4.5/5 rDev +3.4%
A- pours darker than I've ever seen a beer pour, small dark tan head fade quickly
S- very pungent, tons of dark chocolate, lots of sweet milk, lots of sweet bourbon barrel, caramel, marshmallow, some coffee
T- starts with a rich dark roasty chocolate, great bourbon flavors, vanilla, lactose, some cappacinno, some booziness but not over the top
M- absolutely coats the tongue, so thick, so so thick. It's slightly dry, but fairly smooth. Oh and very thick
O- this was awesome, ipbecause the beer is so powerful, the barrel aging adds a great dynamic. The standard version is almost too much but the bourbon barrel is perfectly complimented to this beast of a stout. Glad I got one from a friend who grabbed it in Akron.

4.33/5 rDev -0.5%
Poured from 22oz. bottle into Hoppin Frog snifter. Date of review is 2/7/14.
Appearance- The darkest black one can imagine. No light shines through whatsoever while held up to a bright light. Dark brown quarter-finger head that disappears right away. Beautiful lacing due to the hops.
Smell- Dark chocolate and coffee right up front. Then I get hops and bourbon. I hope the taste is EXACTLY like the nose.
Taste- Dark chocolate and bourbon hit me in the mouth! Then, as I had hoped, coffee and hops soon follow. So damn good!
Mouthfeel- Hoppy and thick at the same time. This beer is sweet and bitter somehow all at once.
Overall- Another grand slam from Hoppin Frog. It is little wonder why they are one of the world's best breweries. This is one of the top 15 beers I have ever had.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Thick viscous black. Small khaki head.
Smell - Licorice. Boozy chocolate and coffee roasted malts. A bit of bourbon.
Taste - Acrid smokey malts. Burnt malt. Very bitter. Some booziness. A little chocolatey.
Mouthfeel - Boozy and burnt. Very bitter.
Overall - Not impressed by this. I still haven't had a good bottle or version of Doris.
