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.

Defreni (2603) - 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 (407) - 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 (1348) - 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.

BelgianBeerGal (3139) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle shared in Texas provided by Exiled...Thanks Jason. The aroma and the flavor remind me at times of slightly over-cooked toast. Also the familiar notes of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Drank lighter than expected.

(22oz bottle, courtesy of Exiled) Pours an opaque black body with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, toasted bread, caramel, and roasted malt. Flavor of roasted malt, coffee, burnt grains, some vanilla, and chocolate.

Another thanks to either Plaleslu or xmarcnolanx for sharing this one. Pours almost black with a tan head. The aroma has lots of heavy roasted malt, cocoa, raisin, soy, vanilla and very prevalent alcohol. The body is thick and chewy with subdued soft carbonation. The flavor begins with roasted malt, cocoa, alcohol and spice - I’m not picking up a whole lot else. The finish has soy, alcohol and earthy hops. This was big and rich, but didn’t light my world on fire.

Bomber shared by Rusty – thanks! Pours pitch black with little to no head. The nose is ash, charred malt, cocoa and oats. The taste is coffee, ashy cocoa, burnt oats and bakers chocolate. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Very nice!

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2010 Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Aroma is strong roasted malts and chocolate. Pours jet black with a thin brown head. Roasty taste with lots of chocolate and a hop on the end. Nice and full bodied, a little boozy. Mmm mmm, delicious!
