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.

SpringsLicker (3374) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Opens with a tiny gasp and pours and oily, opaque black with a minimal dark tan head that dissipates immediately. Heavy smooth roast malt aroma that has slight touches of licorice and Cocoa. Very smooth and roasty. Not sweet but there is really little bitterness here either. Very nice IS. One of the better ones.

Antonio369 (89) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2016
65cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured pitch black like greasy engine oil with a small one finger tan head that disappeared quickly. Low carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, licorice, dark fruits. Taste: Oooooh that is so fingerlickin’ good! Dark chocolate, roasted espresso beans, oatmeal currant bread, Haagse Hopjes (Dutch caramel/coffee sweets), molasses, it has vinous qualities, vanilla, caramelized creme brulee, roasted bread with jam, licorice, raisins, butterscotch, roasted nuts. Absolutely divine! It’s got this enormous thick, and gloopy mouthfeel, very sticky on the palate. A FULL body with a long super ROASTED bittersweet finish. Double oatmeal it most certainly is. This is a an absolute monster of an Imperial Stout it’s almost scary. I dare anyone to experience this...WOW!

heman (481) - Tychy, POLAND - APR 13, 2016
Barwa nieprzejrzyście czarna, piana ładna, brązowa. Aromat to mieszanka nut mocno palonych i ciemnej czekolady, z niuansami ciemnych suszonych owoców i sosu sojowego. W smaku potężne, początkowo wydaje się wytrawne. Smak dominuje gęsta gorzka czekolada do picia oraz nuty mocno palonej kawy. Alkohol lekko rozgrzewa gardło.

Bule (1652) - California, USA - APR 12, 2016
23oz bottle pours a thick black color with a bit of head. Smooth chocolatey malt flavor. Intense hop flavors and some hop bitterness.

Quick3Beers (749) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2016
Pours an unctuous black from a bottle, thin brown head. Roasty chocolate aroma, flavor starts off a bitter chocolate, then gets sweeter by the sip. Thick and milkshake-y. Good beer.

Jultsu (565) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - MAR 24, 2016
BBE ?? Musta, hapokas, mitätön ja vauhdilla katoava vaahto. Tuoksu melko vahva, mutta samalla vetinen ja mitäänsanomaton. Suutuntuma tahmeaa lakritsia, kahvia, hyvää rungon yläpäätä mutta body jää aika vetiseksi, jälkeenpäin tulee mukava alkoholinpolte, tummaa marjaisaa siirappisuutta. Jäi aika vaisuksi ja mitäänsanomattomaksi, odotukset oli paljon korkeammalla. Silti nautittava kokonaisuus.

JPDIPSO (5312) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Silky, near black, pour with a brown smallish head. Roasted malts, cocoa, and herbal hops in the forefront of the aromas. Some ashes and tar in the background, but not disturbing, just another layer. Thick and chewy feel. Sweet start. A slightly over baked molasses cookie comes to mind. Hint of pine and citric zest near the finish. Finish is fairly dry. Some licorice, dried fruit and black malt bitterness in the long linger. Flavors don’t come together that well for me, but they certainly keep things interesting. Didn’t notice the alcohol until now when my stomach seems to be mildly ablaze.

rodenbach99 (3976) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Un bomber. Un liquide très foncé presque noir avec une mousse brune. Un nez de mélasse intense avec des grain rôtis. Une pointe d’alcool transperce les narines. Une bouche qui est marqué premièrement par la texture crémeuse ou huileuse de ce liquide. Les saveurs sont tout aussi intense avec de la mélasse noire, du chocolat et du café. Elle se laisse boire comme un café chaud, d’une facilité déconcertante. Difficile de faire mieux.
