Dark, rich, and layers upon layers of different chocolate notes. Some earthiness with hints of roast and coffee. Smoooth booziness from the barrel aging. Medium body with a slight chewiness. I love this beer and cannot get enough of it. It really is one of Marshalls best.

I don't like russian imperial stouts. This one is different. This one is special. I was extremely shocked by how impressive a beer this was. They knocked this one out the box.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours thick & black with a thumb of mocha colored head. Stellar lacing & slightly above average head retnetion

S: Vanilla, figs, caramel, a little bit of booze & Bourbon notes

T: Follows the nose, some figgy & chicory notes underneath up front, abit of leafy hops as well. Carob, some roasty notes, vanilla, oakyness & a bit more caramel, plus a touch of iron as this warms. Finishes dry/oaky, with a kiss of booze, caramel, vanilla, molasess & figs

MF: Chewy, smooth, subtle carbonation, carbination picks once warm

Drinks easy for the style & ABV, probably the best beer I've had from Marshall, either this or El Cuy Cuy. Marshall, make more of this!
