Southern Tier Oat (Blackwater Series)

CIMG2779

This big stout is apart of the Blackwater Series of imperial stouts from Southern Tier. This one features 2-row Pale, caramel, chocolate, and black malts with oats and barley flakes. The hops include Columbus and Willamette.

Stats:
Imperial Oatmeal Stout. 11.0% ABV. New York. Limited Fall Release.

It’s black, it’s very, very dark. Nice tan head on here.

Imperial stout nose. Lots of molasses, soy sauce, roasted barley, slightly earthy, slightly nutty, and a nice vanilla component.

Full bodied mouthfeel, very velvety.

Just like the nose, lots of soy sauce, molasses, roasted flavors, a nice vanilla component again. Definitely getting some alcohol on here, giving it a rich bourbon feel.

Well-made beer. If you are a fan of imperial stouts, then this beer is for you. It’s also excellent for the price. Alcohol is actually pretty well contained, so I can’t complain much there. Admittedly, this isn’t my favorite style, as that soy sauce component that you get on most high ABV stouts doesn’t appeal to my palate very much. But if that’s not something that bothers you, then pick this beer up immediately. 91 points.
