Pours black as a White Walkers soul with a very huge head...I had to slow down my pour to make sure i didnt over do it.Slight lacing and retention...so far so good.Smell is licorice and malt.First taste is not what I was expecting but maybe because of the Ommegang style I expected the siginiture taste of the Belgian style.This is NOT a chocolate bomb stout for sure.It does seem to melt in the mouth a bit but not a thick aftertaste.Do not let the name fool you.This is not a Russian Imperial Stout.This is much lighter and at first I was let down but after my first glass I get what they were trying to pull off here.Not bad at all. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
