Made from our award-winning imperial stout, rated one of the top 50 best beers in the world in 2008. This bodacious oatmeal Russian imperial stout will crush you like no other. This is the grand-daddy of all stout styles, with an intensely deep roasted and full bodied flavor. A robust hop character adds a refreshing balance. Aged in Heaven Hill Whiskey barrels.

A good solid stout. Great aroma with chocolate and oatmeal. Very dark...I normally love the darker colors, but this poured at the end like motor oil. Still, I’d recommend it.

thedm (5164) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 4, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy dark brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was roasted malt and dark malt. The vinous semi-thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a mellow bourbon aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of roasted malt whiskey vinous toasted malt dark malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Quite nice. Lots of roast with some dark chocolate. Barrel well integrated but still shows presence. Black pour with mocha head. Some caramel. Bittersweet finish. Bottle.

coolunclesony (10) - DENMARK - AUG 19, 2015
The body is somewhere between brown and black, Very well carbonated. The taste offers lots of coffee with a hint of vanilla. Unlike many other BAs the taste isn’t dominated by the bourbon barrels,

Bule (1281) - California, USA - AUG 17, 2015
650ml bottle pours a thick black color with a little bit of head. The whiskey over powers a little. One nice malty flavors. Smooths out with some time to breathe.

Beergaard (236) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2015
Black, sticky and chewy - small roasted head. Roasted, sweet and slightly hoppy aroma - whisky, banana, liqorice, coffee. Taste of liqorice, whisky, well roasted coffee, sweet brownie, vanilla, almond and some dark fruit. Well ballanced and pretty close to brilliant.

Chyba pierwsze RiS w którym aromat zrobił na mnie większe wrażenie niż smak. Feeria zapachów którą napędza beczka po Whiskey, da się wyczuć zapachy owoców suszonych: śliwki daktyle, słodycz. W smaku już nie jest tak potężnie. Czuć alkohol i niepoukładaność. Piwo przepada nieco w zbyt słabym ciele no i wysycenie imo za duże jak na risa. Podsumowując - przypomina bardziej bardzo dobry porter bałtycki i gdyby nim było ocena byłaby wyższa o 0,5 i byłby to najlepszy baltic porter jaki w życiu piłem
