After recently having had both B.O.R.I.S. and barrel-aged B.O.R.I.S., I was eager to try this one. Three great RIS in one week from Hoppin' Frog! Yeah!

This beer was incredibly dark brown, nearly opaque. I could see clarity when I poured, so I must not have stirred up the yeast sediment. It produced a one-finger head in my pint glass, medium brown in color and made of fine foam. After it subsided, a ring remained that left lacing in my glass.

Aroma was of full rich dark malts, chocolate, and dark fruits. Some hops came through in the middle, and the roasted notes drifted in at the very end.

Taste was in-freaking-CREDIBLE! Initially very hoppy and bitter, which surprised the hell out of me. How did they hop it so much it could overcome the darkness? Then came in the dark earthy malts and roasted barley flavors, and hints of milk chocolate. Aftertaste was of roasted malt overlaid with hops. Wow. This is like they tried to blend the characteristics of an IPA with a RIS, and the balance they achieved was perfect.

Mouthfeel was full, rich, chewy, and silky smooth. Somewhat oily after the swallow, it left a presence in my mouth that carried the flavor on and on.

Drinkability is EXCELLENT. This is going down well, and it is improving as it warms. It will not be difficult finishing this bottle, and I know that I am going to see if there is any left at Julio's. I want another in my cellarso I can see what happens in a year or two.
