T: Slightly sweet. Strong notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso, dark dry fruits. Brown bread and earthy yeasts. Intense bitterness, a mix of roasted malts and herby hops

M: Creamy, heavy full body. Medium to low carbonation. Dry, bitter and roasted aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. Perfect Russian Imperial Stout

Appearance: Black with ruby on the edges. Spotted lacing. Quickly dissipating head that was rocky and chunky.

Nose: vinegar, resin, pepper, pear, nougat, slight bread.

Taste: Perfect mouthfeel. smooth and syrupy, velvety and delicate. Hides it's ABV extremely well. Raisins with some alcohol hotness in the middle and at the end.

Notes: 2012 vintage. An excellent example of an imperial Russian stout.
