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.

a: pitch black - almost ten fidy black. 3 finger dark tan head with a bunch of little bubbles

s: huge smell, caught it as soon as i opened the bottle. big roasted malt and chocolate aromas here. sweet caramel, figs, and a hint of wood and leather. finishes with a nice smooth, creamy vanilla note. the aroma isn't overly complex, but its so smooth, creamy, rich and inviting. no hint of alcohol in the nose

t: whoa momma. right away you know this is huge. first there is a real nice balance of dark sweet chocolate and smoothly bitter roasted malts. this is followed by a real nice sweetness that comes from the malts, and also a nice dark fruity component. there is a slight earthy bitterness towards the end - but this beer is all about the chocolates and roasted malts. no real taste of the 12+%, but you can definitely feel the alcohol burn in the throat

m: full, for sure. carbonation is there, but minimal

o: this is a giant beer, and definitely a sipper. not the most complex RIS, but its flavors are harmonized well and it drinks smooth. very tasty, and dangerous for its ABV. make sure you sip.
