Russian Imperial Stout |  9.50% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
War & Peace is a Russian Imperial Stout aged with Peace Coffee's Guatemalan Organic Dark Roast. We measure out a pound of whole beans per barrel of beer and add it directly to our tanks, then allow it to infuse for nearly a week. It's a combination so natural, you may forget that stout and coffee once existed without each other.

After having my fair share of Worthy Adversary, I'm very excited to try this one on for size.

It really does pour like a glass of dark roast - deep dark burnt coffee hues with a slight edge of mahogany clarity. (Mahogany is surprisingly hard to spell.) The half finger of khaki color head dissipates pretty quickly, resulting in a thin but stubborn collar that produces a decent amount of lacing, beading and legs.

Rich oily coffee bean wafts from the glass. Simple vanilla and milk chocolate, some dark bitter chocolate at the same time. It smells like a coffee grinder at work... great creme brulee type aromas with brownie and espresso.

The label reads "...you may forget that stout and coffee once existed without each other." That's an awfully accurate description. The big dark chocolate flavors of the base beer are tied seamlessly to a bitter coffee character that provides an honest representation of the quality coffee that this was brewed with.

This is fantastic. Pardon my French, but a part of me wishes that my homies at Fulton would cut the crap and start brewing stouts exclusively.

Big thanks to JebSinger for this one. Relatively fresh bottle, so I am excited to crack it open.
So, this pours a legit pitch black. A tan head dissapates pretty quickly. Leaving no lacing, which I found surprising. First sniff is a big boozy one. With hints of roastiness.
Mouth feel is chewy, but not overly so. Like it has the feel you expect from a RIS, BUT, it leaves a clean feel, unlike similar beers.
Taste is pretty impressive. Right up front, a nice roasted coffee flavor. Strong, but not over baring, but slightly bitter. A sweetness then rolls to the side of your tongue. A little bit of smokiness then comes in the aftertaste. Overall, it mixes really well together. Nothing over powers anything else. Not overly z sweet like some RIS, nor pointlessly bitter from the roast or over hopping.
Great beer grab it for a nice, 8 degree night
