2.68/5 rDev -37.7%
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Thick black body. Small khaki head. Thin collar.
Smell - Whiskey. Chocolate. Caramel. Doesn't really work that well thought.
Taste - Whiskey is strong. Chocolate. Very bitter. Kinda ashy. Uninspired finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Carbonation makes it feel thinner than it is. Boozy and bitter.
Overall - Not a good treatment of Boris. Ick.

Poured from bottle into Hoppin Frog tulip glass...Date is 1/3/2014
Appearance- Completely pitch black, no color whatsoever. Very good looking khaki head that disappears within a minute.
Smell- Whiskey, vanilla and brown sugar right away. A malty/ maple scent is there but barely.
Taste- Bitter dark chocolate hits me right in the face. Strange, but I detect butterscotch secondly. This is much different from Hoppin Frog's traditional BA B.O.R.I.S.. I may be overestimating my palate, but I think I can tell this was aged in whiskey barrels and not bourbon.
Mouthfeel- It is much thinner then I had anticipated. Very unique experience in my mouth. With every sip I feel like my mouth is coated with dark chocolate. The whiskey is lingering in the back of my mouth and throat forever.
Overall- For the record, I am born and raised in the Akron area, so I am, as should be expected, an Ohio brewery homer. With that being said, I try to be as honest as possible while reviewing beers. Great beer from a world-class brewery.
