Stone's Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout

This is Stone's limited edition, 12th anniversary beer that supposedly combines two of their recipes for an oatmeal stout with an imperial stout made with oaxacan chocolate. I was excited to try this beer since it's probably the closest mix to what I've created with my first brew. At 9.2% alc/vl it certainly carries its weight as an imperial stout. They've done a great job with the bitters and the chocolate flavor really stands out well and mixes nicely in the body. I only wish I could taste the oatmeal more distinctly, otherwise, really great.

My Beer Rating
Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout: ****
