Yes, I love this beer. It's on my "Damn that's a good beer!" list. And yes, I say that every time I have it!

Appearance - Dark brown-black, with a beautiful reddish cast when held in front of light.

Smell - "Damn that's a good beer!" Yes, when I smell it too! Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, raisin, toffee, malty, nutty. All that and yet not too sweet.

Taste - Same as smell: chocolate, coffee, vanilla, raisin, toffee, malty, nutty notes. Bitter chocolate aftertaste."Damn that's a good beer!"

Mouthfeel - Coating syrup feel.

Overall - Still my favorite Russian Imperial Stout. Dangerous because it's way too drinkable. No problem consuming a growler with a little help from a friend. All versions of DA should be consumed, but the original will always rein supreme! - Thanks Brad!

This is part of the most epic stout tasting ever. This from Mistakebythelake

A-dark black with tan head and lacing
S-chocolate and slight bit of vanilla
T-chocolate and lots of roastiness. I am more and more impressed with this brewery the more I have of it
M-gosh of so smooth. Medium bodied and creamy. Can I give this a 6?
D-wow. This is insane. I'd like to give this a 6 as well.
