COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottled@fonefan. Pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, liquorice, wood, vanilla, mild alcohol and some slight ashy notes. Flavour is vanilla, chocolate, liquorice, toffee, mild alcohol and some wood. Delicate balance and very tasty brew.

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.

yngwie (15390) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2015 On tap at the tap room. A black beer with a small, tan head. The aroma has a nice bourbon touch, roasted malts, dark sugar, some coffee and dark chocolate and a hoppy touch. It’s full bodied, warm and smooth on the palate, with a nice booze touch and lots of roasted malt flavors. Dark sugar and chocolate and a nice bitterness. Lasting roasted and light boozy finish. Lovely. 150616

Near black body with a thin beige collar. Aromas of roast, whiskey, oak. Silky smooth, velvet palate. Dangerously easy to drink. Chocolate, roast, whiskey, light notes of vanilla. Fabulous.

bytemesis (4654) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle from alwcordell. Pours opaque black, medium dark brown head that dissipates slowly with good lacing. Aroma is bourbon, roasty, cocoa, vanilla, anise. Flavor is medium sweet, medium bitter, lots of oak, bourbon, roast, a touch of anise, some molasses. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Not harsh like some PVW aged beers can be. A bit hot and boozy. Solid.
