4.05/5  rDev -4%

Poured from a bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. I had to give it a pretty rough pour to get 1 finger of dark tan head (which quickly dissipated - not surprising with ABV this high). The pour was quite black and viscous. On the nose I'm getting typical RIS aromas of char, dark fruits, coffee, and chocolate.

Full-bodied flavor with a really nice, creamy mouthfeel. One thing immediately worth nothing: this beer is quite bitter, even for a RIS. A brief bit of chocolaty sweetness is quickly overcome by strong bitter flavors. The bitterness accompanies strong roasted malt in the front of the palate and intensify as the beer's flavor develops. In the back of the palate, the bitterness is met by a warming, fairly strong hit of alcohol. The two flavors both linger well in the mouth long after swallowing.

DORIS is another outstanding stout from Hoppin' Frog. I probably won't buy this gain, but only because I prefer BORIS and Barrel-aged BORIS to DORIS. Still, fans of big, roasty stouts (and who isn't one?) should seek this one out, especially if they like bitter RISs.
