From BeerAdvocate Magazine #87 (Apr 2014):

Chocolate, Roasty, Smooth, Rich

Not all Imperial Stouts need to be hyped to the point of reaching the black market and ensuing riots but they can be perhaps just as great. Mariana Trench holds our taste buds firm and slaps them around with roasted lushness. And someone not too long ago told us Florida did not have much of a beer scene ... Pfft!

STYLE: Russian Imperial Stout | ABV: 10.0% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round

Not worth the hype. Bit syrupy. I was definitely expecting more from Due South

Thanks to rudzud for sharing

Big creamy fluffy 1 finger mocha head, fades slowly with nice lacing, super dark pitch black color, nice legs.

Nose super chocolate, creamy mocha java, milk and fudgey cocoa, some roasted coffee, candied caramel, toffee, milk duds.

Taste big cocoa again, dark choc and cocoa fudge, creamy milk choc and milk dud candy, little caramel candies and toffee, chewy nougat like, with spicy earthy hops and fake fair bitterness, some mild vanilla in the background, even a touch of candied raisin. Finish dry very bitter spicy hop, dark cocoa roast, little coffee and vanilla.

Mouth is thicker fudgey bod, nice carb, very little booze.

Overall pretty nice for imperial stout. Very little booze, nice hop level, nice cocoa and vanilla etc, enjoyable.
