3.53/5 rDev -14.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Had on tap at New World Tavern, Plymouth--served into a pint glass.
Appearance: black in color, 1/4 inch head, opaque, minimal carbonation
Smell: roasted malt and cocoa
Taste: big time espresso, roasted malt, chocolate, and light traces of nut
Mouthfeel: medium-heavy bodied, low carbonation, sweet with roasty bitterness
Overall: An above average roasty RIS. If you like your RIS to have big coffee flavors, this is the beer for you. I would like to see a bit more creaminess with this. This is not a bad beer, but with so many great RIS, this is just above average for the style.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from the bomber into a pint glass.
Review from notes: January 28th, 2014.
A: Nice. Black and cloudy, can't see through. Tan head which sticks to the glass.
S: Chocolate and malt. More malt than chocolate, almost bitter.
T: Bitter front and end with smooth middle, can't pinpoint the bitterness.
M: Some carbonation, but smooth overall.
O: Good. This is a nice example of a Russian Imperial Stout with plenty of ABV bite. A bit too roasty for my tastes, but still good.
Serving type: bottle
