Pours like motor oil into the glass. Hold it up to the light and suddenly there is no light. This is one black hole of a beer. The head is tan, thick and rich.
The nose is full of malt, chocolate fudge, caramel and coffee with a hint of the alcohol lurking beneath all the rest.
What a wonderful silky mouthfeel! This is so smooth and inviting it invites you to keep going long after good sense would tell you to stop.
This is heaven in a glass! Stone has brewed an incredible blend of chocolate, espresso, malt and molasses. The alcohol is hidden amongst all the rest of the flavors, no mean feat given the ABV.
Stone Imperial Russian Stout is everything it ought to be and much much more. More of these will be coming home all winter long.
