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 chocolate color pour with a creamy head. Aroma of cocoa, vanilla, oats and roast. Flavors of bitter chocolate, dark toffee, roast and dark fruit. Very nice!

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Bottle and Tap notes combined. Biggest difference was the tap version had some slight alcohol noticed and green apple was apparent. Bottle was a bit better- Big deep pitch black oily pour with a nice medium dark tan head. Aroma is very sweet dark malts, toast, dark molasses, toffee, brown sugar, licorice, tar, leather, big dark chocolate and some roast and coffee. Flavor is sweet cut by a mild oat mouthfeel, roast, chocolate malts, bittersweet chocolate, cocoa powder, pine and grassy hops, slight solvent and alcohol in the end with more minty and strong sharp licorice mixed with sweet molasses. Pretty good.

Christian (11493) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Black with a firm light brown head that lasts forever. Aroma of malt, roasted grains, dried fruit, licorice, and touches of alcohol and ash. Full dark malt flavour with licorice and ash, and a hoppy finish. Strong, sweet and roasted, and with less balance than the magic of BORIS.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle. Pours a super dark, oily, slick black color that is dense with a small tan head that recedes to a small ring. Nose is lactose heavy with rich dark malt notes, malted milk chocolate, raisins and plums and big sweetness. Palate is velvety with a bitterness and an alcohol warming in the swallow. Flavor is rich in dark fruits and chocolate, raisins. The lips, tongue and molars are covered in a thick film. A very pleasant but intense drinking experience.

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Took this one to Todd’s to share for no good reason. Black with seriously dark head. Nose is lots of alcohol, sweet malt, molasses. Picking up oatmeal. Big fuzzy mouthfeel. Velvety. Rich dark sweetness with a high bitterness. Lovely.

Bottled. The aroma has chocolate, roast, some coffee and creamy vanilla. Black coloured beer with a good, brown, creamy head. The taste is sweet, has nice bitterness, good roasted coffee and chocolate malts, vanilla again. Really well bodied and pleasantly creamy mouthfeel. Great!

jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Wow! Possibly the smoothest Imperial Stout I’ve tried yet. Poured tar black with a rich brown head. Smelled of dark roasted coffee, vanilla, and chocolate. Very creamy mouthfeel with flavors of coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, and vanilla. The lacing was like melted ice cream. Can’t wait to have this one again.

Marsiblursi (3045) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2010
(Bottle) Pours super black with a small brown head. The aroma is super roasted with light oxidized notes as well as notable alcohol. Tones of dark chocolate and asphalt up front with undertones of dark/dried berries/fruits, gingerbread spices and black currant. Dark bread, milk and coffee is notable as the beer gets warmer. Lots of citrusy and earthy hops. Hits of soy and syrup. Tha flavor is light to medium sweet and near medium bitter with a light acidic on the finish. Tones of dry cocoa, earthy/spicy/light citric hops as well as some dried fruits and dark berries in the end. Dark chocolate and coffee. Almost a bit vinous. The mouthfeel is oily and fat with a dry sensation from the roast. Lingering hoppy, burned and light oxidized aftertaste. Full bodied.
