Bottle at Combined Tasting.

A: Pours black with a slightly tan head.

S: Roasty...

T: This is a Russian Imperial Stout! Strong malt with a touch of bitterness. A hint of coffee in the finish. This is a tasty RIS, but it is a little hot right now. I have another bottle I'm planning on aging for a year or so.

M: Medium body, smooth in the mouth.

Overall: It's a good RIS. Another nice job by Barrier Brewing Company.

The aroma hits of chocolate, lots of rich licorice, roasted malt.

The flavor follows with that smack of licorice up front, ashy roast, onto cacao and dark chocolate. A bit lacking in sweetness and richness.

The mouthfeel is medium minus and slightly light for the style.
