Bottle poured into glass
Appearance Beer is a black cloudy color. Head is a nice tan color. Head lingers on for quite awhile. I dont see a lot of carbonation bubbles through glass not sure if the beer is to dark to see these or there are just not a lot of bubbles.
Smell Nice chocolate aroma is the first smell I get. A hint of coffee is also present.
Taste A chocolate taste is present. Sweet malt is also tasted. Finishes a little bitter. Very smooth beer that is mild as well. Does not taste like a 9.00% but I know it is.
Mouthful Ultra low carbonation, a very smooth beer.
Drikability For a Russian stout goes down pretty good. A little to rich to drink to fast, must be sipped, a very nice beer.
