4.58/5 rDev +4.6%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a pint glass
a: Extremely dark, espresso. With a thin, light brown head. Despite the darkness of the beer, pours thin.
s: Malt, with pungent chocolate, toffee, coffee, caramel
t: Chocolate, coffee, molasses, with a mix of creaminess and bitters in the aftertaste.
m: Roasted malts feel, light-medium bitters and some creaminess too. Light carbonation.
o: Overall, an excellent russian imperial stout. The taste itself doesn't betray the 10.5% ABV that its name does. The flavor doesn't seem as complex as a North Coast Old Rasputin, which I had recently, or as distinctive. Still an excellent winter beer.
Serving type: nitro-bottle

4.64/5 rDev +5.9%

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.
