3.94/5  rDev -2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a nonic pint from a 12 ounce nitro bottle.

A- Beautiful cascading results from the aggressive pour. A thick, milkshake-like head forms and retains itself well. The body is pitch black. 4.5

S- There's lots of booze on the nose, but also a strong aroma of oatmeal, vanilla and toffee and hints of chocolate. There's some barrel aroma there too. 4.25

T- Barrel flavor continues, as does the booze, but the vanilla and toffee do too. Dark chocolate adds another layer of flavor. 3.75

M- Smooth and creamy for the most part, the booze level undoes some of this beer's greatness. 3.75

O- Many great qualities shine here, but the booziness is a bit hard to ignore. This is a good beer, really good, but only could get to excellent with age that apparently won't work due to the nitrogen. 4

Serving type: nitro-bottle

3.84/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Note that it's called "Nitro" but there's no nitro widget in the bottle.

Appearance: totally black, permitting no light through; head is a thin finger of creamy tan foam. I like it.

Smell: a big, creamy, toffee aroma which I really like. There's an astringent quality as well, but I am OK with the sweeter elements this big bad candy brew.

Taste: sweet, with a toffee and caramel character mixed with a bit of ashy roastiness. The astringency of the aroma is stronger in the flavor, which for me is a misstep, but overall it's not bad. Hops are green and vegetal and bitterness is moderate for the sweetness.

Mouthfeel: big body with a silky-smooth creaminess.

Overall: not a bad Russian imperial stout, but it lacks some of the flavor complexity that I favor in the style.

Serving type: bottle
