COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 (bottle) pours a pitch black colour with a quickly-dissipating creamy dark brown head. aroma of oranges, dark rye bread, brown sugar and vanilla, chocolate fudge, light cherries, lingonberries, espresso, toasted malts, oak and treacle, awesome complexity. flavour is mostly dark bitter chocolate and espresso, with lots of toasted malts, fudge, a medium sweetness, some soy sauce and a light cherry tartness in the roasted-bitter finish, alcohol is expertly hidden. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

Burnt, thick, creamy, and waxy on the nose. Huge palate of treacle, ash, and something green. Delicious!

On tap @ Chmielarnia Marszalkowska. Pours pitch-black, great beige head. Aroma of sweet, milky chocolate. In taste it’s extremely smooth, and again: chocolate-y and milky. Medium roastiness. Full bodied. Very good.

Bottle to glass. Pours a thick pitch black color with a nice brown head. Aroma is a potent burnt roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Same in the flavor. Giant mouthfeel with a lingering burnt roasted malts. This is a big beer! Definitely a sipper. Very nice. Would love to try the BA version.

Pours a pitch black color, with a small head, which leaves back a thin lacing. Got a complex nose of toffee and coffee, wrapped up by bready malts and hints of tobacco, as well as a matured hoppy note. This comes along with a subtle infusion of dried blackberries, while the aromas in general are defined by a great balance between toffeeish fudge and charred coffee. Got a certain heat to it with glazed malts and a sweet peak of molasses. While the beer drinks pleasantly smooth, it got a fitting, lively carbonation, which brings a decent hop dryness to the palate during the finish. Begins with bready, coffee infused malts, which got a biscuity hint to them. This gets accompanied by both, soft cream and ashy tobacco. Then a sweet note of glazed toffee, fudge and molasses gets mixed with the bready flavors, while fluffy cream is still providing a smooth mouthfeel. The finish then is defined by coffee and warming caramel, standing in perfect balance to each other, while the beer seems to be quite aggressivly hopped, as a recognizable dryness appears from the coffee, providing a gentle bitterness. Concludes with an interessting aftertaste, formed my cream and earthy, slightly slick coffee.

Bottle thanks to Jstax! Pours inky black, medium creamy dark brown head that dissipates to a ring with nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate, tobacco, lots of molasses, some anise. Flavor is medium sweet and heavy bitter, very roasty, lots of chocolate covered molasses cigarettes. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Wow, this one really does destroy your tastebuds.

Schwarz mit festem Espresso Schaum. Riecht stark nach gröstetem Espresso, schwarze Schokolade, nebst floralen Hopfen. Durch und durch vollmundig cremig-ölig mit obengenannten Aromen und guter Bittere, wenig Co2. Fulminanter, ausgewogener Abgang. Wow, was für ein Imp. Stout!
