In short: Really good! Nice malty taste of roasted coffee and chocolate. Really well rounded taste that lasts for a while.

hopmelt (173) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2014
Pours very dark Brown, no light through, slight dark khaki thin head thin lacing. Aroma chocolate, coffee, alcohol toffee, caramel, earthy. Taste roast malt, coffee, bittersweet chocolate, sweet caramel, alcohol. Mouthfeel full body, creamy alcohol astringency and bite, low carbonation, sweet finish. Overall very good, rich, complex, finish a bit sweet, but perfect for the style. I can only imagine what a few years of age would do to this beer, need to get one for the cellar

Jaksmart (407) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 26, 2014
Tap @ Fermentoren Aarhus. Pitch black motor oil color, with a beautiful light brown head with a voluptuous thickness. Aroma is dark chocolate, mild roasted coffee, vanilla, figs, sweet liquorice, molasses, port, sweet raisins. Very thick aroma which ticlkles the nostrils in a very sexual way. Taste is thick, thick 80+ chocolate, very insisting sweetness, molasses, boozy but with a very nice finish with a mild, cocoa-like bitterness that sticks to the palate. Lovely!

Staffan47 (860) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
Tap på OC i samband med Astralsläpp nr 2. Kaffe dominerar doftbilden. Rostade och brända stoutdofter. Svagt mörk choklad. Len, som sig bör. Hög beska och krämig kropp. ("Inte så imponerad" står det även i anteckningarna även om jag vill minnas den som riktigt bra).

neuromatt (1139) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
22 oz bottle, served in a snifter next to the whiskey barrel-aged version. Pours oily black with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has huge notes of espresso, chocolate, and molasses, along with roast malts, tobacco and subtle smoke. The flavour is moderately sweet with roasty malts, chocolate and molasses. Towards the end, tobacco and espresso reemerge and linger to a slightly smoky, roasted finish. On the palate it is full in body with a velvety smooth texture and soft carbonation. Overall this is a very nice, elegant imperial stout. 2014-04-03

Unde (350) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 5, 2014
Deep brown colour with cinnamon coloured head on top. Aroma has deep roasted flavors, with brown sugar, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is sweet, almost like syrup. There is roasted malt flavors with lots of chocolate. Oily body with medium carbonation. Slightly sweeter Imperial Stout but damn good.

wallas (4) - SPAIN - MAR 21, 2014 does not count
Botella de 65cl en el Cabanon. Color negro. Espuma poco duradera. Sabor a café y chocolate y con notas dulces. No aparenta en alcohol que tiene. Fácil y muy agradable de beber

stoutnick (504) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2014
Black and oily with no real visible head. Smell is dark malt and a certain sweetish oatsy aroma. Taste is very well balanced between the roasted malts and the sweetness - think I might even prefer this base beer to the bourbon barrel version. Good solid stuff.

tomekk1978 (447) - POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Barwa: czarna, nie przejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana brązowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, niewielka i szybko opadająca. Wysycenie niskie. Aromat: przede wszystkim gorzka czekolada i kakao. W tle kawa, owies i alkohol, choć dobrze ukryty. Zdecydowanie przyjemny. Smak: słodki, gęsty, wręcz lepki. Lekka kwaskowość z kontrą czekoladowo-kawową. Na końcu alkohol i nuty owocowe (suszone śliwki?), które nieco mi przeszkadzają. B.O.R.I.S. jest pierwszym piwem z browaru Hoppin’ Frog, jakie miałem okazję próbować. Moje oczekiwania były dość duże i piwo to w zasadzie je spełniło, choć osobiście preferuję imperialne stouty bez wspomnianych nut owocowych. W kolejce czekają jeszcze trzy inne piwa z pod znaku żaby: D.O.R.I.S. (jeszcze mocniejsza siostra), Natasha Rocks America (stout żytni) oraz Cafe Silk Porter. Mam nadzieję, że będą jeszcze ciekawsze i z pewnością podzielę się swoimi wrażeniami.
