look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a little forcefully into a pint glass.

A- It poured black with 3 fingers of chocolate milk coloured head. Its really dark. Light doesn't get through.

S- Really malty. Coffee is most apparent. Chocolate is there too. A little fruity undertone. Kind of like black cherry. Smells dark and sweet.

T- The first thing that hits my taste buds is coffee. Very malty and full tasting. The coffee taste subsides, leaving the chocolate and some vanilla. Then comes a little hop back, which is the only trace of hops I get while drinking this. Very faint, but it balances the taste very well.

M- Thick and full. A little carbonation, but not much. I could stand to have it a bit thicker, but I still love the mouth feel.

D- very drinkable. Currently my favourite russian imperial stout. Very solid drink. Big fan.

Pours a dark black with huge tan foamy head. Wonderful lacing all the way down. Nose is very inviting, theres the roasted maltsand a hint of piney hops. Strong and bold malt taste upfront. Some coffee and dark chocolate flavours and a bitter/dry warming finish. Finally a stout with the body it should have! Doesnt feel watery, heavy and chewy mouthfeel: excellent. This is one great stout. I'll definately be on the lookout for more next time.
