Pours pitch black with a thin mocha head. The head dies off pretty quickly but a small portion hangs on leaves some small lacing. The aroma has some big alcohol esters with hints of dark roasted malt. The taste takes it up, with some nice roasted malt, a hint of licorice, a little vanilla and oak. The body is just right, not too slick, not to thin, but not chewy, either. A great, full-flavor Russian Imperial stout.

Poured this beer into my trusty stemless tulip glass.
A: It poured black and viscous with a tan head, which dissipated quickly but with tremendous residual lacing.
S: Coffee, bitter chocolate, nut, boozy
T: Soy, herbal, coffee- initially served too cold. When it warmed up, cocoa and nutty flavors came through.
M: Medium-heavy mouthfeel with decent carbonation
Overall, this was a really solid beer. Would I have it again? Yep.

A: Pours a deep black color with good looking viscosity. Creamy tan head forms quickly and rises up to about 2 fingers. Light lacing after each sip.

S: Deep and earthy smell. Lots of roasted malt, charred wood, wet earth, dark chocolate and just a touch of dark fruit. Definitely liking the way this smells.

T: Just a ton of roasted malt goodness in here. There are hints of dark coffee and tobacco and maybe just a trace of toffee, but this is mostly just heavily roasted malt. As it warms, the backend starts to feel a touch watery and I get a day old coffee flavor. A pretty tasty beer overall though.

Got this in an extra as a trade.

First sniff, uh oh. Sourness.

First sip, yep infected. Total sourness, incredibly bitter. Like sour milk. Took one more sip and down the drain it went. Was pretty excited to try a fairly high rated RIS but this was one of 3 beers I've had to dump.
