstout #beer #darkbeer #coffeestout #stoustoutstoutitallout #beers #isanybodystoutthere #oakaged — 2 years ago

Probably the best beer review I've ever read. 🍺

Thirsty Dog Brewing Company

Siberian Night Imperial Stout

Micro-mousse with pixilated lace. Nearly black, brown and opaque. Chicory coffee, near-burnt and boasting mesquite, cedar and extracted vanilla. Bitter entry softens to darkest rye. Burnt s’mores, intensely creamy, tobacco-leaf sweetness, Madagascar vanilla bean, oak tannin, burnt Boston baked bean. Throughout there is a bitter chocolate core and an over cooked-coffee, but it is not unpleasant, but a pleasant contrast to the striking creaminess. #thirstydog #imperialstout #stout #beer #dank #beerbeerbeer #abv — 3 years ago

Founder's

KBS Chocolate Coffee Stout

Hard pour if you’ve a desire to to see a head of coffee foam in dark cappuccino. It loiters a little with unctuous lacing that stick in place in globules, sporadically spaced. Dark chocolate scented, where brew, and coffee bean mix with toffee and sweet cedar, vanilla bean and nougat. Chocolate-pecan-caramel turtles amp up with mocha and espresso, a tiny pinch of black pepper, dark tobaccos, bakers chocolate, and brown sugar coated malt chocolate. Sweet initially, then revelatory as it sorts its relationships, then bitter, with pine, acanthus, chicory, walnut and pecan shell. Warm, rich, and covered in monster muck. Like a cigar smoke filled station wagon driven by a dark chocolate Santa after an Italian truck stop espresso run being slowly pulled into a tar pit. One for the ages. Happy holidays, ya filthy animals!

Oskar Blues

Ten Fidy Imperial Stout

Big, frothy, malt ball-shag carpet that hangs around like brocade. Impenetrable by light. Milk and dark chocolates vie with coffee rye, cedar and a bit of black pepper esters. Oak and tar suggest ship seams, and there is an oceanic depth, a coffee reduction, fantastically creamy with a deep caramel core. Bakers chocolate with espresso beans, coffee liqueur and burnt black currant. #oskarblues #tenfidy #imperialstout #stout #barrelaged #abv #dankbeer #darkbeer #imperial — 2 years ago

Stone Brewing Co.

Stone Americano Stout

Subtle notes of mocha waft atop a spongy cloud-like cappuccino-colored head replete with bubbles of varying size and a sycamore silhouetted lacing. Dark chocolate malt balls plus cocoa pods inform olfactorily. Bitter chocolate, black mocha, chocolate cereal, vanilla bean, burnt cinnamon stick, burnt toast urge you back to the sweeter chocolate notes as the bitterness escalates to peppercorn-esque with chicory. Not for everyone, but coffee heads will appreciate the pine tar walk off homer! #stone #stonebrewery #stout #americano #imperialstout #beer #beer — 3 years ago

Crown Valley Brewing

Imperial Pumpkin Smash Stout

Ever one of the better pumpkin offerings. Medium Chocolate brown with mere tufts of ecru that retreats to a spiderweb study against a black backdrop and minuscule pointillist’s lacing of an unctuous nature. Buttery toffee and dark candy glass with treacle and molasses mix with mocha and brownie warmth. Earmarks of vanilla bean and nutmeg with the finest dusting of just heated red chili and cooking coffee greet the nose. Initially, chili-cinnamon warmth appear then fade to espresso and bourbon-caramels. Thick malts, and licorice resins in raisin and date purées and beet and brown sugars. Vanilla is the finish with perfect Connecticut wrapped cigar flavors to make this an exceptional treat! #crownvalley #crownvalleyimperialpumpkinstout #pumpkinbeer #stout #imperialstout #beer #bier #birra #MObeer #missouribeer — 8 months ago

Hinterland Brewery

Lunatic Imperial Stout

Coffee and cream crown that dissipates atop a solid black monolith. Roasted chicory coffee, grill char, blackened fennel, rum pudding, and molasses. Flat and hard hitting with coffee and burnt fig, nutmeg, cinnamon, bitter chocolate, tar, poppyseed and valerian root. Lots of nuts here, betel, coffee, black walnut, burnt pecan. This Lunatic is nutty as a squirrel cage!#lunatic #hinterland #imperialstout #stout #beer #darkbeer #dankbeer #oakaged — 2 years ago

Clown Shoes

Hammer of the Beast Imperial Stout and Barleywine Ale

Minuscule head pools in bubbles to the side like a stagnant river then reveals a spider-eyed were-jaguar, before a Turin shroud emerges against the blackest, hopeless night. Oh crap! Did I just unleash barleywine? Well it is cold as the ice king! Magnificence of aroma with basalt, crystalline vanilla, resinous myrrh, and rich dark chocolate! Cedar, tar, burnt vanilla, nutmeg, fennel, licorice and burnt brownie. Awesome! Truly a harbinger of spirit life and neutron star collision! #clownshoes #hammerofthebeast #barleywine #imperialstout #stout #beerpocalypse #dankbeer #darkbeer #beast #beastmode — 2 years ago

MOA Brewing Company

Imperial Stout Aged in Pinot Noir Barrels

Burnt cocoanut, cinnamon rolls, praline a dark floral sweetness, burnt toast, pecan, coffee liqueur, burnt sugar, smoky bones. Vanilla bean, anise, dark chocolate. This dirty bird is too heavy for flight, and has loamy mud in its talons. Let it pick your brain for awhile! #kiwi #downunder #oakaged #stout #imperialstout — 4 years ago
