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.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours jet black with a creamy chocolate head that left some nice lacing. Big nose full of cocoa, coffee, roasted malts and light piny hops. Big chocolaty and creamy finish. This beer was very close to being overkill, but they pulled it off.

Elwood (3092) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Julios Liquors.
Aroma: The nose is full of roasty notes and a touch of alcohol. There are also notes of dark fruit, tobacco. As the beer warms, some raisin, molasses, and dark brown sugar come out.
Appearance: It pours pitch black with a small, rocky, dark brown head. The head retention is pretty good given the high alcohol content.
Taste: It’s a little hot with alcohol, has lots of roastiness, a little oat and nuttiness on the undercurrent, dark fruit, and a very light dark chocolate note. The high malt content battles against the the high ABV making it surprisingly even.
Palate: A little syrupy on the tongue with low carbonation leading to a slightly lingering bitter finish. I was really surprised how clean it finished given all it has going on.
Overall: This is one big boozy brew that has layers of complex flavor. The beer continues to evolve as you drink it. Do yourself a favor and make sure you get a full glass of this beautiful beast. Better yet, make it two. You will certainly be rewarded.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 13, 2010
Poured like an iodine oil spill, staining the glass yellow wherever it touched. Nose was loaded with roasty character, hints of coffee and chocolate. Taste was just over the top, hot with booze, and tons of huge clashing flavors, not one stuck out for me, the roasty qualities were so strong it almost bordered on a charred flavor, the chocolate was over the top dark bitter chocolate, it was just too much at once.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2010
Sample at SBWF 2010. Pitch black with a smal brown head. Deep, heavy flavours, packing a big punch against your tastebuds. Dark fruitiness, coffee and light bourbon, with some hops backing it all up and then a nice light warming sensation in the throat.

Bomber, Fish&Beer, Copenhagen.
Deep Black, it looks like rock oil, small but compact and creamy brown head. Total eclipse... Thick aroma with tons of hop and burnt oak. Deep roasted grains, dark chocolate and dark fruits, plum and raisins, caramell and molasses, pitch. You hasn"t got any chance to avoid the aroma...Huge density, rock-oil consistance and a taste cunami with a wide flavor profile: burnt wood, deep roasted grains, caramel and toffee, tobacco and dark chocolate and a huge amount of resiny-dark fruity hop. After a while when the beer warms up the flavor bomb melts down and complexity rules the character. Superb one, yes, this is a destroyer....

olsvammel (3034) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2010
Bottle at SBWF 2010 (Brill). It poured a thick dark black reddish liquid. Flavour of chocolate, coffee and a bunch of other flavours. A complex and very interesting beer. Very intense flavour. Nice, I want more of this.

omhper (19336) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2010
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Very black, small head. Rich aroma of chocolate and tar. Massive bodied with dense mouthfeel and concentrated flavours of cocoa, butter and tar. The combination of very sweet and extremely roasted is a bad one, making it feel inky and harsh.

drfabulous (3955) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 5, 2010
22 ounce from Bruisin Ales, I think. Chocolate and creamy. Lots of coffee in taste and aroma. A strong beer. I’m getting a hoppy stout, but I’m also drinking this after it’s been a cold basement for a few months...was it hoppier to begin with? Very nice.

Countbeer (4397) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 Bottle: Small brown foamy head turns into small lacing. Color is beautiful: black pour, black body, like motor oil. Smell coffee, burnt malts, liquorice, and hint of chocolate and sweets. Taste is viscous mouthfeel with a full dark body: strong coffee taste, hint of chocolate, liquorice, hops (flowerish taste) and a bit mealy with just a hint of brown/roasted sugars. Long staying full aftertaste of coffee, bitter and a hint of roasted/burnt malts. Beautiful balanced, low carbo, full body. Nicely bitter aftertaste. Just awesome.
