Hoppin' Frog B.O.R.I.S.

BORIS the Crusher Oatmeal Imperial Stout - 9.4% from Akron Ohio.
Apparently BORIS stands for Bodacious Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout...cute. Apparently, this was an Imperial Stout winner at the Great American Beer Festival.
I was excited to see this at a recent trip to the Orlando Whole Foods, since nobody seems to carry this brewery locally.

It pours like oil, thick...syrupy, with no head (maybe it's the dishwashing soap we use).
It smells like coffee, maybe some molasses. You definitely taste the dark malts...some good roastiness. Thick mouthfeel with an earthy aftertaste. It's sweet, with some snap and a fairly clean aftertaste. Tasty!
