Default Southern Tier Imperial Oatmeal Stout

Opinions on this one stout lovers? I just picked one up after it was recommended to me. Anyone who doesn't like stouts, be warned, this is not a brew for you.

One of, if not the thickest, beers I have ever had. Described as dark as a moonless night- an apt simile. Barely detectable chocolate which I really like as I am not a fan of chocolate flavors in beer. At 11% abv this beer is not kid's stuff. A little spicy kick at the end. This beer is like a jar of molasses, but the complex, robust spiciness of the wilamette and columbus hops imparted by the wizards at Southern Tier cleanly balance out the sticky sweet gooeyness of this brew.

Not for the faint of heart. For the man who loves and can handle a tough stout, this one is a must try. Makes Guinness look like a pink cosmo.

I first had "Oat" at a bar in Syracuse NY. I was completely blown away by this beer. For the longest time my friends just kept telling me to shut up about it... then they tried it. Fantastic stuff. Pretty much everything that comes out of there is top knotch. Their IPA is delicious.

Southern Tier is one of my favorite high gravity breweries of all time. All of the big beers in the bombers are awesome.

Excellent stuff. I love that brewery.

Their imperial IPA, "Un*Earthly" is very good, and their pumpkin beer, "Pumking" is amazing. I hated fall seasonal beers until I had this one. Just awesome.

I have a bottle of the Imperial Oatmeal stout in the fridge right now calling my name, it's great stuff. I'm a huge fan of stouts and other high-gravity beers, and southern Tier does them so well. If you like chocolate stouts, their Choklat is awesome as well.

I'm about to pick up anything my local liquor store has by Southern Tier, they've been next on my list for a while and I'm thinking of doing an oatmeal stout as my second brew.
