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.

MN Ratebeer Winter Gathering, January 29, 2011. Courtesy of a trade with Pantanap almost a year ago. Thanks! Black color with a thin head. Aroma of dry, chalky chocolate. Appropriate as that is the dominant taste. Very dry. Light roasted barley note. Fairly thin. Honestly, just did not pick up much flavor at all. Seemed like a beastly, very uncomplicated session stout.

Thanks badgerben! A nice dark color with minimal head. A solid dry roasted oat aroma. The body is similarly parching, dry as so-lan’s mom. The finish lingers for a while, and verges on a session stout due to the dryness leaving me thirsty for more.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Sample at the 3rd Annual Coldest Day of the Year Stout Tasting on 01/22/2011: Pours sludgy black with a medium thick brown head that burns away slowly. Patchy lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and hops. Rich body with flavors of dark chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. The finish is dry and roasty with a malt aftertaste. Good beer overall.

Daytonbeer (681) - Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Pours jet black with very small brown head. Little to no lacing. Aroma is powerful. Chocolate, alcohol, soy sauce, and dark roasted malts. Taste will destroy your taste buds. Ultra dark cocao, malts, hops, and coffee. Strong and syrupy. Kind of like drinking hersey’s syrup...and who doesn’t like that.

Bov (10060) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 21, 2011
from erzbierschof.ch - pitch black coloured with a poor foam left; roasted aroma with deep notes of black chocolate, notes of soy sauce and a fair hop presence; thick and oily, robust malt backbone, a fair bitterness to meet a robust sweetness; long and solid aftertaste of chocolate, licorice and hops - a heavy and powerful dessert beer

Opaque beer out of the bottle with a small brown head that left nice lacing. Rich, sweet malt nose. Coffee, rich chocolate, brown sugar, sweet malts. This is a full flavored, rich impy stout.

mjs (4976) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2011
(Bottle, 0.65 l, at Pikkulintu) The beer poured pitch black. Its head was small and brown. Aroma had coffee, roastedness, alcohol and fresh malts. Palate was full bodied and bit on the dry side with medium carbonation. Flavours were roastedness, liquorice, coffee, malts, ash and bitterness. The long aftertaste was roasty, hoppy and bitter. The hops were a bit too hidden but despite that this beer was very good and really pleasing.

Dark chocolate color pour with a creamy head. Aroma of cocoa, vanilla, oats and roast. Flavors of bitter chocolate, dark toffee, roast and dark fruit. Very nice!

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Bottle and Tap notes combined. Biggest difference was the tap version had some slight alcohol noticed and green apple was apparent. Bottle was a bit better- Big deep pitch black oily pour with a nice medium dark tan head. Aroma is very sweet dark malts, toast, dark molasses, toffee, brown sugar, licorice, tar, leather, big dark chocolate and some roast and coffee. Flavor is sweet cut by a mild oat mouthfeel, roast, chocolate malts, bittersweet chocolate, cocoa powder, pine and grassy hops, slight solvent and alcohol in the end with more minty and strong sharp licorice mixed with sweet molasses. Pretty good.

Christian (11421) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Black with a firm light brown head that lasts forever. Aroma of malt, roasted grains, dried fruit, licorice, and touches of alcohol and ash. Full dark malt flavour with licorice and ash, and a hoppy finish. Strong, sweet and roasted, and with less balance than the magic of BORIS.
