On tap at Max's (from notes)

A: Dark, dark brown.

S: Light but espresso, black coffee and dark chocolate with a burnt and roasty scent.

T: Watery coffee. Light. A bit roasty but that is it.

M: Watery and smooth.

O: Sessionable stouts like this seem to be a rare thing, and probably for good reason, it is hard to do this style justice. It is similar to extreme session IPAs, in that it is hard to truly pull off well.

Draft pint at Map Room. Black body with brownish edges and a finger of light tan foam on the surface. Good coverage and lasting retention with a little bit of a frothy collar around the edges.

Light dry roast in the aroma, mellow and smooth like a porter.

Flavor is moderately roasty with notes of bakers chocolate, nutty toasted malt, and a lingering aftertaste of dark roast malt as well. Nicely rounded and not at all astringent. Smooth and light bodied, very sessionable. The pint disappeared pretty fast. Abandon style hangups, it's not going to adhere to any standard RIS framework, this is more of a small beer version of one. It's the antithesis of Bourbon County, which is the joke that seems to be missed by quite a few.

Poured on tap into a snifter glass at Churchkey DC.

Dark walnut black to mahogany hued edges. Fairly creamy looking tan collar presented with good staying power.

Great bouquet on this brew. Thick ripping roasted malts, wonderful airy and dry. Griany action and a big hint of dry roasted salted peanuts. Great smelling and large.

Palate comes with Mild style senses, very wet and clean so hard to rank, but it is only a 3.5 abv beer. Great grain and roast flavors on first sip. Tonnes of char and pan gravy. Intersting aftertaste is almost meaty and hints at potroast.

A real unique beer with russian large imperial notes and dark English mild senses. Perhaps Imperial Mild isnt so far off the beaten path as I thought.

On-tap at Little Goat.

A. Very dark cola color with a small light-tan head.

S. Prevalent roast, dry grain, chocolate, coffee bean. Everything is here but a little muted.

T. Moderate yet smooth roast up front, a bit of cocoa sweetness, light ashiness, bland finish.

M. Between light and medium-bodied with active, almost-frothy carbonation. Very drinkable due to the undetectable alcohol level.

O. Pretty nice for what it is intended to be, which is essentially a joke. Outside of its conceptual value, I'm not really tempted to order another.

Served in a shaker pint glass at SmallBar - Division.

Bachelor Party-Palooza 2013 continues to rock the City with a first: a "Russian Serf Stout". Take that, empire! Anyway, this stuff pours a straight obsidian topped by a finger of sienna foam. The nose comprises chocolate syrup, roasted malts, and a bit of dusty grass. The taste brings in more of the same, with the flavors somehow melding into a general softness that precludes any intensity and maximizes gustatory enjoyment. The body is a solid medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and thickly smooth feel. Overall, this beer is downright amazing. It brings in the feel and flavors of a big, beefy stout, yet weighs in at only 3.5%, increasing its drinkability exponentially. I look forward to seeing more of this in my future, indeed.
