COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA and Stout converge for a really great flavor combination to create a rich and robust black & tan. The assertive hoppy character of our Hoppin to Heaven IPA is perfectly complimented by the intense deep roasted flavor of our BORIS Oatmeal Imperial Stout. Two great tastes that taste even better together.

Roasty and grapefruity hop are the aromas that immediately come to my nose. Followed by chocolate & just a touch of toasty caramel. Flavor is well balanced overall, maybe just a bit too well. Although, a little IPA bitterness sneaks into the finish. Chocolatey & roasty flavors present in moderation, as is a light grapefruity hop, but it’s up front and doesn’t really last into the finish.

Poured from a bomber. Pours a dark brown with a thin khaki colored head of foam. Aroma is fairly hoppy with fruity notes dominating a smooth malty oaty backbone. Taste is a lot like a black IPA in bitterness and roasty notes. Good malt body. Very nice.

22 ounce for 6 bucks. Pours black with a huge brown head. Aroma is slightly piney but mostly chocolate. Taste is similar, starting out with piney hoppiness and leading into the chocolate and malt flavor. Body is average, a little slick with average carbonation. It’s listed as a Strong Ale; I’m not quite sure that describes the taste accurately. Still, this is a very good beer.

I’m not usually a fan of the bottled black and tans, but this is a great version. Smooth, mildly sweet, with equal parts chocolate and pine.
