I'm being lame and just ramping up the overall to get the score higher. This is an example of a beer that is more than the sum of its parts. It's a quintessentially well done non-BA Russian Imperial Stout.

Super dark black brew, with a dark brown head with OK retention.

Smells of chocolate and roasted barley, tinged with a touch of molasses.

Flavor follows, with varying strengths. Lighter roast, chocolate malt, molasses, caramel, a hint of espresso.

Thick and oily; long wet finish. Exceptionally easy to drink, although it comes off a touch flat.

My only complaint is this brew drinks too easily; there's no bite. Many stouts achieve this through hops, extra alcohol, or massive roasty bitterness. This beer has none of that, and yet also doesn't quite merit dessert stout status. Very nice, but it left me wanting more.

Pours an opaque very dark brown almost black color, like motor oil with similar viscosity and khaki colored head. Roasted malts, oats, chocolate, and some coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied, thick and very silk like on the palate. Finishes with dark chocolate and roast.
