This pours black as night with some foam atop it. There’s big aromas of roast coffee, some smoke and fruit—not citrus or tropical fruits, rather dark fruits, stone fruits. I get roasty coffee and thick toffee flavors, some espresso and dark cherries, bitter chocolates, and a boozy finish. Flavors are sharp and focused, with a crisp, hoppy bitterness for any sort of imperial stout. A big boy and bad to the bone. I like it.
A farmhouse imperial stout? I’m not sure my palate is astute enough to detect the differences between this and their (um, regular?) imperial stout. More investigation is needed, as they say in research journals!

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.
