look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Dark motor oil with a great caramel head and beautiful lacing

Smell - Rich oaky malts up front followed by a train of booze

Taste - Smooth and sweet up front and then bring on the booze

Mouthfeel - very crisp to begin with, but this one leaves quite the after taste

Overall - this one does not hide the 9.5% alcohol at all.

Serving type: bottle

Russian imperial stout From leinies "Craft Beer line" Big eddy . Good for them that there trying to show a little creativity with this IRS but it kind of annoying them pretending to be craft beer makers. This Is a IRS for people who don't normally venture outside of normal leines options like summer shandy or honey weiss. This IRS will not challenge your taste buds and ends up being pretty forgettable.

Serving type: on-tap
