Aged in very special Irish whiskey barrels to add a super-smooth, buttery, and complex whiskey character to our multi-award-winning BORIS The Crusher Oatmeal-Imperial Stout. Cleaner and crisper than our standard Bourbon Barrel Aged BORIS Stout, this rare version is a testament to our hard work and dedication in bringing our customers the very best.

Dark pour with thin tan head leaving a small ring around the glass. Nose is vanilla into bourbon and slightly smokey. Initial sip is medium body but lively on the carbonation. Oxidation goes well with the style. Very smokey and peat finish with lingering whiskey notes. Finish lasts for a while with dry toffee and smoke. Much better than the standard bourbon ba’d Boris

22oz bottle from notes. Pours a dark brown cola color with a small tan head (even with agitation). The aroma has dark roasted malts, light and dark chocolate, some coffee, wood, dark fruit with a mild to moderate Irish whiskey note. The flavor has roasted malts, light sweet dark fruits, a mix of chocolates, black coffee, wood, Irish whiskey with a slight hint of tobacco. Medium plus body and fairly smooth considering this does get a touch boozy at times.

Blindprovad. (Holmqvist bjuder). Fat är tydligt. Snyggt skum med drag år mörkbrunt. Choklad och väldigt bra balans. Härlig mousse och kropp. Elegant.

Pours black with no head or lacing for me. Aroma of chocolate, whiskey, and oak. Taste of chocolate, whiskey, wood, roasty, and hints of vanilla and caramel. Medium to full bodied and oily. An overall very solid stout.

hopscotch (9953) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle... Pours pitch-black with a small, fleeting, beige head. The bouquet is a plush swirl of toasted nuts, roasted malts, pouch tobacco and mocha. Full-bodied and creamy with airy carbonation. The flavor furnishes cola, alcohol, dried plum, pouch tobacco and burnt, lightly bitter malts. Nicely balanced overall. Finishes boozy, singed and a touch rooty or herbal - I can’t decide. The barrel was not kind to the base beer, which I think is pretty awesome. Bottle provided by darkguardian!

Bottle @ Steve’s house. Thanks Armin! Pours a deep orangish brown appearance with a thin tan head. A bit chalky, dark chocolate, Oaty, caramel aroma. Kind of aggressive carbonation. Dark chocolate. Caramel, toffee, vanilla. A bit of cola. Solid but nothing special.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, oak, vanilla, touch of grain, hints of roast, toffee, slight dark chocolate, nice whiskey notes. Taste is a mix of creamy dark chocolate, roast, coffee, hints of whiskey, grain, dark fruit, finishing fairly bitter, dry.

Black pour with a reddish brown head. Chocolate, butter, nuts, and smooth whiskey are what make this beer delightful.

A nice surprise bottle share. Pours an inky jet black, some dark brown head. Nose of rich dark chocolate, toast, unmistakable irish whiskey, that clean buttery and almost citric stuff, hinting at soy and worcestershire. Nicely sweet, quite bitter. Like velvet, thick, oily, viscous, finishing long with dark chocolate and triple-distilled whiskey. Very nice, an interesting twist on barrel aging. Made for a nice treat.

22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a viscous black with a small tan / brown head. Nose brings out loads of whisky, roasted malt, caramel and cocoa. Flavour is rich and thick, with roasted malt, whisky, dry cocoa, and wood. Super complex, viscous on the palate, and fairly dry. Rich and decadent - drinkable in smaller amounts. Excellent.

phaleslu (7173) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2014
22 oz. bottle via local trade. Pours an opaque brown with a small tan head that leaves a lasting ring and a few spots of lace. Aroma of dark and milk chocolate, oak, molasses, marshmallow, earth, and warming Irish whiskey. Flavor of chocolate, marshmallow, coconut, molasses, vanilla, oak, burnt toast, and tobacco. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, smooth mouthfeel that finishes dry and roasty. Nice barrel treatment. Not my top BORIS but another fine entry in the series.
