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; Pour is jet black with a modest tannish head. Big roasted barley and chocolate malt aromas on the nose. After the punch to the face, I’m reminded what a big oatmeal brew can provide. An amazing collection of roasted coffee, barley, hops, chocolate, toffee, and dark fruits - Sweet, Bitter, and pretty smooth really. Doris wins.

Bomber,thanks Justin. Poured an oily jet black. Nose is oats,hops and roasted Malts. Big and complex,smooth mouthful with a hint of booze running through out. Lots of dark chocolate and hops,with hints of dark fruit. The abv adds a hint of sweetness but it’s mostly underlying. The roasted Malts and hops really carry the finish.

Poured into Snifter, Black & Viscous, with a small brown head that recedes quickly. Aromas of rich roasted malt and huge amounts of dark chocolate, molasses, with a small bit of alcohol. Taste is of dark chocolate with Sweet malty molasses. Sweeter on the front, slightly bitter on the finish. One of the fullest bodied beers I have ever had. Low carbonation but it fits well. A nice hoppy balance is noticeable when it warms. A small bit of alcohol burning with the finish, but well hidden overall. Very creamy and delicious. Hoppin Frog ROCKS.

Found this at Jessup Beverage Center, Jessup, PA. The only thing a bit odd is there is a slight astringent tone in the finish, otherwise, its a chewy malty sweet oatmeal chocolate and dark delicacy with hints of citrus hops but very well balanced and flavorful at once.

Strykzone (5901) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. A motor oil pour and a tiny head. Espresso aroma with brown sugar. Huge roasted notes along with chocolate. There might have been nine pounds of hops but they were so overwhelmed to add light bitterness. This one is big, bold, brassy, and so very good.

bottle. one of the thickest, blackest beers i’ve poured. really viscous and oily with a small brown head. aroma of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. flavor is robust black malt with dark chocolate and toasted cookie. notes of vanilla as it warms. some lingering hop bitterness, but malts win here. palate is oily and full. i would prefer a little more sweetness but you can’t deny how massive this beer is.

bomber at dak’s on 7/29/10. black pour with dark reddish at the edges and a spongy small tan head. big fudge-y nose... vanilla, ashy roast, florals (alcohol and hops), some woodiness, tar and prunes. smooth, rich oatmeal-y thick body coats the tongue. heavy flavor... vanilla, chocolate and cocoa/dark choco tartness, toasty nuts/coffee, mild smoke and an ashiness on the finish. 8/4/8/4/16+

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Rich smoky roasted malt nose, lots of molasses and prunes, and dark chocolate. Taste is very sweet, moderately bitter, lots of milk chocolate, light brown sugar, molasses, light prune and raisin. It’s a bit brash and green, but decent.

pitch black and viscous with large tan head. nose of citrus hops (surprising since it has been aged a year) and of roasted malt. firm bitterness before low crystal malt before some chocolate malt with the roasted then following. some citrus hop flavor is noted. the alcohol provides wonderful depth intermixing with the chocolate malt and the thick mouthfeel leaving a milk like finish to the beer. a beautiful fermentation profile provides little residual sweetness resulting in an amazingly drinkable brew that is impressively conceived and amazingly brewed. A premier imperial stout and without a side by side taste test I cant imagine a better one

(beer tasting @ Monty’s Krown - Rochester, NY: bottle - 22 oz) Another of the highlights of the tasting. Slick black and oily pour with a thick tan head. Huge roasted malt aroma. Lots of dark malts and chocolate malts. Some light sweetness from the oatmeal. Thick and rich roasted flavor at the start with tons of roasted black malts and toasted chocolate and cocoa. Coffee flavors and a light creamy sweetness coming up from the oatmeal. Very thick and heavy.
