look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

picked up some bottles yesterday at the release. i waited as long as i could before popping one open (a day). had a pour at the release and was blown away by the beer. enjoyed from my 22oz talkbeer snifter.

a - pried the amazingly awesome and carefully applied gold wax off the bottle to get to the cap. the dipping on the bottle was done with care...you could really tell. it almost felt like a crime removing it, but i had to get to the liquid inside. it had been over 24 hours since i had this beer and i couldn't stop thinking about popping a bottle to see how the bottle stacked up to the tap. the beer poured thick and dark with a nice dark tan head that didn't hang out long (i poured softly though as to not overflow my glass with the full bottle pour). lacing was sparse, but where it grabbed the glass, chunks lay leaving reminders of how full my glass once was. real great shine and lush look. very attractive RIS.

s - malty roasted chocolate with some soft alcohol phenols.

t - the highlight of this beer...and probably the most important aspect..the flavor. big, bold, and rich. roasted. chocolate. nice uptick of sweetness on the finish. nothing is too much in any direction...great balance and classic russian imperial stout with a really wonderful roast.

m - full bodied. coats the mouth. the way a stout ought to be.

o - go ahead, call me a homer...local or not, this beer is legit. in today's beer world where so few breweries are making a special release stout without putting it in barrels or adding some odd ingredients it is refreshing to see a genuine world class to style russian imperial stout coming from a new-ish brewery. and the fact that they are local makes it all the better (i cannot wait to drink as much of this as i can while kegs pop up around town at bars and bevies). keep up the great work. this one gives SH IRS a run for its money.
