look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 2.5
a - dark, no head though, full circles beers are occasionally kind of flat, not sure why.
s - fruity and malty
t - the alcohol comes through with a really fruity spicy sweetness, an interesting flavor but a bit too strong for me.
3 - this is the most interesting part, this sucker warms you up right away starting in the mouth.
d - between the alcohol and the powerful flavor, this isn't very drinkable but worth trying.
notes - they serve this only in half pints, and that's about all i wanted anyway so it worked out just fine.

Appearance: Poured brownish-black with 1 finger, foamy brown head. Mediocre lacing, but there was a defnite head. I must have had a different batch than Gorestorm.
Smell: Brown sugar, caramel, chocolate, and roasted malts. Maybe some cherries as well. Pretty standard imperial stout aroma with a bit more sweetness.
Taste: Really, really sweet. I thought it tasted like milk chocolate, however the brewmaster informed me that he only uses black and caramel malts in the Russian Imperial Stout. I must say that the alcohol was hidden extremely well (listed at 11% ABV). Tasted more like a strong chocolate porter than anything.
Mouthfeel: Thick and oily. Coated the mouth well, and had a great warming effect. Aftertaste was pleasant.
Drinkability: I only sampled 5oz of this one, but figured i might as well add my two cents as there's only one other review. This was a very sweet stout. I don't think I would have wanted an entire 12oz of it. Plus, it costs twice as much as the other beers. I want to try it again, but my first impression wasn't too great.
