About This Beer
This is the beer that started it all. B.O.R.I.S The Crusher is a gold standard of RIS, literally! After taking home the 2011 Gold at the Great American Beer Festival, Hoppin’ Frog has used this decadent sipper as the go-to base for their dark brew. From quadruple versions (aptly named Q.O.R.I.S) to barrel varieties like this Colorado-sourced barrel-aged iteration, B.O.R.I.S is a staple for any beer connoisseur’s fridge!
Each velvety sip of this full-bodied brew is laced with notes of rich, dark chocolate, creamy caramel, and freshly roasted coffee. Hints of oaky vanilla and bourbon cut through from the barrel aging. A whisper of sticky molasses, dark cherries, and ripe, juicy plums tickles the nose.
Thick Dark Rich Boozy
Okay, boozy with some sweetness and some coffee bitterness.
Note that I have the Rocky Mountain barrel aged version in the tiny cans. The barrel aging is not overwhelming. Chocolate and mild coffee notes.
very solid. can’t wait to try the other variants.
Sweet up front, chocolate finish, with notes of coffee in the background. Very definitely a Hoppin’ Frog RIS.
I love Tavour, and these beers are all fantastic. However, this is subpar.
sold beer, very rich
no adjuncts, no bs, just awesome stout. small can is perfect so I don’t have to feel bad about not sharing
Roasty, barrel & bourbon.
Lots of coffee at the start. Slight bitterness that lingers.
