Spring 2010 22oz bomber poured into a Maudite snifter...
A: Coffee black with a minimal, tan head; wispy retention leaves no lace.
S: Roasted coffee / burnt malts; dark chocolate; some alcohol; some sweet bread and dark fruit in the background; molasses.
T: Rich maltiness... roast coffee and dark cocoa; currants; leafy hop bitterness toward the finish; very rich overall - lots of tiny complexities that add up to a great tasting Russian imperial stout.
M: Near full-bodied and velvety; luscious; kind of high carbonation, but that makes for a good palate washer.
D/O: Very drinkable and delicious... 10.5%??! Hard to believe.
Serving type: bottle
