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.

chinchill (1756) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2014
From a 22(?)oz bottle. Full thick body with excellent carbonation. Some alcohol evident. Rich well-balanced flavor (although not quite as rich as the extreme Prairie Pirate Noir consumed beforehand). Coffee tones especially in the aftertaste. Bitter/sweet ratio kept in balance. Best rather warm.

angel77 (849) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 23, 2014
Botella de 65 cl varias veces, la ultima en el momento en el cabanon en 18-05-2014. Color negro brillante con espuma bastante oscura y con ligeros tonos cobrizos. Bien de carbónico, espumando al agitarla en todo momento. Aromas intensos a maltas tostadas, café, cacao, chocolate y ligero amargo final muy suave. Cuerpo medio a alto con una maravilla de 10.5 vol que le dan cierta sensación de licor. Paso por boca denso y algo pastoso, sobretodo al calentar. Sabores también intensos a maltas tostadas y cacao, con algo de café y toques de maderas acabando con un muy ligero amargo algo resinoso. Una autentica maravilla de cerveza, para repetir sin duda un montón de veces mas. Muy buena.

RussianDragon (420) - - MAY 18, 2014
22 oz bottle, unknown vintage. Pours a deep still black with dark brown fading head with more legs than lacing. Aroma is roast, bitter chocolate, and booze. Flavor is full: cigar, bitter chocolate and boozy, malty finish. Mouthfeel is very thick and syrupy. The palate is truly coated. Solid.
