So the cool label caught my eye. After reading the description I figured it sounded as if it wasn't all for show an this beer could actually be good.
Pours out nice and dark. Very much your typical Russian stout characteristic. An aggressive head mocha colored head formed with on initial pour. The head subsided fairly quick leaving just that little layer of cream patch to cover the surface. Visually this thing is dark like I said earlier. No light is penetrating this thing which is always a good sign. The beer does not have any noteworthy aromatic properties. I can smell a subtle alcohol note that is dominated by heavy malt. The flavor is very good. There is a nice smoke and a caramel like flavor. The beer comes in smooth without much hitting the senses. It is when you swallow that this beer comes alive leaving you with a nice lingering bitter. Mouthfeel is heavy with very little carbonation.
Overall this is a nice beer. I had my doubts with the over the top label. I'm glad it worked out that its an enjoyable beer that stays true to the Russian Imperial Stout.

On tap at the Whip In in Austin.
The beer pours a very dark brown to black color with a small tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malt, with a little bit of leather and a few assorted spices mixed in.
The flavor is similar. The chocolate and roasted malt notes are very strong and dominate the initial flavor. As the beer warms up a bit, I start to get a little bit of Belgian yeast and a little bit of brett mixed in to the flavor. There is also a little bit of anise and pepper mixed in.
Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Thanks for opening this with me, Nathan!
Black throughout with a moderately sized dark brown head that eventually leaves the glass oily and spotted with lace.
Lots of roast and chocolate elements in the aroma, along with a hint of smoke. I don't pick up any particularly "farmhouse-like" elements.
The flavor too is bold and flavorful: roast, dark and bittersweet chocolate, and a bit of smoke.
Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly chewy.
I like this quite a bit.

A: Pours Blacker then the blackest black times infinity. A dryed blood color finger of head.
S: smells of BLACK Coffee and Rotting Farmhouse yeast! and some boozyness...
T: hell fire roasted Cocoa, slight festering malts and yeast and vanilla bean tears ov dying angels
M: thick as blood with a generous amount ov carbonation
This brew was defiantly spawned from the darkest pits ov hell to pay homage to Black Metal and SATAN! \m/
