4.63/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

12oz can (canned on 10-15-12 @ 9:15 Peanuts Envy) poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pitch black and lets no light through at all when held up to the light. Dense and thick dark tan head at first, slowly died down to a thick ring at the edge and thin skin across the top. Sheets and strands of persistent lacing. A great looking Russian Imperial Stout.

Smell: Rich roasty smell with mild alcohol notes, bittersweet chocolate, some dark fruity esters (a hint of raisin).

Taste: Rich bittersweet chocolate, smooth roasted malt, a pleasant sweetness through it all. It's just a hair on the sweet side of things, but perfectly balanced with roasted malt bitterness and some black coffee-like bitterness at the end. Simple, but very very tasty and well done.

Mouthfeel: Very creamy, thick, and smooth. Just right carbonation on the tongue at the end.

Overall / Drinkability: What an amazingly rich stout! I can see why people rave about this one. A slow sipper on a cool fall night (and would be good this winter, good thing that I bought a 4 pack) and I think would be great with food. I had it with a banana butterscotch muffin at the end and it paired pretty well. Definitely a one at a time beer - the ABV is notable pretty quickly on after starting to drink this one. It warms you up. I can't say I want another one right away....and yet....I wouldn't mind if I didn't have to go to work in the morning. One does sate though. Overall I'm very impressed with this beer from start to finish and I will definitely have to hunt this one down again when its in the area.

Not really my thing. The taste is overwhelming and not all that enjoyable. I struggled to finish the can. With that said, my friend who finished it loved the beer. I would personally recommend against this, but given its high rating most people disagree with me. To each their own.
