750mL bottle. 2011/ zombie. Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.
Pours oil black with two fingers of deep khaki head. Small pods lacing.
Nose is pretty good but seems fairly subdued. Cocoa, roast malts and burnt sugar.
Taste is a sweet blend of chocolate, soy sauce, coffee, cherry pits, rum soaked fig/dates and a dollop of alcohol heat. A fantastic blend.
Excellent heavy tongue-coating feel with light carbonation. Lingering sweet finish.
This is a great imperial stout. I think it might be too sweet to really be a Russian imperial but it's freakin good. Highly recommended and I'd definately like to get more sometime.
