Stone russian imperial stout 2014 release. Consumed 1-22-15. Look is black with a dark tan head. First taste comes black licorice, anise and a little chocolate. After 3-4 sips the palate is coated with fuzz, tends to hide the first taste flavors. All in all a good brew. Sweet tasting after the first sips and the alcohol burn isn't there. Great stout by a great brewery. Stone should do a collaboration with valiant or black market. Or do a triple collaboration with those two. Amazing what collaborations do to an already fantastic stout. Two thumbs up.

Loved everything about this beer, the roasted malts were perfect for me, the hint of chocolate was great.

Pitch black, brown head. Alcohol, roasty malt nose. Taste is boozey, burnt, chocolate, some caramel sweetness coming through. Feels very thick with a little carbonation. Overall, this is in your face and intense. Makes Guinness look like Bud. It can't possibly get much bigger and blacker than this?
