Style | ABV
Russian Imperial Stout |  3.50% ABV

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Rather than a typical Imperial Stout, which quickly decimates you and buries you in the yard, this delicate beauty wraps a warm scarf around your neck and just tightens it, ever… so… gently. Exclamation point optional, but preferred.

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.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.

The beer is near black with a thin, wispy collar. The aroma is bigger than anticipated, given the low gravity of the beer. Typical Mikkeller Danish roast scents, rich chocolates, malt, some bitter coffee notes. The flavor is decent, but I feel that the beer is too thin. I know this is intended to be a sessionable version of the Beer Geek series, but this is lacking in depth and body. Fun to try, but one and done for me.
