Perseverance Ale, Alaskan Brewery, Russian Imperial Stout, Stout Brewed with Birch Syrup and Fireweed Honey, 9 % ABV, 1 pint, 6 luid ounces. Alaskan Brewing Company, Brewed and Bottled in Juneau, Alaska.
Solid black, slim head, soon gone.
Aromatics, dark malt, rich, bittersweet, cocoa, blackstrap molasses, some minor charcoal and smoke. Overall, very subtle.
Taste: more darkness, more sweetness, but lacks depth.
That was too quick. I need to give it some tick, let the brew breath.
So, again…sweet, slick, …roasty. Toasty. Charred, but …not really. Starts…but doesn't get there. Tasty, …boozy…but, lacking extra oomph. Sometimes called "character." Also, "zazz." At other times, "zork."
This could be a lot better. It should be a lot better. Thicker, maybe? More intense, perhaps?
But, nice. If you want nice, go for this.
