3.55/5 rDev -4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 22oz into a goblet.
Appearance: a good, thick brown-black with a two-finger head and lots of stubborn lacing.
Smell: a metallic espresso
Taste: sweet mocha with a bitter finish and a bit of licorice as it warms. The alcohol is definitely present but integrates well into a Russian Imperial.
Mouthfeel: medium-full bodied, not quite so much as something such as, say - Old Rasputin. Definitely a little lighter with a tingling carbonation.
Overall: This is my go-to, easy-to-find (in Portland), great value beer when I'm in the mood for an imperial stout (which is fairly often). It's fairly well-balanced, slightly sweet but with the characteristic Lagunitas bitter finish. Not too complex, but definitely good and drinkable - again and again. I like this one a lot.
Serving type: bottle
