A: Thick. Oil black. 4 finger thick milk chocolate brown head. No light showing through this bad boy.

S:Dankness and coffee. Some booze. Cocoa.

T:Dank, Pine and Chocolate. Coffee is present in the middle. This is the dankest stout I have ever had, it has hop notes similar to Pliny (of course mellower than an IPA) which kind of blows my mind. I am going to call this my Mary Jane stout thats how dank this tastes. Flavors are blended really well.

M: Thick, this is almost like an imperial milkshake. Sticky and smooth. Another characteristic of this beer that stands out against others.

O:Awesome, buy one (or 5) of these if they are availible in your area.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle with a plain green cap and no freshness date into a tulip glass.

A: Pitch black with a very thin brown head which quickly disappears leaving little marks of its existence.

S: Light forally hops with a bitter dark chocolate, espresso, light dark fruits, and some carmel on the nose, very similar to BORIS.

T: Very mellow, yet intense. Bold flavors here milky with bitter dark chocolate and espresso. Slight caramel at the end with some light dark fruit hints. This is complex and opens up as I drink more.

M: Creamy and smooth, much like drinking whole milk. There's a slight fizz as I sip with a dry finish.

O: Straight 4.5s, I know that's high, but I love this beer. This is a mean Russian imperial stout that has a bite to it.

A- basically opaque with real dark khaki head

S- so rich and complex, ranging from dark fruits, milk chocolate, roasty coffee, caramel, and molasses

T- even better than it smelled. classic dark fruits dipped in chocolate. evolving and layered, with complements of toffee, sweet bread, and burnt chocolate. slight bitterness on the finish keeps things nice and dry, perfect sweetness

M- very creamy and coating

O- real hard to beat this RIS, perfect balance between sweet, dry, and roasty. will definitely seek this one out again.

Pours black with the thinnest cap of brown head. Absolutely no light passes through this. Smells like dark chocolate syrup. On first sip the mouthfeel stunned me! Probably the thickest i have come across in my eight Years of legal drinking. Flavors include dark chocolate, nutty oats, and roasted malt so roasty that it adds bitterness! Mouthfeel as I said earlier is smoothly slick and coating. This is really drinkable due to a slight sweetness. I love it.

A sweet chocolate goddess with a laurel of hops. Pours like hot tar or molasses. Pitch black. No head. Floral aroma. A special beer. I was honestly scared to drink a tall glass of liquid that trapped all light that entered the glass. I've never tried anything looked like it. However the taste is complex, not overpowering, well balanced, and unexpected subtleties exist. A rich and excellent beer.

Poured into a 20 oz Duvel giant tulip, very aggressively. Pours a amazing black, no light penetration at all, with a 4 inch sticky dark mocha head, that settles into a film of bubbles, with some lacing. Smell dark chocolate and roasted strong coffee, wow! Taste just about blows you away with what your nose hinted too, you realize that this is a special stout. Mouthfeel is truly exceptional. Large, but not over the top. Great life for it's abv and not overly dry. Easy drinking, but you wonder if it is higher in abv even if alcohol taste isn't present. This is one of the best beers that has touched my lips, truly a gem.
