A - Pours opaque dark brown, almost black with thick, rich, tan head.
S- hints of coffee, dark chocolate, just a tiny bit of lacquer thinner. Not offensive in any way, just can't think of another way to word it.
T - Rich coffee flavor, hints of lightly charred fig. A bit of toasted marshmallow in there. Heavy on the dark chocolate, similar to a 70% cacao chocolate bar. Alcohol is very present, almost numbing the tongue.
M - Very peppery with creamy finish. Nicely breaks up the tongue coating body.
O - I prefer my RIS's to have at least a touch of sweetness, somthing this beer lacks. Very tasty, but not exactly what I was looking for.
Serving type: on-tap

Still one of my favorite Russian imperial stouts to this day. Pours a pitch black with a solid tan head and nice clinging lacing on the glass. Chocolate and coffee on the nose with deeply roasted grains. Thick coating mouthfeel with dark chocolate and heavily roasted coffee, a hint of vanilla, and a fantastic background of cocoa that is not grainy. Lots of deeply roasted malt flavor that comes through in waves. An imperial stout lovers dream. Better on tap, but the bottle is still very nice. Cheers!
