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.

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

Very dark brown color in the tumbler. Not so much foam but pleasantly sizzly in the mouth. Appealing warm, winey, roasted aroma.

Totally malty with a big mouthful of sweet dark roasted malt. More caramelly and less burnt than a lot of big stouts. A great RIS flavor, though it lacks a little in the cream-filled mouthfeel. Hints of licorice and coffee. Really richly roasted taste without any of the charcoal sourish note. It's like a bitter chocolate See's candy with a caramel center.

A pleasant dark strong brew with plenty of flavor, but not much competition in the category. From the 22 oz bottle bought at La Bodega Wines & Spirits in Riverside for nine bucks. Most totally excellent label-- one of my favorites ever.
