3.9/5 rDev -4.2%
Pour: Dark, black with a nice tan head which clings to the glass on the way down
Smell: Light smell of roasted malt, coffee and faint hops
Taste: Earthy taste, roasted malt and just the right amount of hops. Finishes burnt malt taste along with coffee and chocolate flavors.
A good stout. Would recommend

4.1/5 rDev +0.7%
Darkest brown, khaki foam. A backbone of breakfast blend coffee is elevated by notes of dark chocolate and wood char. Evenly balanced by a smooth herbal hoppiness and a medium dry finish. What makes it remarkable is its evenly balanced, smooth character that deftly walks a tightrope between boring tameness and obnoxious boldness. A good baseline for the style.

3.53/5 rDev -13.3%
12oz bottle served in a snifter.
pours the standard RIS deep mahogany / borderline black while yielding a short-lived 3/4" khaki toned head.
nose isn't quite as bold as i look for. subtle notes of roasted malt, some coffee, and a touch of dark chocolate.
flavor also doesn't exactly bowl me over. more of the same with roasted malt, a little coffee, and a bit of dark chocolate; also some hoppy characters to it. not bad by any means, just sort of unexciting. medium bodied mouthfeel, medium carbonation.
overall, an above average russian imperial stout but not much above. while it's relatively tasty and enjoyable and although i would more than welcome another, with all the great takes on this style that are out there it's closer to a middle of the pack RIS than anything exceptional, at least in my mind.
