Bottle. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is roasted malt, rye bread, vanilla, chocolate and oat, the taste is much the same with some alcohol present. Medium to full body with a long plesant finish. Vell balanced.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bomber thanks to zinnamon. Poured thick, I mean this could have been oil thick, and dark, I mean I thought this was oil dark, with a small medium brown head (and not light brown but medium brown). Aroma had some alcohol coming through with notes of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some licorice. Flavor was similiar but dropped off from the aroma slightly. The palate on this was very full, what else would it be with the thickness from the pour, and only a mild alcohol prescence with a slight touch of carbonation. This may have been the thickest fullest beer I have ever had because I have never seen a beer leave a lacing, of the beer itself not from the head, like this one did. Looked like oil was poured into my snifter and I feared for my carpet in case I became sloppy.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This ended up being really, really drinkable. Super dark black colour with a brown head that started out big and faded away quickly. Not a ton in the aroma on this one, some bakers chocolate and dry roast. Good coating mouthfeel with a soft barely perceptable carbonation. Chocolate and fig in the flavour, big roasted malt flavour as well. Slightly dry with just a bit of hops at the end.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle. Poured an opaque black color. Head was light brown. Aroma was of chocolate and alcohol. Oily, thick mouth feel. Tasted of malty molasses, chocolate, fig, raisin, and alcohol. Yum.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a fast disappearing brown head. The aroma is very powerful with notes of bitter chocolate, alcohol, and caramel, as well as lighter notes of smoke and wood. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of hard roasted malt that gives the beer both an acidity and a dryness, the hops also leave a slight touch of grapefruit, before a dry and bitter end sets in, the bitterness both coming from the hops and the hard roasted malt.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of sk8viking. Pours thick and tar-like, black and opaque with a dense, light brown head. Sweetish aroma with some vanilla and a tart edge. Good and solid body with lots of roasted malt, vanilla and coffee notes with a vague, burned edge. The burned notes hold all through the finish where the alcohol shows. Not a bad beer in any way, but there’s just so many better Imperial Stouts out there that for some reason never made the Top 50. 160607

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Small creamy like dark brown head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Very dark color. Aroma was a lovely mix of chocolate, coffee, burned malt and light hoppy notes. Also liquorish, berries, oats, prune and date with somewhat port wine like feel as well. Very full bodied with an average carbonation and a thick creamy texture. Only a hint of alcohol. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitterness. Lingering English liquorish finish that combines the sweet and bitter notes well. Lovely and very smooth Imperial Stout.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle poured in a tulip. I’ve wanted to try BORIS for some time now. It pours an extremely dark brown, nearly black with a small brown head that leaves soapy looking lace on the glass. The aroma is subtle with hints of Whoppers and ripe fruit. It has a great chewy body that fills your mouth and throat like a good prime rib. BORIS has a prune, chocolate, licorice taste that hides a pancake & maple syrup core. The finish is a little bitter like those phoo phoo cappuccinos that you buy in vending machines. The whole thing is very nicely balanced with just the right amount of hops.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black with little brown head that exits quickly. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, and some fruit. Coffee flavors to start with hints of fruit, chocolate, and fruit. Became smoother as it warmed but was already smoothe to start. Very good. Couldn’t even taste the alcohol which is bad/good!
