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!

jookos (6113) - FINLAND - MAR 16, 2017
bottle. black. cold, but still lovely intense smooth dark malty roasty, soft sweet coffee beany nose. some vanilly, sweetness just balanced and right. full bodied, super easy for the abv. coffee, the slight salty roasty kind, fresh french. will try to report back as it warms up, but right now it’s behaving extremely well. haven’t had this smooth an impy since the yetis.

update: didn’t change much. didn’t get overly hot or oily, remained drinkable, smooth, with a slight sugary bite. real nice.

martjoobolut (3809) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle (from beergium). Pours black with dark brownish head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is roast, coffee, sweetness, malt. Flavor is sweet and bitter, coffe, burnt roast, malt, massive dark chocolate. milky notes. Finish is dark chocolate bitter. Overall: good, but I prefered the regular version. The burnt/over roasted coffee notes are something i don’t like (see also for example Pőhjala Must Kuld Columbia).

MelvinKalksma (1370) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2017

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, mocha, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a medium dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and medium dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is close to not being there at all. Amazing appearance though. The flavour is insane, with loads of chocolate, mocha and coffee. God, I love coffee stouts.
