Deep, dark brown with a volcanic head that settles into a nice layer of brown foam. Floating particulate obvious in the glass.
Aroma of roasted malt and a touch of smoke. Smooth and thick on the palate, like a milkshake of roasted malt, molasses and alcohol. Thick and syrupy-sweet.
A big, bold, anything but bashful beer. Yowza.

4.15/5 rDev +0.2%
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.
