Gigantic Brewing Co. 'Most Premium Russian Imperial Stout' @ 10.0% , served from a couple of 650 ml bottle's purchased for $8.15 each

A-pour is a dark cola brown from the bottle to near black in the glass with a hint of ruby red peeking thru a thin small tan head leaving a minimal lace ring

S-ripe cherries , booze

T-somewhat smoother than Hornbeer - Fundamental Blackhorn , still a lot of smokeyness

MF-ok/good carbonation , full bodied

Ov-ok/good beer , decent 'RIS' , no wow factor

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with nice black chocolate notes and some cocoa is pleasant. Taste is also dominated by semi-sweet black chocolate notes with some light dry roasted malt notes and some cocoa notes re also identifiable. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not as dry or bitter as some other example of the style and somewhat lacking in compelxity but still really enjoyable.

pours black with a chocolate-milk type head. looks pretty.
smell is roasty, with a little band aid aroma mixed in. toasted malts and chocolate. aroma overall is not strong, but mellow and pronounced with the maltiness and chocolate. very nice.
taste is some good toasted malts and chocolate. as someone else said, "bitter dark See's chocolate..." actually, the more I taste this the more I like it. I guess I didn't want to like the beer with the bug on the label and was expecting 'just another stout', bland and regular-tasting, but this is very nice. smooth. bitterness is on a comfortable, desired scale... I think the brew overall is well-produced. so many stouts I have tried similar to this and they were all bland or too bitter, but this one does it pretty good. impressive and well done in my limited book.
