2.68/5  rDev -37.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

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.

Thanks B!

A - Pours a dark brown with a dark brown head with solid retention.

T - Bourbon, bitter chocolate, and some acidic-wood.

D - Good carbonation with a heavy body.

O - Bourbon is nice, but it falls off after that.
