COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boris is a jet black colour with an off-white head. The aroma is dark chocolate and coffee. The flavour starts like espresso then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel.

On tap feral! Pours a jet black with a tanned head. Roasted coffee, cocoa and piney hops in the nose. Taste is incredibly smooth. Like a mocha bomb exploding on the palate. Loads of dark chocolate and espresso. Thick mouth feel. 11.5%...what alcohol? Hidden so well. Definitely worth the wait. Awesome beer!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at The Union Hotel, Newtown. Pours a jet black with a beige head. Aroma: malt, coffee, dark chocolate, spicy notes. Taste: malt, brown sugar, coffee, bitter cocoa. Mild funkiness. Mild citrus flavours. Mild to moderate bitterness. Creamy texture. Not particularly captivating, may have been just a bad batch or old keg, will definitely try again but was not particularly enthralled by this beer.

jmgreenuk (9449) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 8, 2017
Bottle at Slow Beer, Fitzroy, Melbourne. Poured almost black with a round bubbly off white head. The aroma is roasted malt, light coffee, dark chocolate. The flavour is liqourice bitter with a smooth, rich, oily liquorice malt, alcoholic, floral hop bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Full to medium bodied with flat carbonation. Lovely aroma but the liquorice and alcohol were present well into the finish and the lingering bitterness was not so great.

Deep dark brown colour with big dirty coffee brown head. Nose of malt, coffee and light fortified wine. Bold tar and molasses, burnt sugar upfront. Full of roasted malts and feint smokey chocolate toffee treacle flavours. Thick oily texture. Sturdy body. Super smooth. Sweet with some bitterness at the end. Very nice.

330mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out rich roasted malt upfront, with a fairly prominent espresso quality and some light toasted caramel. Flavour is along the same lines, with espresso and roasted malt upfront, low-medium sweetness, and a cocoa-y dry and roasty finish. Medium-bodied for the style. Well-rounded and robust. Excellent.

Oakes (17668) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016
Dark brown, inky body with no head. Has a sweet, molasses aroma with a touch of creosote. Soft body. On the palate, has dark brown sugars, light fruitiness. Sweet finish, again with nice sticky sugars.

Tasting at Matt’s
Black color, oily, no head. The aroma is based on dark bread, some coffee, light glue. The flavor has dark chocolate character, light residual sweetness, hints of tobacco, and a bit more evident liquorice.
Nice.

KeefOz (1838) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2016
Poured an opaque black with a three- to four-finger tan coloured dense foam head that retained very well and laced very well. Carbonation low. Aroma of sweet dark chocolate plus hints of coffee, brown sugar/caramel and vanilla. Taste of very sweet dark chocolate, dark fruits and soft toffee tones; no prominent roasted notes; low bitterness; very nice rich taste. Heavy body. Smooth becoming thick and syrupy as it warms and with a sweet finish. Nice - one to sip and savour!
