Live tasting bottle into Duvel Tulip...
Appearance; pours a viscous black color with less than a finger of mocha colored head. When held to light, only the very top fraction of a millimeter appears a cola colored brown... This is a black beer. Retention is non-existent and lacing follows suit.
Smell; roasty malts, coffee, chocolate and slight notes of soy... Hints of dark fruit, raisins and prunes...
Taste; coffee, chocolate and roasty malt flavors jump right out, notes of smoke and slight soy bitterness creep in as well as the slightest notes of dark fruits such as raisins and prunes...
Mouthfeel; smooth and oily, goes down exceptionally smoothly, coats the mouth, and definitely on the full side of full body, but not as thick or chewy as say Ten Fidy...
Overall; this is a damn good beer, and has all of the qualities I can appreciate in a solid Imperial Russian Stout. Doesn't taste a hint of 10%, even just a few degrees above cellar temps... I would absolutely seek this one out again, and would like to thank Peacehammer for gifting me this one!!
