Hoppin' Frogs BORIS The Crusher Oatmeal imperial Stout. Poured from a 22oz bottle on 9/14. No date on the bottle but purchased on 9/13 from the Proof Brewing bottle shop in Tallahassee, FL.
A - dark brown/black with a dark Khaki colored head on top. Dissolves quickly and leaves a heady ring around the edge.
S - lots of coffee, milk chocolate and dark fruit. No noticeable alcohol on the nose.
T - Loads of rich dark malts, milky chocolate and brown sugar oatmeal. Finishes with a licorice like qualities. Oatmeal smooths it over and finishes great.
Mouthfeel is great. Heavy and palate coating with a smooth finish. The alcohol cleans it all up for the next drink.
Overall, it's pretty awesome. Lots of nose and layers of rich flavors make this beer a great drinker. I'm really looking forward to trying D.O.R.I.S.!

Pours a dark jet black. No head, just the thinnest tan ring around the edge. No lacing.
Smells like booze. Minimal other aromas, maybe a hint of roasted malt and sweetness.
Taste is super thin, watery, mild sweetness, molasses and alcohol. Nothing lingers. Really disappointing. As it warms it get bigger and has some chocolate and coffee flavors, but still unusually thin and watery.
Thin mouthfeel. Very watery, alcohol is prevalent but not something that gets in the way.
Big let down. Maybe the most watery stout ever. Not much flavor either. I don't get what went wrong here. I sipped it, tasted little. Let it warm to room temp and still got a watery, boozy miss that only got a hair more flavor and body...

A - Pours a motor oil black with a very thin tan head.
S - Dark roasted malts and dark chocolate.
T - Lots of dark roasted malts, coffee, and bitter dark chocolate. There is a nice amount of dark fruit (cherries, raisins, plums) in the finish. ABV is not noticeable at all.
M - Heavy bodied with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a sticky finish.
O - This is a delicious Russian Imperial Stout. Highly recommended.
