This is difficult - if I wasn't at EBF is probably give this a 5, but it falls a bit short of other big stouts.

Brief write-up. A standard issue imperial stout, it makes up for that by showing off the notes I like (roast, chocolate, coffee) in a controlled fashion. I enjoy the gently hoppy finish as well. A complaint: it's too thin. The slender body clashes with the slickness left on the palate, but it remains pretty drinkable. Just a nice under-the-radar imperial stout, plain and simple.

3.7/5: It certainly isn't stupid!

Delicious in all of the ways it was supposed to be. I've had better, but not many.

Pours an oily dark black with a khaki colored head. Smell is roasted malt and a hint of vanilla. The flavor has big time roasted malt, burnt toast and coffee. A rich and delicious stout that hides the alcohol well. Full bodied and damn smooth, soft but ample carbonation. A treat of a brew here.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 10/28/2014. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toffee, toast, dark bread, licorice, raisin, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness. Outstanding aromas with awesome complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toffee, toast, dark bread, licorice, raisin, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness. Good amount of roast/charred bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toffee, toast, dark bread, licorice, raisin, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Russian imperial stout. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the abv. A highly enjoyable offering.
