Had this on 2011-12-02 in Valley Forge, PA

A - Deep, dark brown/black with a 1-finger, dark tan head that fades pretty quickly but leaves a ton of lace. Looks like motor oil while pouring.

S - Coffee, chocolate, rich malt, grape floral.

T - Sweet molasses, hop and roasted bitterness, coffee, some dark chocolate tastes. Lots of alcohol. Chalky.

M - Medium-heavy body. Light carbonation. Very creamy, thick and syrupy.

O - I enjoyed this quite a bit although it isn't at the top of my Russian Imperial Stout list.
