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.

Bottle shared by DalzAle, from StFun! Awesome. Ink black pour with beige head that lasted for a bit. Roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla and bourbon on the nose. Thick palate, sticky and sweet. Bitter chocolate, creamy vanilla and bourbon. Fantastic.

JulienHuxley (2854) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
Bottle at tasting. Black pour, thin brown head. Aroma is quite bourbon forward, very powerful vanilla bourbon notes, milk chocolate. Taste is sweet, bourbony, bourbon flavor but without being boozy which is nice, good roasty bitterness as well. Palate is med-full bodied with good carbonation, far from cloying. Enjoyable stout.

Bottle shared at the 2014 tasting in the Cellar of Moeder Lambic Saint-Gilles. Pours near black with a ring beige head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, milk chocolate and caramel. Flavor is light heavy sweet and moderate bitter. A little alcohol burn in the finish. Light full bodied with soft carbonation.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. Pitch black pour with a thick light brown head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, and roast. Malty and chocolatey flavor up front with slight bourbon before a big roasted malt and dark chocolate finish. Finishes sort of thin compared to all you get up front, but still very tasty.

DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to StFun! Dark black pour, little carbonation and an aroma of dark chocolate. Flavor was also a perfect meld of dark chocolate, slight alcohol heat, hints of coffee, peat and mild whiskey. Great beer, I wish these guys would do nothing but focus on their imperial stouts!

douglas88 (5800) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bomber thanks to Dan. Pours a jet black color with a medium white head. Looks amazing. A superb huge bourbon, sugary sweet nose. The flavor is vanilla, dark fruit, big sugary sweet bourbon. The barrel is clearly PVW and very smooth. Awesome.

neepsntatties (1164) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle shared by "Douglas88". Colour...basic black with a thick tan head. Nose...nicely Bourbony with anise and dark chocolate. Palate...dry, oaky and semi-sweet with licorice whips, cocoa mass and burnt raisins. There’s a massively viscous feel across the palate and the finish is quite long and oaky.
