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.

Foffern (1685) - Bodř, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle at home. Three years old. Has a pitch black color with a small brown head. Aroma of chocolate, truffles, oak, coffee, piney hops, biscuit and leather. The flavor starts with ash, dried fruit, dark chocolate, coffee, pine and ends very roasted in the aftertaste. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, full-bodies and a medium bitterness. Roasted ale but still some hops after years with aging.
