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.

First thing I said "God that nose is wonderful." After tasting, first thing I said "This is amazing." I really believe this is the best imperial stout I’ve had next to Dark Lord. I am VERY impressed with this and am happy to learn it isn’t nearly as difficult to get as Dark Lord. I need to find a case of this and just sit on it. This one only and 6-8 months on it and I can only image how amazing it will be after a few years on it. This was a soppy sweet wonderful excuse to spend an afternoon!!!

Bottle. Pours as black as old motor oil with a firm light brown head that dissipates to a thin film. Aromas of vanilla, bourbon, dark chocolate and dark fruit. Flavors are toasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, vanilla, bourbon, toasted bread and licorice. Fruity finish--plum, and raisin--with an earthy hop bite. Deep, dark, malty, dark, and malty. Complex flavor profile. Substantial booziness. Surprisingly clean mouthfeel for such a huge beer. Delicious.

Deep inky black hue under a thin spotty dark tan head. Rich sultry roasty aroma with deep dark cocoa, boozy dark black malt, gentle smoke, and roast black coffee with a hint of charred maple. Big rich flavor that’s dark and black and roasty and toasty with huge bittersweet dark chocolate, gentle earthy coffee, and a lingering roast black malt finish with whispers of maple and char and chocolate sweetness and richness.

Uzupełnienie profilu notatki. Piana niewielka drobna zbita beżowa. Kolor czarny. Aromat ciemne słody, palonosć, czekolada, słodko alkoholowo likierowy, rasowy RIS tak właśnie pachnie :). Smak wysoka palonośc, czekolada, kawa, popiół, karmel, owoce. Słodycz wysoka ale nie przytłacza gra z palonymi nutami i wysoką goryczką, daleko w tle pozostałości chmieli amerykańskich i leśno żywiczne nuty. Alkohol wyczuwalny likierowy szlachetny leko rumowy, smaki grają, bogaty, złożony, Bardzo Dobry RIS

Very old rating found on a loose page while cleaning, possibly from 2010. Notes are from a tasting, possibly RB gathering in Grand Rapids - Black pour with a tan head. Big roast malt aroma. Coffee. Chocolate. The intense flavor is full of roast malt. It's on the sweet side with chocolate and is mellow and smooth for such a big beer. Excellent.

Sweet fruity strong bourbon aroma, black coffee color with sliver of tan head, strong bourbon flavor with chocolate, coffee, and fruit. Very tasty stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piana ciemna, ładnie zdobi szkło. W aromacie całe tony gorzkiej czekolady, ciasteczka owsiane, likier czekoladowy. W smaku jest mocno likierowo, agresywnie, jest dość odczuwalnie alkoholowe, nawet jak na 10,5%. Oczywiście jest to alk z rodzaju tych szlachetniejszych, no ale dużo tu tego jest. Gorzka czekolada na posmaku, w ogóle goryczka jest tu całkiem konkret. Nie do końca w mój gust, wolę trochę bardziej ułożone risy, ale to jest całkiem smaczne.

humpah (381) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2017
0,65l bottle from Beergium, shared, purchased in summer 2016. Pours pitch black color. Aroma of chocolate, sweetness, caramel, cocoa, roasted malts, vanilla, oa. Moderately bitter, oatmeal smooths up a bit, fullish body and gets slightly alcoholy, roasty aftertaste. Not as good as B.O.R.I.S., but still very good imperial stout.

Kiezmar (904) - Kraków, POLAND - NOV 13, 2017
Tap. Aroma - coffee, roasted malts, a bit sweet notes like vanilla. Taste is semi sweet, pralines, vanilla, cocoa and coffee. Full body, smooth. Good one.
