Simply divine stout- what an imperial Russian should be, in my opinion. Ive had the pleasure of getting my hands on a 2010 1050 in the can and it was even smoother, silkier than a more recent vintage. Gets better with age. Delicious cold or room temp, flat or spirited. It is simply- honestly, the best beer I've ever had the pleasure of drinking. I worship this particular beer because it has earned all of my praise and these accolades. The pinnacle of the art form, at least in the world of stouts.

Poured from the 12oz. can into a snifter.
This amazing brew purs a deep, inky and oily black with about a one-finger head that fades into some lingering foam around the egde. Only a bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma is roasty malt -- the darkest of dark chocolate, roast coffee, rich black tea. There are also notes of dark dried fruit .
The taste is an assault on the tongue. Intense. Chocolate, a bit of sweet toffee and raising and then big, bitter dark chocolate. The lingering, drying bitter note on the tongue has hints of more chocolate and roast coffee and malty Assam tea.
The mouthfeel is creamy and sticky with a bit of carbonation as well.
Overall, just wow. This beer does not disappoint. One of the best stouts I've tasted.
