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.

Pour is kind of like changing your oil, it’s thick, black, and no head. Coffee grounds, dark chocolate, alcohol are all present. Bold roasty malts and decent hop bitterness on the tongue, with a noticeable alcohol presence along the way. Big, velvety, and finishes with a long dark chocolate and alcohol aftertaste. I bet a year or so would turn this into one of the best RIS out there.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized very dark brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and a fair lacing. The nice aroma was vinous roasted malt sweet dark chocolate and dark malt. The vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong roasted malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of black malt roasted malt vinous burnt malt chocolate brown malt and dark malt. A wonderful best in class brew.

Not barrel aged but very close to the same sort of flavors. Lots of vanilla, burnt sugar and dark chocolate. Lots of nice bold hops in the back end. First time with this brewery and I’m looking forward to the next.

Sugary, so for the imperial you taste it, but it is all sugar. Molasses and brown sugars. Not thick and syrupy but medium body. Coats the tongue with sweet. Get me a water. Burnt caramel aroma. Dark color but no head or carbonation. Tap

Dégustée chez Janick en compagnie de Stéphane, Roger et Marc-André. Merci messieurs pour cette dégustation! Cette bouteille a succédé à la BORIS qui se veut la petite soeur de celle-ci. Noire, opaque, dense, huileuse, grasse... je l’aime déjà! Beaucoup plus intense que la BORIS, celle-ci est à mon goût personnel beaucoup plus fidèle au style RIS: de profonds arômes de réglisse noire et de fumée. Liquoreuse, la bière est collante dans ma bouche et sur mes lèvres. Les saveurs de grains brûlés, de caramel, de café, de chocolat, d’alcool brun et de feu de bois emplissent ma bouche émerveillée. C’est puissant et autoritaire, mais combien balancé! Longue finale mi amère mi sucrée, je suis ici devant une bière qui me plaît vraiment!
