A - Black. Jet black. Absolutely opaque. Little bit of brown-red foam on top. Perfect for the style, except for one thing - I can see just far enough into it to see that there's a *lot* of sediment in there. Nothing on the bottle mentioned having to pour slowly. Got to dock points for that.
S - Caramel and molasses. Smells as dark as it looks. Can't smell it from across the room, but at least can smell it from a few inches away.
T - There's that molasses again - a lot of it. Some hop bitterness is there in the taste that isn't there in the smell. And yeah, that 9.7% ABV makes itself known. Long lingering toasted malt finish. Good stuff, although not as complex as some others.
M - Well, at least I can't *taste* all that sediment I saw. Rich and creamy, just like you'd hope for. Not quite as heavy as some others in the style - but for a Russian Imperial, I want it heavy.
Overall, well, that's 4s down the line. A good choice in the category, although not a world-beater.
