look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Poured into a snifter very dark with a dark tan rocky head. Light could not possibly pass through this glass of wonderful darkness.

Aromas: Tremendous malt notes with a burnt hop aroma. Chocolate notes left and right. Nice mild coffee notes. The aromas are actually quite balanced with this style of beer.

Taste: Wow this one packs one incredibly lethal punch thats so great. Burnt hop notes dance around the pallate. It's very robust and sweet yet balanced between the maltiness, coffee notes and hops. The mouthfeel is real smooth and silky very much like melted dark chocolate.

Notes: This one is perfect for any cold winter night and not too shaby for a cool fall night. In fact the colder the night the better it can warm up the coldest of nights. I definately will have a stock of this beauty for the winter. I'm contemplating giving this masterpiece from Smuttynose fives across the board. Should I dare yes I do dare and will. For all those who adore Russian Imperial stouts this is for you Prost.
