Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.
BORIS pours a mahogany molasses brown, nearly black with a frothy mocha brown head.
The nose has some milk chocolate, dark chocolate, roasted malt, a bit of smoke, coffee grounds, and some vanilla. It is fairly sweet, but there is a coffee bitterness on the back end.
The flavor starts with a bit of milk chocolate and a strong roast malt character. Dark chocolate, vanilla, and some coffee add some depth to the flavor as the bitterness grows. There is a modest coffee bitterness that peaks toward the end. There is a bit of bitter chocolate and coffee in the finish.
This has a nice, thick, viscous body with a light to medium carbonation that stays out of the way. A bit sticky on the lips.
Overall this is a very nice imperial stout. The bitterness from the middle of the sip on is not my favorite, but this is very nice.
