B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher Oatmeal-Imperial Stout

Big thanks go out to Tim (5thOhio) for the chance to have a crack at this (at the time) top 100 beer.
22 oz bomber poured into the Brasserie de l’Abbaye des Rocs chalice. Jet black body with no hint of any light penetrating the beer. Fine mocha head on top, no lace.
Standard nose for the style. Fairly light mouthfeel, not at all heavy or cloying which can happen with the style. Light roastiness like a bitterness that a coffee can give without the coffee taste.
Light bitterness in the initial tastes and it leads with an Oatmeal character too. Bitterness lingers and there is a touch in the aftertaste, but paradoxically I would not describe this beer as “bitter”. Obviously the hops are cutting in. Alcohol is well hidden.
Simple but nice RIS. Not “amazing” to me, but nevertheless very enjoyable.
