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.

arminjewell (8606) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Pours deep pitch black with very dark tan, coffee colored head. Aroma has notes of deep dark chocolate, coffee, roast and toffee, some molasses and even a touch of dark fruit. Taste is rich, with notes of deep dark chocolate and coffee, bitter roasted malt with some slight toffee notes. Delicious, bitter imperial stout.

22 oz bottle. Really excited to try this, as I’ve heard great things about it. Pours a dark thick motor-oil black with a tiny chocolate brown head that dies immediately; it is completely opaque. A ton of smells to it, including oatmeal, chocolate, coffee, a bit of a roasted smell (might be malt), and hint of alcohol. Very intense smell to it. The taste is very similar to the smell, with a nice thickness to it that coats the mouth, and also has a great layered effect, with one taste leading to the next. An very impressive beer that definitely satisfied my expectations.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Strong ass mother fucking beer ho ass bitch. Nose of dark chocolate, soy sauce, oats, dark fruits, roast earthy bitter hops. Pours inky black with a tan head that starts creamy and settles to not much. Nice legs, viscosity, all that shit ho. Flavors of dark bitter chocolate, roast, soy sauce, perhaps a touch of leather and smoke, big hop bitterness, oats. Smooth full body, alcohol is there in the finish but the big body balances. Really nice stuff. Medium carbonation, dare I say drinkable fuck ass motherfuckers? Nice.

Gachupines (1073) - USA - JUN 3, 2011
Black with a large tan head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is strong roasted chocolate and slight coffee. Flavor is sweet with strong chocolate notes. Body is slightly roasted but finish is more sweetness, not much bitterness. Overall, quite an excellent imperial stout.

The Dan Journal #467. Blind Imperial Stout Tasting bronze medal winner. Bells Expedition got the silver, but I’ve already taken notes on that beer and I wasn’t sure of the Batch #. Anyway...taster glass from the bomber. Pours pitch with a dense brown hue. Spiraling ring of khaki head. Aromas of burnt wood and fudge. Full bodied with a dry and bitter palate with a tangy, subtle sweetness. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate and fudge with an underlying sweetness. Nice yet apparent burn and very age worthy!

Hmm a double imperial stout, sounds interesting. Pours a solid black and a very vigorous pour produced a reasonable khaki head that slowly receded. Aromas of dark roasted malts, a non descript hop character, and hints of coffee, chocolate and licorice. Not overly exciting on the aroma side. Taste is mouth-coatingly thick and sweet. Chocolate, coffee, and molasses jump out of the gate right away. Dark fruit steps up midway through. Charred coffee, a bit of ash, a touch of alcohol and hop bitterness linger on the palette long after each sip. Insanely thick body with a creamy motor oil mouth coating. Light level of carbonation. I enjoyed the hell out of this one but then again I do love me a big thick stout. If these weren’t so expensive I would drink these all the time.
