The most excellent Russian Imperial Stout from Barley's is worth the trip. Dark black with a solid head of tight beaded bubbles with good lacing. Coffee and chocolate on the nose with hints of crème brulee. Subtle coffee and bitter sweet chocolate up front, lots going on here. Crème brulee and chocolate in the aftertaste sprinkled with coffee. More aggressively hopped than in the past, but far from overly bitter keeping within the flavor profile of a RIS. One of the most memorable beers I have ever had that keeps me coming back to Barley's on my voyages up to Wooster Ohio. Enjoyed in a snifter.
