Imbibe Oatmeal Stout
Jason: full-bodied with lower abv, it was made to drink many.
Al: VERY GOOD for people and cats.
Bob: VERY GOOD, balanced, no aftertaste
Chris: VERY GOOD. Oats for breakfast and dinner
Bear Republic Black Stout
Jason: VERY GOOD hits its goal of bold, rich, roasty.
Al: NOT FOR ME. Overpowering flavor, too much aftertaste
Bob: GOOD pretty well-balanced,
Chris: Delivers what it promises, but it’s NOT FOR ME
Imbibe Imperial Oatmeal Aged In Woodford Reserve Whiskey Barrels
Jason: rich, creamy, little fiery for a 10-percenter
Al: EXCELLENT extra-base hit
Bob: GOOD/VERY GOOD balanced, smooth, I’m not a huge whiskey guy, but I appreciate the effort
Chris: EXCELLENT. I’m borrowing one of Al’s thumbs to give a three thumbs up
Imbibe Pecan Oatmeal Barrel-Aged
Jason: run through a beer engine, blended
Al: GOOD but not for non-pecan lovers
Bob: GOOD hats off for this effort, but as a non-pecan guy
Chris: VERY GOOD. I like pie.
Dugges Coffee Vanilla Black
Jason: GOOD: Big and boozy, not subtle and 13.6 percent.
Al: FAIR I like the vanilla notes. Hard to get past that smell. Knocks you back
Bob: GOOD/VERY GOOD Lopsided. I like the vanilla, may be the best vanilla notes to date. So boozy on the back end.
Chris: FAIR. Vanilla saves it. The smell is completely different from the taste.
