3.98/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a goblet.
A: Deep, black as night color. Yields a dark tan colored head that maintains its presence throughout the 12oz session. Beautiful lacing all over the glass.
S: Overly Boozy. Rum, raisins, even some coffee. If dry has a smell, it's there.
T: Follows the nose, I get a lot of rum-like raisin flavors with coffee notes in the background. Chocolate is present but surprisingly not very prominent. Rich flavor.
M: Quite thin for a Russian Imperial. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Bitter finish.
O: The mouthfeel is would lend to high drinkability if it were not for the booziness. Nonetheless it is highly drinkable for a big RIS. Not a session beer, nor should it be. Well worth repeated visits. I like it a lot for the price and the ABV.
Serving type: bottle
