Hoppin’ Frog – Barrel Aged B.O.R.I.S. Oatmeal-Imperial Stout – 22 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. 9.4% abv. From Trade on Ratebeer.com
Appearance: Pours a midnight brown with a fluffy brown head that eventually subsides.
Aroma: Bourbon, vanilla, graham cracker, burnt sugar, toasted coconut and marshmallow. Not too much wood.
Taste: Tons of bourbony goodness. Roasted malt, coffee, hop spice. The after tastes lends a decent amount of wood flavor
Mouthfeel: Slightly fizzy, not as soft and creamy as most Barrel Aged Imperial Stouts.
Overall: This beer is money. Lots of bourbon notes, but not too sweet for my liking. Very big and balanced.
