4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle I enjoyed on the couch after finally getting my dad’s cd collection on the shelves. Oily as hell thick black pour, viscous, moderate tan head, gentile lacing leaving that milky way spiraling. Aroma is ashy, earthy, roasted coffee. Slight oak and prunes in the finish of the nose. Massive nose all around. Flavor has more of the Russian dark fruit, loads of ash, dark chocolate liqueur, bitter coffee grounds. Classic RIS flavors to the max. Luscious, massive, delicious.

Pours an opaque very dark brown with a rich, dark brown head. Rich chocolate, oatmeal, and vanilla nose. Viscous and smooth mouthfeel. Flavors are remarkably more complex than what’s detected in the nose. Smokiness, oatmeal, vanilla, chocolate, date, and olive. Yummy.

Better than its brother Boris, Doris is an excellent imperial. Almost no alcoholic bite, this one has big flavors of oatmeal, chocolate and molasses.
