look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Dark, opaque, black body, very fine carbonation makes a small amount of creamy light brown head. Classic and inviting stout characteristics.

Smell - Heavy, roasty,chocolaty, and slightly smoky aroma

Taste - The thick, dark, chocolaty malt dominates the begininning of the taste and smoothy gives way to a slight bitter tinge of hops at the end of the taste. A very well balanced flavor, and drinkable. A well crafted beer and example of what a stout should be.

Mouthfeel - Thick, smooth, creamy, and delightful

Overall - A great example of a Russian Imperial stout that is readily available in most places. A must have
