Poured a wonderfully deep black with very nice tan head and a bit of decent lacing throughout. Nice roasted grain aroma with a slight hint of burnt toffee and a nice earthy hop aroma. Good deep roasted/burnt malt flavors with a slight hint of coffee and a decent earthy hop finish; just nothing as deep and dark as I would've expected and without the extra deep flavors usually produced by imperial stouts. Went down nicely, though, for such a big beer. Not the best, but it's still worth a try.
Serving type: on-tap

Had it on tap at Sun King here in Indy.
5$ for a 12oz fill.
Price aside. It was an excellent brew.
It was Nitro Timmie that i had. Filled the glass with dark black color and a brown head about two fingers thick. Good persistent head. Excellent lacing. Opaque inside the glass.
Smell: A lot of alcohol is apparent. Regular roasted black malts, caramel and chocolate flavors. Some vanilla and a lot of malt flavors. A lot of burnt malts flavor. Slight hop presence as well.
Taste: Very much the nose. Alcohol is dizzying. Some dark dry fruits, may be. Vanilla, caramel, dark malts and chocolate. Bitterness is apparent due mainly to hops and burnt malts. A very good hop profile used as well.
Mouth feel :Very full bodied solid stout. Very thick. Low on carbonation. Very heavy drinking. Astringency is derived from alcohol, burnt malts and hops. Provides a lot of warmth, again mainly due to alcohol.
Overall. An excellent nitro adjusting, very solid russian imperial stout.

A seasonal offering, Timmie is one of my favorite Sun King beers and I always look forward to its return. It is near black, oily and thick looking like any good RIS. What hits me in the smell is a bit of smokiness and molasses. These show up again in the taste, while smoothly integrated with chocolate, coffee, and roasty bitterness in the finish. A great, warming winter beer flavor. Mouthfeel is nice and thick while not being too syrupy. Overall, this is an excellent RIS and offers a little something different.
