Very similar to the reg version. Subtle yet delightful coffee notes on the back end that give this a nice twist. The yr of aging I gave this one helped add to the smooth, mellow nature of it compared to a fresh IRS, but may have led to the espresso notes being more in the background than if it were fresh. Very good

After letting this sit for six months, it turned out to be a sensational coffee beer. Much more interesting than the normal Russian Imperial.
