A: pours a very dark coffee black color, dark brownish black head
S: coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, alcohol,
T: very rich, dark chocolate, kind of coats your mouth with chocolatey flavor. I get a big vanilla flavor too.
M: medium/ heavy body
O: good heavy stout, alcohol isn't very perceiveable, super rich. I'm still not sure what difference between Russian and American stouts are but oh well.
