Hoppin’ Frog Brewery adds prestige at every step when making their Barrel Aged D.O.R.I.S. the Destroyer. For its boozy brown sugar, dark chocolate and oaky spice., it earns an incredible 4.28 on Untappd, but a even more staggering 4.58 among the Tavour community that has tried this beer before.
Hoppin’ Frogstarts with a two-time GABF gold-winning Imperial Stout, then applies their high ABV skill to it, boosting it to a tingling 10.5% ABV. They pressured the state of Ohio to relax the alcohol cap on beer, knowing what extra booze can bring: mind-spinning caramel-laced showstopping smoothness.
Craving even more intensity they age it in bourbon whiskey barrels to ignite complex notes of spice, dark fruit, and burnt brown sugar. Molasses on the nose melts as warm butterscotch flows over toasted chestnuts and candied figs, with cinnamon and a touch of clove rising from the spicy bourbon. A boozy sting with a hint of dark chocolate lingers in a bittersweet finish.
Ohio craft beer drinkers would claim that Hoppin’ Frog is a primary innovator in the dark beer world by continuously adding new rich flavorful layers to their boozy dark masterpieces. Barrel-Aged D.O.R.I.S. is one of the deepest yet with extreme depth of roasted richness and oatmeal smoothness, big booze, and bourbon.
