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!

Draft: Dark brownish black color with medium brown head and no lacing. Aroma has rich cocoa malts and coffee notes. Flavor has bitter coffee and roasted cocoa malts. Okay overall but the added coffee makes it a little less smooth and balanced than Boris.

brokensail (14038) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Black in color with a thin tan head. Roasty coffee and dark chocolate aromas. Slight green pepper and green coffee. Some mild hazelnut and caramel. Flavor has a decent bit of sweet malts, dark chocolate, and green coffee. A touch acidic on the finish. Has some nice qualities, but enough flaws to put me off it.

mcberko (10551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out loads of high quality coffee upfront. Flavour brings out lots of coffee beans, a very subtle tartness, some dry cocoa and a little roast. Highly complex and deep, as usual for these Boris beers. Excellent.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle, at the brewpub. It pours a black body under a minimal sized, creamy tan head. There’s lots of coffee on the nose, mocha, chocolate and roasted malts. Not much hops hitting the nose. It’s full bodied, warming and nicely carbonated, oily, with flavors of coffee and mocha dominating. Roasted malts and dark chocolate too. A decent coffee kind of bitterness too, lasting for a good while. Lasting finish. Wonderful and tasteful. 150616

Idiosynkrasie (5317) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2015
650ml bottle. Jet black colour with small, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, brown head. Intense, roasty dark malty aroma, notes of milk chocolate and dark chocolate, coffee. Taste is slightly sweet dark malty, roasty, notes of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, coffee; warming alcoholic finish. Flawless, clean and concentrated, though almost a bit restricted and simple.

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.
