My 100th review! And it wasn't wasted... this is a terrific beer! I had been sitting on this one for about 7 months, and it was worth the wait. Pour absolutely pitch black; very little color even when held to light. Khaki head that diminished quickly. Great smell, and pretty spot on for what you would expect from an RIS: lots of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee but with more hops than most. Flavor has about the same profile, but more coffee comes through. Not overly sweet, and still pretty hoppy for a stout. Just a touch of alcohol, but you would never suspect it was pushing almost 13%. Mouth feel is great, full and smooth, not thick and sticky, mild carbonation brings some of the lighter flavors to life. Overall, excellent, and worth every penny.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Black, good head--actually very good for this strength.

Smell: Chocolate, powdered cocoa, booze.

Taste: Big sweet chocolate followed with mild bitterness. Sweetness is kept in check, so not cloying despite being dominated by chocolate. No booze detected.

Overall: I like big Russian Imperials since they are usually sweeter than the American style. This one lived up to my expectations, nice sweet chocolate flavor and not boozy despite its strength. I might have to try some of CS's other big stouts.
