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.

Poured black as a black hole with a small, brown, lacing head. Roasted aroma with coal, alcohol, burnt wood, strong hops. Extreme burnt notes, hoppy as hell. Was probably boiled with coal. The name destroyer doesn’t satisfy the experience. Dense, very heavy body with medium carbonation. Oily, creamy, velvety texture. As complex as it gets. Don’t miss it! Truly outstanding.

22oz bomber poured into a snifter. Pours black with a thin ring of dark brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, alcohol, coffee, chocolate and caramel. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Alcohol, coffee, chocolate, plums and other dark fruits and some caramel with a little herbal hops in the finish. Full bodied with a thick creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a very long, bitter finish. Overall, awesome. I could happily drink this every day.

Aroma muy intenso, destacan el cacao y licor. Ideal para beber cuando hace frío para entrar en calor. Simplemente, impresionante.

Aroma is strong and smoky with tones of unsweet chocolate and quality coffee, along with more than a hint of anchovies. It pours - woo-wee, utterly black with a thick, dark tan, fine-bubbled head that hangs around - there’s no way they could improve on that, Dixie Darlin’! Flavor is WOW! Semi-sweet chocolate, quality roast coffee, hints of molasses and miso, even a touch of hops and a smidgen of anchovies. Hey, I like anchovies. Texture is fizzy, oily and thick, leaving a nice heavy mocha finish. This one is just a shade or two off perfection - at least in my book. OK, I’m prejudiced in favor of stouts and porters, but that’s just the way I iz.

Seguramente una experiencia, despues de boris solo doris puede destroyer... Al verterla ya se nota el espesor del vino dulce, espesisima, los aromas son tipico de caffe y tostado y asado pero degustandola poco a poco van saliendo los aromas de lupulo, citrico y a mas erba. el palato es largo y intenso, para compartir una botella de 65 en 5 personas... sino doris the destroyer...

An amazing imperial stout. Loads of flavor, great body, and it has the best reddy brown head. I need to get more to hide in my basement for a rainy day.

Amazing Imperial Stout. Super rich in aroma, appearance and taste. Thick, coffee, chocolate...strong alcohol taste and dry hoppy aftertaste.

Sin duda, la mejor cerveza stout que he probado. El aroma es muy achocolatado, ligeramente especiado y con una dulzura que puede recordar a un vino dulce (o vino de los montes de Málaga). La apariencia es muy bonita, oscura y con una leve capa de espuma color rojizo muy oscuro. Poco gas, aunque para mi gusto era el adecuado. Es una cerveza que perdura el sabor en el paladar de una manera única. Para beber muy despacio, yo recomendaría compartir la botella entre 2 o 3 personas como mucho.

Bottle from Highland Package. Pours dark motor oil black with thin tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee with hits of chocolate and vanilla. Taste of coffee, dark chocolate and a bitter aftertaste. This beer is a new favorite. A must try for anyone who likes dark beer.
