Poured bomber into 34oz mug. Darkest pour I have ever seen, jet black with a thick, dense dark brown head that doesn't go anywhere, leaving lots of lacing. Smells of chocolate, bourbon, sweet malt and coffee. Taste is bitter baking chocolate, some bourbon sweetness in the middle, and ending with a coffee bitter aftertaste that swing in way late, rounding out nicely. Insanely delicious, with one of the fullest mouthfeels I've had. This is definitely a "double oatmeal RIS". This is now one of my favorite stouts. Incredibly well-done!

Pours like oil into my pint glass. Has a nearly one finger head that is darker than any I've ever seen, including the Abyss, Darklord, and the other heavyweights.

Smells like dark chocolate and coffee. Maybe a little molassas and licorice too, but the chocolate smell is really sticking out to me right now.

This beer tastes extrodinary. Tastes more like coffee than chocolate, but it's there. Also, a little vanilla. Alcohol is present, but pleasant.

The mouthfeel is exactly what it should be for a double stout. Some carbonation, but very creamy and thick.

This beer is great! I'd put it up against Abyss, Darklord, Speedway, Expedition or Breakfast stouts any day. It may be named DORIS, but it's a stud. Put this beer in a bourbon barrel for a year and it might be the greatest stout ever!

I must say this is probably the coolest beer label Hoppin' Frog has. It just screams, big, evil beer. This poured to a 1 finger head in my nonic glass. I gave it a little rough pour because I knew the carbonation was a little low on this beer. The color of the head was a deep brown color and it lasted for a bit before dissipating to a ring around my glass.

This beer tastes AMAZING. Dark, roasted malt sweetness right up front with a hint of chocolate. The oats are there and there are hints of B.O.R.I.S. giving the illusion that this really is his evil sister. Aggressive, but so tasty. One hell of a good beer and I can't find a single thing I would want to change about it.

Appearance - a very thick motor oil pour. Glug, glug, glug. A creamy mocha head like melted ice cream slowly takes shape, with more bubbles making their slow journey up the glass. Some craggy lacing at the high water mark and some stray thin legs as well.

Aroma - heavily malted for sure. Big boozy grains, very roasty, alcohol esters, and a resiny pine interwoven through it all. Sets up with a fantastic roasty, boozy, nutty sniff.

Taste - of course, the flavors here are huge. Sweet, chewy malts, roasty and nutty. A touch of char but balanced so that the swallow doesn't go ashy or burnt. A steady alcohol warmth accompanies the delicious grain and bittersweet chocolate flavors on the swallow. The aftertaste and finish are tasty and last well. Top shelf.

Mouthfeel - thick, viscous, and oily smooth. Bespeaks the nature of the style.

Drinkability - it's been a while since I had a glass of heaven; tonight's bomber allowed for two. ;-)
