Bottle poured into glass. The best lacing I have ever seen. Completely surrounds the glass and retained throughout. The head is super thick and creamy, it is a brown color. The beer itself is black. The aroma knocks you back with strong roasted malt, burnt, coffee. The taste is fantastic from start to finish. Powerful roasted malt, coffee, molasses, caramel. Creamy and chewy in the mouth. Full bodied, complex but balanced sweetness and bitterness. One of the best beers I have ever had, and possibly the best Russian Imperial Stout.
