Good offering from Hoppin Frog. Pretty much agree with reviews stating this is a good beer but not on par with D.O.R.I.S or B.O.R.I.S. Good chocolate and rye flavor but nothing incredible. Worth a taste if you have the opportunity but not a must have.

From 05/13/14 notes. 22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

a - Pours a deep mahogany brown color, almost black color, with one inch of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks great.

s - Smells of rye, chocolate, roasted malts, spice, toasted malts, cocoa, and dark chocolate. Nice nose, the rye comes through and a lot of chocolate.

t - Tastes of dark chocolate, roasted malts, rye, spices, chalk, lightly bitter dark chocolate and hops, burnt malts, and toasted malts. Little bitter, but good.

m - Thick full body and low to moderate carbonation. Thick and chewy but no heat, great mouthfeel for a stout.

o - Overall a nice rye-chocolate stout. I didn't like it as much as their normal stout lineup of BORIS< BA BORIS< and DORIS, but it has a lot of chocolate to it and the rye comes through. Worth checking out if you like their stouts.

Another late night share by RussianDragon. Thanks Dave!

The beer is near black with a small beige collar. Sparse lacing. The aroma brings baker's chocolate, roast, ripe dark fruits, bread. The rye character is subtle, but does add a nice touch. Cocoa and dark roast. Big time Danish influence in this stout. Medium to full bodied with moderately low carbonation. A touch of bitterness and dry cocoa powder in the finish. A solid beer. I really enjoyed this.
