poured into a schnifter. slight head with a thick lacing. pours an almost black with dark brown head.
smell is pretty standard. to be honest im struggling to think of a way to describe it. its as grainy as i expected from an imperial stout but nothing too strong or noticeable.
the alchohol is masked very well and isnt so sweet that it gives you that heartburny feeling.
mouthfeel and drinkability are superb. much smoother and thin than other russian imperial stouts. incomparable to other commercially availabe beers of the style.
