I was just recently lamenting that I missed this even though I was likely on shelves at nearby stores earlier this year. Last weekend a buddy and I visited the brewery, and lo and behold they had about 8 bottles of D.O.R.I.S. for sale!

No freshness date, but I am assuming these are left over from their release earlier this year.

Pours THICK black, motor oil - used, and reused. Had to pour from about 6 to 8 inches up to get a small frothy head the color of black coffee with half a creamer in it. The head recedes. Awesome thick juicy legs with minimal lacing.

Smells great - dark fruits come forth first, then sweet fruit (hops), and followed by sweet chocolate and black malts. The malt is very subtle in the nose for how thick and heavy this beer is.

The taste is surprisingly mellow for the namesake and high abv. Still very hoppy - prickly on the tongue and bitter on the front of the palate. It gets sweet and fruity - unripe/bitter cherries and mild figs. The back of the palate gets another wave of hops as you swallow, and then finally, on the finish, all the malts come through. Coating the mouth, they are of bitter chocolate and blackened toast - bready and roasty. Coffee rounds it out.

Mouthfeel is extremely full bodied despite very little carbonation. Swish it around a little to expose the hop bitterness and you can chew each mouthful several times before wanting to swallow. Wonderful...

Drinkability suffers because I know this will be "too hoppy" or "too strong" etc for most people, but I find it on par with any other higher abv stout. I'll happily drink this bomber alone and wish I had bought a second one the whole time...

**Edit**
The day after drinking this I literally did feel destroyed. The beer definitely gained leverage over me quickly after my first glass.
