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 @ The Bruery, shared by GT. Black pour with a tan head. Bourbon, roast, and booze on the nose. Kind of sharp, maybe a touch of solvent. Big time dark fruits and chocolate. Flavor has a nice plum and chocolate sweetness. Strong bourbon, vanilla, and roasted malt. A ton of oak, too.

Theydon_Bois (9054) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle split at that legendary January 3rd 2014 tasting, aka the not to small tasting, big ole dankts to LK Smith for this bonus goodness. Mid black with a good dirty tan head that quickly dissipates to a pond and edgework. Nose is dark malts, sweet aromas, light roast, bourbon notes, toffee. Taste comprises rich brown sugars, dark toffee fudge, light roast, chocolate, subtle bourbon twang. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth feel. Solid BA impy, a really easy drinking affair for the ABV!

651mL thanks to beerman6686! Pours clear, near black. Minimal reddish foam. Nose is fruity strawberry, cheesecake, brownie. Warming up it gains of chocolate mousse, but nothing comes across as bourbon barrel let alone PVW. Taste is boozy, dense, mild dark chocolate balance- gains some familiar BORIS notes but it isn’t as agressive. Palate density is spot on at least. But no bourbon barrel character. Disappointing :/

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Sample at the Hoppin’ Frog Tasting Room. Inky black color with a medium thin khaki head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Bourbon, roasted malt and chocolate in the nose. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, chocolate malt and raisins, with a hint of banana. The finish is dark chocolate and bourbon. Another good entry in the BORIS series.
