Bottle date Dec 10 2012, stored in my cellar. I have been spoiled by Founders RIS and while this RIS is not bad, it falls well short of the Founders. Would like to try a fresher release on draft, but not likely to purchase a bottle again.

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.
