The beer pours like dark roast coffee with a light khaki head that doesn’t fade but isn’t impressive, as might be expected for this big of a beer. The beer is black but it has some lovely dark brown notes to it. The beer’s body is also too dark to see through. The beer’s lacing is light to non-existent with only a couple slippery dots. On the nose, the beer smells boozy and sweet with touches of char and chocolate. There is the faintest touch of raisin dark fruit in the nose as well. On the tongue, the beer tastes sweet and oddly salty with a big wash of char and burn. The beer begins big salty, like surprisingly salty. The salt builds as the semi-sweet chocolaty malt moves in with a touch of cloying booze and is then eaten up as the roast moves in with big charred flavors that linger in the mouth. The salt and booze fade away and the finish is charred with the booze burning on the back of the throat. The aftertaste rings with char, too. On the mouth, the beer feels heavy in body with a slight creamy feel from the carbonation with a slight syrupiness. The carbonation gives a little prickle but also cradles the tongue nicely. The mouth is left charred, and dry from the roast with a light stickiness on the tongue. Overall, this is a great big Russian Imperial Stout. The flavors are big and the alcohol, while present, is nicely presented. This beer is tasty and could only blossom in a barrel (side note: I’ve had Porcine Unidragon, which is a barrel aged version of this mixed with Vampire Slayer, but I want just this to be in the barrel). Try this beer!

3.76/5 rDev -7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Blackish dark brown/tan with a foamy, thick 12 inch head, lots of sticky lacing.
Smell - Roasted malts, raisin, plum, fig, molasses, chocolate, cocoa, not really abundant aromas.
Taste - First sip starts out very roasted, smokey malts. Thick charcoal flavor with traces of raisin and plum with a minor cherry sweet flavor. Nice amount of bitter hops with bitter coffee comes in after the first wave of smoked malts. A little yeasty sweet note mixed with molasses adds a sweet note to a rather overly bitter beer. Alcohol adds a little warmth in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Roasted malts nail tongue. Coffee and chocolate coat the palate along with some hops and sugars. Aftertaste is malty, bitter, coffee and chocolate with a little alcohol.
Overall - A good solid and ris. Really surprised by the roasted smoked flavor, and also the amount of hops and bitter coffee flavor. The coffee/expresso bitter flavor left on the tongue is a odd flavor, and a turnoff to me honestly. Still, I can drink this and enjoy it but its not my favorite ris.
