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.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2012
Big bottle at OleRs great garden session, shared with fellow ratebeerians. Oily pour, filmy patches at the surface. The body is black as pitch. Dark malty nose added by a touch of basement and ripe fruits. Vanilla oak and earthy malts in flavour, bourbon, cocoa and oat, as well. Rounded aftertaste with bittersweet roastiness. Very pleasing (Stovner, 25.05.2012).

22oz bottle 6/2/12 (Binny’s Naperville) 51° in Snifter-Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, sweetness, coffee, and slight dried fruit. Taste of the same with some more sweetness, choclate, and coffee. This full bodied brew is a bit different but still awesome. Great brew.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2012
22 oz. bottle via trade with bittermestupid - Pours a dark brown color with a 2/3 finger thick tan head. Aroma is toasted malt, playdough, and light chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and dark esters. Chocolate lingers in the finish. Alcohol is noticeable, but not overbearing. A good beer. Thanks Greg.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2012
Barely any head; what’s there is brown. Opaque black body. Earthy chocolatey aroma with soy sauce notes. Dry-sweet earthy roasty linoleum taste with alcohol notes. Fullish body. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish soy sauce and chocolate aftertaste with burnt earthy vanilla fudge notes. Really nice and harmonic. (0.65l bottle shared by Ole_R.)

Bottle shared at my 30:th birthday tasting on May 5 (30 år av Surt). Bottle bought @ Ølbutikken. Pours oily pitch black with a very small chocolate brown head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace.

Taste is sweet, bitter, salty and tiny metallic with dark bread, salty liquorice, burnt caramel, bitter chocolate, coffee, alcohol and orange peal. Mouthfeel is tiny sticky sweet, very tiny tart and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with coffee, roasted malts, salty liquorice and dark bread.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle from Enjoyit. Dee black pour, quickly dissipating brown head. Aroma is very sweet malty, lots of chocolate, caramel (sidste skoledagskarameller, de brune), cocoa nibs, very sweet from the English malts. Taste has dark chocolate, roasted malts, lots of sweetness, same caramel thing foing, cocoa, dark fruits, but over all very sweet. Give me regular boris.
