Maybe I love Russian Imperial Stout's too much, but this is just fantastic. Balanced flavor, all the stout regulars, but no one sticking out. Just a marvelous beer.

Deep black in color. Poured with huge, dense, dark beige foam with excellent retention. Dark roasted malts, dark chocolate and dark fig and prune aromas with a definitive booziness. Light medicinal phenolics toward the end. Medium-full bodied with medium light carbonation and a lightly boozy heatness. Roasted malts and chocolate flavors with phenolic notes and astringency that push the drinkability limits. Lots of better RISs out there.

Appearance: Deep black, 2” foam cap, thick lace. Smell: the hops hit first on the nose, then malt and then some cocoa and roast. Taste: rich, fruity, espresso, fruity, some faint tobacco, alcohol on the finish Some dark chocolate notes and the bitterness is more dark bitter chocolate than roast. Mouthfeel: very creamy, chewy, medium low carbonation

Purchased at Champagne's in MI for around the $10.00 mark for a 650ml bottle. Served at 5deg C in a tulip.

A- Opens well and pours a tiny brown head that is gone in a minute. Very dark black color

S- Coco and heat.

T- Coco flavored malty beer. Alcohol is well hidden. Burnt nut flavor as typical in a RIS. Pretty good blend but the coco leaves an aftertaste that hangs around in a bitter way.

M- Chalky but has some creaminess to it.

O- Pretty good overall beer. Not great but good

Food Pairing

This pretty good heavy beer went well with...... BBQ steak.

Enjoy

750ml bottle (a bit of age on it...bottled 1/2012) poured into a snifter.

A - Pours a deep black in the glass with brownish highlights when held to the light. A fizzy cap of off-white foam falls in a soda-like fashion quite quickly and leaves not even a trace of a collar or lacing on the glass.

S - Dark malts, licorice, caramel and some booze up front. Followed by milk chocolate, mild dark fruits.

T - Roasty, fairly heavy charcoal, light coffee, bitter chocolate and cocoa powder, coffee, mildly boozy.

M - Medium bodied, feels a bit thin for the style, low carbonation. Slick and oily on the tongue. Still a good amount of hops left after 3 years in the bottle. Overall dry, roasty and bitter imperial stout.

O - Overall, a good imperial stout. Decent complexity, pretty smooth drinker. Definitely roasty and a fair amount of charcoal put this on the burnt/roasty side of the style profile.
