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.

4.19/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a snifter

A: Motor oil black, very viscous and thick. A mocha-colored one finger head that lingered. Filmy lacing. Some of the best label art I've seen in a while.

S: Chocolate, malts, coffee and bourbon come on strong.

T: Follows nose with a caramel and a really nice bourbon finish. Sweet, robust. A definite sipper.

M: Medium to heavy with frothy carbonation.

O: Wish they could sell this one in Mississippi, but the 11.7% rules that out. One that I will seek out again. Highly recommended. Well done, Straight to Ale.
