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.

22oz bottle. Shared with Jay and Pam. Nearly pitch black color. Thin lighter brown head. Leaves very nice lace. Awesome barrel character, cookie dough, brown sugar. Good, chewy, creamy texture. Lighter, creamy carbonation. More dry finish. Awesome moderate sweet taste, nothing close to cloying though. Moderate bitter, too. Alcohol well-hidden. Fantastic, complex stuff. Even Pam (who usually is a wine person) adored this. Dark bitter chocolate. Light hints of coffee, roast. Awesome, awesome stuff. One of the best beers I’ve had in a while.

Bottle, thanks Mike. Pour is pitch black with a small tan ring head. Aroma is of molasses, bourbon, chocolate, burnt toast, and brown sugar. Flavor is upfront with the bourbon at first but transitions into a nicely balanced finish - notes of wood, vanilla, chocolate cake, brown sugar, and fudge.

Boom! Black pour, brown head. Rich chocolate with huge vanilla and rich bourbon notes. Creamy, thick, oily and awesome.

22 oz. bottle shared by thebaldwizard - thanks again, Joe! Pours an inky midnight brown with almost no head. Notes of molasses, bourbon, chocolate, coconut, caramel, toast, brown sugar, oak, tobacco, fudge, and nuts. Medium-full bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a coating mouthfeel. So rich and smooth. Really nice. This series is great.

22 oz. bottle with the group (sample at RBWG). Pours a dark brown to black color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor had all the great stuff from the regular Boris; roasted malt, chocolate, and espresso, oatmeal, some earthy hops, a splash of alcohol with the welcome addition of the pappy barrel. Wood, bourbon, vanilla that enhance the qualities of the base beer.

MrChopin (3288) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
black, thin tan ring and oily top. Sweet nose, bubblegum and bourbon, faintest oak but considerable alcohol nearing cleaning product. Rich cake and chocolate up front, coating across mid with straight sugar finish. Thin in the end but decent for at least a while.

Bottle @ The HUGE Tasting. Cheers to Leighton (I think) for the pour! Deep brown with a tight tan head. The nose is of burnt oatmeal raisin cookies. Plenty of roasted malts, tangy fruit accents. Light caramel. The taste is really ashy. Loads of burnt malts. Vanilla, chocolate cookies. Full body, oily. Somewhat all over the place. Strong roast dominates. Overall, I thought this was a marked step down from the base beer. Still tasty, but disappointing.

Bottle at RBWG room tasting. JPours black with brown head. Nose and taste of bourbon, oak, roast chocolate, vanilla, brownie and fudge. Light bourbon is well balanced and integrated. Full bodied.

Bottle pour opaque dark brown. Nose sweet malt and bourbon, but well balanced. Taste bourbon up front with lots of vanilla and barrel. Mid palate sweet, roast,and mild chocolate. Mild roast finish.

Jesterdeal (1887) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle shared by Dave. Great label. Aroma is dark roasted chestnut, chocolate cake, and slight oak. Pours black with a slight brown film. Taste is pleasant caramel chocolate cake, good roast coffee, and the slightest hint of oak. Very dark and roasty which kind of drowns out the barrel. Could have used a little more barrel but still damn good.
