look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured in a pint glass.

A different approach than other Russian imperials I have tasted.

The color isn't as rich and doesn't stand out, but it's a very attractive chocolate-coffee brown.

The aroma is great- heavy chocolate, vanilla, some lemon.

The mouth feel is not very carbonated, almost smooth.

The finish is unlike other imperial stouts I have tasted. Very chocolate, some lemon, but the prominent flavor is chocolate. The coffee is slightly imbalanced and mellows in the finish after warming.

An excellent beer and worth trying.

4.45/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Bottle marked on bottom 3319 73W0657at 50 degrees into standard pint
Aroma very nice roasted malt
Head average (3 cm), creamy, tan, mostly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing excellent, covers entire glass with very small bubbles
Body is dark brown/black, opaque, without any light penetration at the edge.
Flavor of roasted malt; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate full, creamy, with soft carbonation

When I first had this back in 2008, I rated it as OK. With the further development of my palate, I will have to upgrade this to Outstanding, maybe even to Excellent. The aroma and appearance are definitely excellent while the taste is simply roasted and not complex. This is a great imperial stout.
