Hoppin' Frog says that B.O.R.I.S. (Bodacious Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout) the crusher, its Oatmeal-Imperial Stout, "...will crush you like no other!" Consider me crushed. This is the last of the good number of Hoppin' Frog brews I grabbed on a trip to Philadelphia a couple months back. Ohio's Hoppin' Frog beers are rating pretty high for me at this point, their one misstep being the "Golden Fraug" I reviewed a little while back. The BORIS, which is a gigantic beer in a Brew Dog style session beer's clothing is not one to be taken lightly. This is a straight up mind eraser of a beer that has a good amount of bitterness to balance out the insanity of the normal pantheon of "dark" flavors - coffee, smoke, chocolate, and the kinds of fruits you find in dried form in a typical geriatric kitchen cupboard. The body is very nice and it pours black as ink with a chocolatey looking head, not unlike another Brew Dog favorite, Oskar's Ten Fiddy, and it has the right amount of carbonation, which is key to this style. Not exactly the perfect beer for a hot summer day, but turned out to be pretty perfect for a cool summer night after a long day of work.
