Had to rate this as my 100. This Eng Imp is wonderful. The rich malts are such a big part of this 5/5 brew. Real great head and carbonation. The flavor is slightly sweet and so roasty to balance. Such a great tasting brew A++++

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Steve’s house. Thanks to a chill Ohio trader for sending me this. Pours a deep brown appearance with a thin dark head. A lot more spicy aroma than the last Boris variant. A bit minty, ginger, dark chocolate, caramel nose. Body is a bit flabby. Slightly piney, dark chocolate, twangy toffee flavor. The body is surprisingly flabby. Drinks pretty good but I think I prefer normal Boris better.

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!!!
