One of the beers that lives up to the hype, the mysterious Cyrillic and the mad monk on the label. The half inch head was formed by millions of miniscule bubbles. The smooth potency of the flavor makes it stand out. I am an Edmund Fitzgerald fan, and this stout is so much better. My first North Coast brew, so I will have to sample more via the great selection/make your own six at Andersons.

Wow, very nice beer. Malty and heavy with an alcohol after taste.
Good buzz while sipping slowly.
great before meal beer.
I am beginning to really appreciate this more unique and complex tasting beers.
I need to invest in a few nice glasses or goblets for these nights I try each one out to get a better smell and appearance review.

Appearance - Dark, opaque, black body, very fine carbonation makes a small amount of creamy light brown head. Classic and inviting stout characteristics.

Smell - Heavy, roasty,chocolaty, and slightly smoky aroma

Taste - The thick, dark, chocolaty malt dominates the begininning of the taste and smoothy gives way to a slight bitter tinge of hops at the end of the taste. A very well balanced flavor, and drinkable. A well crafted beer and example of what a stout should be.

Mouthfeel - Thick, smooth, creamy, and delightful

Overall - A great example of a Russian Imperial stout that is readily available in most places. A must have
