B.O.R.I.S The Crusher - Oatmeal - Russian Imperial Stout - Hoppin' Frog Brewing - ABV 9.4%

Pours pitch black with a dark tan head , Aroma is of big roasted coffee , cocoa ,with brown sugar or molasses and a bit of booze. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy , the taste is of big roasted coffee with that burnt ash quality like your smoking a cigar , also dark chocolate , toffee , vanilla and some booze round things out. There is a bit of a sweetness that I've come to appreciate with this style , it balances out the bold roastiness and the high alcohol of this beer. This brew has the flavor profile you would expect from a Russian Imperial Stout with big bold and rich flavors.  A perfect winter sipper for the those cold northeast nights.  

                                                     RATING 8.5 out of 10


Mr. Beer Jangle

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals etc...so pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
