A- Poured from a 12 oz bottle resulting in a huge creamy mocha head that reminded me of a root beer float. Thick, very dark and opaque. Excellent lacing all the way through.

S- Dark roast coffee, chocolate, raisins.

T- Sweet and malty up front giving way to some mild bitterness and carbon astringency. Faint hops flavor with some coffee notes as well. For something with 9% ABV, the alcohol stays in the background.

M- Rich and smooth, full bodied and gently carbonated.

O- Years ago this was the first Imperial Russian Stout I tried. It was a revelation after only having Guiness as a representative of the Stout style. HIghly recommended. Never say die!
