Russian Imperial Stout |  8.50% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
78 IBU

A huge, viscous, full-bodied, dark as night, imperial stout yet somehow amazingly drinkable. Big aromas and flavors including dark fruits, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and spiced rum. Not for the faint of heart. Big but surprisingly nimble, as it can compliment any course of a meal.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Had this @ the Music City Brewfest

A - Black and intimidating with a fluffy white head.

S - Smells like it looks (dark and roasty) with some hop aroma cutting through the big dark smells.

T - Lots of flavors. Dark and roasty malts, coffee, chocolate, fruit, brown sugar. Similar to smell, hop flavors manage to compliment the big flavors of the dark malt. Finishes dry and roasty.

M - Very substantial

D - Very drinkable because it tastes so good, but it's certainly no session beer.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Hop City, Birmingham.

A: A very dark brown, almost black, with a mocha colored one finger head that lay there staring up at me. Curtainy lacing.

S: Chocolate, anise, leather, malty. Heavy duty.

T: strong, hefty, robust. Semi sweet chocolate arrives with malts and light espresso notes. A thick, dry finish. What a great sipper.

M: medium with medium, frothy carbonation.

O: A stellar IRS. One of the best surprises from my sampling at the bar. For a stout, this is a real easy drinker. The wait staff think highly of this overweight gem. Recommended.
