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.

This beer pours black. I mean BLACK! No light makes it through this beer even when it is pouring out of the bottle. Once the glass is full, you are left with a glass full of dark, silky goodness with almost no head whatsoever. Swirling the beer in the glass shows good legs up the side of the glass. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and dark fruit. Flavor of dark chocolate and dark fruit with bitterness around the sides of the tongue. A bit of sour cherry on the back end of this beer, which is very thick in the mouth. This beer has a lot of flavor, but a little bit of alcohol flavor still manages to work its way through. I would have liked this beer to be a bit dryer (more coffee and chocolate forward) rather than the cherry and dark fruit being the strongest flavor, but this is still a very tasty beer.

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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2017 50cl @ tap in Wezze Krafta. Lovely dark colour with small beige head. Lovely aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, wood, plums, a touch of smokiness. Taste is heavy, chocolate, coffee, wood, a touch of vanilla. Unfortunately after a while a tons of alcohol come out. Sadly, this beer is good, but it's totally overpriced.

PhilosophyGuy (809) - Łódź, POLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Czarne z nietrwałą pianą. W aromacie dużo gorzkiej czekolady, kawy, paloności. W smaku znowuż dużo czekolady, kawy, trochę mniej paloności, trochę jakby nawet owsianką dawało od tych płatków owsianych ;). Gładkie, wytrawne, ze świetnie zakamuflowanym alkoholem. Elegancki ris po prostu.

Mortlach (2510) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 1, 2017
Bottle shared @King Arthur (Ciampino). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma color cappuccino media, abbastanza persistente. Al naso sentori di cioccolata, melassa, vaniglia, caffè, liquirizia. In bocca è dolce all'attacco, cioccolatosa, con finale leggermente caffettoso e amaro. Corpo pieno, carbonazione medio-leggera. Ottima.

Lord in heaven, so...much...BORIS. Almost double the BORIS, you could say. Just a massive, massive imperial stout, endless amounts of deep roasted malt and chocolate and anise, all on top of a intensely bitter, lasting finish. Black cherry, currants, raisins, molasses, coffee and caramel all intertwine underneath the chunky, gooey front, while the back end grows almost viciously hoppy, pine and char refusing to yield against the sticky sweetness. Pours a viscous black, giving up an impressive dark brown head with moderate lace. Beautiful impy stout aroma, chocolate and licorice and a hint of booze. No alcohol in the texture, though; this beer's creamy as hell, without a touch of burn. Great beer.

Jaceks21 (351) - Zgorzelec, POLAND - OCT 27, 2017
Dużo kawy, ciemnej czekolady, paloności. Zarówno w ustach jak i aromacie bardzo fajnie. Barwa czarna, ładny, beżowy krążek. Trochę popiołowości, alkohol leciutko wyczuwalny, fajnie skleja całość. Kolejny udany RIS z tego browaru.

kaserov (979) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 21, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (grandes burbujas y muy poca retención). Carbonatación mínima. Textura cremosa. Aroma a chocolate, vainilla, melaza, pastel, licor. Muy atractivo e intenso. Sabor a chocolate, ligero café, vanilla, melaza, licor. Dulce y algo licorosa. Colosal.
