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.

Bottled 1/13. Bourbon barrel aged at 10%. Pours a near black with very dark brown edges, one finger thick soapy light brown head. Settles to a thin layer with a few streaks of lace on the glass. Smell: chocolate cake batter. Tons of chocolate, no roast, sweet (faded) bourbon note, molasses and prune. Taste: dark chocolate brownies, tons of dark brown sugar, earthy note, toasted brown bread note. Mostly it's sweet and chocolaty with added booze sweetness. Full bodied, low carbonation, syrupy-light feel. Tasty.
