A - pours completely opaque with a thick 1/2 inch khaki head on top.

S - decadent roasted coffee, intense dark chocolate, minerals, sweet cream, full on roasted malts. Coffee coated raisins.

T - follows the nose to a tee. Charred coffee, tons of dark chocolate, sweet cream, chocolate malts and coffee dominate with some lightly scorched caramel underneath. Finishes dry with strong coffee, chocolate, and hints of sweet charred caramel.

M - creamy lush body with a good amount of lively carbonation.

This is a coffee and chocolate explosion in your mouth. I've had this bottle for 4 months do it's not super fresh but it taste like its straight from the tit. This is one of the best coffee RIS's I've had the pleasure of tasting. This is a must have.

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.
