Fellowship Boris Arabica – Strange Fellows Brewing

From Strange Fellows Brewing in Vancouver comes their fourth and last beer of 2016 in their fellowship club the “Fellowship Boris Arabica” a version of their Boris Russian Imperial Stout.  The beer pours an opaque black with a brown head.  The aroma consists of huge coffee notes, roasted malts, vanilla, oak and a creamy finish.  The flavour is of burnt coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, earth, oak, cream, hints of red wine from the barrels.  The alcohol content comes in at 8%.  I’m not sure if I preferred the original version of Boris or this one but this one was still very tasty.  Regardless this is a very tasty beer.
