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.

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.

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 (4303) - 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.

Bottle that I shared with the guys at work. Pours a jet black with a medium sized dark tan head. Hoppy, chocolate and roast, some leather. Medium bodied, loads of roast, light chocolate. Tons of hops, chocolate, and roast. Long bitter roast finish.

Pinball (10686) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2010
Rating #4500 Black. Smooth large brown head, that settles not that large after a while. sweet aroma. coffee, oatmeal, roasted grains, sweet malts, and then a fresh flowery hoppy note. Reminds me of great divide yeti.. flavor is lots and lots of roasted grains, some bitter coffe, figs, towards the end it goes pretty dry and the end is roasted dry as well as some sweet dark chocolate. 3 years ago this would have been superfantastic but so much good imp stout out of the best brewers makes this one seem a little traditional. Looking at my BORIS review i recognize the beer, this one might be a bit more bitter and perhaps a bit more roasted, but still it is a little sweet and not entirely the best i’ve had of its kind. But pretty darn close. Probably not the beer, but my personal preference that makes me score it a little lower than what it might rightfully deserve. Palate is very nice, thick and it’s a thrill to empty this bottle on my own tonite, celebrating my 4500 rate (i handpicked the bottle for this event). Great dark fullbodied dry tasty well composed imp. stout.

Bottled. Pitch black with a deep beige head. Thick body, viscous. Vanilla and chocolate throughout. Subdued roasted components. Lovely finish. Flawlessly brewed.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2010
Flaske: Lækker duft af tørhumlingen slår en i møde fra denne kulsorte let olieret øl med et fint let brunt skumhoved. Smagen er brændt med en god del humle igen. Lakrids og en smule tobak afslutter smagen. Rigtig lækker øl.

Jaksmart (394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2010
Bottle. Pitch black pour, minimum of dark foam. Aroma is big on roast and lovely, bitter liquorice, coffee-liquor, alcohol, oak, some port, maybe. Also some sweet berries and raisins. Taste is huge and big on coffee-bitterness, subtle roast, chocolate and liquorice. Also some fruit, dark berries and some not-too-apparent hops. Low carbonation, huge body, long duration. Excellent!

Lowe1983 (1343) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Pours an extremeky thick, black color with probably the darkest, brown head I’ve seen. Niice chocolate, roasted malt aroma. Coffee, molasses, and some alcohol as well. Thick, creamy flavor with pretty much all the same stuff that was on the aroma. The alcohol finish is not as strong as I thought it would be.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 11, 2010
Opaque black pour with a nice brown rim of head. Aroma is really roasted, nice sweetness, vanilla, blue berries, chocolate, coffee, nice hops, some alcohol. Taste is immense on the coffee, dark chocolate, delicious caramel coffee and hoppy bitterness, vanilla, very nice and balancing sweetness to match the hard roast and the coffee. Drinks like velvet. This is one good beer.
