When you pour this beer, it's a deep, thick Black with a Tobacco coloured head with absolutely great Head retention for this style. It even leaves sticky lacing on the sides of the glass! I don't think I've had an Imperial stout, apart from this one that had such great retention and actually left lacing on the glass! On the nose there's lots of Roasty Malt notes, Coffee, Chocolate and a light bit of Alcohol in the background. How does this beer taste? Where do I start?! Smokey flavours, Raisins, Roasty Coffee and Chocolate notes, Light toffee and a touch of sarsaparilla and molasses on the finish. The beer is quite thick and viscous, lightly carbonated and finishes Medium dry.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tulip glass.
Aroma- HMMM, coffee, caramel and malt. fantastic.
Appearance- Looks like I just poured my old engine oil into a glass (that's actually a compliment)
Taste- The best Russian Imperial Stout I have ever had. I could also say the only RIS that I cared for. But this awesome tasting.
Palate- A heavy brew with moderate carbonation, has a creamy texture and a good alcohol feel after the swallow.
Overall- World class, I now know why people flip over this beer.

A: Black, thick dark head, no retention. S: Molasses, unsweetened chocolate, smoke, and grain.T: Smokey, coffee, raisins, roasty, molasses, burnt bitter finish, leafy hops, a touch of esters and cutting acid in the margin. Hints of rootbeer upon warming.M: FULL-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation, O: Amazing appearance, layered aromas and flavors, a great beer that’s not in my favorite style.
