This is my next in a line of RIS I've been tasting before the brutal michigan winter finally winds down. The pour is quite handsome with a near black body and dark tan head. The head lasts well into the pour and when it does give way it leaves a very nice film and silky tan lacing. The nose is a little unremarkable with subtle notes of dark chocolate (duh), coffee, burnt sugar, and rroasted prunes, figs, and dates. The mouthfeel is coating and slightly sticky., but strictly in the best of ways. The flavor greatly triumphs over the aroma. It is a deep and rich blend of Belgian dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, burnt fruits, and deeply roasted malts. This is an incredibly robust and delicious beer. While not my favorite Russian Imperial, this is without a doubt, a stout that I would come back to anytime. The beautiful bitterness of coffee and burnt sugar last in the mouth for hours after the beer is finished. Well done!
