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.

This beer is HUGE! Opaque, no head. Smells spicy with coffee, chocolate, funk. Lots of thick flavors. Teryaki/soy sauce, coffee, chocolate, toffee, caramel, spices. Almost a chilli pepper flavor. Spicy, sweet, hot finish.

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!

Mjp12 (824) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2015
From bomber bottle at home, dark fruits and coffee aromas, the hops give a clean finish, making it one of the easiest drinking imperial stouts I’ve had. A great beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5602) - 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.
