The nose is huge on whiskey tones with some chocolate, malt and alcohol soaked dark fruit.

The flavors are boozy and need warmth. After it opens up the whiskey tones stay prominent. It never tastes like bourbon but more a Canadian whiskey. Chocolate malts with milk chocolate stand out as a get a little coffee bean. I'm a huge fan of the genre and Hoppin Frog but this one seemed to be a bit too one dimensional.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter
A: Pitch black with a brown one-finger head that slowly settles
S: Coffee, molasses, bourbon, chocolate and tons of roasted malt
T: Matches the nose though the sweet molasses/chocolate/bourbon comes first then the the coffee/malt
M: Full-bodied, smooth with balanced bitterness; a touch of alcohol but given the bourbon notes it fits in well
O: Complex yet balanced, dark/tasty. The barrel aging adds complexity and smooths out the bitterness the un-aged DORIS has

Pour is jet black with a dark mocha head. Nose is strong bourbon with notes of booze and lighter wood. Heavy malts, notes of brown sugar and caramel, hints of chocolate and a touch of cake. Taste is much sweeter, bourbon isn't as strong and chocolate cake is mixed with berry sugar. Body is heavy and a touch syrupy, carbonation and good with a dry finish.
