I've bought this the past three(?) years, so I'm amending my previous review to keep it on the real...
A: pitch black, baby. C'mon, you know you can't see through it. As expected, oil black, dark tan head of foam; thin froth lid remains for a while, as do the lacings along the sides of the glass (a tulip)
S: chocolate, rich earth, coffee notes, molasses tinge, beer - the stout perfecta. Roasted malt, sweet black coffee and bitter chocolate
T: good - a reliable and steady stout, bittersweet, notes of cocoa, burnt malt
M: bold, oscillates between dry and sweet; some stickiness
D: you can drink this without getting sloppy - the richness of the brew will naturally curb your speed - enjoy: trust the beer to work with you. It isn't a contest. The journey, not the end. The journey, not the end.
Gotta respect Brooklyn Brewery - this brew is a staple winter stout, and is among the best. Has a sharper, more potent palate presentation than some other Russian Imperials I've had. Less subdued than say, an Old Rasputin, approaches the sweetness of a Bourbon County coffee stout (sans the bourbon, 'natch).
Brooklyn in the house.
