Really glad I got to try this. I've had many opportunity to pick up Hoppin' Frog's offerings, but I always seem to pass. This is a beer I've had my eye on for a while.

Poured from a 22oz bomber. This beer is a solid oily black, with no translucency through the sides. Thin layer of soft white head rests on top and manages to retain for the majority of the glass.

This beer reminds me a lot of the Great Lakes BA blackout in some of the taste elements and mouthfeel. There is a nice kentucky mash that is well matched by burnt chocolate malts. Really nice silky body that lays well on the palate. Traces of darker fruits rise out of the glass. This is on the lighter side for a Russian IS, not a big bold kick you in the ass beer, but very well done and easy to put back.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Midnight black in color with just a trace of mahogany brown head covering the majority of the top of the brew. Light Brussels lacing. Deep aroma of roasted barley,oatmeal,and bourbon are very enticing. The flavor is a combo of bitter roasted barley, sweet bourbon and oatmeal. The mouth is thick,creamy, luscious and sticky.
