B.O.R.I.S. the Crusher

  • Bodacious Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout, 9.4% ABV, Hoppin’ Frog, Akron, OH

    On draught at Chappy’s Tap Room and Grille, Moraine, OH

    Opaque black with a thin caramel-beige head and collar. Rich malt aroma with notes of molasses, coffee, alcohol, and sweet cocoa. Full bodied with a rich, heavy texture, smooth and creamy. Very low carbonation. Big flavours – bitter, roasty, bittersweet chocolate, roast coffee, low esters. Some baked raisin with molasses (Boston brown bread) but not sweet, and a nutty note (pecan?). Awesome! Alcohol is noticeable but not hot. Bits of foam remain on the glass at the finish. Substantial and satisfying beer.
