This is pretty much the standard for American Russian imperial stouts. I can’t imagine the obscene landscape of American stouts without a heavy nod to this old dirty bastard.
Dark as night. Heavy, but not overwhelming. Loads of deep roasted malts dance in a chocolate/coffee tango. It smells great, tastes great, is widely available and will never fail you if you are in need of RIS-fix.
If you are looking to jump from the Guinness-train and embark on a solo adventure into the dark world of imperial stouts - hitch a ride on this bad boy.
