COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a nice dark brown to almost black. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and some caramel. Taste of coffee, chocolate, espresso, and hints of vanilla and caramel. Medium to full bodied beer, not much head or lacing present. Pretty smoth and easily drinkable for an imperial stout.

DialSquare (2599) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bomber from Kenny Rd Market. Black pour with a big brown head. Aroma is roasted coffee, oats, chocolate. Tastes are bitter coffee, cocoa, dark malt, bread, oatmeal. Slick chewy palate a little thinner than I remember on other boris’s. I’m typically always a fan of coffee treatment to imp stouts, but I have the regular rated higher than what I got here. Will have to do a side by side some day.

Taste is of sugary vanilla and caramel malts with a very roasted coffee flavor and then a deep bitter dark chocolate .... Has an oily and thick mouthfeel .... With a dry bitter coffee/espresso flavor lingering ... Excellent stuff abv hidden well
