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.

Bottle. Black with a small tan head that left a ring around the edge of the glass. Very creamy and pleasant mouth feel. Really an excellent beer with a wonderful aroma and taste of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate. Long aftertaste with some warming alcohol.

22 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is motor oil with 2 fingers of thick, deep brown head that went the distance, and left a pretty show on the glass. Nose is roasted malt, dark chocolate, barley, craisins, java, smoke, and a bit of earthy soy sauce. Taste is very similar, but there is a quite a dominant hop bitterness that unexpectedly jumps out and lasts through all stages of the sip. I didn’t pick up any of this in the nose, so it was quite a surprise! This brew is an all out assault on the pallet that doesn’t even show reprieve during the finish. I really enjoyed this one and can hardly believe the ABV is as so high, especially considering it doesn’t come off extraordinarily sweet/rich like so many do.

Loved Boris when it first came out so lets see.. Pours a coffee brown, medium foam .. . messi is sick, but barcelona are basically all divers .. . oil and light chocolate, with some bic pen ink .. . pretty good, but i like boris a bit better .. . My dental hygienist is cute. Every time I visit, I eat a whole package of Oreo cookies while waiting in the lobby. Sometimes she has to cancel the rest of the afternoon’s appointments.

JB84 (649) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2011
Pour black with dark coffee brown head not as much head as expected. Aroma coffee, chocolate, molasses, mash tun, grain, cereal, oats. Taste really roasty, burnt, strange bitterness, coffee, oatmeal, mild chocolate. MF thick full body very creamy with mild carb. Overall solid but strange bitterness/over roastiness takes away from overall experience. Thanks Wavers1.

Abio (1643) - Waasland, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2011
Pitch black beer with a dark brown head, but a small one that should hold some better. Smell and taste of chocolate, bitter, roasted malts, caramel. Slighlty sweet and bitter. Hops gets trough to the end. Nice one for sure. A bit liquorish and the alcohol is there for sure.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2011 Pours pitch black with an awesome dark head. I love this beer. It’s so smooth and easy to enjoy and drink. Wonderful maltiness. Can’t taste the 10.5% at all. Finishes dry and sweet. Really awesome. rerated on 6/12/11 - Have you ever had a Moroccan Olive. This brew reminds me of it some much...it’s so rich and malty that it’s almost savory. I love it. Bumping it up a couple of points
