Terrapin Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout

My wife’s observation: “So what’s the latest motor oil you’re drinking?” That describes the look pretty well. Black as night, the head was about a finger, hung around for a while, but didn’t leave any lacing for me.
Aroma really pops with the coffee. Good coffee too, not something that’s been burning on the hot plate of your mechanic’s all day.
Pretty straight forward flavor too. More coffee, a bit of burnt malt. Searching for something else, but not coming up with anything. Only the slightest bit of alcoholic warmth at the back of my throat, which is a good thing.
Unfortunately, the burnt flavor is what lingers to me, with that little alcohol burn too. I personally couldn’t drink more than one of these at a time, that coffee is really almost overwhelming. I’d go with the Founders Breakfast Stout myself.
