Rich and complex mix of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and a bit of caramel. Bourbon is there just enough but not as prominent as other BBA beers I've head. Rounds out with some vanilla notes. Think they hit it just right. Silky smooth and mouth coating. Really liked this one and hope to be able to find somewhere this season.

Love imperial stouts. Been sampling lots of em lately, many barrel aged, and this one stood out enough to warrant my first ever review. It poured black as ink and remarkably, the half finger of head resulting from a fast pour was almost black too! Low carbonation and lots of flavor. Think concentrated imperial stout. Think stout syrup. This is to other imperial stouts what a balsamic reduction is to balsamic vinegar.

Not at all boozy, and no bitter tannins detected puts this one high on my list over other oak BA and bourbon/whiskey BA stouts I've tried. Compared to another Hoppin' Frog offering, I had DORIS the week before and highly prefer this BA BORIS over DORIS 10 to 1, not that I didn't enjoy DORIS. I just liked BA BORIS THAT much.
