First in this week’s roundup is Stoudts Fat Dog imperial oatmeal stout, which caught the taste of New Jersey writer Chris Morris.

Writing in nj.com, Morris recalls this beer as the standout pour during his weekend of celebration. With it being Independence Day and also the near-win for the US football team in their World Cup knockout game, Morris said his “weekend beer list was lengthy”, but this was “the most impressive beer by a landslide.”

With its aroma of “roasted coffee, with notes of chocolate and earthy hops” the taste begins with “roasted coffee, notes of bitter tannins, chocolate, and dark fruit.”

Morris continues: “The finish is more alcohol, a bit too much, actually (8.00% ABV). But overall, its an interesting mix of flavors without being overwhelming.

“The mouthfeel is impressive. Thick, but smooth and creamy, keeping the full body at bay.”

Imperial stout, 8%.
