This beer is absolutely incredible. I have been drinking the BCS's over the past couple of months, whenever I could find them (pretty easy to come by in Manhattan) and promised myself to save the last BCS for this review.
It pours a shiny, deep, dark black color with a thick tan head that resides pretty soon and leaves little lacing. It smells of sweet dark fruits, malted barely, coffee, caramel, and chocolate...not just one type but many different varieties of chocolate. The taste is more roasted, with malts, coffee, dark fruits, oak and chocolate coming through - there is burnt chocolate, dark bitter chocolate, and even chocolate syrup. Hardly any hops noticeable over the intense sweetness of this beer. It has a silky yet thick body with a perfectly balanced amount of carbonation.
Truly one of the best Russian Imperial Stouts...it saddens me knowing that if I am convinced this is the last BCS I can find that I will have to wait until next year for another.
Please do yourself a favor and buy a sh*t load of this beer and drink it (not all at once, obviously)...you will thank me.
