BORIS the Crusher made with coffee from the Hippie Coffee Company in Canton, OH. Freshly roasted coffee flavor and aroma add satisfying levels of complexity to this robust stout, perfectly complimenting its intense, rich roasted character. Cold infusion with whole coffee beans keeps the bitterness low and the flavor high!

Dark beer with an attractive cascading brown head. Enticing nose of code bean and chocolate. This is definitely a coffee beer. Lots of dark caramel and toffee sweetness with bitter coffee bean and dark chocolate flavors. The finish is like caramel coffee. Very nice addition to a great stout.

Bottle. Pours slightly opaque black with a medium dark brown head that dissipates fairly quickly with good lacing. Aroma is coffee, ashtray, roast, cocoa. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, coffee - a bit stale perhaps - ashtray, cocoa, molasses. Light acidity. Medium body, creamy. Very coffee forward.

Bottle - Lots of dark roast coffee and molasses with a touch of burnt notes. Jet brown with a decent brown head. Coffee bitterness and dark roast with some dark malts. Nice.

Countbeer (5139) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2015
Bomber: shared with Iluvatarmilan in a Chouffe glass at 13 degrees Celsius: Pitch black with a brown head. Aromas of coffee, coffee roast, roast, malt roast, hint of marzipan, deep, dark and black! Flavours of coffee, coffee roast, coffee beans, mocha, some chocolate, dust (like pepper dust), bitters, some cacoa... Nice stuff! Aftertaste is a mix of coffee, roast, coffee roast, bitters... Low carbo, creamy thick close to silky mouthfeel, close to full bodied.

Martinus (3570) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2015
Black colour, tan head. Aroma of coffee, espresso, caramel, roasted malts. Coffee flavour, light milk, quite sweet. Finish coffee, and then BORIS is coming out.

Bottle. Black pour. Aroma of burned coffee and malt. Taste is smooth, with milky coffee, roasted malt and a little cacao and vanilla. Velvety round and gritty mouthfeel. Very sophisticated and tasty.

Heavy too overwelming coffee aroma, but taste is nice and balanced. Great coffee stout.
