22 oz Bottle bought at Arrowine in Arlington Va.props to Nick for selecting this beer.
Poured into Dogfishhead pint glass.
A: a delictable sinful black and red hued sacloth. Excellent slight sticky swiss milk chocolate froth head that turns into a lovely white lace that really coats the glass after finished. My glass looks like a Jackson Pollock painting.
S: gorgeous dark chocolate nose. Sweet bready malts. Molasses vanilla bean maple syrup. Medium roast costa rican nose. This is one Sweet smelling delicious russian imperial stout.
T: WOW! That is my first impression. What a delicious beer! An amazing imperial stout that will be bought again and again..I will store some of this bad boys for the keep. Taste profile is straight off the bat dark 85% cocoa. African in origin. Rich cream and sweet molasses. Medium expresso roast. Vanilla bean extract slight pomegranate but definately a bright red fruit. Sweet malty breads that tater on waffle cone.
M: A delicious full smooth body. Lushious and chocolate coffee biscuits. The froth kicks in at the back end of things. Tingly and inviting to the gums.
O: this is an amazing and richly complex russian imperial that is not a one trick pony. This beer just entered my top 5 all time Russian imperials joining Epic Big Bad Baptist Surly the Darkness ,Firestone Parabola ,Founders Imperial and now this baby.

First review on BA. Poured entire contents into a large snifter.

Appearance- Pours blacks as night with maybe a quarter inch of head. Spotty lacing that stuck till the end.

Smell- Black cherries, roasted malts, brown sugar/molasses.

Taste- That brown sugar sweetness hit first followed by some dark fruit flavors. Finishes with dark chocolate and some coffee bitterness. Alcohol burn that comes through as it should for the ABV. Dry finish that left my mouth feeling like I had just spit out gum.

Mouthfeel- Smooth with the perfect amount of carbonation.

Overall-I think this was a very solid beer that I would definItely pick up again.
