I've been aging this Russian Imperial Stout since last year. It has held up quite well, I get a lot of raspberry in the smell, nice chocolate and oak flavors in the taste. The carbonation is light and appropriate for a robust stout. There is some astringency as it warms and that takes away from the beer, but that comes with the territory.

Dark, roast malt, fairly harshly bitter, coffee, with a touch of raspberry sweetness. Just to overly harsh to be enjoyable.
