Picked up a bomber on LetsPour.com back in early October for $23.00. No freshness date.
Beer poured black with a brown head that dissipated quickly.
Nose is roasted malts, mocha, with a light touch of whiskey.
Initial sip was warming whiskey. Taste is roasted malts, mocha, chocolate, lemon, dark fruits, with a whiskey undertone.
Mouthfeel is smooth but thinner than what i would expect from an impy stout.
Overall this is a complex delicious brew that is worth seeking out. I have had both versions of BORIS and can say they rate up there with the best i have had!

Gold Cap 2009 release acquired from pochman courtesy of BA Secret Santa 2009 so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter pint glass.
A: The beer is a very deep black color, with a very thin beige head that fades quickly and leaves a very thin lace on the glass. However the lack of head and lacing can easily be attributed to the beer’s age being 4+ years.
S: The aroma contains dark chocolate, licorice, coffee, roasted malts, oats and a faint touch of hops.
T: The taste starts out creamy with flavors of coffee and chocolate. Then a hearty roasted malt character quickly follows. There are background flavors of bourbon, licorice and dark fruit. The hops presence is very mild but brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Smooth, a little crisp and quite viscous but a bit chalky, medium-to-heavy body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, very good representation of style, this is a very nice big stout to drink for a long time however I like the original version better.
