Thanks to mikey711 for dropping this in as an extra in a late fall trade. Always up for an unexplored RIS!

Nice artwork, like the guy with the club. Pours black. Smells very good, an arousing mixture of dark malts, heavy chocolate, & light hops in sweet harmony. Honestly, I haven't smelled that since I held a...no, I can't say it.

Damn! Monster Mash rips up front with some seriously toasted malts that overwhelm the subtle niceties of the nose, as if someone scraped an airplane-sized piece of burnt toast into the mash. Luckily, I like my toast scorched. Underneath the blackened assault are low notes of chocolate & a faint tinge of hops as the beer begins to warm.

Very thick brew, which coats the mouth & leaves the charred malt aftertaste in every crevice. For an RIS, this is in the heavy category...some I delight in having a couple of glasses of, this is too much for more than a single twelve ounce serving.

Very good beer that peaked with the smell, but is kind of all over the board. I'd be curious to see if it smoothed out with age & some of the rough edges might melt away. Promising beer that's already fun to drink.

Presentation - Poured into Southampton Pint Glass

Appearance - Pitch black, off-white head, moderate lacing

Smell - A good mixture of maltiness and hoppiness, chocolate prevalent

Taste - Chocolate, toffee, caramel, and "caw-fee" with some milkiness

Mouthfeel - Dry in front, sweet in back

Drinkability - Tastes like a stout of half the ABV of this beer, perfect as a desert beer

Overall - One of the best strong stouts I've ever had. Another win for the Garden State

Toasted malt and flowery hops create a pleasing aroma.
Pours a large tawny mostly lasting creamy head that reduces in time to coat the charcoal brown hued beer.
Initial roasted grain presence fuses with hops to create an unique profile of subtle sweetness balanced by a bitterness that takes center stage in this imperial stout.
All flavors converge and slowly disappear to an appealing dry finish.
Rich and complex, intense dark ale shows alcohol presence but not sharp and having every dimension of a big beer one would expect.
Well done.

another fine brew that Viggo shared. thanks eric!

12oz bottle. sampled nov 7/09.

pours black and pretty opaque with a thin ring of fine tan bubbles. bit of spotty lace.

aroma is great. rich dark chocolate. espresso and coffee. bit of milk chocolate. light alcohol. caramel. toasted multi-grain bread and biscuit. bit of cracker. earthy. bit of light citrus. anise. perhaps a touch of molasses.

taste is ok. slightly ashy roast and a hint of chocolate, but then it just seems to fall apart... the rich chocolate and coffee and nice caramel and malt complexity has almost disappeared. warming alcohol, slightly hot. touch of sweetness, but not in a nice caramel+toffee way. day old cold coffee. lackluster bready character. bit of lagery character - almost bock-like. wow, what a disappointment after the aroma.

mouthfeel is nice. medium-large body. just over medium carbonation with a touch of sting.

drinkability is ok. not very well balanced, and the flavour really leaves much to be desired. a shame that a beer that smelled so good didn't live up to it.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

12 oz bottle, ghetto label. Big thanks to spacecoyote for the hookup.

Pours an opaque dark brown, almost black, no light gets through, medium sized light tan head forms, quickly settles to a thin ring around the glass, some lace chunks stick.

Smell is neat, sweet and malty, caramel, brown sugar, floral hops, light bit of citrus, almost a bit of oxidized/soy sauce, chocolate milk, light roast, a lot of sweetness, but pretty interesting.

Taste is similar, very malty, caramel, brown sugar, raisin, lightly ashy, some floral, light chocolate, not a whole lot going on, alcohol jumps out a bit and the taste is just flat. Some plastic/bandaid going on too.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation, weird and drying in the finish. Smells good but huge flaws in the flavour. Thanks Carl!

A- pours pitch black with absolutely no head or carbonation to be found. I poured very vigorously too, but it didn't matter.
S- Smells very sweet. Lots of roasted malts and chocolate aroma.
T- Whoa, taste was somewhat expected, but still shocked me. Tons of roasted malt flavor, chocolate, and coffee. Alcohol is not present whatsoever. Really really malty. That roasted malt taste stacks up on the palate, but its still delicious.
M- Mouthfeel is super syrupy amd thick. No carbonation to speak of.
D- The alcohol is extremely well hidden, however, the lack of carbonation would make it challenging to drink a few of these.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Black, with no head whatsoever. The nose was molasses, caramel apple, but surprisingly little spiciness. The taste was super-thick syrupy sugar, with a slight bitter hoppiness in the finish and aftertaste. Even given the style, I still think that this imp. stout was too sugary, and would benefit from a little more hop balance. Way too thick to session; I struggled to finish my glass.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into Smokestack glass.

Pours absolutely no head. Hence no retention or lace. Color is a stunning coal black.

Aroma: Chocolate, a small amount of booze, rich, not burnt or toasty, earthy hops. The smell is very smooth and inviting, but not very powerful.

Taste: Chocolate, now with some roasted malts, a lot of heat, earthy hops. It is very syrupy. I can't really tell if I like this or not, I am kind of on the border.

Mouthfeel: Rich, smooth, and silky. Full bodied with some carbonation, but not a lot. Ends with a big malty aftertaste, fairly clean.

Overall, I wasn't overly impressed with this RIS, but it was decent. It just seemed to be very syrupy and sweet. I won't say I won't have it again, but it isn't something I would go crazy for.

09/01/09- Purchased at Buy-Rite Liquors in Plainfield, NJ.

Presentation- 12oz bottle, did not look for freshness info. Poured into a random pint glass.

Appearance- Deep cola colored pour..not quite black though. Smaller, quickly evaporating head..maybe 1/4 inch max. Some minor lace sheeting.

Smell- Heavy on the roasted malts and also a nice bittersweet chocolate nose. Nice aroma.

Taste- Hops come in strong in this brew. In fact they overpower the malt, which is pretty bold as well. Not quite balanced, but a nice chocolate malt backing. Really not much in the coffee area.

Mouthfeel- A bit of a higher carbonation level, but not too much complaints here. Lots of hops in the aftertaste.

Drinkability- Perfectly fine RIS. Hop head would especially enjoy this one. Tasty and would have again if had the chance.

Very dark black. Not too much carbonation on this one. Lacing is decent.

Lots of chocolate and roastiness. A touch of hops present as well.

It is very chocolately and the roastiness provides a touch of bitterness.

There is a good amount of creaminess and no chalkiest at all. Very mellow and no alcohol heat to speak of.

One of the easiest drinking 10% stouts I have ever had.

This "wants" hit comes courtesy of Kegatron, thanks again Heath! Monster Mash is the blackest of blacks. The carbonation is soft and takes a strong pour to produce a small, crackling one finger head. The head fizzles down. To practically nothing but a tiny collar and faint swirls of foam in seconds that does actually leave chunky drink lines down the glass.

The nose shows off fistfuls of dark, overripe fruitiness. There's a crazy candy like note in the nose that is reminiscent of candied orange peels, it oddly fits. A strong, deep roastiness brings up the rear with heavily caramelized sugars. A touch of pine and touch float around in the background. This is a pretty intense stout with a unique nose I keep coming back to.

Handfuls of heavily roasted barley kick things off and even lend some smokiness to the overall flavor. Dark chocolate with a huge cocoa content comes along mid-palate with some of that caramel sweetness. Light pine and the faintest touch of candied citrus bring up the rear but can't compete with the huge roastiness.

The carbonation is on the lighter side and the body is on the heavier which leads to a supremely silky mouthfeel. Each drink is a bit oily and leaves some residue behind on the tongue.

Monster Mash is an easy sipper. The alcohol would get in the way if I was to drink too much but a bottle in a sitting suits me just fine.

I've had my eye on this brew for awhile now. I'm glad I got the chance to try it and would love another bottles to toss in the basement and see how the alcohol does over time. Thanks for the sample, Heath!

From the modest information that I gather, I really like what I read, even moreso I like what I taste.

The pour of this Russian Imperial Stout delivers the viscous, motor oil, malty look that I expect from great beers of the style. Certainly opaque, and as dark as they come. Because of the gravity and alcohol, the beer has a hard time with the head formation and retention but does nold only a trace of foam and lacing in the end.

Moderately strong aromas of roasted grains, toffee, and coffee permiate from the chalice. Heavy cocoa, espresso, and a toasty maltiness give an inviting first impression to the nose.

Flavors are much more bold than the taste. Very heavy on roasted grains and toasted qualities make me wonder whether the beer was actually brewed with espresso beans. The roasty qualities dwarf the caramel/toffee sweetness that are exhibited in the nose. Though some sweetness is present, they are dominated by toasty, toasty notes. Not much in the way of sweetness but the hops give up a lot of pine a grassy flavor from mid-palate on. A bit of licorice, anise, and raison does rise in the aftertaste along side of a bourbon-like booziness.

The body is creamy, rich and full. Think of a milkshake with the intensity of espresso. Still, a thinning happens with the alcohol and a dryness happens with the full hop bitterness. As soon as the bready, toasty, dry malt impression lifts, the sweetness left on the tongue makes we want to take another immediate sip. Effortless in the body.

Ultimately the beer has all the right stuff to meet the qualities of other good examples of the style but it needs something else to take it to the 4.5's of this site. Maybe more ester complexity, maybe more body will do the trick?!

Thanks Mikey711!

Picked up a 6 of this at Shop Rite in Oakland...price tag was a bit much--I was really just hoping the Lemongrass Wheat would be bottled but I remembered enjoying this one as well so figured I'd give it a shot.

Not at all disappointed. w/r/t drinkability (yeah we're skipping ahead briefly): the day I picked up the pack I couldn't stop myself from drinking 3 one after the other (in spite of the 10% abv)...shared two with friends today- just couldn't resist. Now here I am, last beer poured out ready to review.

My only real qualm with this brew is the how heavy the alcohol is on the nose. As you near the bottom of the glass it gets intoxicating, honestly.

Pours a deep black with a small tan head that disappears far quicker than it took to form. Lacing is still quite nice. There's some toasted malt and coffee on the nose but the dominant smells are of molasses and dark fruits. The hops that were advertised don't come through.

It's the taste of this beer that'll be sending me back to Long Hill real soon--some bitter chocolate comes through right after a bit of a hop kick that this one opens up with. There's a bit of alcohol that lingers on the back of the palate but all together the big malt profile (monster mash) works beautifully here.

Feels a little bit less creamy than I like my russians but I won't hold that against this one. Cheers--

A-Deep, dark clear brown with ruby highlights. A thick, light tan head reduces just a touch and leaves spotty lace.

S-Baker's chocolate, dark roasted malt and espresso. Nothing overwhelming but solid. More aroma release upon warming.

T-Rich, bitter chocolate with hints of espresso. A finer finish of creamy milk chocolate. A nice combination of bitter and sweet.

M-Medium body and quite smooth but feels just a tad light. Good lingering bitterness.

D-Nice flavours and well hidden alcohol. A solid beer but could use a touch more body to clinch it all together.

A: poured from a 12oz bottle into a snifter. Opaque but not completely black; in strong light, looks more like a dark cola. Tiny bit of foam.

S: plum, molasses, toasty malts. Per the label, it's supposed to be heavy on the hops and coffee, but I'm not getting much of either. Still, the dark fruits make for an unexpected but interesting combo.

T: fairly balanced blend of the above. I finally pick up the bitter flavors in the aftertaste, but even that doesn't last long.

M: pleasant warming sensation. But like many high-gravity specialty brews, it's missing the smooth creamy coating that drew me to the stout style in the first place.

D: quite drinkable for a 10% beer. The alcohol is well hidden from the palate (if not the brain!) Well done on this front. Good overall representative of the RIS. And hey, it's brewed nearby and sold for cheap.

My first RIS, served in a pint glass. This beer is incredibly dark I had to hold it right up to a light to see a bit of reddish brown at its edges. I poured this one pretty vigorously, but the thin dark brown head that resulted quickly vanished.

Aroma is dark fruits and molasses, with some coffee and alcohol. Taste is very interesting, starting dark and sweet. Then the coffee comes through along with some hop bitterness. It finishes somewhat dry with a bit of alcohol asserting itself.

Mouthfeel is somewhat thick and coupled with the bold flavors and alcohol, i wouldn't want more than one of these big beers in a sitting. This is definitely a style i'll be going back to.

3.4/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle with dirt simple plain white label with black lettering. From the label, this has to be 6+ months old. I know that because that's when I bought it and the new labels actually have a monster on it. Off to the left side of the label is where you'll find the brewery's address and the Government warning. A brief description of the beer can be found in a rectangle on the front of the label.

When poured into a Unibroue Tulip, this "Monster" of a beer threw off my colored vision a bit. It looked like it poured a jet black color, but when it was held into the light I could see minor defects in the color. When I did that, that lead me to believe that this beer is not jet black, but a dark cola brown. On top of this beer was a mini 1/4 of an inch tan head of foam. This head of foam didn't stick around for very long. It quickly receded into a string of tan rings and about 3 spots of lace.

I don't think the aging of this beer had anything to the aroma, but I hardly got anything in the aroma. The main focus of this R.I.S. aroma was not the chocolate or the malt, but the plum. Hiding behind the plum wall was some dark chocolate,a splash of roasted malts, a hint of caramel, and a subtle whiff of spices.

The taste was a little better than the aroma and had a few other things that the aroma didn't, like hops and alcohol. This R.I.S. taste was dry roasted with roasted malts, roasted nuts, a pinch of dark chocolate, a drop of molasses, a few dark fruits, roasted hops, and then the taste finishes up a bite of alcohol. Not too much alcohol. It was just enough for this beer.

This was a medium to full bodied R.I.S. with a medium dry roasted aftertaste of roasted malts, dark chocolate, a splash of caramel, and a pinch of dry roasted hops. This aftertaste didn't bother to linger on. It lasted for a few seconds and then it was gone for good.

Not what I would call a "graveyard smash" of a R.I.S., but it was still pretty good. Would I ever drink this beer again? I probably would because it's not expensive and it has a 10% ABV. More bang for your buck.

Very minimal head with a dark brown liquid that is more transparent than usual for the style.
Raisons dominate with molasess and a slight dark rum character.
Dark fruit with a little bit of hop presence. A roasted character rounds out the beer.
A full body probably the beers strongest asset. Carbonation could be a little higher.

Monster Mash has a great deep brown color with overtones of amber. Very attractive when put to the light with hints of ruby in the body. The head is however unfortunately thin and short lived, although it maintains a steady blanket through drinking. The lacing is a bit thin in areas, but thick in others - very bizarre. Aroma is dominated by raisin and molasses with a hint of coffee. The alcohol is there but not overwhelming. The taste is underwhelming, with nice coffee bitter and dark fruit sweetness somewhat muddled by a metallic/medicinal taste. Regardless, the mouthfeel is fantastic: very thick body, excellent carbonation. The drinkability is reduced by the bitter and the metallic, but this is still a great beer.

Thanks to ATPete for a random beer bombing.
Pours a dense black with just a bit of wispy head that levels out to nothing in a hurry.
Smells very dark, raisins, smoke, a little soy sauce, cherries.
Taste is a bit milder, very mild sweetness to begin, somewhat dry with a good amount of hops. Sticky and slightly bitter finish.
Feels a little thin and watery and might need a little aging. The alcohol comes through just a bit, slightly peppery.

Pours a deep black color. A hard pour yielded almost no head at all. No lacing either.

I smell malts and a light aroma of chocolate.
Black licorice is also in the nose. Smells a little of burnt wood. Almost like a fireplace.

Slightly burnt spicy flavor. A little sweet at first and finishes up with a strong bitterness. A burnt wood flavor dominates the palate.

Mouth feel is ok. Slightly carbonated. Average thickness no chewiness.

I could see myself drinking no more than 2 of these at one sitting at the most.

It's a decent Imperial Stout. Nothing too extraordinary.

Poured this into a pint glass. This is black as night. I held it up to the light and none could break through this beer. Minimal head, it was off white and dissapated rather quickly.

Aromas of sweet malty notes, with hints of caramel, maybe chocolate, certainly a citrousy hop note or two.

The taste is full bodied, very smooth, almost creamy. There is a great hop flavor in the backgroud with is very pleasant, not bitter at all. That brings a great addition to this stout already very good stout. Finish is clean and leaving you wanting more.

I could probably only have one of these as this is somewhat filling but very tasty.

Cheers to Brian for this one.

This ale pours with a dark brown color. It appears black in the glass, with a thin, quickly diminishing tan foam. Nose is heavy roast, dark bakers chocolate, cream, oatmeal and vanilla. Flavor is a touch muted, roasty, dry and bitter. Notes of dark chocolate and roast. Silky. Has some depth to it. Better than expected.

Served on nitro-tap at Brass Rail Deli in Campbelltown, PA on 2/25/09.

A - Deeo walnut brown body with mahogany highlights around the bottom and one-finger creamy mocha-colored head that receded into a patchy film and modest lacing.

S - Roasted malt, chocolate and a hefty waft of alcohol comprise the initial aroma, followed by a bit of dark fruit in the back. Hints of iced coffee and black licorice also make appearances.

T - Lots of chocolate flavor initially with hints of roasted malt, coffee and licorice, but really big on the chocolate. Not as much alcohol heat as the nose would seem to imply. Touch of earthy, herbal bitterness in the finish.

M - Thick and robust with a smooth, silky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes with a mild bitterness on the palate.

D - Dangerously drinkable for such a high ABV Imperial Stout. Monster Mash boasts a pleasant chocolate flavor and a nice creamy nitro mouthfeel.
