Before I jump into tonight’s review…
Last night I talked about enjoying some beer with friends Sean and Kerry. Well, the coup de grâce of the evening was the year-old bottle of Hoppin Frog Barrel Aged B.O.R.I.S. that came out. Many thanks to Sean for sharing this treat!
The B.O.R.I.S. is a HUGE, but delicious brew. It’s a Russian imperial stout aged in whiskey barrels. Best shared with friends, it tastes every bit like 9.4% ABV. The flavors are complex – oatmeal, whiskey, oak, vanilla, dark fruit, spice. There is A LOT going on here. That said, every bit of it is absolutely delicious!
