BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cambridge Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
cambridgebrewingcompany.com

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
THE CROWD GOES WILD! A smooth bass line of roasted notes establishes the deep end beneath arpeggios of complex chocolate malt, while power chords of caramelized grain open up to an extended malty jam. Black barley teases treacle character and wades into a velvety sea of oak-derived vanilla and toasted coconut tones. Sustained improvisation of fruitiness modulates to an intense finale, and encores with a rich, espresso-roasted reprise, a capella.

Aged ~18 months. Pours like a beer-lion out of the bottle: huge head erupts from the bottom of the glass and lifts straight up. Bubbly, puffy and foamy before it sags and craters above the viscous black body. Gorgeous. The aroma is dark chocolate, oak, bourbon, figs, char, vanilla. The barrel characteristics shine. Although there's a fig-like fruitiness it's less pronounced than when fresh. Seems to be the oak and bourbon have filled the gap, which is right up my alley. Velvety smooth and marshmallow soft - the liquid allocates tastes of chocolate, roasted grains, char, oak, vanilla and toasted coconut. Nice alcohol warmth but a far cry from what the ~11% ABV is capable of. Outstanding brew.

Maybe there's a decent beer underneath it all but couldn't get over the obvious qualities of a lactic infection. Overcarbed, glaringly sweet and pretty tart. Worse than bcbs' issues

poured from bottle, couldnt find a date.

black with a kahki head that recedes quickly, leaves a few spots of lacing.

burbon, roasty malt, chocolate, licorice, light vanilla and toasted wood on the nose.

sweet molasses and caramel up front. also getting chocolate and a slightly bitter coffee/espresso flavor. nice touch of the bourbon barrel on the finish. mouthfeel leaves something to be desired, but its not bad. a little much on the carbonation in my opinion, makes it feel kind of watery and light.

overall definitely a nice stout but maybe a little much on the caramel sweetness for me. kind of found the overwhelming caramel flavor to be a bit much by the end of the bottle, and i thought the taste became a bit too sour or funky as it warmed, maybe i was just getting sick of it. I dont necessarily think I had a bad bottle, but especially as the beer warmed, the flavor profile I was getting was not nearly as enjoyable as other examples of BA stouts. however it did have some appealing aspects and ill probably try to get another bottle and hang onto it for a while.

A dark black beer with a thick light brown head.
Lots of chocolate in the aroma. Vanilla and booze. Something roasted.
Big chocolate taste. Leather. Vanilla and booze.
Big beer, better as it warms.
