Not sure how I managed to join Beeradvocate in 2010, and am only getting around to drinking this fantastic brew just now. Oh well, I enjoyed it on tap this evening, and it was quite delightful. I have elected to forgo my normal review narrative, because frankly, it's all been said. This is a beer truly deserving of it's world class rating. I'd be interested in aging this one, or giving the barrel aged version a go. Glad to recommend this brew. Cheers!

Normal look for a stout. Strong roasted sweet smell. Great toasty malt taste with a dark chocolate taste. Medium heavy body with the same amount of carbonation and creamy. Great russian imperial stout

Pours a solid, thick jet-black with an inch of creamy cocoa-colored foam that just sits for days.

This has a power punch of an aroma on it, with a great big rummy-booze kick that blends with the dark chocolate, and a touch of a smooth French roast. It’s big and bold on the palate as well, with some of that dark chocolate and rounded roasty goodness. And so accessible.
