I visited Moonshine today for lunch and tried their sampler platter. The Putin Britches was a very good imperial russian style stout. The beer pour an almost opaque deep rich dark amber. The head was slightly off-white with good lac on the glass. The smell carried hints of chocolate with sligth roast and coffee. The taste carried more coffee and balanced by dark chocolate and roast. The mouthfeel is a medium body with subtle carbonation. Overall I would have wanted a bit more body....but it is not a bad stout.
