Bomber to tulip-pint
A - dark, viscous looking; quarter-inch deep mocha head; significant lacing and retention
S - dark, sweet chocolate; some maple and vanilla notes too; lots of coffee and roasted malts
T - oatmeal; baking chocolate; dark coffee; caramel and roasted malts; malty as shit actually; nice hoppy flavors too
M - slick and chewy; rich; heavy as oil; it's like chocolate syrup in oatmeal stout form
O - this is a damn fine beer with a lot of solid flavors without being unnecessarily complex; deep, heavy, dark, malty goodness; this beer is quite nectar-y and delicious; looking forward to trying BA BORIS and DORIS.

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.
