22oz, October 2010
Boulevard tulip

A: Pours pitch black.  No light getting through there.  About a full finger of mocha colored head.  Looks to be good carbonation.  Little bubbles streaming up the glass.  Nice alcohol feet present.  Some mocha colored lacing sheeting too.

S: I'm getting lots of roasted malt character.  Deep dark chocolate notes.  Maybe some dark fruits, and maybe a dark cherry hint too.  Some coffee is there as well.  I don't know why but I think I detect a touch of oxidation.  We'll see.

T: Wow, chocolate and more chocolate!  Delicious beer.  Right at the front of the tongue you get bitterness that sticks with you.  Dark chocolate bitterness.  Really high cocao style chocolate.  In the middle of the mouth that chocolate meshes with some of the roasted charred malts.  Maybe some coffee and licorice.  Helps to smooth the beer a touch.  There ends up being some creaminess there too.  Mouth coating flavor.  In the finish, you are left with lingering dark cocao chocolate for days!  The alcohol is hidden nicely for being over 10%.  There is some warming but I don't taste it.

M: Full bodied beer.  Coats all corners of the mouth.

O: A-. Great chocolate RIS.

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!
