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.

Dark red-brown, wispy brown ring. Nose is oat, barrel chocolate and oxidation, a bit toasted but thinning out. Flavor has alcohol burn, chocolate brownie and cake, light bread, and an odd nutty note. Moderate, chalky body, more oxidation through finish. Expected more from this one.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours a lovely viscous black liquid with a frothy brown head. Aroma is of roasted malt, hops, coffee, chocolate and alcohol. The flavor follows the aroma with alot of roasted malts, some almost citrussy hops, cofffee, chocolate, dark fruit, slight amount of alcohol, brown sugar and liqourice. The body is full with a nice silky and creamy mouthfeel. Overall a fantastic Imperial Stout, i would love to try more from the Hoppin’ Frog brewery!

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2010
The oily blackness poured straight in the glass settles as the little head created fades away within seconds. Tary, intensely roasted, molasses laden stout with a strong hoppy backbone leaning towards woodsy, leafy and grapefruity flavours. Pretty straightforward and rough, going straight for the black malt flavours and including a lot of sweetness on its way (licorice, molasses, nougat, fudge, burnt caramel) though it’s not that apparent considering the burnt aftertaste, warming alcohol and vocal hops. Very full bodied, oily texture, minimal carbonation. Pretty much trying to be as big as it can be, but never approaching the layered complexity of an Expedition nor the overwhelming thickness of a Dark Lord, so really, it’s mostly a strong beer that is tough to drink and a sipper, but one in a category where the competition is strong enough that I’d loook elsewhere first. The more approachable and every bit as complex Boris seems like a better companion.

Enjoyit (3479) - Vadum, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2010
Black of color with a nice brown head. An aroma of roasted malt, liqurice and salty. A flavor of roasted malt, liqurice, sticky, salty and bitter - but in the nice way.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Bottle thanks to Lagaynitasfan. Dark brown chocolate colored beer with a quickly dissipating dark brown head. Very nice nose, thick and enjoyably alcoholic..vinous, chocolaty and coffee-like..some oatmeal too...really like the nose here. Very thick brownie-like mouthfeel and flavors...quite vividly chocolaty, thick but super smooth and silky...oatmeal gives it a nice character too...very brownie-like fo sho.

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Sampled at Freetail at the La Muerta bottle share. Poured an imposing dark brown body with some ruby highlights and a ring of off-white head. Aromas of caramel/oaky sweetness, alcohol, plums, dark berries and is generally "yummy". Flavors of Medium sweetness, bittersweet cocoa, fresh coffee, alcohol, some saltyness and a soft bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with lively carbonation. This was good, but there’s too much alcohol in the flavor profile.

bottle. I shared this at the Freetail La Muerta release. Pours black with light-brown bubbles. Nose is of soy and chocolate. Taste is strong with soy and concentrated chocolate. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy, sweet with alcohol noticeable.

allfreej (552) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Bottled, poured into large snifter. Appearance: Black pour, medium brown, dense head. Terrific looking. Aroma: Bittersweet chocolate, coffee, black licorice. Taste: Roasty malt, baker’s chocolate, coffee, licorice, dark fruit, alcohol heat. Finish was dry with more alcohol heat and some hop bitterness. Palate: The alcohol really comes through. Would mellow with age, I’m sure. Overall, I enjoyed it, but it would probably be better with a couple of years in the cellar.

22oz bottle pours an oily, opaque black with a thin, brown head. Nose of dark chocolate, toasted grains, light smoke, molasses, coffee liqueur, some light fruitiness. Flavor his light smoke, coffee grounds, toasted bread, brown sugar, malty. Full bodied, a touch boozy and lightly sweet.
