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.

750ml bottle. Thanks, Martin! Pours almost black, dark brown colour. Moderate beige head. Raisins, berries, black bread, sour notes, dark chocolate, hints of coffee. Dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty, sour notes, dry finish. Cocoa beans, chocolate, chocolate mousse. Very well balanced, slightly sour, extremely tasty imperial stout.

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, molasses, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a slight/medium dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate and molasses; ends slightly/medium bitter and dry with roasted malts, coffee and hops.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Amazing to see that the hops are still present? in this beer, bringing loads of dark fruit. Heavy roasted and a lot of coffee in the finish. Molasses are definitely the dominant aspect. Amazing appearance and palate and the flavour is not far behind; the aroma is the only ’downside’ of this beer.

Keg Half Pint at Craft 100 Festival at Craft Beer Co, Clapham, London in April 2014 - Pitch Black in colour. Good tan coloured head. Some lacing. Very very Malty; deep roast, roasty/burnt malts, lots of dark chocolate, espresso coffee, liquorice, toffee/caramel, hints of vanilla and smoke. Fruity; dark fruits, raisins. Hoppy; piney hops, very well hopped. Sweet-bitter roasty/burnt malty throughout. Thick and full bodied; quite syrupy. Great depth of roasty flavour. Enjoyed this a lot. Super Impy Stout!

No subtlety here. A big punch of chocolate, coffee and raisin sweetness in a thick deep black pour with a fine brown head. The hops don’t hang back either. As elsewhere they make the difference here between a good stout and a great stout - lovely bitter pine notes to take the edge off some of the sweetness. I still needed a couple of glasses of water to get through this though!

spechtacular (133) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Barwa czarna, ciemnobeżowa piana. Aromat mocno czekoladowy i to zarówno czekolady mlecznej jak i gorzkiej. Dodatkowo jest też paloność, kawa i suszone owoce. W smaku również potężna dawka czekolady, pojawia się też kwaskowość. Piwo bardzo gęste i wyklejające.
