Solid overall at 4.25. Much better as it warmed up. Alabama now has a real championship brewery.

Color is a pitch black with basically no head at all.
Aroma is cherries with hints of vanilla and tons of alcohol.
Very big smells of bourbon with hints of burnt toffee and caramel.
The flavor is much nicer than the smell. Super huge body, the beer is what it says it is.
Vanilla cherries with chocolate and coffee hints. My only problem with this beer is the alcohol is not hidden at all. Very boozy beer but complex in flavor.

Honestly, not the guy whose going to drop x, y, and z. However, great flavor and taste. Second time trying a Russo Imperial that's been bourbon aged. The tits my friends. Crazy thing is it gets better the warmer it gets. Super smooth. Reminds me of a classier version of my college choice drink the classic Jack and coke. Minus the corn syrup of course.

For your friends who like real beer, it's definitely going to be something to talk about. Definitely hits hard too. 12 percent will do that I suppose. Have fun visiting Sputnik.
