A Note on This Beer
Today’s Barrel Aged T.O.R.I.S. the Tyrant: Triple Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout is an absolute beast of a brew… and we’re ready to unleash it into your fridge.
- It’s rated #7 Imperial Oatmeal Stout in the World on Untappd.
- It was made by the World Beer Cup-winning brewers at Hoppin’ Frog.
- Last time we wrangled this boozy monster out of Ohio, it earned an astonishing 4.43 rating from our members!
You might have missed out then, but today you can redeem yourself by snagging a bottle of this chocolate-charred creation.
Every silky-smooth sip of Barrel-Aged T.O.R.I.S. showcases Hoppin’ Frog’s expertise in booze and barrels. It even beats out prized offerings from Fremont, Pipeworks, and Mikkeller on UT! Here are a few reasons why:
Bold Flavors: Vanilla-soaked cocoa? Check. Caramelized plums? Double-check. Melted Godiva chocolate with hints of tobacco and new leather? Triple-check. The Oatmeal Stout base keeps the mouthfeel silky smooth before the Bourbon enraptures the taste buds with warm, boozy bliss.
Bourbon Barrels: The brewery likes to keep the identity of their barrels a mystery, and they won’t tell us exactly how long they age this brew, but the tongue doesn’t lie when it comes to Bourbon! This Stout is drenched in oaky caramel-vanilla luxury that could only come from freshly emptied, top-shelf Bourbon barrels.
Boozy Strength: BBA T.O.R.I.S. totes a bangin’ 13.8% ABV. The boozy flavor is prominent on the palate but sips unexpectedly smooth for a beer this big.
We only snagged a teeny-tiny 15 cases of this Bourbon-spiked treat this time around, and they are bound to go faster than you can say Triple Oatmeal Imperial Stout! Don’t let this monstrously flavorful brew hop away before you get a taste.
