Beware! Beware! The Double Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout will destroy your taste buds like no other. More hops and more malt than BORIS create a super deep roasted and full bodied flavor, making this the great, great grand daddy of all stout styles.

Wow! Possibly the smoothest Imperial Stout I’ve tried yet. Poured tar black with a rich brown head. Smelled of dark roasted coffee, vanilla, and chocolate. Very creamy mouthfeel with flavors of coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, and vanilla. The lacing was like melted ice cream. Can’t wait to have this one again.

22 oz provided by Adrien. Oily black liquid leaving an slick film across the snifter. Aroma is nice dark chocolate, burnt coffee bean and layers of roasted notes.

Wow, the body of this stout is about as thick and chewy of a mouthfeel I have ever tasted. Nicely oily slick feel. The flavor is layers of sweet chocolate, roasted grain, earthy malt notes, coffee and nuts. Tons and tons of flavor with a lightly lingering anise flavor. Real nice.

Aroma: oatmeal, toasted malt, reminds me of an exceptional Australian Cappuccino. Appearance: dark dark black, medium and lasting tan head. Lacing. Taste: Dark chocolate, plum, fig, coffee, very sweet, brown sugar-ish. Tasty. Feel: mediun to low carbonation, to be expected wirh such a thick syrupy beer. Very hearty; a meal. Overall: a really nice beer. In my top 10.

alobar (2918) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Pours black like motor oil used for about 10,000 miles. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, raisin, and oak. Very complex flavor with roasted malt, raisins, coffee, chocolate, and hint of oak. Thick viscous beer. Amazing!

Bjuden på Taphouse Fat. Kraftig doft av fatkagrat alltså lite vanilj å sötma. Smakar sjukt mycket mörk choklad . Thats it.

Amazing stout...great chocolate head that quickly disappeared. Nose of roasted coffee, chocolate, and slight oakiness. Great flavor, strong mouth feel, with oily hues lapping on the sides of the glass! Tasted at Hoppin Frog ...amazing place!!
