COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BORIS #100 was made with the finest English Pale Ale malt instead of our usual American malt, to celebrate brewing the 100th. batch of BORIS The Crusher Oatmeal-Imperial Stout. This adds a slightly sweeter and truly traditional flavor for this truly bodacious English-style Imperial Stout, our flagship beer! Made in extremely limited quantites.

Has a blue cap.

Shared bomber from Craft Ale House. Poured hazy black with tan head. Nose was roasty dark malt, cacao, molasses. Tasted rich, with notes of dark malt, some molasses-sweetness, nutty notes late.

Undated, but If this was only brewed once this bottle is 3+ years old. It seems a little oxidized and a little flat. Much sweeter nose and flavor than regular Boris. Still nice, but far from elite. Tingly feel and decent body despite looking flat.

Smells and tastes like roasty coffee and mild dark chocolate. Medium body, light carbonation, and no foam.

Bottle big thanks to Todd. I’ve wanted this for sometime. Pours a nice jet black color with a small beige grey head. The aroma is rich roast, coffee, metallic. The flavor is ashy, sweet, some age shows in light oxidation, tangy metal, dark fruit. Solid.

Bottle 2011 from Hoppin Frog Bottle shop .... Pours thick black with a thin orange head .... carbonation way down from the usual BORIS ..... no lacing .... aroma of dark chocolate, roasted, sweeter than usual BORIS for sure with a slight grain to it ... taste is sweet, dark chocolate, roasted malts, molasses ... body is thick mouthfeel is slick and oily ... finishes with a slight bitterness and dry with a nice sweet roastedness ..... if this is BORISh than the usual its still damn good!

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Many thanks to Joel! Poured deep brown with a short-lived toasted beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, roasty cocoa, biscuity malts, and a touch of treacle with light straw and herbal accents. The flavor found roasty cocoa, coffee, hearty biscuits, and molasses at the core, with some tangy notes and some peppery alcohol around.. roasty cocoa, black malt, and a kiss of molasses on the belly-warming finish. Heavier-bodied with low carbonation.. a little caught off guard by the tangy character, which could be a result of age.. overall very tasty, and I’m glad to have tried it!

Bottle acquired thanks to beerman6686. Pours a dark black brown without any real head. Aromas of dark fruits, overripe bananas, slight alcohol. Taste is sweet and smooth. Slight alcohol burn. Little carb so medium mouthfeel.

Bottle purchased at the brewery about 1.5 years earlier, so this has some age on it. Pours midnight black. Oily residue with very little head or lacing. Sweet molasses aroma with some coffee. Mouthfeel is dark and slick but very smooth. Taste is dark and roasty. Sweet but not cloyingly so. Very well balanced. Lots of "stouty" flavors here. Very buttery with coffee and very mild oak. Real good beer.
