4.7/5 rDev +9.3%
Pours dark like molasses with a coffee colored head that hangs around for the duration.
Smells of coffee, chocolate, molasses, and malt.
Big malt bomb with a bitter coffee/chocolate punch. Not overly sweet at all. The slight sweet caramel notes are well balanced by rich bitter notes of chocolate, coffee, and molasses. This is one big decadent brew, and my tatse buds are dancing.

4.68/5 rDev +8.8%
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a wide-mouthed glass
Inky black liquid with a dark inviting tan head
Aroma is full of toastyness, charcoal
The flavor is monstrous. Monstrously bitter, monstrously rich, lots of hops, lots of alcoholic warmth, dark chocolate finish that seems to last forever, with a few notes of cab sav red wine. Lots of espresso like notes, especially in the residual of slight creamyness in the midst of the monstrously massive bitterness.
This beer is very true to style. It is everything I expect from a Russian Imperial Stout and more.
