My first Russian Imperial Stout. Will I bow down before Rasputin? Or will I persevere through the 12 oz serving? On to the beer:
It pours pitch black in a glass. One smell from the beer brings lots of flaovrs to the nose. Fruity, piney, chocolate, raw cane sugar, and alcohol flavors run around freely. This stuff is extremely complex, but I assume thats the nature of RIS's. A light roasted bitterness sits on the tongue after every sip, reminding me it's still a stout, but a very beefed-up one. At less than $2 for the bottle, it didn't drain my wallet, and I got something new and exciting.
