4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer pours thicker than any beer I've seen to date. Literally looks like chocolate syrup or motor oil. Eat your heart out older visc. Thick and dark with a filthy little brown head. Looks amazing. Nose is rich milk chocolate, hints of coffee, toffee, molasses and a little pine cone for good measure. Taste is sweet with a great well balanced bitterness that stays on through the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is decadently rich, creamy and soft with a lightly fizzy edge. Heavy body is putting it lightly. It's big and I love it. The finish seems to carry on forever. No shortage of taste. I didn't think it could get better than BORIS but they killed it.

Pours an opaque very dark brown with a rich, dark brown head. Rich chocolate, oatmeal, and vanilla nose. Viscous and smooth mouthfeel. Flavors are remarkably more complex than what’s detected in the nose. Smokiness, oatmeal, vanilla, chocolate, date, and olive. Yummy.

Better than its brother Boris, Doris is an excellent imperial. Almost no alcoholic bite, this one has big flavors of oatmeal, chocolate and molasses.

22oz bottle, received via trade with heybeerman -
Decadence. If I had just one word to describe this beer, that would be it. I’ve only had Hoppin’ Frog once or twice but this was phenom. Like a great stout and a top notch dessert combined into one. The aroma is just one long stream rich chocolate, coffee, light soy notes, a little salty, and light hops. Coffee, black strap molasses, dark chocolate, earthy hops, light soy with just a tiny smidge of smoke. Thick, coating, viscous and amazing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pitch black color with small brown head. Chocolate and roasted coffee beans in the aroma. Rich taste of bitter chocolate, espresso and bitter espresso and hoppy finish. Super-smooth mouthfeel, thick and oily texture. Very good stout, but not so easy to drink for many people I guess.
