From tasting notes. Rich espresso and dark malt on the nose. Very rich espresso and malts with hints of sherry or port. Surprisingly not a hop bomb. Fruit, some chocolate. Very smooth, a very good Russian Imperial Stout. Very fine, soft carbonation. Creamy, chewy. This is stupendous.

From 2013, espresso has faded but still a rich delicious beer
