FERAL BREWING BORIS RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT

Feral Brewing Boris Russian Imperial Stout. A strange choice for hot and sunny Western Australia, a Russian Imperial Stout (RIS) - one of the heaviest, richest dark beers you can get your hands on.

To add to the confusion it won the Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA) 2013 Best Porter. The RIS style is a favourite among beer enthusiasts / nerds so it’s a courageous move to have a crack at it.

It’s a beautiful sight - jet black with a creamy, coffee-coloured head. Surprisingly there isn’t much aroma. Full bodied, luscious with a full mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Rich and smooth chocolate flavours with a slightly bitter dark chocolate finish. At 11.5% and for the beer nerds, OG 1101, this is a beer to sip and savour. Despite the high alcohol content it’s extremely drinkable and smooth without being boozy.

This has got to be one of the best Russian Imperial Stouts I’ve ever tasted.

 

10/10
