Very dark brown in the Troubadour branded narrow tulip. Quite a big head which settles down to a surprisingly spritzy and sudsy mouthfeel.Rich yet tangy.

There is a distinct tart edge to this. Big chocolate taste and a winey, malty substance but not a bit sticky. Hoppy tasting with a bitter flavor of dark roasted coffee. Minty notes and a fruity finish of overripe nectarines. Hint of prunes and charred malt. Totally sippable.

An interesting variation on the really big stout theme. I wouldn't call it Russian; I like Belgian imperial stout. On tap at The Public House in La Jolla, Calif.

Serving type: on-tap

Huge huge head. Nice lacing throughout. Very dark brown black. Nice slightly sweet creamy chocolate taste. Very smooth beer and lots of flavor. Just love the creaminess. I had no problem drinking this as it goes down very smoothly. Would definitely drink this one again.

I never mention bitterness in my reviews, my bitterness taste buds are ridiculously under-
sensitive.

APPEARANCE : Very dark brown almost turning black with a generous fluffy light brown head. Does last quite long, though.

SMELL : First nose shows some chocolate, roasted malts, vegetal molasses. Second nose introduces some dark dried fruits to the chocolate/molasses side. Third nose almost has a liquorice side along with further expansion of previous aromas.

TASTES : Much more vegetal than expected. Hops are very present - mostly resins. Dark dried fruits are very upfront as well, but the main element is definitely molasses.

MOUTHFEEL : A little bit thin to my liking for an imperial stout. Still very well done, well balanced. Carbonation is fine.

OVERALL : Although it's not the best imperial stout I've had, it's definitely one I'd willingly buy again, given the chance. Wouldn't go out of my way for one, though.
