I'm still shuddering from excitement and respect after sampling this beer @ Redbones tonight. What a treat! I mean seriously, this is the first and last time that I'll ever taste this beer. It's the last time it was brewed, and this is the last round to hit us in the US. Very well matured, extremely smooth and palatable. An absolute classic, with a lot a kick after all these years.

Our pile of samples still had dust on them ... from like 10+ years ago.

4.85/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Very complex aroma and flavor of walnut/pecan, pears in brandy, campfire, dried fruit with a hint of green olive, roast coffee and cream, vanilla and figs.

Finish is quite lengthy, and the overall effect is elegant, layered and restrained, while at the same time ebullient.

A marvelous tribute to the granddaddy of all Imperial Russian Stouts.
