Hoppin Frog "B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher"
Hoppin Frog Brewery - Akron, Ohio USA
Imperial Stout (ABV 9.4%)

[Best served in a Snifter]

Rating: 4.1/5.0

Aroma: 9/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 9/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 16/20

Poured a thick dark rich black with a very small (less than 1 finger) dark medium brown creamy head that was fully diminishing and had fair lacing.

The aroma hits you right off the bat with a strong tawny port alcohol scent followed by dark roasted cereal malts and a leathery yeast odor with hints of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruitiness, oats and a touch of toffee.

It tasted mildly sweet with a note of toffee and dried fruit in the beginning then progressed into a nice bitter-sweet flavor with strong coffee and dark chocolate notes at the finish with the flavor lasting an average duration on the palate.

Mouthfeel was extremely full in body and a little syrupy yet rather creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation.

Overall an awesome tasting Imperial Stout which has the flavors blending so well that the heavy alcohol odor barely shows itself in the taste..
