4.12/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

$ 12.99/bomber at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Undated bottle at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma roasted malt, coffee, chocolate
Head average (4 cm), dark brown, frothy, diminishing to a 2 mm ring and broken layer
Lacing OK – partial rings and atolls of very small to small bubbles
Body dark brown/black, opaque
Flavor of coffee and chocolate; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium to full, creamy, soft carbonation

Although the alcohol can be neither smelled nor tasted, its presence is instantly noted in stomach warming. This beer has an above average appearance and aroma, but the flavor is a slight let down; the chocolate and coffee flavors are quickly diminished. (693 characters)

4.18/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours thick viscous dark black in color with a thin tan head.

Smell has aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, lots of oaky wood aromas and some hints of vanilla licorice and bourbon.

Taste has rich moderately sweet roasted chocolate malt forward with a big wood presence that follows with notes of vanilla. Lots of booze,charcoal and possibly hop bitterness in the end.

Mouthfeel is super thick with low carbonation leading to this coating the mouth with loads of booze, and charred woody bitterness. (505 characters)

4.04/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Undated bottle (I've had it for at least 2 months) into a snifter at fridge temp; allowed to warm 20 mins before drinking.

Look: pours very dark--as much like used motor oil as anything I've seen. Viscous, light-devouring ultra-dark brown. Very very tiny, cinnamon-colored head that quickly dissipates, leaving just a ring along the edge. Moderate amount of carb evident.

Smell: roasty, but with bright notes reminiscent of lemongrass. As it warms, rich homemade fudge asserts itself, along with a mild booziness. Also some fig/raisin in the background. The alcoholic version of Willy Wonka has a river that smells like this flowing through his factory.

Taste: sadly, the first (and strongest) taste is very metallic. It's like having a mouthful of pennies. This is a flavor I get in many (but not all); I generally associate it with lower quality, but given the solidness of this beer in all other categories, maybe it's just an ingredient or brewing technique that doesn't agree with me. There's also ample roast, some cherry, a bit of chocolate, and very mild hops. Obviously, this beer is at least 2-3 months old (and being from a trade, maybe much more), so whatever hops were there fresh are pretty faded at this point (which suits my tastes for stouts better--hops belong in CDAs).

Feel: really nice. Fairly thick, low but "correct" carbonation, straddles the line between dry and juicy.

Overall: I'm going to chalk up the taste to either a quirk of my palate, or else a result of any mishandling/incorrect storage that may have gone on before the bottle made it into my hands. Everything else about this beer attests to the skill of the brewer. It's also worth pointing out that I've recently discovered I really don't care for most non-BA American stouts, so even with the off taste I got, this one compares favorably against that cohort. (1,853 characters)

2.36/5  rDev -43.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Inky pitch black. Nice mocha head. Reduces to faint wisps, but stains the glass.

Smell - Lots of black patent malt. Deep chocolate. Boozy.

Taste - Immediate booze and chocolate. Then it has this intense peppery flavor that is quite bad. Very bitter. Harsh and metallic.

Mouthfeel - Harsh alcohol. Oxidized, I think, but there's no age information on the bottle. Medium heavy.

Overall - No idea what is causing that terrible flavor, but it makes it undrinkable. They way I'd imagine rust would taste. (575 characters)

4.74/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Look: Jet black. Pours with a 1 finger head, dark caramel/reddish in color. The head fades quickly, leaving a foaming ring around the edge.

Smell: Chocolates, cherry, dessert. Just very sweet. Hints of brown sugar.

Taste: Much inline with the smell. It has a very wooden finish, as if it was oak aged. Maybe a bit hoppy as well, which I wasn't expecting.

Feel: This is absolutely amazing. Very full bodied. Very creamy and thick.

Overall: This is a great brew, however, I will say, I prefer Boris over Doris. I had Boris first and wanted to give Doris a try. While it's good, I feel as if they tried to make it better than Boris, and in my opinion, wasn't successful. Still a great beer. (695 characters)

From a 22(?)oz bottle.
Feel: Full thick body with excellent carbonation. Some alcohol evident.

Rich well-balanced flavor (although not quite as rich as the extreme Prairie Pirate Noir consumed beforehand). Bitter/sweet ratio kept in balance. Some coffee, especially in the aftertaste. (286 characters)

S - Lots of chocolate, roasted malts, oats.

T - Oats, raisins, chocolate, dry malts.

D - Heavy body with good carbonation.

O - 2011 or 2012, Decent, a touch oxidized. (270 characters)

4.27/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours an intense black color with no head except for a few bubbles that stick to the side of the glass. The aroma is fresh hops, dark chocolate brownies and some lightly roasted coffee super intriguing. Bright and clean hops blend seamlessly with a dark toasty chocolate taste. The mouth feel is smooth as silk. The hops linger in my mouth but with moderate bitterness that plays well on the sweet notes of chocolate and mocha. Amazingly dank stout, lip smacking good. (468 characters)

4.58/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Look: Syrupy pour with small, very thick, creamy and dark, chocolaty head. Has relatively fast, but smooth retention, leaves a very thick, thin layer that mostly diminishes over time - very little lacing (but good, fine when the layer was still present) as a consequence. Haven't seen many as dark as this one, pitch black with brown hue.

Smell: Wonderful, the first thing I've noticed is the freshness from fruity/herbal hops and light dark wood berries sourness. Amounts of hops detected are surprising. The berries are accompanied by black currant, dry raisins and figs. All this makes a very fresh feeling. Then there is the deep roast, chocolate is dominant (mix of milk and dark) and mocha. A strong sweet backbone. Smell is full and fat but not stuffy - good counterbalance is made with fresh hops and berry esters. Also some faint alcohol crawls out when the beer warms up.

Taste: Pleasant medium sweetness with strong milk chocolate and mocha notes, that goes into even stronger dark roasted dynamics that end up in the medium-high bitterness. The bitter part starts with roast, chocolate notes and at the end goes dark roasted coffee, burned toast with light to medium hops to keep the harmony going - these make up a pleasant after-taste. In between there are still present light dark berry and currant sour notes with some dry fruits lingering on your lips. Strong hops come back every time you burp. Hint of alcohol present towards the end.

Mouthfeel: Full medium-heavy body, creamy enough, but not the fattest stout out there. Low-medium carbonation, suiting. Very light warming from the alcohol.

Overall: A massive one, good counterbalance with hops to the big dark malt character full of deep roast. Can't wait to get my hands on the barrel-aged one. (1,773 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Pours pitch black with a tiny dark brown head that almost instantly vanishes. No lacing.

Rich sweet coffee, chocolate, leathery, bit of dark fruit. Very sweet and smells so amazing.

MMM. Taste follows smell. Chocolatey coffeelike sweetness. So amazing.

Thick, slick, and full. Warming alcohol aftertaste. Almost no carbonation.

This is one of my favorite stouts ever. Possibly the best stout out there. At least as far as what's available to me. Simply amazing. Near perfect stout. (486 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

No apparent date on the bottle.

Beer is jet black with a small tan head. Head gone quickly.

The nose contains chocolate, molasses, roasted malt and a bit of dark fruit. Nice smell.

Flavour is also very good. Chocolate is the main flavour, but there is anise, molasses and roasted malt as well. Relatively sweet.

Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Quite slick and sticky.

Overall, very good. Perhaps too sweet but still very nice. (438 characters)

4.29/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours nearly black with a barely-there cap of brown foam. Seriously, this baby looks like tar flowing out of the bottle. I haven't seen a stout this dark since Founders' imperial. Lacing is nonexistent. The aroma is a fairly even blend of molasses, dark chocolate, and toasted bread with a kiss of alcohol.

The taste is very dark fruit forward at first blush, followed by molasses and cherry cough syrup in the middle. Dark chocolate, burnt toast, and char perform rearguard duties. A mild, tingling alcohol sensation permeates the taste from front to back, finally yielding in the finish. Slightly peppery, herbal hops meld nicely with the whole affair. The body is medium-heavy and the mouthfeel is thick, slick, and smooth. A very tasty residue of plums, dates, and currants lingers on the lips, adding a seductive extra dimension. The rich, tangy, charred character of D.O.R.I.S. is evocative of barbecued ribs and would probably pair well with such.

Overall, this is a damn tasty, smooth, rich, drinkable imperial stout. If I'm being picky, the cough syrup can become slightly cloying as it warms, and it could use a more substantial head for presentation purposes, but those are fairly minor grievances. Stout lovers won't be disappointed. (1,247 characters)

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Picked up in early October from LetsPour.com for $22 or $23. No bottling date visible.

Beer poured jet black with little to no head.

Nose is heavy on the chocolate malts with some roasting and mocha.

Taste is extremely well balanced, roasted dark chocolates blend near perfectly with an ample amount of hopping.

Mouthfeel is viscous, full, and smooth like a double stout should.

I have tried the two BORIS brews and DORIS and overall I like DORIS the best. It is very similar to Expedition Stout... (503 characters)

22 oz. bomber poured into a Duvel Tulip. Beer comes out fudgy jet black in color, with no highlights, but gets red at the top as the head forms. Dark the whole way through, blocks the light if you hold it up to it. The head is multicolored brown, but mostly dark. Small bubbles and not much in the way of lacing.

Smell is really good. Like any dark RIS it's got a big malt backbone. Plenty of dark bittersweet chocolate, charred caramel, espresso, along with some sweet toasted bread. There's also a big citrus hoppy aroma blended in there that's very detectable.

Taste is completely on par with the aromas. Coco fudge infused dark roasted coffee with a shot of espresso. Some burned charred caramel and/or butterscotch hint that's covered up by a nice hoppy aftertaste. Earthy without being to gritty and slight citrus. Everything meshes together quite well.

Nice mouthfeel, undoubtedly a very full bodied beer with a nice lingering flavor. Very smooth with a modest carbonation level, but enough. The 10.5% is detectable, but not overwhelming at all. DORIS is a nice sipper and is sweet while having appropriate bitterness. I have to say I've had this beer with various ages on it and they are all delicious. This is a very drinkable beer that I would recommend sharing with friends, but a bomber could by consumed by a beer lover on their own. It has all the intangibles of any great RIS. Another great beer by Hoppin Frog. (1,431 characters)

Overall falls a bit short for me on the smell, taste and feel but I bet the barrel aged version is outstanding adding a whole new layer of depth. There isn't anything wrong with this aggressive brew but just a bit too bold on the hops and deep malt versus the Boris oatmeal and ba. (281 characters)

Happy New Year!

Wanted to pick up a 4-pack of Old Raspy for NYE, but TW was out! Picked up a bomber of DORIS in its place. Must have been fate!

A - Darkest head I've ever seen on a beer - beautiful! The beer is black and opaque, and the head seems to last and last.

S - Very complex with bitter chocolate, low coffee, tons of dark fruit and a hint of woody, herbal hops.

T - Similar to aroma. Chocolate up front, with some bitter roast coffee. Plums, raisins, and figs. Dry finish from the roast malt, but lacks the hop bitterness I would like to balance the malt.

M - Full and rich. Moderately low carbonation, would like a bit more. Very low alcohol warmth; well-hidden!

O - Very tasty RIS! (698 characters)

Poured from bottle into crooked stave tulip. I think its a 2012 since I got it a year ago (December 2012). Looks like motor oil when poured, but it does have a quick brown 1 finger head that lasts like 10 seconds...brown lacing remains. Huuge roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, and dried fruit aroma but its very crisp. Taste is bitter sweet chocolate and roasted dark malts with a somewhat high hop character - especially for an older bottle. Its slightly oxidized raison flavor is really nice. Its very dry, viscous, thick, oily, and heavy - but strangely drinkable. Well worth having this brew...its pretty fantastic. (619 characters)

As much as I love barrel aged imperial stouts, I am always on the look out for great tasting "non-barrel aged" imperial stouts. For me, this might be the gold standard.

This bottle had aged in my cellar for a year so I may have to try a fresh bottle to get a full look at what this beer is like. This particular bottle though was excellent. The pour into the glass was thick and black. The smell was of huge malts, chocolate and dark fruits. I assume a fresh bottle would have more roasted malt and hop presence but I don't know that for sure. The taste was incredibly tasteful and complex. If this beer was this good a year in, it seems to me that it would be a great candidate for aging. Hoppin' Frog beers sometimes seem a little too pricey for me but after having this offering tonight, I am starting to think that the price is worth it. (842 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A - 4 - Black beer, mocha head, nice lacing.
S - 4.75 – Great roasted coffee, espresso, chocolate, cream, vanilla, oak but it's not oak aged, smokey. Amazing smelling beer.
T – 4.75 – Alot is the same as the smell. More on the booze and bourbon flavors. Roasted coffee, espersso, chocolate, cream, vanilla, oak, smoke. Very similar to Expedition Stout.
M – 4.75 – Very thick, chocolate milkshake like beer. Alc present and appropriate. Aftertaste is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, smoke. Very flavorful and complex beer.
O – 4.75 – Great beer. Very similar to Bell's Expedition stout. Less available and probably not as good of a deal though. Not worth the 18.99 price tag if you can get expedition instead. (728 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Jet black, viscous and thick, this poured richly with a dark brown froth for a crown.

The panel is so full of chocolate it's hard to describe. It dominates a the malty char and coffee that sit to the back.

The flavor is fudgy with some barrel like qualities. I get oak wood with that interior char that bourbon has. The burnt coffee flavor is slight and the malt gives a nice toasty flavor. The chocolate fudge continues to dominate though, an it lasts to the end.

The feel is quite thick but possesses the smallest of wateriness.

This stout is top notch, full of flavor and just just plain tasty. (601 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2.75

22 fl oz brown glass bottle with appealing if simple label art and unbranded gold pressure cap acquired at Lukas Liquor and served into an EKU 28 stem-snifter glass in me parents' gaff in high altitude Castle Rock CO. 10.5% ABV confirmed. 118 OG. 70 IBU. I don't recall exactly when this was picked up, but it's at least 6 months old and no more than 14.

Served chilled - after a period of rest following its removal from the fridge - and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a half finger wide head of gorgeous rich tan colour with shiny red hues. Nice thickness and creaminess. Retention is subpar - about 40 seconds, though the floater ring it resolves to remains for maybe a minute longer. Luscious thick even lacing coats the sides of the glass. Nice soft complexion. Smooth consistency.

Body colour is, predictably, an opaque solid jet black. No floating yeast particles are visible. No light can penetrate this beer.

Overall, it's an appealing appearance for an imperial stout and I'm really looking forward to trying it. Not unique or special. No egregious flaws. The head colour is wonderful; I just wish it would stick around longer.

Sm: Luscious lush cream. Dark malts. Milk chocolate. Chocolate malts. Lightly earthy. Any roasted barley is so buried it's imperceptible. It's a biteen timid, and is surprisingly light in terms of its strength. Oatmeal is about as strong here as oatmeal in a beer gets - which admittedly isn't much. Seems silky and velvety just based on the aroma - as unlikely as that may seem.

Not boozy or hot. Clean; no yeast character is detectable. I find no coffee.

A pleasing, sweet aroma. I'm looking forward to trying it.

T/Mf: Elegant, silky, velvety, slick, smooth, and wet.

But it's also has this atrocious earthy bitterness, evoking ash and spent coffee. There're even some grainy sedimentary notes lurking beneath the surface.

Dark malts and chocolate malts comprise the bulk of the foundation. It's nicely creamy. Hopping is strong for the style; I pick up some hop bitterness as well as faint traces of floral hop character - which have faded with age to unfavorable effect.

Well-carbonated. Subpar presence on the palate. Decent thickness and body. A filling beer. Luckily, it's never too syrupy. But unfortunately, it's quite astringent, rough, harsh, and even vinous. Ugh. It drags on the palate. The texture is a real disappointment. Even the smoothing oats can't save it.

Not oily or gushed.

It's certainly on the sweeter end.

Balance is mediocre. Build isn't particularly cohesive, and is far from gestalt. Average duration and intensity of flavour. Below average depth of flavour. It's got plenty of complexity, but can't manage its many notes in a pleasing approachable way. Lacks subtlety, intricacy, and nuance. It's very bold and assertive, but attacks and ravages the palate without any consideration for delicacy or fragility.

Dr: An overly-aggressive imperial stout with far too much hopping (both in terms of personal preference and just for the balance of the beer). I'm really disappointed. I wouldn't buy this again or recommend it to friends. Ultimately, it's just too damn bitter and earthy. The mouthfeel is a disaster. It's difficult to drink as a result. I'll have to revisit it fresh to see if age was its undoing.

DORIS is BORIS big brother and delivers a huge malty punch.

A: Monsterous three finger soapy head that is so dark I can hardly believe my eyes. has legs. minimal lacing. Head disappears to a thin ring. Body is opaque.

S: Smell is huge choco-malt. Big coffee, toffee, hot buttered oak and vanilla. sharp oatmeal. Huge boozy phenolics.

T: Salty Chocolate. crazy chocolate malt, coffee, toffee diacetyl, and a huge pungent hop is somewhere that tries to stand up but it cannot overcome. Some minor bready yeasty notes. Oatmeal base stands out and up. Some dark fruit notes are hiding. Like sauteed prunes?

M: Creamy. Rich. Is not nearly as thick as I would have thought. Balanced thickness. What is like adult chocolate milk. Nice carbonation. Slick buttery finish. Slightly hot.

O: Crazy freaking good. Would NEVER turn this down. So many good things here. (859 characters)

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a clear glass snifter. No freshness date but purchased 2.5 years ago at Peabody's (Boone, NC).

A: Black body with 1-finger mocha colored head with good retention and nice blobs of lacing down the glass.

S: Heavy roast, chocolate, and coffee aromas, a bit of warming alcohol, and a bit of dark fruity maltiness. Really excellent melange of dark beer aromas.

T: The flavor is very strong on roast, chocolate, coffee just like in the aroma, but there is a licorice/anise edge that I don't care for and detracts from the otherwise strong stout flavor profile. Alcohol presence is not overdone, but about on target for the style.

M: A very full-bodied brew with a good level of carbonation and silky overall feel.

O: D.O.R.I.S. is a solid imperial stout that would be stronger yet with subtraction of the licorice note in the flavor. The rest of the beer is excellent but like most of HF's lineup, overpriced. (940 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Tasted 1 November 2013.

Pours black and thick, and viscous. Dark brown head, about one finger. Good retention, little lacing, but a solid coating when I tilt the glass.

Smell is rich and full, packed with chocolate and a fluffy oaty sweetness. Tilts to molasses in the back, and solid enough that it evokes hard liquor, even though there's none in it.

Taste is powerfully sweet. It's like brown sugar, molasses, some candy on top. And maybe a sugary oatmeal just for kicks. Really, I'm a malt freak, and this is too much for me. Not in the realm of Dark Lord, but up there. Behind all that sweetness, there are some hints of dark fruit. Aside from the sweet, though, which has all sorts of variety, it's pretty simple.

Feel is all right. Big and chewy. But it's flat. And I mean flatter than I expect a big, heavy stout to be. Flat enough that it feels sludgy, and just sits on my tongue. Oop, there was a little burp of carbonation. That rescued it... kinda.

Reading back through my review, I feel like I'm slamming this beer. But it's actually not that bad. It's just that, for a big imperial stout, it's not all that good. Overly sweet and undercarbonated. And I like sweetness and low carbonation. So there you have it. (1,228 characters)

Pours a pitch black with a light brown foam. In the nose, roasted malt and booze. In the taste, roasted malt, coffee and alcohol. The booze isn't over done, but this brew ain't afraid to show you what day it is. Full bodied, smooth medium carbonation and somewhat creamy. Overall, this is a big ol bastard you can grow to love. (327 characters)
