A: black, opaque, finger of mocha head

S: Not a strong smell like I expected, a hint of vanilla and very slight hint of coffee, some dankness, some wood

T: smooth, a little boozy when unaged, complex, vanilla leads to chocolate, coffee, peppers at the end

M: Smooth with a slight bitterness and alcohol burn at the end

O: Very good. Unaged the first time I had it and would love to age this. Incredibly complex but boozy, need to get a few and age. A little mellowness and this beer will be amazing

Aroma: Coffee, slightly boozy, smells rich. Not much hop aroma showing through. 11/12

Appearance: Poured vigorously into a porter/stout glass from a 12oz bottle. About a half finger thick, off-white/tan head settled into a thin layer of foam. The beer is inky black and completely opaque. 3/3

Flavor: Complex. Creamy "half & half" taste from the vanilla beans as the sip his the tongue. Bitter chocolate and slight hot of the chillies in the middle. Coffee makes an appearance as you exhale after swallowing the sip and lingers in the aftertaste. 20/20

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied and thick. Carbonation is light but is appropriate for the style. The alcohol and chillies combine to warm the mouth without being "hot". 5/5

Overall: I was excited to see this made its way to my local beverage center. I was less thrilled with the $9 price. Price point aside, this is an excellent example of a true-to-style Imperial Russian Stout. That being said, this is not my favorite style, and at $9 per bottle, I don't see myself ever buying this again. I'm glad to have tried it, though. 9/10

Total score: 48/50
