4.53/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Thick, 2.5 finger head, dark caramel color. Head diminishes to about one finger but sticks around for quite a white, moderate lacing. Pours a very dark brown.

S: Smells like dark caramel. Slight coffee/espresso scent in the back of the nose as well. Fair amount of malted barley coming through, although there actually seems to be a bit of hops coming through.

T: Flavor matches the smell quite well. Caramel malts are strong but not overpowering, and well balanced with slight hoppiness. There is a nice sweetness and mild espresso flavor on the finish. Delicious.

M: Great smoothness, moderate carbonation doesn't hurt flavor, but adds to the experience.

D: Very drinkable stout. One bottle per person might last a little while, but split between two people may not be enough unless this is a dessert beer.

Fantastic! Definitely recommend this for Imperial Stout-lovers

4.09/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Aroma: Toasted nuts, roasted coffee and chocolate, with a little sweet liqueur thrown in for good measure

Appearance: Pours like slick black oil with a minimal, decadent, half-inch tan head

Taste: Bitter and slightly salty, with a nice, long, lightly sour aftertaste

Palate: Light bodied with a thin oily texture, flat with an astringent, bitter finish

Overall: A good stout, but perhaps a little too bitter to be named excellent.

Served on tap in a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer is served a deep-deep brown nearly black color with a one finger head of brown foam. The head holds on strong, slowly fading to leave a fantastic level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is a big, roasty, and sweet with a nice roasted malt smell mixed with plenty of milk chocolate, brown sugar, and some caramel. Along with these aromas comes some smells of coffee, bourbon and an earthy hop giving a heavy and nicely roasty aroma overall.

Taste- A big sweet roasted malt and chocolate flavor greets the tongue. This is accompanied by flavors of vanilla and caramel mixed within. As the taste advances coffee starts working its way in, with it beginning lighter and really gaining strength toward the end of the taste. Along with the coffee comes some boozy flavors with some smoke mixed within, melding very well with an increase in the roasted flavors of the brew. More booziness and sweetness (with hints of vanilla) hits the tongue at the end of the taste and with the now somewhat stronger coffee flavor, the robust roast and the sweeter chocolate flavors of the brew ends up leaving a thick and warming taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is quite thick and creamy with a carbonation level that is slightly on the lower side. Both the thick-creamy body and the low carbonation are fantastic for the big, warming and boozy roasted flavors of the brew, making a great slow sipper.

Overall – A very tasty Russian imperial with a big sweet and boozed roasted flavor.

Serving type: on-tap
