Hoppin’ Frog D.O.R.I.S. The Destroyer Double Imperial Stout
I have no idea how old this is bottle of Hoppin’ Frog D.O.R.I.S. The Destroyer Double Imperial Stout is, it has a red cap so maybe that’s a clue? Wow this is one BIG beer, and not just because it is 10.5% ABV either. This Russian Imperial Stout hits you with a super thick and syrupy mouth-feel. The roasted malt flavor is huge, lots of dry bakers chocolate, big molasses with a bit of black licorice creeping in there (but not too much). The finish is really dry with a nice bit of hop bitterness as well. Not as good as either version of BORIS in my opinion, but if you are a fan of this kind of big stout I would say you should seek this out. Definitely the kind of beer to stick in the cellar to age for a rainy day.
