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.

Fin (9224) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
On tap at Craft Covent Garden, London, Saturday 21st May 2016 in the company of Jackie and Simon Pours black with a light tan actually almost off-white head. A really good silky-smooth mouthfeel to this beer which is shot through with lots of coffee. Sweetness throughout tempers the bitter roastiness, vanilla and a little caramel, but coffee always there. Lovely beer. . A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov17 4.1
