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.

Pours viscous and bkack as night with a two finger brown sugar color head. Aroma is chocolate and maybe faint coconut. Taste is rich! Chocolate, roast, and then more chocolate! Mouthfeel is creamy and heavy. Overall a delicious, delicious stout that matches the best I've had. A wonderful treat.

This was a great beer, don't get me wrong. It was just to chocolate-y for my taste.

Appearance: Deep black in color, utterly opaque before a light, with a small tan head, which soon collapses to a dusting of foam. Thin, fine-beaded lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Strong and sweet vinous alcohol dominates the aroma, along with charred malt, coffee, bitter cocoa, and wood.

Taste: Opens with a wave of roasted dark malt and cold coffee. Bitter cocoa soon follows. Sweet alcohol is omnipresent. Later in the taste, oak notes appear. The hops are quite restrained, with just a hint of herbal flavors. Finishes with lingering coffee, bitter cocoa, and sweet alcohol.

Mouth feel: Smooth, very full and soft, with just a hint of carbonation.

Drinkabilty/notes: Absolutely awesome, surely one of the finest Russian Imperial Stouts, or one of the finest beers, irrespective of style, that I have ever had.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
