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.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
22 oz bottle served in a Westbrook Tulip. 2011 vintage. A: Pours an opaque black color with a quick dissolving dark brown head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring and some whisps. S: Dark fruits, roasted malts and a touch of smoke are all present here. Some dark chocolate and bitter coffee beans pop up as well. T: Some nice dark fruit flavors with a slight booze kick hits up front. The booze lingers throughout and has intermingling flavors of bakers chocolate and candied sugar. The finish has a ton of semi-bitter roasted malts that a have a little sweetness kick as well and a twinge of smoke. M: Heavy bodied with a medium carbonation level. Nice mouth coating oiliness and slickness. O: Very solid flavors throughout. The booze lingers a little much and leaves a little too much sweetness. There is some deep roasted malts that counter this in the finish, but the booze seems to stick around even after that. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-13-2012

Pours a dark black with a small tan head. Aroma of semi sweet chocolate, roast nuts, coffee, caramel, earth, and vanilla. Taste follows the nose with a bit of vanilla and maybe pine in there. I didn’t really taste the alcohol much. It was a pretty full bodied beer and filling. I enjoyed this one.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a snifter and a pint glass. The head lasts longer and concaves a bit in the snifter. The rest of the appearance had a dark brown close to black color with a one finger of off white foaminess coating the sides of the glass. Light lacing graced the glass nicely. The smell had mainly a roasty coffee to chocolate and added a nice sweetness between the coffee and chocolate. The taste was sweet and roasty adding in a slight oatmeal. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with more of a sipping quality about it. This somewhat chewy beer ends up having a light pervasive harshness but still allows a decent creaminess to settle over my tongue. Overall, this was an absolutely amazing opportunity for me to try this. If I could get it again, I would.

Salmoniform (567) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark hue with creamy brown head. Aroma is coffee, barley, grassy, chocolate, caramel, ethanol. Mouthfeel is nice with full body and soft zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a nice astringent finish that extends through the finish with an ethanol essence. Overall this is a really nice brew.

Bottle. Dark brown/black pour with a fleeting kaki head. Chocolate and caramel bouquet. Big dark roasted malts and bitter chocolate notes. A tangy almost coffee like finish. Average mouthfeel with a good body.

22 oz bottle at home from notes. Pours a dark brown to black color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have dark chocolate, big roast, hints of black coffee, molasses, earthy, resiny, wood, there is big bitterness beyond what Boris offers. Alcohol is warming, but finishes strong. I would love to cellar one to see if it smooths out some, but I drink them when they are around.

Klimaet (131) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle shared with Asbjørn Skoffer (<3). Pours a pitch black with a dark brown shortlasted frothy head. Looks so good. Aromas of booze, chocolate, burned coffee, hints of oak and some soy aswell. Some black fruit sweetness. Taste is very dark, roasted coffee, chocolate, malt, sweet. Some earthy and oaky in there. Not very boozy taste at all! Has a pretty bittersweet and roasted ending.

Kveldens siste (og kanskje beste) denne fine rbhd-kvelden hos Odd Gunnar. Mine tidligere erfaringer med Hoppin’ Frogs mørke øl har alltid vært minneverdige, og det er også denne. Stor og meget balansert fylde. Now we’re talking! Håper det går bra å sette seg på sykkelen etterpå.
