COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aged in bourbon whiskey barrels to add a wonderful complexity to our massive American Double Imperial Stout. This barrel aging imparts memorable buttery, vanilla-like, and savory whiskey character, making this one of our most complex beers we’ve ever brewed. Another testament to our hard work and dedication in bringing our customers the very best.

Draught. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, oats and bourbon. Taste is pretty much like the aroma - roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, oats, licorice, love and bourbon. Full creamy body and low carbonation. The aftertaste is quite roasted and has lots of bourbon in it. However, unlike most barrel aged beers it actually works quite well here. It feels very balanced. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pitch black pour, thick body, smaller head. Huge bourbon/vanilla in both the aroma and taste, coffee, dark chocolate, wood, liquorice. A sipper, or a great candidate for sharing.

Draft. A pitch black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of bourbon, oats, roasted malt, and milk chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol, bourbon, and wood, leading to a dry roasted finish.

DialSquare (2756) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bomber from Weilands Market. Black pour with a brown head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, coffee. Tastes are chocolate, oak, soy, cherry, whiskey, vanilla, earthy. Creamy palate. Relatively balanced for how crazy big it is. I’d take a regular Boris over all of the treatments, but that’s just to my tastes - this is a huge, complex, quality brew.

Lukasmh (171) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Thanks to Cerveceria Cimmeria. Big but really rounded imperial Stout! Pours black with very tan head. Short head, no lacing. Aroma is sweet liquor, wood, roasty, coffee and chocolate. Medium body, flat carbonation, viscous smooth texture. Taste is quite bitter, some vanilla, chocolate, coffee, liquor notes. Very smooth and well balanced, alcohol noticeable but well integrated. Ends bitter and quite dry. Really enjoyable and lovely. Better than BORIS BA

Poured from a bomber into a Hoppin Frog snifter a black brown with a tan head. Aroma is sweet molasses bourbon. Flavor is a syrup of chocolate vanilla with a deep brown sugar bourbon. Yep have raisin & dark fruits as well. Thick. Smooth. Exceptional.
