I am not pouring this in a glass. Rather, I am drinking it out of the can since it is one of the few beers I will drink in a can.
A - From what I can see, extremely dark black with a small brown head retention. Obviously pouring this in a glass would make a difference.
S - Lots of Caramel and toffee. Subtle chocolate.
T - Lots of smoke flavors. This could be quite hot on the palate depending on how experienced you are with Russian Imperial stouts (as in alcohol taste). Very Creamy and toasty. Obviously an abundance of malt. Sip and enjoy this winter time brew.
M - Thick with an oatmeal stout mouthfeel. I wouldn't be surprised if this were an imperial oatmeal stout. I hope Rasputin doesn't scoff at me.
D - Two pints is quite enough. Three or more is asking for a rather harsh morning, so you better have time to sleep in. This is a great beer regardless.
Overall, a great winter time Russian Imperial Stout. This is my go-to stout during the Winter when I am out and about. Dark Lord and Hunahpuhs are obviously Gods of the Stout Genre, but they are extremely limited, obviously. If it is November through February, chances are I am drinking Ten Fidy if I am drinking Stout.
