Aged in very special Kentucky whiskey barrels to add a super smooth, buttery, and complex whiskey character to our multi-award winning BORIS The Crusher Oatmeal Imperial Stout. Richer and bolder 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.

Bottle. Poured a deep black with a frothy tan head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, wood, and bourbon. Flavor follows the nose perfectly and was insanely smooth and mellow. Full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, and smooth finish to it. No alcohol noticed and this was amazing and easy-drinking.

22 oz bottle. Just about black with rising brown froth. Nose is fudge brownie, bourbon, walnuts, caramel, cocoa, light roast and raisin. Creamy, rich and full bodied with a tingle. Taste is bourbon, mocha, vanilla and caramel finishing with a touch of smoke. Heavier on the bourbon than the nose would indicate.

laiti (7744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2015
65 cl bottle @ Fonefan, thanks! Aroma has sweet cocoa tones, some whiskey sweetness and mild licorice tones. Flavour has sweet whiskey tones, peat, vanilla, licorice and mild rubbery tones. Quite thin for the specifications, still I like the sweet vanilla and cocoa here. Whisky and alcohol are too sharp at the end of the glass though - and this feels too sweet too, drinkability is not that great anymore.
