WOW!! Be careful with this one. It pours like the finest motor oil available. Super-dark, super-rich with little head. This bomber will leave you bombed by the end if your not careful. Great chocolate, oatmeal, and slight alcohol taste upfront. I detected a nice, clean, coffee, roasted malt and molassas-like finish. While there isn't much of a head, it drinks rather creamy. If you are looking for a Big, I mean Big beer. This one is for you. It was worth the wait, as it took a while for me to locate a bottle. Drink responsibly...this one could hit you like a hammer as the alcohol seems more prevelant as the beer opens. What a great imperial.

Pours a dark jet black. No head, just the thinnest tan ring around the edge. No lacing.
Smells like booze. Minimal other aromas, maybe a hint of roasted malt and sweetness.
Taste is super thin, watery, mild sweetness, molasses and alcohol. Nothing lingers. Really disappointing. As it warms it get bigger and has some chocolate and coffee flavors, but still unusually thin and watery.
Thin mouthfeel. Very watery, alcohol is prevalent but not something that gets in the way.
Big let down. Maybe the most watery stout ever. Not much flavor either. I don't get what went wrong here. I sipped it, tasted little. Let it warm to room temp and still got a watery, boozy miss that only got a hair more flavor and body...

A - Pours a motor oil black with a very thin tan head.
S - Dark roasted malts and dark chocolate.
T - Lots of dark roasted malts, coffee, and bitter dark chocolate. There is a nice amount of dark fruit (cherries, raisins, plums) in the finish. ABV is not noticeable at all.
M - Heavy bodied with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a sticky finish.
O - This is a delicious Russian Imperial Stout. Highly recommended.
