Painted bomber, always nice for glass cutting or homebrew purposes. Pours black, 1" brown head. Looks good. Aroma is roast, dark fruit. I should also note this was aged 5 years before I drank it.

Taste had more of the dark fruit and roasted malt bitterness, but mouth feel was smooth enough that the bitterness didn't dominate. Hid the alcohol decently. No significant oxidation notes. This hit the hallmarks for style of an export and Russian Imperial Stout.

$7 a bomber I think, I dunno, that comes out to an expensive 6 pack. Would prefer 12oz bottles of this.

It pours a little the and the aromas are not strong. The flavor is very good, with coffee notes and lots of malt. The mouthfeel is solid but could be smoother to really make this stand out.
