Style | ABV
Russian Imperial Stout |  8.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
An imperial stout — a classic style so rich and flavorful that it was once the private beverage of Russian Czars. The profile is malty sweet, hop bitter roasted, full-bodied, alcoholic and deliciously complex. Beer doesn’t get much more intense than this!

Actually had this at the La Mesa BJ's.

Poured from a draft into a pint glass at BJ’s Brewery in La Mesa, Calif. Color was black with some brown coming through. Tons of head as I know mine was the first beer of the new keg. Tan lacing on the top that lasted throughout. Film on the sides as well.

Smell was coffee first with some hints of chocolate and roasty malts.

Taste was similar to the nose. Coffee up front, giving way to dark chocolate and roasty malts.

Full body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Smooth finish.

An OK stout that I think would have been better had I not had the first one of the new pour. I guess I’d have to give it another go.
