Notes from 11/06/10
A:Pours a non transparent oil black with a fingers worth of tan head that slowly
falls leaving very nice lacing down the glass.
S:Nose picks up pleasant roasty malts, chocolate, vanilla, and some molasses in the mix
as well. Very inviting and pleasing.
T:Flavor is just as the nose detects, roasty malts up front and in the middle leading into
the backend where chocolate and vanilla start to dominate the palate. Some hops also
make their way in on the backend. Very nicely balanced but just enough to still let the individual flavors come thru.
M:A solid body is on this one with ample carbonation, palate is left very moist with a nice coating of chocolate that lingers on the tongue. A very small hint of alcohol is in there but for the most part very well hidden.
D:There has been a lot of hyped talked around this and I was pretty excited to try it and
I was not disappointed. Rich and complex flavor that goes down very smoothly and very easy for the ABV. This is one I could drink all night long and probably get myself in trouble doing so. Seek this one out.

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!
