Bottled May 15, 2009, bottle # 1038
Pours a very dark, rich dense brown hue that is not nearly as black as others in the style; little to no head at all even when a more vigorous pour is attempted. Oily and viscous looking coming out of the bottle.
Getting a good deal of booze up front on the aroma; rich roastiness, though and some bittersweet chocolate notes; a touch of sweeter plumminess as well. Just a bit hot on the nose for the booze still. Rich and roasty with fresh coffee flavor; some residual sweetness in the finish but not much at all; kiss of alcohol; and the roastiness lingers on the palate after each sip. Lush and viscous MF with barely any noticeable carbonation, rich body. Definitely a sipper, but a pleasant and warming brew. Hits all the good spots for the style even if it is a little hot on the nose.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
appearance - As black as black can be with dark brown edges. Had a semi medium aggressive pour which surprisingly resulted in zero head.
smell - dark chocolate is the most prominent thing that comes to mind
taste - Major coffee and chocolate hints to be found. Somewhat nutty. Not much boozyness to be found here.
mouthfeel - Medium thickness. Not quite as thick as I like my imperial stouts to be. Practically no carbonation.
overall - I'm in the netherlands for a month due to a work project, so obviously I immediately searched out the solid offerings this country has. Turns out Europe does not have the infatuation with stouts like we do here in America. Overall though, this is a pretty solid russian imperial stout that has managed to soothe my needs for a European stout.
