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.

Bottle courtesy of tarheels86, thanks! Lots of booziness start to finish, overwhelms the beeriness.

jake65 (2709) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Bottle: Pours an inky black with a finger of creamy brown head. Beautiful. Nose is heavy roast, coffee, chocolate, and curiously hoppy. Thick mouthful is big on the roast, bittersweet cocoa, espresso, and a decent hop presence. Top notch.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle: Pours an oily opaque black with a spotty-lacing dark tan head. Has a rich sweet dark caramel and roasty chocolate nose with some molasses and dark fruity complexity. Starts with good fullness and chewy sweet dark caramel maltiness with some rich dark chocolate complexity and light smokiness before a drier roasty slightly warming finish. A pretty complex imperial stout that should age well.

thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Řlbutikken, Cph.
Pours utterly black with a firm, small, creamy, brown head. Sweet aroma, lots of oatmeal, milky lovely chocolate, a hint of coffee. Extremely elegant and lovely. Medium, rather prickly carbonation, rather light and dry palate. Flavour is very elegant, lots of oatmeal, some mild cold coffee, good chocolate notes. Very mildly vinious, but hides the ABV well. Good hoppiness adding a citric zest overall. Really lovely and elegant.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Dark, opaque black with a thin brown head that circles the glass. Rich chocolate malt, piney hops, leather in the nose. Full-bodied, smooth and creamy, long-lasting finish. Chocolate malt, sweet, dark chocolate bitterness, alcohol warmth in the finish. Very rich, complex, and flavorful.

LoFi (1594) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle. Black with a small brown ring around the edge of the glass. Aroma: coffee, alcohol, roasted notes, dark chocolate. Taste: rum raisin, some fruity hops, espresso/dark coffee, citrus. Creamy, oily texture. This is nice, but a bit rough around the edges. Would like to taste this one after aging a year or two.

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 (3336) - 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.
