Heard about this beer somehow, and finally got around to trying one out.

A: pour is opaque black, thick tan head that fades fast

S: roasts and malts, cocoa

T: demands comparison to North Coast's Old Rasputin, as it has some similarities, but this is a far more bitter beer; less sweet, but still as hearty and tasty. Sharp, earthy, mocha.

M: clean for a stout - soft coat with bitter afternotes; espresso aftertaste

O: really good. Toward the bitter end of the Russian Imperial stout spectrum, and very satisfying.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottled on Oct 7, 2011.

Pours black with a dark brown head.

Smells of roasted malts and hops.

Taste follows the nose with some bitter chocolate and finishes with a nice bitterness.

Mouthfeel is meddium to full with a little bit of creamyness and nice carbonation.

Overall this is my go to stout for now. I also use this brew to mix in and make sub par IPAs drinkable.

3.55/5  rDev -13%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Black, with a thin cap of tan head that just sits there.

Aroma: Roasted malt with some cocoa notes and a touch of sweetness.

Taste: Creamy with a lot of roasted malt flavor up front, then some chalky cocoa mixing in building to a kind of burnt chocolate taste on the back end. Its strangely astringent yet creamy at the same time. Finish is lingering with chalky cocoa notes.

The Rest: A nice beer. It has the sweetness and creaminess of a milk stout but with a much more assertive roasted malt presence.
