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.

22 ounce bottle into snifter; bottled in late Fall 2011, so this is a year old now. Pours pitch black color with a small dark tan head with decent retention that reduces to a thin lace that lingers. Slight spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, toast, coffee, molasses, bread, light char, oatmeal, and light dark fruits. Damn nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity; can definitely see the bready toast character from the English malts. Taste of big dark chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, coffee, molasses, light char, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, raisin, oatmeal, and light tobacco. Light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, caramel, toast, molasses, toffee, biscuit, dark fruit, oatmeal, and light tobacco on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance, complexity, and robustness of flavors; with a very pronounced malt backbone and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a creamy, thick, and slick mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent Imperial stout! Great balance and complexity of highly robust flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering as expected.

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.

Beerman6686 (4234) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2014
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!!!
