3.79/5 rDev +3.6%
12 oz, 2012 bottle of KGB Russian Imperial Stout.
Black and opaque in the glass, with a semi-durable head. Limited lacing.
Aroma: rich dark and sweet malts and aged alcohol esters.
Flavor: rich and fairly complex, with a hint of whisky that comes with the obviously high, but not harsh, ABV. Lingering flavor of very dark roasted grains.
Feel: full, thick and smooth with some warming. Good, light carbonation.

Dec. 18 '12 on the label so this has aged a year.
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith English tulip glass.
a: Opaque black with the barest glint of clear ruby at the bottom. A two inch tall brown head receded slowly to thick surface foam and dense patterned lacing.
s: Dark chocolate malt.
t: Wonderfully silky smooth dark chocolate and coffee malt followed by a hop bite towards the back of the mouth, which gradually becomes more noticable. The high ABV, however, does not appear prominent. AS it warms, the chocolate/coffee flavor becomes more ashen.
m: The silky viscous sensation is the first noticed on sipping this. Medium to heavy otherwise.
o: An excellent RIS, one of the best I have had. Considering the lower marks many others have given, perhaps this improves signitifantly with age.
