Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes: This might be one of the smoothest barrel-aged beers I’ve ever had. @hoppinfrogbrewery Rocky Mountain BORIS

This was incredibly smooth.  So smooth that I wasn’t upset at the price point of it.  Granted I shared this with a few friends over an almost shared birthday.  It’s a lot easier to spend $20 on a bottle of beer when you know that numerous people are going to enjoy it.

The boozy characteristics that are usually prevalent in BA beers like this were missing.  Instead, you got the nice caramel and oakiness without that punch-in-the-face booze.

I’ve had the regular B.O.R.I.S. and this is a definitely step up from that. If you’re looking at this now, and wondering “should I?” — yes, yes you should.  Buy it and share it with friends.  They’ll thank you later.

Description

Aged in very special whiskey barrels to add a super-smooth, buttery, and complex whiskey character to our multi-award-winning BORIS The Crusher Oatmeal Imperial Stout. More assertive than our standard Bourbon Barrel Aged BORIS Stout, this rare version is a testament to our hard work and dedication in bringing our customers the very best.
