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.

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.
