4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one pured a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma was big dark chocolat, light smoke, bitter hops, and roast. Flavor was fudgey, dark chocolate, tar, smoke and hop bitterness. Might I say this is better than regular boris?

650 ml bottle shared with Calm Dreamer and Skullsplitter at The Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki Greece. Black body with a thin dark brown head. Smell was really intense with coffee, vanilla and a hint of bourbon (???). After a while, alcohol notes were appearing when we shaked the glass. Taste was phenomenal, with coffee, maybe some dark chocolate, dark fruits, cherries, plums, berries, some vanilla, some bourbon!!! Holly #$%!!! Strong aftertaste, very sweet. Full body with medium alcohol!!!

Bottle. Oily black pour with a scattered tan slick of foam. Dense, bitter chocolate and roast in the aroma with light hop bitterness into the finish. Taste is heavy chocolate with some alcohol heat and spice followed by some darker malt and light bitterness. Clean, lightly coating mouthfeel. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Black-colored with a bit of brown foam. Lovely roasty aroma with lots of dark chocolate, a bit of liqueur-like booziness, notes of dark fruits and a bit of licorice. Sweet roasty flavor, quite burnt, a bit alcoholic, with lots of dark chocolate. Full-bodied. A good Imperial Stout, a very pleasant sipper.

Bottle. Pours jet black with a small brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted with notes of cocoa, oatmeal, chocolate and light licorice. The flavor is bittersweet malty with toasted caramel, chocolate and oat. Great! Bit more earthy than the original BORIS.
