About This Beer
The folks at Ohio’s Hoppin’ Frog call Barrel-Aged D.O.R.I.S. The Destroyer one of “the most complex beers [they’ve] ever brewed.”
If you’ve tasted any of their other phenomenal dark brews, you know how bold that statement is. But it might be true! To create it, the brewers took their beloved Double Oatmeal Imperial Stout and aged it in Bourbon Barrels.
Creamy vanilla and savory oak notes completely shroud the 10.5% ABV. Dark chocolate and coffee shape the brew’s smooth body into a liquid indulgence that could replace even the most luxuriant chocolate cake.
Thick Rich Boozy
Very nicely aged (2019 bottle)...nice tobacco flavor and balanced bourbon taste
Very velvety goodness.
I couldn't get behind this one. Just wasn't my thing
Roast, Malt, Chocolate
Stands the test of time. Deep malt flavor, nice barrel.
Absolutely delicious, and dangerous.
A bit flat. No head on the beer and not much flavor. Old bottle?
Little to no barrel
Great flavor - good depth. It is definitely better when it comes to temp a bit. I liked the dry hopping, though I don’t know what kind of hop was used.
Good but to low ABV
Illegible date on the can. Prefer the non-BA version. Found the barrel flavors somewhat at odds with the hopping.
Something off on this. I loved my adjunct BBA from these guys.
hoppin’ frog is one of those breweries that is an insta-buy whenever they’re on Tavour. The Frog always comes through
Solid Russian Imperial stout, just didn’t get any barrel flavor unfortunately.
I just wasn’t feeling the flavor on this one. There was a biting bitterness that dragged it down for me.
Tasty, but couldn’t decide whether it wanted to be BBA or RIS. also, site says 10.5% ABV, can says 12.7%.
