What's in a name? In this case: everything.
A rare instance of truth in advertising, this is indeed Bodacious,
and it combines the flavor profiles of two of my favorite Styles.
I love Oatmeal Stouts, so rich, chewy, and creamy and milk chocolaty.
I love Russian Imperial Stouts, so strong, malty and rich dark chocolaty.
BORIS is the best of both worlds. What happens when these two worlds collide
is a bodacious blend that has become one of my Top 3 favorite beers.
The mouthfeel is so creamy, and smooth. it's like chocolate velvet.
Rich huge chocolate fudge flavor, vanilla, toffee,roast coffee,chewy caramel, smooth oats, sweet malts, cappuccino. Very satisfyingly complex. Rich, chewy and delicious.The hops are present and perfectly bite the rich, creamy oat goodness. Wow, what a fantastic aftertaste. more than taste, it's an entire sensory overload. Fills my whole palate with the tastiest, smoothest flavors. Bodacious indeed. I want more. Unavailable in California, WTF?!
