I've posted a few reviews of Stone beers so far with a disclaimer that I used to dislike Stone Brewery. At this point my mind is completely changed, and i'm enormously impressed with this beer, as well as the last two i reviewed, Ruination IPA and Juxtaposition Black Pilsner.
Russian Imperial is very fluid and light bodied with little carbonation and a strongly structured long lasting head. I poured this out into a pint glass and watched the head die down slowly over the black, chocolaty body. The taste was by far the beast part of the beer, rich chocolate, faint coffee, raisins and molasses. Overall one of the better stouts I've had this year (only surpassed by a few barrel aged ones such as The Abyss which dent your pocket quite a bit more).
