Wow, this is one hell of a brew. The 9% is not noticeable at all, but the chocolate flavors sure are! Appearance is good, but should have a larger head, especially considering this is a well carbonated brew. Scent is of chocolate, taste is of chocolate, but also some coffee flavor in there. There is a nice balance of hops and malt (malt being dominant here of course) that makes this brew very drinkable. I really can't get past the chocolate flavor here, this is almost a chocolate stout imo. Very good for the style, I was shocked at how quickly I finished this bottle.
Recommended, but how much I'm not sure, as I've yet to try many russian imperial stouts.
