I am surprised at the varying tastes/appearance etc... of Imperial Russian Stouts. This experience was definitely a good one. A very good rich stout that pour nice and dark with very little head. There is very little fragrance with this pour so the taste will need to make or break this review. Well, it made it. A very tasty stout that does not linger too long in the mouth. Very drink-able and well worth the purchase.

Pours a deep black with a one finger thick foamy mocha head that fades slowly to a thick cap with moderate lacing.

Aroma dark roasted malt, sweet dark fruits and hints of alcohol.

Taste of dark malt, black coffee, sweet chocolate, a slight hop bitterness and a nice alcohol warming at the end.

Mouth Feel is Medium leaning heavy body with low carbonation, creamy smooth. As the beer comes to room temperature the booziness and sweetness increases.

Overall this is a very good Russian Imperial Stout. This was a great pick for my first North Coast Beer.
