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

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Black and opaque with a reddish brown low head that kicks up minimally and then settles out quickly. Low, but rich aroma of molasses and brown sugar.

Rich and intense flavors of molasses, espresso, burnt caramel, ashie and acrid, woody, peppery bites in the finish, accented with subtle hops that add delicate but flavorful character to the flavor.

Moderate mouthfeel, even carbonation. Good beer, but just a bit too ashen for me.
