Day 144 Drink: Hoppin' Frog Barrel Aged B.O.R.I.S.

The brainchild of brewmaster Fred Karm, Hoppin' Frog Brewing is located in Akron, Ohio. The brewery focuses on full flavored beer styles and then comes up with twists to add layers of extra flavor.

B.O.R.I.S. stands for Bodacious Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout.

Hoppin' Frog Barrel Aged B.O.R.I.S. is a 9.4 percent alcohol by volume heavyweight. This beer has picked up a ton of flavor from the barrel and put it on top of an already great beer. Nice vanilla, black cherry and raisin notes. Overall a big beer that is well designed.
