A drinkable Russian Imperial? That's a dangerous notion BBC decided to run with. In comparison to other Baltic style imperials this one is far beyond the competition. The only problem with this beer is you can only have a couple...because too many will find you on the floor.

A: very deep brown - no ruby at all at the edges; 1 finger light brown head that receded to a thin cap; nice, thick lacing;

S: coffee, mocha, molasses, vanilla - almost smells bourbon barrel aged;

T: follows the nose; alcohol is warming, but not harsh; low to moderate bitterness at the finish;

M: full bodied; coats the mouth; moderate carbonation;

O: this is a big beer;
