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.

Pours thick and black with a nice fluffy dark brown head. Coffee roast and lots of milk chocolate in the aroma. Light whiffs of molasses, black licorice, and dark fruit follow. The flavor mirrors the aroma, with perhaps more dark fruit. This is full-bodied, fairly chewy, and bitter, but it also has a softer side with creamy oatmeal coating the palate. Some burnt malt and lingering roasty bitterness in the finish with a touch of sweet-sticky alcohol. This bottle is a year or so old, so I imagine the hops have mellowed a bit. Not overly aggressive but still plenty assertive. Solid beer.

Pours Black with a thin mocha head, looks thick with nice lacing. Aroma is milk chocolate, burnt black coffee, and hops. Taste is dark roasted malt, chocolate, espresso, and lots of bitter hops present in the finish. Nice chewy and creamy palate. Very good Imperial stout - not on the level of dark lord or bourbon county though.
