12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter
Has the standard coffee, chocolate, creamy flavor of a Russian Imperial Stout. Here's the kicker: the distinctive flavor that sets it apart from other RIS'? A mix of a flavor of cherries. Chocolate, coffee, cream and cherries.
A distinctive RIS. Excellent.
Serving type: nitro-bottle

Heard a lot of good things about this beer, and it did not disappoint. The appearance is near-perfect. The beer is night-black with an off-white head of about two-finger widths. It leaves a nice lacing down the side of the glass. The aroma is robust, full of chocolate and roasted barely. The taste is equally robust. At first sip, the overwhelming taste was of dark chocolate, but as I drank it, roasted coffee came to the forefront. There is just a hint of alcohol, but nothing that would suggest the 9% abv. There was also a certain sweetness that I lingered on the tongue along with a mild hop bitterness. The mouthfeel was rich and creamy with a modest carbonation. Overall, this beer is outstanding on every level.
