Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass. Filled November 6th 2012.

Out of the bottle pours, quite dark walnut black and leaves a same opaque and quite dark body color also. Head doesn't make much, but there's some coffee brown like color, and it manages to keep a 3mm collar while drinking and not looking filmy.

Really nice bouquet on this beer. Slightly fruity, mixing of nice charring roast. A little bit of tobacco too, and all nicely balanced and complimenting each other, quite solid and impressive.

There's a good chewy texture to this, with a ripping grain. Slightly hot, with a very noticeable hop bitterness on the finish that makes the heat more tolerable. Matches well with some pine like heat and toasty roast character complimenting each other nicely. Diversity is not as common in comparison with the nose, not much tobacco, and virtually no fruit character. Nice bitter cocoa finish on the swallow also.

Quite a nice solid Russian Imperial either way.
