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.

Pour is kind of like changing your oil, it’s thick, black, and no head. Coffee grounds, dark chocolate, alcohol are all present. Bold roasty malts and decent hop bitterness on the tongue, with a noticeable alcohol presence along the way. Big, velvety, and finishes with a long dark chocolate and alcohol aftertaste. I bet a year or so would turn this into one of the best RIS out there.

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.

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.

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 (2511) - 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.

Bottle shared at csakajo. Black colour small lacing. Nose is roasted malts, booze. Strong booze. Taste is roasted, coffee. Smooth mouthfeel.

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.
