2013 Edition bottled on 3/18/2013 poured into a snifter. Gave a 1 finger head on the pour with a body as black as motor oil that hadn't been changed in 10 years. Head left a fair amount of lacing.
S- Huge hints of dark chocolate and expresso the minute you pour it. Sink your nose in the glass and you might get some plenty of roasted malts and a hint of coffee.
T- Roasted malts, dark, dark chocolate, and surprisingly an almost vanilla-like sweetness that creeps up of you but finishes bitter. Nicely balanced indeed.
M- Thick mouthfeel which is what you would expect from a powerhouse stout like this. Leaves and oily presence in the palate and on the lower side of carbonation.
Stone's Russian Imperial Stout is definitely a staple in the style. It has everything you could possibly want in an Imperial Stout, and some.
