Another magnificent brew found on tap at The Draught House Pub in Austin, this stout shows a pitch black color with a modest tan ring on top and no signs of lace. The aroma brings intense malt with pleasant grass charcoal. Clearly a quality brew is evidenced. The flavor delivers deep raisin and heavy charcoal malt with lemony edges. Beautifully blended, yet intense in its sensory reward! It's pretty much full bodied with an easy, velvety feel. It offers a very subtle carbonation but it's more than adequate for this style. A great imperial stout!

Beautiful color, dark brown/black, awesome foamy head with a very dark mocha color. Not very aromatic, but clear hints of coffee. After tasting it, a strong coffee flavor is uncovered. Not heady at all, nor boozy. Hints of sour beer linger, maybe cherries or lambic.

This is a very complex beer. It is not heavy to drink, it's one of the less filling Russian Stouts I've had. Dry and bitter remains in your mouth.

I totally dug this beer. Pours totally black with tan, khaki head. The nose is dark malts, coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, dark fruits - figs and cherries - picked up on some of those farmhouse-y saison yeast notes. The taste follows the noise primarily with the dark roasted grains, cocoa and dark fruits - maybe a little vinous. Some sweetness that is almost like Belgian candi-sugars, a little more oak and slight funk from what I am assuming is the farmhouse yeast - though they are really quite minimal. Surprisingly smooth and full mouthfeel that has an incredibly dry finish. Again, I really enjoyed this beer. One my favorites from Jester King that I thought walked the line between the two styles quite well.
