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.

"yeah, this one is nice...along the lines of a Yeti or Rasputin (bottle). A hoppy monster of an imperial stout with loads of roasted malts, chocolate, a toych of coffee, ample hop flavor and bitterness, a great thick chewy feel. Black as night (even the head was dark). I’d rate most everything an 8 1/2 if i could, but i guess i’ll have to pick and choose :)"

Marstonlad (452) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2014 Bottle at Kaisla, Helsinki. A pitch black color with a little brownish foam forming on the sides. The aroma features a rich combination of malty and hoppy elements: salted licorice, vanilla, plum and a touch of coffee. Taste is light sweet initially, later dry and medium to heavy bitter. Solid dark maltiness forms a perfect balance with strong hoppiness. The palate is full bodied and smooth; the carbonation low. A great, rich American IS.

Lukasmh (211) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 Tap. Pours pitch black, thick creamy dark brown mocca head. Aroma is loads of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Molasses and light vanilla. Taste is sweet and all same as aroma, chocolate, roasty malt, coffee with medium bitter and roasty finish. Small hint of booze. Well balanced and drinkable with surprisingly light body, despite the big flavors.

Tap at CBC 2014. Deep black in the glass, small brownish head. Malty aroma with coffee notes. Starts not as intense malty as exspected, gets stronger and stronger, earthy-malty, some woody notes. Bitter background. Nice!
