4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Enjoyed alongside the superior original (which was a 4.5).
Pours utterly black with a small, creamy, beige head. Sweet, vinious aroma with coffee, vanilla, oak and fat, lovely chocolate. Low carbonation, great dry and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is oaky, dry, vinious, vanilla, coffee. Masterful aftertaste with good dryness, bitterness, roasted and chocolate notes. Wonderful, but the aging detracts from the utter brilliance of the original. Overall, it gains some tartness and oak but looses the fantastic balance of BORIS. But still nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a lasting brown head. Aroma of oak, tannin and licorice. Sweet licorice flavour with tannins and oak notes. Felt a bit like the oak was getting in the way of the delicious boris flavour. I’d rather have the original.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of After4ever, thanks Tom! It’s pitch black with a dark-brown, creamy head and the aroma has notes of roasted malt, oats, vanilla, wood, chocolate and dark fruits. The flavour is sweet with notes of raisin, vanilla, wood, hints of whisky, oats, chocolate and dark fruits. It’s very complex and nice, but to be honest, I prefer the normal B.O.R.I.S.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at local BA gathering.
Poured a clear dark brown color with a minimal brown head that mostly diminished with virtually no lacing. Moderate to heavy roast coffee, chocolate, smoke wood and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.
This is a standout smooth brew.
