3.56/5 rDev -4.6%
Pour an effervescent mahogany with 2+ fingers of mocha colored head. Stellar head retention & lacing
S: A little dark fruit & carob, vanilla & boozeyness once warm
T: Faint smokeyness & prunes, some carob up front. More prunes as this warms, some carob & black currant, a little bit of minty hops & chocolate, plus woodiness. Finishes dry, woody & with a bit of prune & chocolate
MF: Medium body, near flat carbonation, becomes stickier & a bit fuller once warm
Kind of a middleweight in a division of heavyweights, worth a try, but not very memorable. Got a little better once warm

This is the most refreshing Russian Imperial Stout I have had to date. The hops in this beer are really a great addition to the beer. The acid from the hops cuts the thickness of the dark beer. It is not an overly hoppy beer although it has a lot of IBUs. I don't get a really big nose on this beer but what is there is nice an stouty with some hop notes as well. Not a tremendous head by any means but what it lacks in appearance it makes up in taste and mouthfeel. Pretty damn delicious!

Looking at this brew... This is the best looking beer from this brewery. Pours perfectly with a two finger thick tan head that has awesome retention. The body is black with dark ruby red hues showing off in normal light.
The aroma is woody, coffee, metallic, cocoa, and vanilla.
The taste has chocolate, tea, and vanilla.
By far this is the best beer from this brewery.

A: Pours a black color with a tan head that fades to nice lacing.
S: Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate with some roasted malt and bit of caramel.
F: Flavor of bittersweet chocolate, coffee with some roasted malt. There is a bitterness throughout with a dry finish.
F: Fairly full body, quite smooth. No hint of the 10% alcohol. nice balance.
O: Very nice Imperial Stout from a local brewer. worth a try.

Purchased in St. Louis, MO. Poured from 22oz bomber into a snifter. No date on bottle. A - Dark black with an off white head which leaves extensive lacing. S - Dark chocolate and roasted malt. T - Coffee and dark chocolate flavors. Rich and decadent. M - Light to medium body with a generous carbonation. A good imperial stout. Very dark tasting. Liked the Hail Mary better though.

A - Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a two-finger, tan head of thick foam. It had nice retention and left sticky patches of lace.
S - It smelled of coffee, roasted malts and some dark chocolate.
T - Good bitter piney hop bite with a blend of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and burnt molasses.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a smooth finish. A nice alcohol heat.
O - Best beer from Cathedral Square yet. I really enjoyed this one.
