22oz bottle revealed a nice dark-brown, almost dark-black stout with small khaki-tan head. Smell is mostly of coffee with a hint of chocolate coming through as well as roasted malts, and a marshmallow sweetness. Taste pretty much matches the aromas with the roasted coffee being upfront and most noticeable on the palate. Slight sign of carbonation and pretty solid medium bodied brew with a smooth/slick mouthfeel. I found this Imperial Stout to be better than expected. Well done Lagunitas!

A - Pours dark with a finger of Chocolate coloured head, decent retention with some real lacing.
S - Light milk chocolate off the top followed by fresh ground coffee beans.
T - The dark blended malts are the prominent flavour followed by a nice mellow espresso coffee finish. Dark, and nutty-malty, I absolutely love it! Alcohol goes almost unnoticed, which was very nice, and there's a bit of a clean sweet light smokey bitter flavour which lingers on the palette. A tasty dessert!
M - Nicely balanced carbonation, lighter than most other stouts A real sleeper.
D - This new brew is pretty much amazing. I absolutely loved it, and was quite impressed by this offering. Lagunitas is the new standard, and this one is the new standard to judge by! Highly recommended to any Russian imperial stout fan!!
