Bottle poured into a 16 ounce Goose Island Glass
The Appearance is black with a thick brown head that dissolves into a thin brown head. The lacing is maintained constantly when tilting the glass.
The aroma is Chocolatey, sweet coffee like with dark roasted malts.
T: Slight chocolate and coffee presence; sweet black currants, slight alcohol presence blended nicely with a dark roasted malt.
The mouthfeel is thick with high carbonation.
Overall, this is a great russian Imperial stouts. I would have to say that it tastes very similar to the Espresso Imperial Russian Stout, except this one doesn't include the espresso bomb flavor that the other has. This is a stripped down version of its Espresso counterpart. This is as very smooth Russian Imperial stout. It goes down easy, and one can't taste the alcohol.
