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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5513) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured thick, black and oily with a huge incredibly dark brown head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was malty and sweet with chocolate syrup, dark fruits, floral hops and leafy fruity hops - very intense. The flavor was thick rich and malty with dark fruits. Oatmeal, cocoa powder, dough, strong fruity & floral hope and red wine. Incredibly long finish of cocoa, red wine and hops. Thick, full and chewy body. Outstanding.

rondphoto (2879) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 3, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black color, brown rim head, star field of lace. Aroma of toasted malt. Taste is thick toasted malt and toffee. It grows bigger before hitting a thin wall of hops and carbonation on the swallow. Alcohol joins at the finish. Big and bold, maybe complex, but this brew is mostly about the malt.

Thick, black and oily. Beautiful. However, not great depths of taste. This i delish, but maybe not worth the praise...

illiniphil (137) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2015
From a bomber. Poured a dark ruby black with a dark brown thick head reminiscent of melted ice cream. Tastes are molasses, dark cherries, toasted malt and anise. Nice balance with no overwhelming boozy flavor. Nice but there are better RIS's out there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of molasses, dark chocolate and anise. Pours inky, oily black with a thin light brown head with no retention and minimal lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavor and dark chocolate. Finishes with molasses and anise with an extremely smooth ending with a little bit hop bitterness, but not a lot. Excellent stout!
